This coming weekend people around the United States will gather with friends and family to share a huge meal.  They may also have a time to share what they are thankful for.  Since November 1st I have been making a list of things the Lord has blessed me with.  I don't deserve any of it but God is a gracious God! (Something else to be thankful for!!)  I would like to share part of the list I came up with.

I’m thankful for…
1 … the cozy house God has blessed us with!!
2 …  a husband who makes me laugh.
3 …  a church family who looks out for us!
4 …  a husband who would spend his morning off to be a guest speaker for my class!
5 …  having such wonderful coworkers who help and encourage each other throughout the year!
6 …  the opportunity to go to church and freely worship with like believers!
7 …  a husband who will jump up in the mornings to help pack my lunch if I’m running late!
8 … being born into a Christian family with parents who pray for me daily.
9 … my students who show me why I love teaching everyday!
10 … a husband who does what he can to make me happy (such as getting Thanksgiving weekend off work so we can spend it with family!)
11 … a husband who has a strong desire to learn more about God and share his knowledge with others.
12 … parents who have showed their love in so many ways through the years. 
13 … the opportunity to have an impact on student’s lives.
14 … the trials I have gone through that have made me a stronger Christian!
15 … my students and their parents.  Just when I want to give up being a teacher they remind me why I do what I do every day!
16 … the little moments Tim and I share between our jobs!
17 … the opportunity to buy gifts for others.  It truly is a much greater blessing to give than to receive! 
18 ... Most of all, I’m thankful that God sent His only Son to die for me and rose again so I can go to Heaven!

The list could go on and on!  There is so much to be thankful for!  But the month of November shouldn't be the only time we thank the Lord for all He's done for us!  It should happen on a daily basis.   

I pray that you have a safe and fun filled weekend with your family!
