Thankful Thursday

I have so many things to be thankful for, but there are times that I lose sight of the reasons I should be thankful and focus instead on things that are bringing me down. Today I am going to take the time to stay focused on the tings for which I am thankful.

Enter into His gates with Thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise:
Be thankful unto Him and bless His name.
Psalm 100:4 KJV

~Top 5 Reasons I am Thankful Today~
1. I am thankful that I have come to know the Lord, and to know His love for me. It makes me thankful that I am worth so much to Him!
2. I am very thankful for my family. I couldn't ask for a better husband or father for my children! Emily and Natalie are precious blessings that can always make me smile - I love them all even when they make me want to cry! No matter what, I will always be thankful for my family!
3. I am thankful that I know that whatever comes my way, I can get through AND I wont have to get through it alone!
4. I am thankful that we are able to make due with one pay check so that I can stay at home with our children. Even though it is not always easy, it is worth it!
5. I am thankful for some of the smaller things in life too - COFFEE and sunshine!

  1. So nice to have you join us for Thankful Thursday. You're right, it's important to give thanks in all the things we face. I look forward to TT so much and finding new things to be thankful for.

    I'm also a stay at home mom. Our son is five and started kindergarten this August.

    God bless,

  2. Hi Katrina,

    Thanks for sharing your thankful heart with us. Truly we have many things to thank God daily despite all the ups and downs of life. I am thankful that we can count our blessings and thank God together through Thankful Thursday.

    Thank God for blessing you with such lovely children and enabling you to stay at home and take care of them. May God bless you and family always. Take care!

    God bless,

  3. Bless you for counting your blessings.

  4. Indeed we have a lot to be thankful for! Many blessings to you!

  5. You have a wonderful list of blessings! I have just been doing this for a few weeks now and I LOVE it. Dwelling on what God has blessed us with, makes for a happy heart. I am happy you have been able to stay home with your kids. It is hard I know, but soo worth it in the end. I was a stay at home mom and my kids are grown now. There was times if I didn't know if we would make it, but the Lord ALWAYS provided. God Bless you, Debbie

  6. I am having a rough day today and really needed this so I could refocus on the right priorities. Thanks!

  7. Hi Katrina,
