Thanksgiving Is Coming!

Thanksgiving is next Thursday, and I wanted to share a few things I am thankful for!

I am thankful for God. He has blessed me in so many ways. He's given me a wonderful family and great friends. God is always there for me when I need anything. He's provided His Word for us to read, and it has truly blessed me. He sent His one and only Son to die on the Cross to take away our sins. Oh, how thankful I am for God! :)

I am thankful for my family. They are always there for me when I need support. My amazing parents have taught me how to be a Christ-follower and pleasing to Him. My two wonderful siblings, Tyler and Jessa, have shared many fun times with me. They are all so special and dear to me! Oh, how thankful I am for my family! :)

I am thankful for my friends. They are there for me when I need a little "lift-me-up". So many good friendships have formed in my life. I am thankful for each one. When you're with friends, there is so much laughter and fun! God has blessed me with some real great friends. God places certain people in your life for a reason! Oh, how thankful I am for my friends! :)

The list could go on forever... I am thankful for my home, for food and water, for animals, and for transportation. All the things I am thankful for lead back to God. He's the one who has given me the many things I'm thankful for.
I would love to hear what you are thankful for. Leave a comment in this post and share with me what you are thankful for.
Also, I am going to post a verse from the Bible each day until Thanksgiving. May those verses bless you... Today's verse is:

"Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name."
~Psalm 100:4

All the verses I will share with you this week are from the Book of Psalm. What a wonderful book in the Bible to read. Praise be to God!

Blessings To You And Your Family,

What a great post! It is good to remind each other to be thankful, and to remember the One who has given us everything! As for me, there are too many things to write that I am grateful for, but here is a few!

~ A loving Savior to lean on and trust

~ My Family, and the love and encouragement they give to me

~ A country where I can worship the Lord freely

~ God's Word

And the list can go on......

"... give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." ~ 1 Thes. 5:18
