I have so very much to be thankful for. I have been in terrible pain all week, it is lessening now, and I think I am thankful for the leg that is hurting, some others do not have a leg to hurt. Instead of complaining I want to praise God for feeling, for the pain, and for having the leg to hurt. I could be in such terrible shape now, but God has been good to me, he keeps me going, and he keeps me content. Only our Heavenly Father can do this. I give him the glory for all the things he is so wonderful in providing for me.
I have met so many new friends lately, and I am thankful for each of them, and what they have brought into my life. Everyone we meet gives us something different, and all those friends always give what we need, when we need it. Our gracious father sends the exact ones we need. Now my Saviour is still the best friend I have, and he always will be number one. I am thankful for you my sweet Jesus, that you loved me so much to die for me, and that you just keep giving and giving and giving, and I will forever and eternally be grateful for that. God bless you on this Thankful Thursday, give him the thanks and the praise he deserves. Have a wonderful day, and know you have a friend in Jesus.
