2Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
I am thankful for the basic things today~
my little family:
my husband of almost 19 years (hard to believe what all we’ve been through – but he has been faithful to love me: always, forever, no matter what!)
my 3 children; we are complete.
my extended family:
my parents and my in-laws are all godly Christians. I am so thankful for that heritage.
my siblings and in-law siblings – very varied in personalities and situations and how much we are in contact with each … but never the less, thankful for all of them!
grandparents who have now all gone before us. I am thankful to have known most of them very well.
the comforts God affords us in this century – at this time, my home is warm (except the drafty parts!) and my bed is comfy and my pantry & fridge are full.
the washer & dryer work!
my dishwasher continues to help me with one of my most-dreaded tasks.
friends who encourage me, pray for me, and just remind me to have fun sometimes!!
and most of all for a faithful God who is the Source of all these blessings.
