Thankful Thursday

"It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
and to sing praises to Thy name, O Most High." Psalm 92:1

Last Thursday was the first of a new string of posts focused on thankful living. It is my desire to concentrate on being grateful rather than the contrary. Sometimes this is simple and other times I struggle with finding the glimmer of good. I understand that positive thinking is powerful - It opens up a space to see God in every detail of my life. Living with gratitude is my desire and my choice.
So I say to myself "self, do it. be thankful".
Today I am THANKFUL for:
  • my mom's discharge from the hospital - YEAH!
  • healthy children
  • an insurance claim from 12-5-05 that was finally processed correctly
  • the changing of seasons
  • that I don't need to know what is going to happen next because God does
  • the power of choice, and the will to exercise it

I so enjoyed hearing about what you are grateful for. Keep em coming!
