Thankful Thursday~For Another Day

Today I am thankful. I have a thankful heart. I am very thankful for my husband, my children, our health, our home, food, the air I breathe (this fresh mountain are is so invigorating) clean water to drink, warmth from the cold and coolness from the heat, homeschooling and for living in America where we can freely serve our Father. Where we still have freedoms. I pray for those freedoms. I never take them for granted. I'm thankful for my life. My Father is so good to me. I'm thankful for Him and to Him.

I'm thankful for Luke and his heart for Christ. He is such a brave little boy. I am thankful that God is answering prayers and that both his brother and sister are perfect matches for bone marrow! I am thankful to those of you who are praying for him. I am thankful for this blogoshere. There are updates about dearest Luke on his family journal and the blog that is keeping prayers for him. Please go and read about him, put a face to his name and intercess for him today. If you would like to pray online for him but haven't yet go here 500 Prayers for Luke
. Once there, there is a link at the top left of the page that will take you to his online journal. Thanks to all of you for your prayers and support!

Happy Thankful Thursday!

1 Chronicles 16:34 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Col 3:15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Psalms 30:12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

Jenileigh - thank you so much for an update on Luke. I so agree with you on prayer - they are so powerful. I am so thankful that Jesus made it possible for us to approach the throne of grace through His blood.

You are right, we should not take our daily blessings for granted -- especially freedom.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week.

Be blessed today and always.
