I am grateful I have a hubby who has paid off his student burden, paid off the house and is still working .... and we have a grandson on the way, Lord be Praised!

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal
2 COR 16-18

Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse

IM, It's not easy in the mornings, I prefer mine from the other side..to stay up all night to see a sunrise so that I'm awake enough to enjoy it! Perhaps gratitude for electricity, or affording batteries for that stupid alarm clock and that you are able to do so. Perhaps gratitude that you have a job. If some of it is insufferable there, please let us know. And you have a way to get there? And that job provides how much for yourself and others that you love? And provides funds that you help support the church and charities? Ability to pay taxes, for the roads, for assistance to others, for the schools? I know of a lot of people that should love your alarm clock! :) So much to be grateful for, and thank God for you...

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Counting my blessings instead of sheep?
Isn't that a lyric from a wonderful 50's song.
I think it is the name of the song too.

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal

Yes, all of us have a lot to be thankful for every day! Those blessings really add up too, despite any hardships that we have!

Barbara .....that's what my friends call me! Never cared for the name Barb.

Make it a blessed and healthy day! IT IS YOUR CHOICE!

Remember how special you are and how you are soooooo worth it to be healthy and fit!!

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the assurance of things unseen. Hebrews 11:1

Thanks so much for reminding us to thank God first thing every day for so many blessings that we receive from His loving hands!

I do try to live with a grateful heart - even for the things we tend to take for granted - for example, when I shower I thank him for the hot water - so many people in the world don't even have water, never mind hot water! And living in such a violent country (Honduras), I thank Him every day for His protection.

Thank you, ANDROMEDA, a great reminder. I try to remember each day to thank God for what I have. I often tell him I am grateful so so many blessings!! Sometimes I go on and on and on. I even thank Him for my comfortable, warm bed, in addition to good health, my sons, my healthy grandsons, my job, etc. Great thread! Thanks, again. emoticon

An excellent reminder. I hope it was yesterday that I thanked God for my family, friends, job, health, and abstinence from my overeating problem!

THank you for reminding us of the blessings we receive without merit ... just because He loves us.

with what we thanked God for yesterday?


I saw that quote on my friend's facebook page and it made me think. What di I thank God for? For a long time now, the first thing I do when I wake up is to thank God for a new day, grateful to be alive. But is that all I would get? Just a new day? By myself? And what if I became ill? So this morning when I woke up, I thanked God for a new day but I also thanked Him for my family--without them, I don't know where I would be. And I thanked Him for my health. As I am writing this, I am thinking of other things I could be thankful for. It's a good reminder to count our blessings
