Thanksgiving was wonderful yesterday. I have not just THOUSANDS of reasons but MILLIONS of reasons to be thankful. I don’t have room to share every single thing, but I’m going to go into just a few of the things that caused my heart to SING yesterday.
Thank you Heather for letting us link-up and share our gratefulness today! I’m going to share my top 5 reasons to thank God today after a day focused on counting those precious gifts.
1. I am thankful that yesterday was not just Thanksgiving, but it was also my lovely mother’s birthday.
Here is the tribute I wrote to my mom,
‘Today is Thanksgiving, and I am SO excited that we are children of God, so thankful that we have the gift of the gospel , the power of God unto salvation, family, the Word of God, church, freedom to pray together, sermons to listen to, snow on the ground, good food, clothing, friends, and the list could keep going and going and going.
Today, I’m particularly grateful for my MOMMY! It’s not just a day to eat turkey and pumpkin pie. It’s a very very special day, because it’s my mommy’s birthday. She is my best friend. She is a woman who loves God so much and loves to talk about God and how awesome He is. She desires to know Him more, and she is always challenging me to grow in my relationship with God. She is one of my very best friends. We share pretty much everything with each other. She is diligent and so much kinder than me. She has so much compassion for the broken, the elderly, children, and other hurting people. Truly I want to praise her name in the gates today and MANY other days, because I am blessed beyond measure to have a mom who fears the Lord, loves Him above all else, and pours her life, her energy, and her love into serving Him by loving her family, her church family, and diligently pursuing Him with her whole heart, soul, mind, and body.
I love YOU MOM!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
