Giving thanks!

Thursday, February 11, 2010

It has been a very hectic couple of weeks with moving. I still have boxes to unpack and things to arrange but I was thinking today of all the things I have to be grateful for. I feel so blessed to have my health and be able to exercise and move as well as I can, I am so blessed to have a husband that I love and that loves me and children and grandchildren to share my life with. I am so blessed to live in a country that is prosperous and has freedoms and hope--I have a roof over my head and food in the fridge, clean water if I turn on the tap. I am blessed to have a job and a wonderful church family and prayer group to be part of. I have a car to carry me where I need to go. I really could go on and on and on. . . . Sometimes I don't take the time to really reflect on the many blessings in my life and it is always so humbling when I do. I am praying today for those in Haiti that don't have a home anymore or lost family in the earthquake, I am praying for my pastor friend in Uganda, Samuel Sebula, who is preaching the gospel with limited resources and trying to plant a new church in the slums of the capital and praising the birth of his son, I am praying for those in this country who don't have a warm place to sleep tonight or food to eat, I am praying for those that are lost and need to be found, I am praying for those that are struggling with addictions, for those in the military in harms way, for those that are alone. The needs are great but our God is greater--remember to help where you can--offer a word of encouragement, a smile, a hug, a prayer.

    We have so much to be thankful for that we just take for granted.
