A Thankful Heart

My husband says to me last nite-you know, we have a lot to be thankful for-we have a nice warm house, plenty of food, jobs, and money in the bank to pay our bills. I tell him back-I thank God each nite before I go to bed for all these things and more(I really do try to thank him daily!). But the truth of it is that I can say all those things, but I really don't know how lucky I am-I try to-but I've never gone hungry(not even for a day), always worked hard to stay ahead to pay bills, never lost a loved one in a war, always had a place to call home, still have both my parents, both my husband and I are in good health and our families along with both of us have a relationship with Jesus Christ. I can't imagine living in some other country where some, if not all of these things I would not have. I wonder a lot why God put me here-in this place and this time but I know he has a master plan and I trust him completely!

I do feel blessed in so many ways-I feel honored to have met each and every one of you thru blogging and I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!


  1. Hi Rebecca-I, too, am so thankful for the life that I have been blessed with. I don't understand it either, how some of us are so blessed while others suffer so. But I, too, trust that God knows what he's doing and some day it will all make sense.
    Thank you for being my friend, and thank you also for being there during this hard time.
    Happy Thanksgiving

  2. Hi Rebecca
    i suppose your post could be signed by thousands if not millions of bloggers...
    i always include the same things in my prayers
    being thankful for a warm home, clean sheets,
    a dry place to much taken for granted
    i know i've thanked GOD so many times for putting me here ~ but why me?
    and that's when i know he has the Master Plan and in HIS time i will find out
    so much to be thankful for
    that is one of the purposes for being.

    thankful for your blogger friendship
