Being Thankful....

Sometmes it is so easy to dwell upon the weaknesses, mistakes and failures we have made in life. Often when we are faced with truth - it hurts. The enemy likes to take what is truth and use it against us, reminding us of our weakness, mistakes and failures. My heart has been reflecting this morning on God's grace.

I am thankful that God came to dwell among us in the flesh bringing both grace and truth.(John 1:14;17)

I am thankful that it is because of God's grace that I have been saved, not because of anything I have done. (Acts 15:11;Rom 11:6; Eph 2:8)

I am thankful that His grace is sufficient, for His power is perfected in weakness.(2 Cor 12:9-10)

It can be so easy to take people for granted, especially our husbands. My husband is the most amazing man, and a real gift from God.

I am thankful that he loves me, even in those moments when I am sure that I'm unlovable.

I am thankful that while I was away he did the laundry, vaccuumed, and kept the house clean.

I am thankful that he is here with me, walking beside me, willing to be my friend.

Speaking of friends. I believe God gives us friends to help us walk through the tough times, and to share the laughter of just having fun.
I am thankful for life long friends that can pick up (after not seeing eachother in five years) right where life is now and you don't have to explain your history-you already know it!

I am thankful for friends who allow us a moment in time to totally forget life and just have fun, laugh and be silly together.
