I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I have almost finished my 30 Days of Thanks, however, it's all on FaceBook. But... I'm going to add all of my days in this one post... so I will remember!

Day 30:  Wow, November is over. But I will continue to be thankful for everything God has blessed me with. My husband, my children, my family, my church, my friends, my home and sooooo much more! I am blessed. Thank You Lord.

Day 29:  Thankful for the country I live in.

Day 28:  I'm thankful for the struggles.  Because when they are over, life is sweeter.

Day 27:  Thankful for all of God's blessings, both big and small!

Day 26:  I am thankful for the smiles of my children.  They brighten my day!

Day 25:  I am thankful for the seasons.  Because just as the seasons of earth are beautiful and ever changing... so are the seasons of my life. 

Day 24:  I am thankful for my husbands job.

Day 23:  I am thankful for warm blankets, good coffee, and quiet moments.

Day 22:  I am thankful today for every good and precious gift from above. Every blessing that God has given me....

Day 21:   Thankful for the unconditional love if a Godly man. For all he does for me and our family, I am so blessed.

Day 20:   Thankful for holiday seasons, and time to spend with my family. Some I only see once a year... I love my family, blessed with some amazing great aunts and uncles and cousins. Such an awesome heritage. Miss my grandmother though!

Day 19:   I am thankful that His Word stands and is always true. I'm thankful for songs and music that touches my heart and gives me strength when I feel it's almost gone. I'm thankful for words that stick with me day after day that assures me His Word is true, what He has spoken over me and my family, regardless of what I see right now... is true and I can hold onto that until I do see it become reality. I am thankful for HOPE.

Day 18:   I'm thankful for another day to be alive. To love my children. To love my husband. To love and worship my Father!

Day 17:   I am thankful that although people change, God is faithful and unchanging. I am thankful that He cares for me, and see's me as His child. I am thankful that He loves me so much.

Day 16:  I am thankful for  peace in times of storms.

Day 15:  Today I am thankful that if I seek more of God, He is faithful to provide. I'm thankful that today, I am spiritually nothing as I was long ago. I am thankful that day by day, He changes me. I'm also thankful that sometimes what He uses to change me and grow me "hurts"... (I'm also thankful for the easy changes too! )

Day 14:   Thankful for the sweet presence of the Holy Spirit. Thankful for times of sweet worship. Thankful for tears that flow and provide healing. Thankful that God hears my prayers - and answers them in HIS time. Thankful that there is always hope

Day 13:   Thankful that God's grace is abundant!

Day 12:   I am thankful for those who serve in the mission fields sharing the gospel! So many lives changed forever because missionaries and their families answer THE CALL.

Day 11:   I am thankful for my freedom, for those who have given their lives for it, and for those who continue to serve. I am thankful for our military and their families and how much they sacrifice daily. I am thankful that I am free....

Day 10:   Thankful for unexpected blessings!

Day 9:   Thankful for prayer, and that I can go straight to the Father! And that I have friends who willingly intercede on my behalf as well. :)

Day 8:   I am so thankful for the parents God chose to give me to. They love me and have given me a strong sense of morals for which I am blessed. They have also been amazing grandparents to my kids!

Day 7:   I am so thankful that God is a wonderful Father that tells His children NO! And then gives us so much more than our small plan would have ever produced!

Day 6:   I am thankful to be free. Free to worship. Free to gather with my family and friends to pray and sing and glorify my Savior.

30 Days of Thanksgiving - Day 4 and Day 5

Day 4 - I am thankful for all seven of my kids and the joy they bring to my life. I am also thankful (no really.....) for the lessons they have taught me to rely on God when all things were not so joyful. My children are a blessing.
Day 5 - I am thankful for the simple things in life - coffee, warm blankets, cuddle time with kids, etc. And that I am blessed to have those things, when there are so many others who do not.

30 Days of Thanksgiving - Day 2

I am so thankful for God's creativity.

I am amazed that He saw the need to create seasons.  I love Fall.  I love the colors of the leaves.  I love the crisp air.  Wow... I just love, love, love Fall!

God is so amazing, that every detail of creation would be so perfectly thought of for His people! 

What are you thankful for today?
