Thankful Thursday and Thursday Thirteen

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

Thankful Thursdayis hosted by Iris at Grace Alone . I’m listing 13 things for which I am thankful, so that I can participate in Thursday Thirteen also. Bear with me if I’ve said I was thankful for some of these things before, because I’m still thankful for them!

  1. I’m thankful for another day to be alive, that I might be helpful to others and enjoy them.
  2. Not only am I alive, I’m well. I’m surely thankful for that!

  3. I’m thankful for sufficient food and clothing for our family.
  4. I’m thankful that, even in these trying economic times, my husband has sufficient house design work.
  5. I’m thankful that we have the freedom (and responsibility) in this country to elect some of our officials, and to effect change peaceably (within the framework of our constitution).

  6. I’m thankful for love among our family members.

  7. I’m thankful for the faithful preaching of God’s Word, and for a loving church community.
  8. I’m thankful for a dedicated school district, with teachers and administrators doing the best they can, on a limited budget, for the students.

  9. I am thankful for reconciliation with God through the mediation of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
  10. I’m thankful that this short life isn’t ‘all there is.’

  11. I’m thankful for intelligence and a healthy mind.

  12. I’m thankful for an abundance of good books to read.
  13. I’m thankful for a great part-time job, the talented teachers whom I assist, the students with whom I work, and the insurance benefits that I receive for our family.
