I know I have some posts to catch up on because
I need to upload photos. Anyway, here's my
list of some things I'm thankful for.
I have so much to be thankful for, it's
impossible to mention each an every one of them.
I have something to say though first.
So many people say they don't mention often
enough how much they have to be thankful
for, that they should do more than just on
Thanksgiving Day. Well, when I hear things
like that, it makes me want to make sure that
doesn't happen to me. Well, it does, but it
makes me more determined to make
efforts that that doesn't happen. I can't say
that I always do, but I try to make an effort
to express my gratitude to God everyday
for something I have to be thankful for,
or at least look around and realize how
much I've been blessed with.
Something else. I don't have a problem with
people trying to be humble. That's wonderful!
People need to! What does bug me is when
people seem to uh...what's the word...belittle
the blessings they've been given. It's
wonderful to realize that God has been gracious,
and that our blessings are gifts from Him, but
instead of hearing how blessed they feel and
how much of a blessing their blessings are to
them, I feel like I more often than not hear
people constantly say," I don't deserve this.
I don't deserve this. I don't deserve this."
Be humble by all means! Acknowledge God's
graciousness, yes! But hey, I have something
to say (I guess I usually do, don't I?): ENJOY
what God's given you!! Focus on what you do
have! Focus on the good that is in your life!!
I don't deny that there is evil and darkness in
this fallen world, but hey, how are we as
Christians supposed to be a light to the world
if we only focus on all the bad things out there,
and that's all we seem to talk about???!!!!
There are times where I feel like that's all I
hear. Come on! There are some good things in the world!
Like beautiful sunsets, people who do demonstrate
kindness and care (don't take that for granted!!!),
friendly pets, there's many things in this life that
are worth noting and enjoying. And God's given
them to us because He loves us.

-Jesus Christ, my Savior who went to the cross when
He could've not
