Today...


  • I am thankful for life. I love life and I'm so thankful that God has given me breath and health thus far.
  • I am thankful for a comfortable house to live in.
  • I am thankful for a bed to sleep in.
  • I am thankful for food to eat.
  • I am thankful for my family.
  • I am thankful for my friends.
  • I am thankful for running water and for hot water heaters.
  • I am thankful for all the circumstances of life that God has brought me through. They have taught me many things.
  • I am thankful for the privilege of knowing God and knowing that He loves me and that He is a loving God. I'm so thankful that I don't have to live in fear and darkness like so many who don't know God.
  • I am thankful for religious freedom, to believe what my conscious tells me is right.
  • I am thankful for so many things but especially and most grateful for God's gift in giving His only begotten Son to die that I might live and that Jesus was willing to sacrifice His all for me.
The song "My Tribute" expresses my feelings so well - especially the first verse.

How can I say thanks for the things
You have done for me?
Things so undeserved yet you gave
To prove your love for me
The voices of a million angels
Could not express my gratitude
All that I am, and ever hope to be
I owe it all to thee


To god be the glory, to god be the glory
To god be the glory for the things he has done
With his blood he has saved me
With his power he has raised me
To god be the glory for the things he has done
Just let me live my life and
Let it be pleasing lord to thee
And if I gain any praise, let it go to calvary
With his blood he has saved me
With his power he has raised me
To god be the glory for the things he has done

~ Andrae Crouch

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  1. Thanks Lyss, such a sweet post. Reminded me what I have to be thankful for. What I'm not thankful for though, is that we don't have Thanksgiving in Australia.

  3. Thanks Stella for inviting me to this blog. It is wonderful to read your 'thankful' list. You've inspired me to do one for myself and to ask KL to do one too.
