Thankful Thursday

The Holy Alphabet

Although things are not perfect
Because of trial or pain
Continue in thanksgiving
Do not begin to blame
Even when the times are hard
Fierce winds are bound to blow
God is forever able
Hold on to what you know
Imagine life without His love
Joy would cease to be
Keep thanking Him for all the things
Love imparts to thee
Move out of "Camp Complaining"
No weapon that is known
On earth can yield the power
Praise can do alone
Quit looking at the future
Redeem the time at hand
Start every day with worship
To "thank" is a command
Until we see Him coming
Victorious in the sky
We'll run the race with gratitude
Xalting God most high
Yes, there'll be good times and yes some will be bad, but...
Z ion waits in glory...where none are ever sad!
Thankful Thursday once again. The weeks fly by. It has been a wonderful week. The weather is pleasant, even though we have had rain almost every day. We have yet to turn on the air conditioner and I am thankful for that.
I am thankful for graduations. Our nephew, Ross, graduated from college this week. He is seeking employment in law enforcement. This should be a great field for him as he has many years experience with his duties in the National Guard. We are praying he finds something soon.
Also another nephew, Luke, is graduating from High School. He plans to go to the Jr college here in town and study agriculture. His family business is farming, so he will continue that for his future. We am very proud of them.
I am thankful for our new refrigerate. Our old one finally quit us a few weeks ago. I am thankful the Lord provided the funds just when we needed them most.
I am thankful for ceiling fans. They help keep the house cool.
I am thankful that my children got to know my parents dog before he died. (more on this later). Spot helped the girls in overcoming their fear of dogs. They have a long way to go, but he sure helped. We will miss him.

AWESOME! I so enjoyed your post. I'm so sorry Spot past away, I just seen the picture of Lindy feeding him. He looked like a gentle loving puppy!
