thankful heart


it is the Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend ...

i am thankful for a peaceful home, with leo in it ...
i am thankful that my sister is feeling more comfortable ...
i am thankful for so much answered prayer ...
i am thankful that God answers "no" to some of my requests - since He knows what is best ...
i am thankful for so many many things in my life ... which i have been thinking of this morning.

the foremost is Salvation ... knowing Jesus as my Saviour and Lord ...

i am thankful for prayer ... and friends who pray ... and care ...

i am thankful for y-o-u, my friends who i have never met, except through our blogs ...

blessings and peace to you ... this Thanksgiving weekend!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and the encouraging words. I'm off to read yours -- I really identified with your library post. I love the smell of a library! I think libraries are the coziest places.
