I Am Thankful

Considering that Thanksgiving is like a week away, I thought I might continue on the theme of Thankfulness.

First of all, I thank my God that He saved me from death. I know that some day this fleshly body will die, but I am so thankful that I am no longer walking in the death that is separation from Him. He gave me new life and made it so that I never have to believe the lies that tell me that I am a prisoner to my past. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Cor. 5:17 I am a new creature!

Next, I want to thank God for my husband. I have never loved or been loved the way that Vaughn loves me. And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. Genesis 2:18 I am so blessed to be the wife of such a wonderful, Godly man. I couldn’t ask for anything more. And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. Mark 10:8 & 9

And then, for my wonderful children. My Austin and my Bethanie. Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. Psalm 127:3 God blessed me with two beautiful children, whom I am so very proud of every single day. They fill my world with laughter. Their hunger to learn is inspiring. The innocence with which they see the world makes me remember that Jesus said Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3 I pray that we learn how to see the world, how to believe the way children do.

For my friends, my real friends. You know who you are. The ones who are there through thick and thin, through good choices and bad ones, no matter what. The stories we could tell, and often do. I thank God for you. I thank you for your heart to love me through the hard times. I thank you for being there to comfort me, to rejoice with me, and, yes, even to tell me when I’m being stupid. Thank you for remembering my birthday and the kids’ birthdays and for celebrating the most important days of my life, right there by my side.

I love you all so very much! My friends, my family, everyone who has had a part in my life and made me who I am. If I can pray for you, please let me know.
