Thankful Thursday
~ Thanksgiving Edition

Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints,
and give thanks to his holy name.
~ Psalm 30:4 (ESV emphasis mine)

There are so many things to be thankful for, don’t you agree? In the US the ‘official’ Thanksgiving Day is celebrated today. But why should we wait for an entire year to give thanks? That is why we ‘meet’ once a week to share our thanks…I hope you will still join us this week for the ‘Thanksgiving Edition’ 😛 …

Today I want to share with you the things that just popped in my head this morning…the things we might take for granted on a day-to-day basis. So here it goes:

  • I am thankful for God’s provision – not only salvation, but provision on a day-to-day basis — the ‘Daily Bread’. I so enjoy spending time with Him in the morning; it gives me the right perspective to start my day..
  • I am thankful for my beloved. He still is my greatest cheerleader; even when I have a very bad photo session. He still encourages me and shows me ways how can ‘rescue’ photos…
  • I am so thankful that our son is doing so well. It really was hard for me to really let go, but I know that he is in God’s hands now…
  • I am thankful for the Internet. Not only can I connect with believers around the world, but I can share my faith with anyone who wants to read what I am writing about my Lord. I am also grateful because I can order stuff from my home-country Germany. I was so giddy this morning that I had to share with my friend in Florida. You know what I ordered? A German Bible and a study companion for the new year!!!!! Yes, I do I have a German Bible, but I wanted a more contemporary version (my German is a getting little rusty when it comes to reading 😆 )…
  • I am thankful for my radio station. I love singing praises every morning going to work (and coming home)…
  • I am thankful for our home. My dream-home? Hm, I would love to live closer to the beach (closest is in California). BUT I do have a roof over my head…
  • I am thankful for my job. My dream-job? Hardly!!! But it helps to contribute to our household income to pay our bills etc. Maybe one day God will allow my dream to become my job (with God all things are possible)…
  • Last but not least I am thankful for a four-day-weekend!!! Wahoo!!!!!

Oh.my – I could go on for ever, but I want you not to be bugged down with just my post. Go out and ‘meet’ other thankful Bloggers 🙂 …So, what are you thankful for this week? Please share with us by leaving your link below…

Thank you for stopping by today. Remember: It does not have to be declared a national (US) holiday to be thankful 😉 . Have a blessed Thanksgiving weekend!

  18. Melanie says:

    I love this post, Iris! I participate in Thankful Thursday as a means to focus on my many blessing more often… what a joy it has been for me!

    You really spoke to me thru your words about your current job vs. your dream job. I have something similar right now with a full-time job that is good and pays the bills, but it is not my dream and I am slowly pursuing that dream “after hours”. Thank you… your words here were the encouragement I needed this morning!

  19. Angela says:

    This is my second time commenting, I don’t think the first one went through.

    I mentioned that I linked to your Thanksgiving Thursday. I wanted to share the Thanksgiving Proclamation with you and your readers, but I never got the chance to post the direct link…Oh, I just realize what I did. When the computer asked for my web site, that’s where I should have pasted what I’d copied. Okay,, I just answered my own question.

    I’m going to try it again.

  20. Angela says:

    Okay, ladies, I’m so sorry that I have two entries. The first one can be deleted. I went back to try, but couldn’t.

    The second link shows the Thanksgiving Proclamation. Hope you all enjoy reading it.
