30 Days of Thanks 2013: Day 15

"Give thanks with a grateful heart, 
Give thanks to the Holy One,
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son!"

I give thanks for the music that fills our home and lives.  Any given day, there are sounds of piano, flute, guitar and voices drifting through various corners of our home.  It is good to give thanks in song!

There is a bitter cold in the air today.  One that just leaves the bones feeling frigid.  I'm so thankful that we have shelter and warmth.  

I'm thankful that I'm able to teach and encourage my children in their Christian faith.  Earlier this week, we were talking about justification.  About how when we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior, He justifies us.  It's "just-as-if" I never sinned.  My children actually cheered out loud about that.  It is something  we all should cheer about.  Isn't that just awesome?

I'm amazed at the creativity that God has given my children.  Michael runs around with a 3 foot K'nex rocket strapped to his back that the kids helped him make.  I think how wonderful our imaginations work and I'm thankful God gave us this wonderful gift.

I'm thankful that I have all my mental faculties.  

I'm thankful that after being diagnosed 2 years ago with IC (interstitial cystitis) that I'm still managing it through diet and lifestyle changes.  I'm feeling pretty good these days. God is good to me!

" And now let the weak say, "I am strong."
Let the poor say, "I am rich, because of
what the Lord has done for us!"
Give thanks!"
