25 Thanks

  1. I am thankful for Jesus and His sacrifice.
  2. I am thankful for the grace, love and mercy of God.
  3. I am thankful for the Bible that was given to us.
  4. I am thankful for my husband who loves me, hugs me, and puts up with me EVERY day!
  5. I am thankful that we were blessed with such a healthy, beautiful, wonderful daughter.
  6. I am thankful for all of our family and the love they give.
  7. I am thankful that I have such a smart, loving, fun, thoughtful mother.
  8. I am thankful for days off of work, just to celebrate thanks.
  9. I am thankful for my friends.
  10. I am thankful for my Christian family. Without them, we would be lonely.
  11. I am thankful for other Christian parents raising their children to love and obey the Lord. I pray that your children and mine will find each other and unite to become strong for the next generation.
  12. I am thankful my grandparents are cooking tomorrow.
  13. I am thankful for the home that we live in. I could pick it apart all day long but I really love it. This place really is our home and it really is where our heart is.
  14. I am thankful for the men and women in the military who are missing their family so that I have the freedom to be with mine.
  15. I am thankful for the avenue of prayer we have been given. Can you imagine how lost and lonely we would be without it.
  16. I am thankful for our careers.
  17. I am thankful to God for giving us the responsibility to handle some of His money. It is scary sometimes to decide what to spend it on and where it needs to go but what an honor it is that he has trusted us with some of it.
  18. I am thankful for time. I complain about it sometimes, having too little of it, but without time I would not have the opportunity to tell others about Christ, take pictures of Hannah, hug and kiss my family, talk to someone and really get to know them, or worship our Lord.
  19. I am thankful for the singing act of worship. It uplifts me.
  20. I am thankful for the sweet smell of my Grandmom and Grandpop. I savor their scent. It brings back the most wonderful memories.
  21. I am thankful for the bond of marriage. It is a feeling and love that I never want to go away. What an awesome thing to become one with your mate for forever.
  22. I am thankful for those who told me about blogging. I have used it as a memory board of our life that I think is beautiful.
  23. I am thankful for my camera and the life and memories that I can capture with it.
  24. I am thankful for the moment before I go to sleep every night when I get to feel the warmth of my husband beside me. I am lost without it.
  25. I am thankful for the word "thanks" so that I can express my gratitude to others.
