Thankful Thursday

Luke 6:21
Blessed are you who are now hungry,
for now you are satisfied.
When you forgive your enemy
When you feed the hungry
When you defend the weak
You believe in the resurrection.
When you have the courage to marry
When you welcome the newly born child
When yo build your home
You believe in the resurrection.
When you wake at peace in the morning
When you sing to the rising sun
When you go to work with joy
You believe in the resurrection.
Carlo Carretto
Today I'm thankful for:
1. My family. Without them I'd be empty. My heart is full of love and joy.
2. For our health, whether it be good or bad. We are among the living and I see that as a blessing. Twice in one week we have went to a funeral. Two co workers have lost their wives this week to cancer. May the Lord bless these families with loving memories and bring them peace.
3. For our home. So many do not have one or are being forced to give up their home. I pray for the homeless, especially in cold weather.
4. For orphanages & foster homes all over the world. And the caregivers who take care of the unwanted children.
5. And for the city park. A place for people can relax and kids can play freely.
