This is my list. This list is not indicative of the order of thankfulness and it is definitely not a complete list!
“O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for me. Your plans for me are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them." Psalm 40:5
God chose to give me life; my dear husband, my parents, my siblings and their families, my grandparents, my family and extended family‘s health.
I have the blessings of Jay’s children, their spouses and the grandkids,
I have been physically able to run and play all my life (maybe a little slower now, but still …);
Thankful for my education, being able to read and learn;
I enjoyed a great childhood; good teachers; parents who cared about every aspect of my life; parents have helped me with homework.
Thankful for every Sunday school teacher, every pastor, every person who ever prayed for me.
My childhood friends, the knowledge of God, and need for him and his forgiveness.
The Bible, being born again at age 8 into God’s kingdom, God’s patience with me, joy of singing, my health.
God‘s mercy to me and surviving breast cancer and other health issues, the opportunity to be the bone marrow donor for my brother in his cancer.
Direction from my dad about working and the work ethic inherited from parents.
My jobs, my marriage, the churches I have attended.
Food: I have never gone hungry and always had clean water to drink,
Shelter, I have always had a place to live, warm and safe.
I have always had clothes to wear.
I’ve enjoyed my pets, books to read, bookmobiles and libraries, transportation.
Thankful for medical insurance, life insurance.
I’ve had God‘s provision in every situation and I have been blessed to be able to give to others.
Thankful for the rescue by God from messes I got myself into … and things He rescued me from that I wasn’t even aware of.
Windows, sunshine, cool water, lakes, His creation — nature, the beauty of it all, grass, trees, different seasons to enjoy,
Vacations and holidays. Sick days, candles, fire, washers and dryers, vacuum cleaners, refrigerators, hot and cold clean running water, carpet, showers, AC in the summer, heat in the winter.
freeways, chocolate, freedom, the strength I have in my mental capacities.
My memory, being able to simply enjoy life, prayer, my friends now and through the years. Travels I have gotten to do in places I’ve seen, my computer, the exhilaration of snow and water skiing.
Going through this very long list of all these things I am thankful for. What a long list and it doesn’t even include everything I’m thankful for. But You, Lord, You are the giver, the One I’m thankful for. You gave me life. That song — it’s Your breath in my lungs, so I pour out my praise! How great You are! I am forever grateful. Remind me each day, Lord, for You have dealt bountifully with me.
