Thankful Thursday...

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

I'm giving my thanks a little late this week, but I'm thankful He doesn't judge me for that!  Gratitude can be uttered any time and I know He will receive it as the praise it's intended to be.  When you really start to look for the blessings in your life, He will deliver!  I have so much to be thankful for and I don't want to take anything He has given, good or bad, for granted. 

Continuing to count one thousand gifts...

#60  for the edit post button, so I can look back and see what number I am on
#61  my birthday (26 years old tomorrow-started going backwards @ 30)
#62  the hubby's birthday Saturday
#63  the fact the hubby will always be older than me
#64  lime green wrapping paper (that I discovered too late you could see through)
#65  big brothers
#66  college football
#67  the hubby's excitement over said football
#68  prayers of a community for one of their own
#69  coffee and real half & half
#70  community of women willing to serve one another

Are you thankful today?

God doesn't care what day of the week it is, He just wants us to be thankful. ;) Happy birthday, Allison! I say you should keep counting forward - you just get better with age. Great list!
