Thankful

I am thankful for. . .
  • a God who loves me and His Son that died to save me.
  • a mom and dad who love me.
  • that I have a job and can pay my bills.
  • that I have a job that allows me to actually teach.
  • that I have a roof over my head that has running water and electricity.
  • that I am living in a country where I can voice my opinion, have a job, have an education, and not worry about getting harmed physically for doing so.
  • those who are willing to defend my country no matter the cost.
  • my friends and their love.
  • that I've been blessed with a reliable car.
  • that I've been blessed with good, improving health.
  • that the lack of feeling, that I've had for three years (nerve damage), in my right calf is almost completely gone.
  • my hurts, because it means that I have not become so cynical that I've developed a cold heart and stopped caring about others.
  • my ability and capacity to love.
  • the talents and gifts God has given to me.
  • all the protection God granted me when I should of ended up dead, in jail, or addicted to something.
  • my ever faithful kitty cats. Hey, they keep me warm at night.
  • my bloggy friends; without whom, my life would be a little emptier.
  • RT Tube! (ha!)
"How Could I Ask for More"
Cindy Morgan


I'm thankful for many things that I did not mention. Despite all my whining, I'm very grateful for my life and how God has blessed me. I'm also thankful for blessings that I have not yet experienced.

Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him." The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3:22-26 (NIV)


Have a safe, happy, and blessed Thanksgiving!

All the kids made it. Everyone loves Bullwinkle. Cecily got to give Rocki some paper towels for her nest. Anders wasn't too sure about Rocki, but would hold the snake. Well, so did Cecily. Got kind of chilly down here today. Perfect turkey frying weather if the wind would stop. Gotta start the burner shortly, but wanted to stop by and wish you a great Thanksgiving.
