Are you thankful today for God’s beautiful treasures? I think of just the treasure of waking up every single morning and saying, “Good morning Lord.” I love the treasure of prayer that He gave us so that we could communicate, and I have to admit I don’t use it as much as I should. I do pray in the morning and the evening, and all through the day when someone comes to mind or as I’m doing housework thanking Him for my family and all He’s given us. I find myself when I’m at school subbing praying as I sit and watch the children work.
I am thankful for this beautiful Fall season. I am thankful for all seasons and love being in a state where we see seasons, but they don’t last long. It can be in the 20s one day and the 70s the next. You can’t beat that. I love seeing the winds blowing some days right now, but not everyday. I love watching the leaves falling and blowing across the yard and the trees just starting to change. In Texas we don’t see those beautiful colors until November, but they are starting and I enjoyed driving to pick up my grandson today and seeing some of those changes.
As I reflected this evening on things I am thankful for, I wanted to stop and look up some Bible verses to write down about thankfulness so here they are. I hope you enjoy them.
