So much to thank him for, on this Thankful Thursday, I just do not know where to start.

First:  I thank him for giving us a safe journey down to Jacksonville, FL today, we had to take our animals down for their yearly rabie and booster shots, get their heart guard meds too, God is so good, he just let us have a nice time of sweet fellowship, and travel, both dogs were very well behaved too, I was very proud of them both, they do not get off the farm very often so it is nice to know we can take them out in public and they do behave, that was indeed a blessing.

Second:  My orginal Barbara's Blessings came back online today, it is where I have many pages of various things, lots of family photos and my testimony of accepting Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. It has been down for about 6 months now, I figured it probably had closed down for good, and no one told me. So it was a blessing for me to see it up again today, if you care to go visit:

Third: I want to thank the lord for giving to me great salvation so rich and free, it was a free gift I had to just reach out and accept it, that free gift is Jesus Christ, just accept him and he will give you his salvation, completely free, forever and eternal. John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life".

Fourth: I thank God for my family, they are all saved, they are all healthy and they are filled with love and consideration, I praise God for that gift he he give us.

Fifth: I want to thank God for keeping me looking to him for all my needs, I take him at his word and just trust him enough to know he will keep me safe, he will take care of me, I am not trusting the government to take care of me, I am trusting the lord, he never will go bankrupt. I am afraid our government has, and I want the one who owns the cattle on the hills to care for me, and he does you know, he even tells us in his word, 1Peter 5:7 "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you".  He also said he would never leave me or forsake me, Hebrew 13:5 "Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee".

Yes he has given me many promises in his holy book, and if I read and study I will know what God wants from me, what God wants for me, and what God can do through me, that sure does makes me thankful, and sure gives lots of peace to my soul. So what are you thankful for today? Hope your day is blessed and that you can be a blessing to some one else. God bless you and keep you.

Hi Barbara, I am thankful today that my husband had a safe trip to Hendersonville to check on his elderly parents --and that he is back home now with me.

I am also thankful that George's parents (ages 90 and 98) are doing okay.... Praise God!

Have a great evening.

Great post Barbara! Oh how much I too have to be thankful for can read all about it at my THIS IS THE DAY post...I should have put CPR on the title as this is so vital for this blessing.

I thank the LORD for his GRACE and MERCY in our lives..daily.

Even a short trip can be perilous, so I thank the LORD for watching over you today also!

Rejoicing with you..
