Thanksgiving

Tomorrow afternoon we are headed down to L.A. (lower Arkansas) to spend the holidays with Scott's family. So this will be my last post for a while.
But I would be remiss if I didn't stop and count my blessings.

These are the things I'm most thankful for this year:
My sweet husband that God hand picked for me
My wonderful parents who have love me almost as much as they love God
My sweet in-laws
Having a house to live in - I'm so thankful just to have a roof over my head as I go to bed each night
This cute little ball of fur
Our wonderful church and church staff
My job
All of the wonderful friends that God has blessed me with ........and all the ones who aren't pictured here. This is probably one of the best treasures I have. I am so thankful for all of the very special people that God has allowed me to be friends with. They make my life so rich!
(I'm thankful for all my new blog friends too and letting me read about your life!)

I'm also thankful for my health, for being able to live in America, for having plenty of food to eat and plenty of clothes to wear, and the list could go on forever. What are you most thankful for this year?

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thes 5:18

Thanks for including me in your "thankful" post! I'm VERY thankful for you too! Honestly, you are one of my favorite friends! I'm sad that I didn't get around to doing a post myself. I meant to. But since I'm still getting the hang of this blogging business I might wait until next year. Or I might just do it mid-year to throw everyone off! :)Have fun with the in-laws! Tell them I said "hello!"

P.S. I forgot to say what I'm most thankful for...besides my family, friends, church, etc. the thing I'm most thankful for is the peace in my heart! I'm pretty sure you know what I'm talking about! We both know it's a HUGE blessing!

Thank you for including me in your friends picture! I am so thankful for your friendship too. I commented on your Mom's blog that your family is such a big blessing on my "thankful for" list...I loved when our families did stuff together growing up...I wish we still lived close enough to spend time together like that! I miss y'all! Oh,I'm also thankful for blogs so that I can keep up with friends on a daily basis!:)
