Thankful Thursday

wow--where did this week go? its thursday already and that means its thankful thursday day. is that redundant?

Lord, we have so much to be thankful here in America. i often wonder how my life would have been different had i been born or grown up in a different country. i am thankful to have been born to christian parents in America. to have grown up attending church and hearing the Word of God preached. it is a privilege i never want to take for granted.

Lord, i'm thankful for the beautiful fall weather we are having here. i'm thankful that where i live i don't have to deal with hurricanes, tropical storms, tornadoes, or floods. i pray that you would be with those people who have been displaced and have suffered loss.

Lord, i'm thankful that my hubby is enjoying his college classes and is focused on going forward with his new career. i'm thankful that the commission for the blind is footing most of the bill to allow us, a couple with limited resources, to pursue this new track in our life. we don't take it for granted that we are being helped by our govt's generosity. and i'm thankful that my hubby studies hard and wants to get straight A's.

every thursday Iris over at Sting My Heart hosts this thankful thursday. if you'd like to join in, or see what others are thankful for, head over to Iris' blog. you'll be blessed.

Yes indeed, I am thankful that God placed my soul in the body of an American woman who delivered me on American soil and raised me in a Christian home.

We are blessed.

Thanks for coming by my blog. I, too, am thankful for having grown up in an christian home and with Godly parents. Isn't is such a blessing. I don't take that for granted, although, I am sure I did, when I was younger.

I hope you will come by for Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. We have lots of good post to share and would love for you to join.

What a sweet Thankful post! I, too, am thankful for being born and raised in America. I've travelled to third world countries, I've seen the squaller they live in and the hardships they must endure. I am most deeply blessed and gratiful.

Have a blessed weekend.
