Thankful Thursday

It's the little things I am thankful for
like...

the start of a new day
a smile from a beloved friend
a phone call to say I care
a gentle rain on the roof
a hug
the first snow fall of a new day
watching a bird soar in the sky
sitting next to my husband,
holding his hand
listening to the sounds of the night
the sound of a newborn's cry



It's the big things I am thankful for
like...

the Gospel
forgiveness of sin
God's unconditional love
God's work in my life
Jesus paying for my sin
each day God allows me to serve Him
Grace
my life's journey
the gift of my children
grandchildren
a godly husband who cherishes me

  2. I'm thankful for the big things...like the fact that for some reason God allowed me to be a part of His plan for your life..since the 8th grade!

    and...

    the small things...like the fact that I get to peek into your life each day, by reading your blog...it somehow makes it seem like we're not that far apart!
