Being Thankful



I cannot describe in words all of the blessings I have received in this life.
God has blessed me to the point that it is overwhelming to think about it.
But today, I must think about it.

I'm thankful for Christ. I'm thankful that God sent Christ to die and save me from my sins.
I'm thankful that He saw me as His child, and not as the true worthless sinner I am.
I'm thankful that He first loved me, so that I can love him now.

I'm thankful for the Family that He blessed me with. I'm thankful for the immediate and extended family. We're a community that care for each other and will always have each other's backs.
We pray for one another. We laugh with one another. We cry together. We live together. And I can't imagine my life without any of them.

And I always say that I'm thankful for Art and Music. Some of the flavor that God gave us. Art and Music give us the tools to begin to "describe" this world he has given us. We can "describe" feelings in a way that words cannot (well, unless they're lyrics of course).

and I'm thankful for:
-my home
-my clothes

Mostly I'm just thankful for love. God's love, Family's love, Friend's love, any type of love. But my favorite is selfless love. I'm thankful for that the most.
