in all things GIVE THANKS!

 << a little doodle I worked on this week >>

what i am most thankful for...
(big things & little things)

Jesus. My Savior. All that I have to be thankful for is from Him! All glory is His!
His love, grace & forgiveness are the best gifts I have!

God's Word. I have been so blessed by all that I have learned from the Bible, especially in the last
few years! Just last night, I finished an 11-week Bible study about the Patriarchs, with ladies at my church. 
It opened my eyes to so many things that I didn't know. I love that there is always more to learn from God!
Studying the Bible is journey that never ends!! I am so thankful for opportunities to study the Bible with 
people in my church, because I learn so much more that way! AND I am so thankful that I have the freedom
to study God's Word!

My family. Because they are truly my most favorite people ever!!
And my doggie... she is a part of my family too, of course!

My house. Honestly, I feel the most joy when I am at home! I am thankful for a place that I
 can feel happy, cozy & safe. I have all that I need + so much more...

My health. I never want to take my health for granted. In the last few weeks, I have gotten my 
exercise routine going pretty strong again & even though I am sore, I am thankful that I am healthy!

My hobbies. Photography, knitting, blogging, baking, reading. There are so many wonderful things 
that fill my spare time with so much joy! I have always had the means to support my hobbies & I am so 
thankful for that!

and a little more...
Hot chamomile tea & a warm bed. A brand new journal to write in. 
Christmas music & movies. Flowers. Clean water to drink.
Nice clothes to wear. Quiet time. Chocolate. Laughter. 
Sunshine. Memories. Seeing, Smelling, Feeling.

The list could go on & on... I guess the whole point is that, I have SO MUCH to be thankful for!!
We all do. Yet we often forget to be thankful on a daily basis.

I saw this quote & it really got me thinking...
"What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?"

EVERYDAY, I need to be more thankful to God for the many ways He has blessed me!
And even when life is not perfect, I need to trust God 
& still be thankful!!
