Lord, I am so Thankful! (Gratitude Community…1000 gift list cont’d)

The Inspiration for my gratitude journal


Can I ever thank you enough for all that I have , for all you’ve done, all you’ve given me, all that you allow, all that you bless? I don’t think so BUT that doesn’t mean I won’t give it my best shot!! I thank you Lord for it all!! I thank you for what has been and what is to come!! I thank you for you! I thank you despite circumstances and because of circumstances!! I thank you, I thank you, I thank you……………………

(As always Lord, Thank you for letting me be my boys mom!!!)

    Angie ~
    Your boys are beautiful! And your list is wonderful.

    Thank you for stopping by last week and this week. I have always been a faithful reader of all the lists, but these days I’ve been a bit busy and the gratitude community, in particular, has doubled in the past few months so it has been hard to keep up with.

    May the Lord bless you.

I appreciated your comment on my blog…thanks for stopping by. Your list is lovely too…I had to chuckle at the “ready to bake” cookies on your list. 🙂

    Have a blessed day in the Lord!
