    What are you Thankful for ....Giving Thanks this Thanksgiving

    I just thought this would be a nice thread for us to state some of the things we are Giving Thanks for, Here's just a short list for me...as I have so much to be Thankful for:

    That the Lord loves me & saved me by his Grace.
    That although my husband is on dialysis, he is strong & doing well, his Love for me.
    My children, although they are grown are still young in my heart
    My home & all of it contents.
    The Lord has been so good to me and yes I give Him the Glory for all I have spiritual & physical.

    This too, is just a a short list for me:
    Thank You....
    That I live a Christ-centered life; that I have children, grand-children and great-grand-children; that I have many friends; that I have the capability to love and be loved, and the ability to serve where He sends me; and that He has seen fit to improve my health so I MAY serve Him. He has helped me in innumerable ways and has seen that I have the means to do what He has directed.
    And last, but certainly not least, thanks to Him for this beautiful, bountiful country we live in!!
    Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!!!
    If you feel like you're special...it's 'cause you are!

    So many things to be Thankful for. But mostly that I know deep down that I can trust my Lord with my everything. Thats the only way I can make it some days.

    I am thankful for everything in my life. I've gone through trials & tribulations like everyone else. I've had some health problems but I'm still alive and kicking. I can always find someone with a worse situation. I know God is in control of my life so I have nothing to fear.

    I am so grateful for all the things in my life and that the Lord walks beside me daily and helped me find a surgeon that knew enough to be able to correct a surg I had 14 yrs ago that was one wrong and left me unable to walk very much mostly around the house and work and now this new surg done is already helping my foot feel better than in a very long time. I get nervous thinking it won't get better the rest of the way but I have faith. I am now in the PT after the surg and have to work on it at home also to help it get better. I thank God for the family I'm lucky enough to have especially my DH since he had to take care of me all those wks I had to stay off my foot. He was doing everything in the house, some cooking, and take care of me so I have a lot to be grateful for all the time. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone hope you all have a great day. Sue

    I am thankful for Christ sacrifice on the cross for my sins. I am thankful for my loving family especially my wonderful husband. I tell him he is my greatest earthly blessing after the Holy Spirit!!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I am thankful for my happy life, good health, wonderful husband, extended family and good friends. I am extremely grateful for the gift of time I was given this year when I retired. I wake up every morning remembering how lucky I am to have the entire day ahead of me, blissfully stress-free. I have been blessed in so many ways and this truly is the best time of my life.

    I cannot say more than you already have. I thank the Lord for his grace and mercy and I am so blessed that I should never find anything to complain about. I have 2 of my children and one of my grands with me today and will spend the afternoon 4 generations of my sisters family.
    A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway.

    I agree with you all...so much to be thankful for! Above all else, that Jesus came, and died to give us life, and more abundantly. We can be rich in His grace and mercy, faith, and His unconditional love. Awesome!!
    I am blessed with abundant health, a wonderful family, great friends, a home and modern amenities, etc.
    It is having joy in the little things!
    Blessings to you all!
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    I am Thankful for my family, my church and my home. That God keeps providing me with the income I need for the necessities and directing me to do his work in my community. I look forward to his work in my life and the blessings he provides in all that I am able to do.

    I have much to be grateful for. My family, my wonderful friends, my home, my health and the health of my family. I am also grateful for the love of my beautiful dog. I think that sometimes it feels that listing my blessings is like bragging because I am so blessed. I too am grateful for the gift of time and hope that I will use it wisely to help my family and others. Blessed be.

    What a nice idea to post thanks. I'm thankful for the Lord's saving grace in my life. Having been near death earlier this year, I am so very thankful for His healing grace in my body. I am thankful we celebrated another of our daughters wedding in September. Two weeks ago, my husband was spared death when a tree he was cutting down fell the wrong way and he was pinned under it. He was injured and had back surgery, but was spared. Another daughter and family just moved into a new house and we celebrated Thanksgiving day with her, SIL and our grand kids. This was a great Thanksgiving for us. We are so blessed.

    I to am very thankful that Christ died on the cross for my sins. I do not know what I would do if my Lord and Savior wasn't there every day for me. He is my very best friend. He has blessed me in so many ways.

    I'm thankful for same things as other posters - especially my Lord - but I'm also very thankful for my dentist. If it wasn't for him, I'd be drinking all my meals.
