Be Thankful
Author Unknown

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire. If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful for the difficult times, during those times you grow.
Be thankful for your 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,because they will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary, because it means you've made a difference.
It's easy to be thankful for the good things. A life a 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.

1 Thessalonians 5:18

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
I hope that each and everyone one of you have a Happy Thanksgiving, that you may spend your day with loved ones and share a wonderful meal together.
God Bless all of you and I am so thankful for each and everyone of you.

I can't be reminded too many times to be thankful for things that don't APPEAR to be good, but actually are, if they are from the hand of God. Thanks for sharing this.

Oh Ginger, I love your cute fall pumpkin table decorations. It's so cute!

And 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 are some of the key inspirational Bible verses for my life! So great to read it this morning and be encouraged. Much as I WANT to be perfect at them, it's always an ongoing process and I appreciate your sweet words of encouragement to go with them. Great reminder!

Thanks again for another blessed Spiritual Sunday. Happy Thanksgiving! :)

Hi Ginger ~ had to say "thank you" once again for giving us a place to share our faith and encourage one another. I've brewed a pot of tea, have the fireplace going (it's rainy) and am visiting blogs on Spiritual Sunday on my iPad (Hubby's watching football.) It's the perfect Sunday afternoon, and you are the part of the blessing. Happy Thanksgiving xo
