Thankful Thoughts Hop

Well, I don't usually have the time to participate in blog hops any more, but I thought I would take a moment to do so.  So here goes.

I am thankful for so many things in my life.  I get tired of people who complain, and so you won't find complaints here--only thanks.

I am thankful first and foremost for my salvation.  God loved me so much that He sent His Son to die for me, and I stand here forgiven of my sins and facing an eternity with Him.  No matter how many times I say thank you to God, it will never be enough.  I am in awe of His wonderful gift to me, and I can only hope and pray that my life will be a testament to His love, grace and mercy.  May many more embrace the gift He has given.

I secondly am thankful for my family.  I have a daughter who continually excels in school and cares about others.  She is a reason for me to continue on.  I have a mother who continues to provide for my needs, and she puts up with a lot from me at times.  I am not the ideal daughter, but she accepts my imperfections.  She has endured a lot in her lifetime, and I am grateful.  I am grateful for a brother and sister-in-law who are helpful in many areas and provide support in many areas when needed.

I am also thankful for the friends that I have.  I don't have a lot, but there are ones who have stuck through thick and thin with me.  Too numerous to list here.  I have so many people who have helped me through the years.  They may never even know how much they have helped.

I have to list Martin in a separate category.  He is my best friend, and although things are tough, I thank God for him.  He is not saved yet, but I believe God will do a work in his life that can only make those around us say, "Wow."  I will never stop believing that God will save him as long as there is breath in my body.  I am so thankful for his friendship.  I wouldn't be where I am today without him.

And lastly, I am thankful for the fact that I have a fairly comfortable life.  I have everything I need and so many things that I want.  Finances may be tight at times, but I have never had to go without common necessities.

May God's blessings rest on all of us this season!
