Thank you for today, I am grateful for today is all I have...'Phil Keaggy'

So I am beginning a series in which I count my blessings instead of my troubles. Join in if you feel so inclined. It is good to give thanks for the good things God gives us. :)

Psalm 107:1 'Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.

I am thankful for:

  • Getting of work early tonight!
  • My dad driving me home so I didn't have to drive in the snow.
  • A good day at work.
  • One more day till the weekend! :)
  • My wonderful family who are my dearest friends in addition to being my family. I love them so much.
  • My school bill working out.
  • One more month till it is officially spring! Woo hoo!
  • Friends to meet up with for lunch and/or a conversation.
  • emails from friends away in college.
  • that I haven't gotten sick (although a lot of people around here have. Keeping my fingers crossed here. )
  • and I can't forget my dogs who are always doing something silly and make me laugh and love me even when I'm not very lovable. They're so sweet.
  • my braces, even though they are uncomfortable and make my teeth hurt sometimes.
So these are some of the things I am grateful for. If I look at the big picture I can see how spoiled I am. I have so much while others have so little. And this goes beyond material things. I'm healthy (for the most part...being allergic to a lot of stuff is hard but I don't have a terminal disease or anything), I'm loved, I'm cared for, I'm employed...I should be rejoicing all the time. And that is my goal.

What is everyone else thankful for?

I plan to occasionally journal the things I am grateful for here on this blog so when I look back at what was going on at this time in my life I will remember how blessed I was and how God provided for me in so many ways.

Love to all,
