Today

Today I woke up feeling blue, depressed, down and for no apparent reason! So I thought that I'd post my thanks for everything I can think of. To praise Him and thank Him always changes your heart. Psalm 9:1 "I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds." Here's all that I'm thankful for:

My Lord and Savior
My home
My hubby
...family, church family, Recovery at the Village, chai tea lattes, my cats Arty and Leo, my soft/firm bed, A/C, the birds that I hear every morning and the squirrels running around all day, the turtle that makes it across the road without being run over, freedom to worship and read the Bible, that Jesus made Himself known to me at the tender age of 7, backyard bbq's, Texas heat, blueberries, the wii, soups, sunsets, the beautiful view of the trees outside most every window in my house, the Bible, the gym, leisure time, good health, fire and police departments, a flushing toilet, Mr. Dash (my car!), knockout roses that don't require a bit of maintenance, make up, grocery stores, the internet......

Well I could go on but please don't take my list as a form of boasting, I really am thankful for these these and the point was to change my heart. Well and honestly searching the Scriptures online for a verse to post in here changed my heart and adding the things I'm thankful probably helped too. God is so good! Please share with me the things you're thankful for. I don't mind comments, as a matter of fact I love comments and I wish some of you weren't so shy because I know you're out there reading this blog! And maybe, just probably God will change your heart too by sharing with me and whoever else reads what it is you're thankful for.

I'll admit I haven't taken the time to think this through the way you did, but I'm thankful for: a good marriage; healthy kids and self; a big kitchen that will fit all our stuff; Logan's new school AND his new meds; my great church home; friends; a comfy bed.
