Living with a grateful heart allows you to see God’s many blessings He has so richly given to us and it provides a way for more joy and peace to come into our lives. When I was asked to write a post about “Gratefulness”, I began to think about something that I could share with you that I was grateful for, but not one thing stood out above others. Because there is not just one thing I’m grateful for, but many things.
I’m grateful for God’s grace.
I’m grateful for my husband who loves me unconditionally.
I’m grateful for my three beautiful children.
I’m grateful for friends who encourage me.
I’m grateful for God’s forgiveness.
I’m grateful for the first sip of coffee in the morning.
I’m grateful for hearing laughter in my house.
I’m grateful for learning from my mistakes.
I’m grateful for my parents.
I’m grateful that my sister is my best friend.
I’m grateful for each good-night kiss.
I’m grateful that The Lord has provided my husband with a wonderful job so that I am able to serve my family first as a stay at home mommy.
I’m grateful for exactly what I have. Because without God, I would have nothing…John 3:27 tells us,
“No one can receive anything unless God gives it from heaven.”
These are just simple things, that sometimes get overlooked in the busy-ness of my day, and I’m grateful that this post has given me the opportunity to sit and reflect on the many things that God has blessed me with, and for that I am grateful!
