Things I am Thankful For:
My Lord and Savior
His work on the Cross so I could be free
The Word of God
My pastor, Robert McLaughlin, and his faithful teaching
Rebound (If we confess our sins He is faithful and Just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness)
The fact that “there is now no condemnation to those who are in Christ.”
Living in America!
…And the soldiers who’ve sacrified to provide and defend it
Roads and highways
The American medical system
Fighter jets and warthogs (and living under their flight paths)
Email and blogs
People who email me!
People who read my blog!
Living in Tucson, Arizona
Daily Bible Class
The filling of the Holy Spirit
God’s tailor made plan for my life
The pattern for it set by my Lord
Being a New Creature, set free from the power of the flesh
Trials and difficulties, for they give me the opportunity to trust God under suffering — something I can never do in heaven
Obnoxious people, for they give me the opportunity to apply God’s love and forgiveness.
Living in the End times, for it gives me the opportunity to see God’s word validated as foretold events unfold before our eyes.
Royal Family Friends
Long, deep, doctrinal conversations
Good health, and the ability to exercise
The gift to write and readers who respond to it
Having six published books and the opportunity to write a seventh
Quigley! What a magnificent creature he is!
Turkey and dressing
Stamping and card making
Receiving the peace that passes understanding, even if only sporadically
A good book
Music and singing
Thanksgiving dinner leftovers
Chocolate chip Cookies!
Knowing He will never leave me nor forsake me
Knowing that my Lord controls history and all will unfold according to His purpose regardless of how things might appear
Knowing I am His bride, His jewel, the apple of His eye
So blessed, so thankful
I hope you’ll take the time over this holiday to reflect on the myriad of ways that God has blessed and provided.
