2. I’m thankful for the hope that I have in eternal life, and a home in heaven. This will not be my final destination!

3.  I’m thankful for the gift of each new day, and the hope that I have at the end of each day. The hope for tomorrow…a new day, and another opportunity to start over, another day to “get back up again”!

These are just a few of the many things that I am thankful for.

Thankful Thursday: 3 gifts in light

3 gifts in light that I am thankful for…

1. I’m thankful for electricity and the gift of light it brings us on a dark night.

2. I’m thankful for the way the sun lights up the day and shines on the big white clouds, and down through the trees to me!

3.  When the day is over, and the sun fades away, the last bit of light that shines is a reminder to me that yes…I am once again thankful for another good day, and for the Creator who made this great light for me!

These are just a few of the many things that I am so very thankful for today.

Thankful Thursday: 3 gifts orange

3 gifts orange:

Well, let’s see….orange isn’t really one of my “go to” colors, I’m more of a “blues” girl, but I think I found some pretty good orange things to be thankful for!

1. The dainty little orange poppy that pops up to greet us in the spring.

2. When the sun sets, leaving behind the brilliant orange glow across the water and the sky.

Quite possibly one of my favorite times of the day!

3. Sitting by a fire, chatting with friends, mesmerized by the orange glow, and enjoying the warmth of the fire as well as the friendship.
