Spiritual Sundays ~ Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all my Canadian friends!


It is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and I thought I would share some things that I am thankful for...

I am thankful for the many blessings in my life; the love of my family and friends, my home, the clothes in my closet, and good food on the table. I never ever take those blessings for granted!

I am thankful for the freedom I have in this country to worship God. 

I am thankful for prayer...
Many of you have prayed for me this past year and I want to thank you.
"The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much." ~ James 5:16

I am thankful for the Word of God...
"He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength." ~ Isaiah 40:29
When I am weak, He makes me strong.

"Whatever is true, honourable, right, pure, lovely, of good report ...let your mind dwell on these things." ~ Philippians 4:8
Letting my mind dwell on pleasant things, keeps me in a positive frame of mind when perhaps everything around me is telling me otherwise.

The Lord has rescued me from so many things and in so many ways that I can't help but give Him praise for the good things in my life.

"Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits;
Who pardons all your iniquities; Who heals all your diseases;
Who redeems your life from the pit;
Who crowns you with loving kindness and compassion;
Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle." ~ Psalm 103: 1-5

LIVE LIFE WITH AN ATITUDE OF GRATITUDE

Please join our lovely hostess Charlotte who hosts Spiritual Sundays every week. You will be inspired and encouraged. The Lord bless you today and I pray you too will count your blessings!

Happy Thanksgiving Sandi! I love your little glittery pumpkins.
What a beautiful list of gratitude.
Philippians 4:8 is one of my favorites.

Happy Thanksgiving, dear Sandi. I love this post. The white pumpkins are so pretty. Our son was over at the house the other day and we got to talking about pumpkins. I made the statement that I wondered what color the white pumpkins were inside. My son said he didn't know there were white pumpkins. I guess he needs to get out more. LOL
Right now I'm making some pumpkin bread and it smells wonderful. I'll eat it and celebrate Thanksgiving with you.
Blessings,
Charlotte
