Thankful Thursday!




Be Thankful
By: Unknown, Henry Gibson

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something.
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for limitations.
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge.
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you're tired and weary.
Because it means you've made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those
who are also thankful for the setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.

What are you thankful for today?

I love this poem! I'm think I'm going to have to copy it and store it away to read when I need a reminder.
Thanks so much.

I just read your prayer request for your daughter on the LPM blog.
I'm praying!
Just yesterday an older gentleman stood at church to celebrate his birthday and when talking about being born again he said it was because of his praying mom and he started to cry as he told the story of how his mom never gave up on him & prayed for him. The prayers we mom's (and dad's) pray are effectual and I know God is hearing and He will answer.
It's a privilege to pray.
Love,
Valerie
