" Since my youth, O God, You have taught me, and to this day I declare Your marvelous deeds.Psalm 71:17 ."

How many ways have you been blessed by God? Relationally? Materially? Spiritually? Physically?
His blessings are all around us, but we too easily get distracted. Consider an activity where you write in your journal or on a sheet of paper all the different ways God has blessed you.
Whatever God has done for you, stop to remember His blessings in detail. And say a word of thanks.
Have you discovered the wonder of gratitude?

No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks to GOD.

Hi Sandy, thank you for coming by !
I am just so very thankful for friends like you. ~ Lifelong friends and relationships are OFTEN so very hard to find...but I thank GOD that HE has provided those precious souls JUST at the right time in my life, each and every time.

Also I thank GOD daily for the gift of eyesight... and the ablity to hear the birds singing..most especialy the cooing of our sweet pair of Turtle Doves we are blessed with having in our yard. ( Each year they build a nest in our Arbor )
And ability to get up each morning and walk and move this old body of mine. And to go out and appreciate my garden.

And for the gift of creativity, and the resources to afford to do those simple things we enjoy doing ...that bring joy to our lives and hopefully to the lives of others.

But MOST OF ALL as a Christian, I thank HIM for HIS most unselfish gift of all... HIS SON.... JESUS CHRIST.
