Father, give me a thankful heart everyday, not just today. Remind me of your sweet blessings on a daily basis. Viewing life through your Love makes a heart so grateful. I want to take the time to thank you for everything in my life. You’ve put everyone and everything and every situation there for a reason. It is all part of your perfect, pleasing will. YOU ARE SO WONDERFUL. Thank you for the ultimate gift of salvation. It is the reason I live and breathe. You are my strength and song always. Thank you for the sweet gift of prayer and communication with You. I love You. You are love. Thank you for love. THANK YOU ALWAYS!
"Thankfulness is not some sort of magic formula; it is the language of Love, which enables you to communicate intimately with Me. A thankful mind-set does not entail a denial of reality with its plethora of problems. Instead, it rejoices in Me, your Savior, in the midst of trails and tribulations. I am your refuge and strength, an ever-present and well-proved help in trouble."
Though the cherry trees don’t blossom
and the strawberries don’t ripen,
Though the apples are worm-eaten
and the wheat fields stunted,
Though the sheep pens are sheepless
and the cattle barns empty,
I’m singing joyful praise to God.
I’m turning cartwheels of joy to my Savior God.
Counting on God’s Rule to prevail,
I take heart and gain strength.
I run like a deer.
I feel like I’m king of the mountain!
——Thank you Jesus, that I have a reason to be thankful, always! Your sweet gift of Love and Life brings joy to my heart at all times. THANK YOU——
