A Season of Thanksgiving 2013

You are my God, and I will give you thanks; you are my God, and I will exalt you.
Psalm 118:28

Abundant Harvest

Abundant Harvest

Thanksgiving is the perfect excuse to make a list of things for which I am thankful. Studies have proven thankful people are happier and healthier people. Who doesn’t want either of those in abundance?

The top of the list: I’m thankful for my Creator and His patience with His creation.

I’m thankful for family. A husband and son who inspire me when I’m writing the mysterious and sometimes maddening male point of view.
Eighty-eight year old parents who still give the best hugs. Sisters and a brother that bring laughter into my life. All the extended family,  in-laws and out-laws and even the old dog that completes my family.

I’m thankful for my church family and good friends. For all of you – the folks reading my blog and reading my book, waiting patiently for the next one and holding me and my writing up in prayer. How blessed I am to have all of you in my life.

This list could go on and on. I’m grateful for this past year. For the struggles and victories and the lessons learned. God is good. His love and mercy rain down every day. I’m thankful for the year ahead knowing that what God has ordained will come to pass. And He will walk with me, never leaving me or forsaking me.

The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
Psalm 28:7

Mums and PumpkinsMay your Thanksgiving be a day filled with blessings and love.

    • Hi MartiC~
      Thank you so much for reading my post and commenting. I apologize for responding so late. The past week and a half has been difficult with losing both a job and the old dog I mentioned in my post. I’m behind on emails and such. Even so, God is good and I still am so thankful to have had the job – I learned so much in that position – and for the love of that 14 year old Belgian Malinois. Unconditional love in spades! Onward we go, praising God for what was, what is and what will come with each new day.
      Have a blessed Christmas, MartiC.
      Anita
