Grace and Thanks

This time of year always puts you in a reflective mood for the things you are thankful for. Of course I am very grateful and thankful for my family. My children are my world. I love my parents dearly. I am thankful for the new found relationship they have with each other. I am thankful for my sisters. I am thankful for my in laws that are so graciously taking care of my babies right now so that I can have a break. I am so grateful for all my friendships. I am so very grateful for my job. The list could go on and on for the numerous blessings I have in my life. AND I'm so thankful for being able to count all the wonderful blessings.

But I'm talking about something deeper here. My heart is so full of gratitude for the grace that God has given me to sustain this past year. My heart could explode for all the ways I can count that God has literally made me a different person and a happy one at that. I am truly, truly so thankful for hard times that I made it through, because it has been worth it to be at this point now. I know I am not immune to face other challenges, but I'm so thankful that God is with me every single time...EVERY SINGLE TIME.

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope that you may too be able to truly count your blessings. It seems as though 2007 has been a tough year for a lot of people that I know. I hope that you are able to find some peace and see how God is working in your life. He is faithful...don't ever stop believing that!
