having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.
I want my life to overflow with gratitude. I have so much to be grateful for. My mother lives with us. She is 92 and a beautiful lady, both inside and out. Her favourite words were "God is so good!" They would always be said over the small things in life that one would normally not even think about. She is loved by everyone with her radiant smile and caring heart. I am so glad that we get along so well and that includes my husband too.
I am currently reading "Choosing Gratitude" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. The current chapter talks about the little things: books, popcorn, car insurance, blankets, warm clothes (those in the east can especially be grateful for them), sticky notes, fresh fruit. God abundantly supplies our needs.
I am grateful for Sparks People and the encouragement that I am finding here, heating blanket, grandkids (we have 5 in town age 19 months to 7 years - what a joy they are), a wonderful DIL, snow (we have had more than usual), it is neat to watch the big beautiful flakes come down, computers, hand lotion, hot water, exercise class. God gives us so much to be thankful for.
God Bless and have a great day!
