It's Thankful Thursday Again!



It's Thankful Thursday again and so I will tell you some things I am thankful for this morning.

I am thankful for this box of tissues...to wipe my runny eyes and runny nose...Allergies! Yikes!

I am thankful for the warmth of this wheat heat around my neck...it helps with my headache.

I am thankful for the extra creamy whipped cream I put in my coffee this morning
...it helps to comfort me since I feel lousy.

I am thankful that I don't have to do anything this morning ...but feel sorry for myself!

I am thankful for a husband who loves me...even when I complain!

And I am thankful for my wonderful Lord who remembers that I am but dust...He who knows my every weakness...yet he loves me and forgives me! His mercies are new every morning!

I know this sounds like I am complaining instead of truly being thankful...but I don't mean to be disrespectful. We are supposed to find things to be thankful for in the midst of our troubles aren't we? (:>)

I am blessed beyond belief...I have so many blessings in my life. And for each of them I am truly thankful.

What are you thankful for today?

Linda, I agree with you. I think God knows our aches, pains, frustrations, etc. No point in denying them to Him. But if we can still thank Him in the midst of those cirumstances or issues that bother us, we will be blessed in so many ways. Now that doesn't mean we thank Him for those circumstances or issues, but we thank Him because He is with us always and when it gets to hard, we can lean on Him. That is an amazing blessing in itself!

Hugs,

Sue

Aw - hope you feel better soon. And you are so right - we need to rejoice in ALL things, even when we're not feeling well. Sometimes it's just the little things that make us thankful, but the little things are important too. Get better soon!

Today I'm thankful for another day to breathe and live. I remember something my Dad used to tell us. Be thankful for today cause your just one day closer to meeting Jesus.

Have a great Thursday !!

Woo-hoo! I did it! All by myself I figured out how to do it! So you can read my Thankful Thursday blog at http://subeesbuzz.blogspot.com/2010/10/today-i-am-going-to-try-something-new.html. It's a bit rough but I hope to get better and more creative as it goes along. I also figured out how to add your button to my page. I'm so proud of me! ;-)

I'm thankful that you're thankful even while you are not well. Wishing you complete health soon! I've got a pit pac (cherry pits) to use around as a heat pad - I think I'll haul it out and use it on my back. Not so keen on the wheat filled ones, as someone overheated it in the microwave and caused some damage! Please be careful!!

Hope you are feeling better.

Yes, We have lots to be thankful but sometimes when we do hurt we do have a bit more trouble being grateful and thankful. I love it that God knows all about us and even if we don't voice it out loud he knows we are thankful for what he is doing for us.

Hugs to you for a great week end.
