There is so much to be thankful for. I think of my husband's sermon from last sunday. He mentioned that as Canadians, we are so blessed. We can get so caught up in worry, stress and money problems, meanwhile, most of us have a roof over our heads, transportation and amazing families.
I am so grateful for my amazing friends and family who show me daily their love and support. I'm so thankful for my husband who serves God with all his heart and loves his children and is my best friend. I'm thankful for friends who live near and far. I do not go without food, I never have to sleep on the street and I am never lonely. Number one, I have free access to the Bible and to God. I don't have to worship in secret and fear for my life because I choose to follow Jesus. Yes, I am truly blessed.
This thanksgiving, lets choose to focus on our blessings instead of our burdens. Lets tell others how much we care and love them and lets show them too! Lets remember to show and share God's love to those who do not yet know.
Thank you God for saving me. Thank you that you sent Jesus for my sins, even though I fail you time and time again. Thank you for your forgiveness. Thank you for your peace, healing and love. Help me to boldly share your message of hope. Give me wisdom and patience with my children. Help me to be an encouragement and comfort to those around me who need it. I pray a special unspoken prayer for a dear friend. Thank you God that you care and are listening.
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone. Don't forget to hug your family and friends and thank God for His blessings!
