Siesta Sue (hiker-mama) has been so upbeat lately, she's inspired me to be in a thankful mood. Her blogs are always so spiritual and uplifting that I thought I would try to be like her! :0)
So, here goes:
Ever since our last NOG meeting, I've felt convicted to be a more positive person. Siesta Janel (miss wanderlust) encouraged me to be grateful, even for the little things. She reminded us to concentrate on the things we can be thankful for, even in the midst of the "bad" times.
Eph. 4:29 says:
"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."
The rest of chapter 4 is also excellent, challenging us to be kind, compassionate and forgiving.
Here are 10 things I am thankful for this Thursday:
future hope & plans God has for us
the fact that I get to impact my grandson in godly ways
the love of Christ
the love of family & the family of God
friends who are sooooooooo supportive and encouraging
the Word of God
Have a thankful Thursday!
