NEVER take your health for granted! I am also very thankful to my family, especially my sister Becky for everything she does for me, my husband and all of my friends for their prayers. Thank you!

hi sue,
nice to meet you.I'm new to the blogging site but one thing (among a million others) that I'm thankful for is ..LIFE. Before the good Lord saved me from the pit of hell, I tried to end the life He gave me, (5 times).Little did I know then what I know now..And that was.."The enemy wanted a depraved, lost soul like mine, but the creator of my soul wouldn't let him take it,& so that wonderful spare DROP OF BLOOD, fell upon my dark heart, revealing to me that LIFE IS SO PRECIOUS, especially when in HIM IS LIFE AND I AM....IN HIM.
Thank you for meeting me today.If I didnt have life to be thankful for I guess, we would have never met.God bless your every breathe cause life is precious...

Like everyone else, I have so much to be thankful for, but for this week I'm specifically thankful for keeping me safe on a 10-hour drive that I made alone. I've done this drive alone before, but it doesn't lessen the thankfulness I feel each time that I make it safely and for the most past uneventfully.

Brazen Hussey's said...

I am so thankful for the faithfulness of Christ to this unfaithful follower. Despite my worst, He withheld not His best. I've brought nothing to the table but a cup full of sins needing forgiveness, and He drank it to the dregs on my children's wife's behalf.

I am so thankful that our Lord said, "It is finished." Our debt is paid in full.

--JMH (for Tasha)

PS: you can enter us twice, love the blog. As a dad to 4 girls and 2 sons so far, I'm recommending your site to them for devotions. Thanks for the great work on this faith-building site!

Grace said...
