Thankful Thursday

As down as I have been lately, I am forcing myself to realize the good things in my life.  I NEED to do this.  If not for my sake then for your reading sake.  I know the last few posts have been downers, and for that I'm sorry.  I am in search of lighthearted reading material for you all.  I promise!

So, here's what I'm thankful for...
  1. Waking up this morning (at least I hope I wake up today (Thursday)--I'm writing this from the future--well...Monday that is, so I guess as you're reading this it would be your past????)--Even the simplest of things can be taken for granted.
  2. Times when I really feel that my prayers are reaching Heaven--Even if my prayers are not answered, at least I'm reassured that they are being heard!
  3. Songs with lyrics that seem to resonate with my heart--"No tears in Heaven, no sorrows given, all will be glory in that land; There'll be no sadness, all will be gladness, when we shall join that happy band.  No tears, no tears, no tears up there, sorrow and pain will all have flown; No tears, no tears, no tears up there, no tears in Heaven will be known."
  4. Scriptures that come from my Father to comfort me in my time of need.  "Jeremiah 31:13--I will turn their  mourning into gladness. I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow." --There are so many more, but for lack of time, I chose this one to share.

I am so incredibly blessed, and sometimes I fail to acknowledge my blessings.  Despite situations in life, as long as I have breath in my lungs, I am blessed. 


  1. Love this post! I should do this on my blog. It is a great reminder of how thankful we should be

  2. I love Jeremiah :0) What a great scripture and inspiring post.
