Thank God


Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
Psalm 75:1

"From David learn to give thanks for everything. - Every furrow in the book of Psalms is sown with seeds of thanksgiving." [Jeremy Taylor]

This post was written by my mother. After my dad's death, she has started writing some, too. This helps me in my soul searching. To help me discover more of who God wants me to be. Here is her post....

I woke up this morning. Looking around my room and thanked God for watching over me last night. And woke up to a bright sunny day.

Thank God for giving me another day to be with my family.

Thank God to be able to reach out to someone in need.

Thank God that at my age I'm able to cook breakfast for my family and clean my house. For most people my age are in the hospital or nursing home.

Thank God for life.

Thank God for my granddaughter of 7 who says the sweet words,"I love you, Mamaw."

Thank God for my grandson of 2 when he hugs my neck.

They light up my life with a child like love and happiness.

Thank God for 2 sons that help me.

Thank God for a daughter in law that lets my grandchildren spend the night.

Thank God for butterflies. My husband loved to watch his granddaughter catch butterflies before he passed. Thank God I can still feel his presence.

Thank God that He waits for me with Jesus.

Writing is the best way to go as I found out for myself. Clearing your mind and discovering what we were put on this earth for, congratulations.

Your mothers writing reflects a beautiful soul. I hope she gets as much upliftment from her writing as those of us she has shared her words with.

Gratitude is a very powerful feeling. It reminds us how connected we are to forces we do not see. The truth is always felt.
