Many Reasons to be Thankful...

Good Morning! 

Today I am thankful for the rain.  Now I am not a huge fan of extended periods of rain and cloudy skies.  I love my matter the season.  However, in the past year we have been in such a drought that the rain is so welcome in the midwest.  While I wish the rain was a 'warm' rain, it is still a gift from God and I will do my best not to complain about the dreary days. 

Today I am thankful for a warm jacket to wear on a dreary, damp day.  I know there are some that may not have a jacket to keep them warm and dry.  I am so thankful for the blessing of my jacket. 

Today I am thankful for the ache in my head...because it means that I can feel.  While I pray that God will take the pain away, I am thankful that He has blessed me with the ability to feel pain.

Today I am thankful for my church body.  I am thankful that God has placed me in the body of believers that He has.  What a wonderful group of people I am blessed to worship with.

These are just a very few of the things for which I am thankful today.  What are YOU thankful for?

Many blessings,


  1. I just heard this quote today and it immediately came to mind when I read your post:

    You have granted me many blessings; let me also accept what is hard from your hand. Prayers from Prison (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)

    This goes beyond the scope of these rainy, dreary days but oh-so-true! I love your positive attitude, it's encouraging!

  2. Wonderful list! Today I am thankful for my glasses that help make things more clear on days like today.
