Thankful Thursday...

'Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.' Colossians 4:2

In a world that seems to spiral further off its axis everyday, there is always something to be thankful for.  Always.  More so even if you are a child of God.  Each breath we draw is an opportunity to say, "Thank You" to the One who is the giver of all things, the bearer of life.  Open your eyes, see what He has given you, then open your mouth with thanksgiving.

Continuing to count my One Thousand Gifts...

I love #31, Allison. There's nothing better than hearing men/boys raising their voices in praise to our Savior.
