I’m so thankful . . .

For the fact that everyone in my immediate family professes faith in Christ and expresses that faith openly through prayer and service. I’m so thankful that my children look to God for help as they face challenges in their day.

I’m thankful that my daughter feels sadness at the end of the day when she confesses that she “didn’t think about God all day.” I’m thankful that the thought of excluding God from her day causes her to rededicate herself toward walking with God the next day.

I’m thankful that my son asks the Lord to help him as he strives to give his best effort academically, athletically and relationally. I’m thankful that he evidences his faith through compassion and empathy and kindness and his work ethic.

I’m thankful that both children were happy and somewhat excited when they were told that we would be spending Thanksgiving serving dinner to the community at our church.

I’m thankful that my husband is a man of faith and actively strives makes his decisions based on that faith rather than on self-serving motivation.


I’m participating in a month of Thanksgiving hosted by Rebecca Writes. If you want to join in, post something you are thankful for and then link up over at Rebecca’s blog!
