The Thankfulness Goes On

I'm behind, but I'm not giving up!  I'm thankful for:

1) A God who loved me, despite who I am, enough to give Everything for me. "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." - Romans 5:8 

2) My husband who makes me laugh and works so hard for our family.  He is such a wonderful husband and father! 

3) My kids.  I truly believe that my purpose in life is to be their mother.  They amaze me everyday!
4) My mom who gives everything for those she loves.  What would I do without her to help me?  
She's an amazing example of a servant's heart and putting love into action. 
5) My dad who first taught me about Jesus.   I will forever be grateful for the time he spent with me as a little girl and all the things he taught me.
6) My baby sister.  She has always been one of my favorite people and has taught me so much about having an abundant life.
7) My in-laws.  They raised an amazing man whom I now call my husband.  I am so thankful for them!
8) My church family who love me, encourage me, and serve beside me.  They truly are family.
9) My pastor.  He is not afraid to preach the Gospel.  I have learned so much from him and he continually challenges me in my walk with Christ.

10) My friends.  We laugh together, cry together, and encourage one another.  The Lord has given me amazing friends that I don't know what I would do without!
11)  The men and women who serve our county.  They sacrifice more than we will ever know for the sake of freedom.
12) My home.  I am working hard to really appreciate my home and to put that into action by caring for it the way I should.  God has blessed us greatly with a roof over our heads and love inside the walls.

13) The opportunity to homeschool my children.  I get to combine my love for my kids with the joy of teaching to produce a great result!

14) Our jobs.  The blessing of a good job is more evident now than ever before in my life.  May we serve the Lord through our work each day.
15) The beauty of the world around us.  God didn't have to make the world beautiful or give us the ability to appreciate that beauty.  But, He loved us enough to instill that in us for our joy and His glory.
16) Laughter and those who provide it.  It is wonderful when joy just bursts forth in the form of laughter.
