This is a fifth Tuesday, so it’s off the radar of my four-blog-a-month schedule. So today, I’m going to list some of the many things I’m thankful for, in no particular order:
I’m thankful for a warm house. Many people in this world have nothing, and I have a lovely place to call my own, a refuge.
I’m thankful we get along well with our kids and their spouses, and that the grandkids all love to come for a visit.
I’m thankful for health. We all have our issues, but learning to be thankful in spite of them is a gift. People prefer to hang out with positive people, even those who have health issues.
I’m thankful for chocolate!
I’m thankful for speed. As I age, I have less energy and don’t move as easily or quickly as I used to. But I can sit behind the wheel of my truck and take off. (I try to stay within the speed limit.)
I’m thankful for laughter. If you follow my Facebook page, you’ll know that. I have an off-the-wall sense of humor, so we may not laugh at the same things, but that’s okay. Different folks.
I’m thankful each morning offers a fresh start.
I’m thankful for my country, Canada, which, although it’s not perfect, stacks up pretty good compared to many. So far we’re relatively free to live according to our conscience and wishes.
Most of all, I’m thankful that I know where I’ve come from and where I’m going. Created by God for His good pleasure and gifted by Him to do His will, journeying toward a land where there will be no tears or sorrow or death or sadness. I’m thankful that Jesus has revealed himself to me and has promised me eternal life, starting now.
Blessings to you!
