Last year about this time I heard someone say that a great way to prepare for thanksgiving was to go thru the alphabet and think of a blessing for each letter so this year I started early and almost have one for each letter.
I am having a little trouble on the last few,but wanted to post this before Thursday.
A- Assurance of everlasting life thru Jesus Christ our Lord.
B- Bible The blessing of being able to pick up God's word anytime(even at work) and read His promises.
C- Mrs. Crosby: the teacher I work with each day, She is not only a friend but a mentor with my teaching and some to ask advice about being a Godly wife and mother.
D- Dwight and his family: My younger brother, Even though we don't get to see each other very often I know if I need him he would be there.
F- Faithfulness of God: God has been faithful through many events this year and over the years and shown us He is in control.
G- God's love for us: He sent his only son to die for us.
H- Health For the most part we are all healthy. Some aches and pains here and there put over all good.
I- In-Laws: I am thankful for a wonderful mother and father in law. They love to do things as a family and are a wonderful example to our family of God's love and making a marriage work.
J- Job: I am thankful I have a job. Many do not have a job and I get to work in a Christian school and this year learn so many things by working in a class with a seasoned teacher.
K-Keys for Kids: This is a ministry of Children's Bible Hour that we listen to each evening with Rachel as our family devotion time. This gives a chance to talk to her about things we may not always think about.Check it out on www.ITOADU.com
L- learning being able to learn each day more about Christ and teaching.
M- Memories not only from my childhood but we have made in 18 years of marriage. A mom who is still living and trust God. She raised us to love the Lord and to teach our children well.
N- Nieces and Nephews Timothy,Taylor, Brandon, Brayden and Ashlyn , Each is so different and special.
P- Philip A loving husband and friend, God has truly given me the man best suited for me. He loves God and me no matter what and stands beside me through every part of life. What more could a girl want.
Q- Quiet times Sometimes this is early in the morning, on the computer, reading God's word or just relaxing with coffee.
R- Rachel God has blessed us with her. She has a true desire to follow God and has asked Jesus into her heart. We have some rough times but that is part of growing up.
S- Salvation The gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. We don't have to earn it. The assurance that fellow believers are with him and we will see them someday.
T - Tim and Tania and their faithfulness to take care of Mom and their family.
U- Unfailing love of God- God is there all the time He NEVER leaves us!
W- Wise teachers and Staff at Ridge Christian Academy ( Rachel's and my school)
X- Exceeding great and precious promises are given unto us. 2 Peter 1:14 (I know it starts with e not x)
