With Thanksgiving approaching, I thought I would share “My Thoughts and Prayers” on what I am thankful for. I am thankful that I have a job. Last year at this time I was unemployed. I am thankful for my four beautiful children. I know that many times I am impatient with them and I lose my temper often, but I am truly blessed to have such wonderful kids. I am thankful for my wonderful and beautiful wife. I would not be the man that I am today if it were not for her. I don’t show her my appreciation as much as I should. She has stuck with me through thick and thin and for that I am forever grateful to her.

Most of all, I am thankful for my faith. God has truly blessed me and my life. I am grateful not only for those blessings, but also that I am able to see those blessings. In the society that we live in, where we are programmed to think that poverty is not being able to buy everything that you want, it is hard to see all that God has blessed us with. He has blessed me. Not only does God provide me and my family with everything we need, but He also showers us with His love. And that’s what life is all about–basking in the glow of God’s love and giving glory to Him for it in all that we do.

Thank you, Lord, for all of your wonderful blessings. Thank you for your Love, your Mercy, and your Graces. Please give us the insight to see how You have blessed us and the strength to carry out Your will in our lives.
