Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful for so many things I hate to start trying to list them for fear that I might leave something out. You are just going to have to trust me--I do have a grateful heart. I hope I express that all year long, not only at this time of year. You, my readers, can hold me accountable. If I ever seem to be ungrateful, I expect you to let me know. You have my permission to leave negative comments.

Sometimes I am so overwhelmed by God's goodness and blessings heaped upon me, all I can do is simply say, "Thank You God...for everything."

My prayer is that each of my readers will be just as overwhelmed as I. As we rush about the next few days, and the next few months, let us all remember where every rich blessing, even every breath we take, comes from. And let us all say, "Thank You God...for everything!"

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

So well said. We are so blessed!

You cracked me up with your comment on my blog. I have been so blessed, I want to share it with others and my blog friends are part of the blessing. Someone is going to win either way, so I'm putting your name in anyway, of my own accord! :) Happy Thanksgiving, my friend!

I am so blessed. Just think I almost didn't sign on today to see if you had left a new message. I am so glad that I did. Just like you I am afraid if I tried to list all my blessings....I would forget something.....Reminds of that song that we used to sing in Church all the time. " Count your blessings..name them one, by one. Count your Blessings" I think if we spent more time counting our Blessings we would all be much happier people.

God is so great! We had a wonderful worship service on Sunday celebrating 135 years of ministry at our little church. Tomorrow night I will be participating in a community Thanksgiving service here in Westerly.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

Hi Lavonda! In making lists, we're bound to leave something or someone out anyhow. A great big ol' Texan-sized Thank You is a great way to express gratitude! God bless you!
