Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey


Week #4
I am going on a journey with Truth 4 the Journey.
The aim is to list 5 things which you are thankful to God for!

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise is name.  Psalm 100:4


1.  Sad to admit but sometimes when I sit down to write this "thankful post" nothings comes to ming right away.  I am Thankful for Truth 4 the Journey for putting this weekly post out there for us to participate in.  It makes me stop and realize how blessed I truly am.

2.  I stepped on the scale this morning and it wasn't nice to me.  That shows that God has blessed us with food in our cupboards and for that I am Thankful.  Now to stop abusing that food.

3.  Last night I fell asleep in the chair watching a television program.  I was some what disgusted with myself because I did not get a couple of things done that I wanted to.  I am Thankful however for the time of rest that God blessed me with.

4.  I am Thankful for a God that assures us he is there and has everything under control.  We just need to open our eyes and look for him, he's everywhere.

5.  I am Thankful for the wonder life mate/husband God has blessed me with.  Among many many things I love him for breaking down and letting us get a kitten.  A kitten that is full of life, joy, and just makes me laugh.

Laughing at no.2...But it's true. Thank God for the foods we have on our table. Love Psalm 100. It reminds us to always be thankful for His everlasting kindness. Blessings to you sister.

I loved how you found thankfulness in spite of falling asleep in front of the tv. It's just how we look at things that can often cause us to stumble. I like your way of thinking!!!

Sheryl,

I have those moments when Thursdays roll around and I really have to think about it. Perhaps that is why I have started my gratitude journal again, and each night, I list three things I am thankful for. If I can only stay awake long enough.

I know what you mean about falling asleep so early now!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
