Overflowing with Thankfulness

A season of giving thanks seems to get lost in this world today. God doesn't promise everything will always be easy in this world, but He does give us so many promises for this life.

This past December as the eve of the new year was approaching, I made a list of goals for 2015. One of those was to just stop each day and be mindful of my many blessings. It is so easy in the day to day to lose sight of what He does for us. 

As we leave for the farm tomorrow to have Thanksgiving with the family, I just wanted to stop today and note some of those things in my life.

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7 

I have the most wonderful family. 

A husband that loves me and looks to always provide me with the best. 

A daughter who is such a good friend as well as a wonderful daughter. She has a light that glows in a crazy world and an optimistic attitude even when things aren't going well. 

I have the most wonderful son-in-law who loves my daughter. He is so very good to her.... an answered prayer. 

My dear son who is my very heart is doing so much better. He seems to have grown up so much lately. 

When I think back to last Thanksgiving, my mom was sick and just felt so stinking bad along with having to forge new traditions. Today, she is feeling good and ready to move. We close next week on a home. I am so grateful.

My list could go on... a wonderful church and a great group of friends.

I am going to enjoy the rest of the week. 
Going to see the Hunger Games with my daughter.
Headed to the farm tomorrow to prepare for the family.
A day to eat and fellowship.
Heading to the cabin on Friday.
Iron Bowl on Saturday. War Eagle! Hoping for a miracle!
Back home Sunday.
Get the tree up!

Everyone have a blessed week,
Sandy

    1. I will share pictures next week. We should be out doing things instead of napping after we feast.
