thanksgiving blessings

Pinned Image

i have so much to be thankful for.
my heart overflows with gratitude
for the blessings
that the Lord has bountifully bestowed upon our family.
i could seriously never express them all, 
but here are a very small few.
{small in number, not in blessing}

God is soooo good, isn't HE?

i thank Him for dying on the cross for a lowly, wicked sinner like me, 
giving me the Hope of spending eternity with Him.
my {healthy} Hope.
i thank Him for His Word, our Great Treasure, that clearly shows us the path we ought to be on, gives us answers to every question, problem, or burden that we may be dealing with, 
and comforts us in our deepest times of need.
i thank Him for my family, and how unique and special each and every person is to me.
i thank Him for an amazing church and church family.
i thank Him for our pastor, a true shepherd, 
who faithfully preaches the Word of God and tends so diligently to his flock.
i thank Him for a loving husband, who teaches me{in actions} about unconditional love 
and having uncompromising vigor for the Lord.
i thank Him for the privilege of having children, that teach and bless me continually with their child like faith{and crazy antics}. 
i thank Him for my home, my haven, a place of solace, warmth and comfort.
i thank Him for full tummies, and never having to wonder where my next meal will come from.
i thank Him for warmth.
a warm home, a warm heart.
i thank Him for my friends, all of you, who have been such a blessing to me.
i'm really, really thankful that His mercies are new each day, 
because i mess up.
a lot.

the list could go on and on and on.....

i pray that your thanksgiving is filled with love and blessings from the One who 
is the Giver of all good things.
tomorrow we're headed to not one, but two thanksgiving dinners.
i can't wait to load up my squash bake{heavenly}, grab my crew, 
and count. my. blessings.
much love to you all!

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Psalm 100
