"A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue,
but the parent of all other virtues."
Thanks To God!Thanks, O God, for boundless mercy from Thy gracious throne above;
thanks for ev'ry need provided from the fullness of Thy love!
Thanks for daily toil and labor and for rest when shadows fall;
thanks for love of friend and neighbor and Thy goodness unto all!
Thanks for thorns as well as roses, thanks for weakness and for health;
thanks for clouds as well as sunshine, thanks for poverty and wealth!
Thanks for pain as well as pleasure - all Thou sendest day by day;
and Thy Word, our dearest treasure, shedding light upon our way.
Thanks, O God, for home and fireside, here we share our daily bread;
thanks for hours of sweet communion when by Thee our souls are fed!
Thanks for grace in time of sorrow and for joy and peace in Thee;
thanks for hope today, tomorrow, and for all eternity!

The Lord has richly blessed my life and I have so much to be thankful for.
Salvation through the shed blood of Jesus Christ,
God's written Word - the Bible,
the love of family and friends,
hugs and kisses from my sweet little boy,
a precious and wonderful marriage to the sweetest man on earth,
air to breath and sunshine to warm my face,
a cozy home and food on the table,
a piano to play songs of worship to my Heavenly Father,
eyes to see God's beautiful creation and ears to hear the singing of birds.
The list could go on and on so I will stop there :)
It's only a few days after Thanksgiving
and really, every day we ought to be thankful.
What are you thankful for?
