Give thanks

Anyone else wonder whatever happened to Thanksgiving? After Halloween, it's all about Christmas...I'm pretty sure I saw Christmas decorations for sale even in the middle of summer. I have to admit that we do already have our Christmas tree up, however I also wanted to take time to celebrate and reflect on the Thanksgiving holiday and what I am so thankful, grateful and blessed with this year. So, here's my list...

30 Things For Which I'm Thankful This Year
  1. Jesus Christ, for His saving grace & gift of eternal life
  2. God's Word, which teaches, admonishes, inspires and encourages me
  3. My husband, who loves me despite all my flaws and for working hard to support our family
  4. Our precious baby girl growing in my belly, who I am blessed and humbled to be her mom
