    Me. WOW! There are so many things that I am thankful for.....I live in a country that's free where I can worship the Lord. My family and heritage means so much to me. But here's my list for all to see.

    I thank God for Grace
    I thank God for Mercy
    I thank God He hears me, when I fall on my knees
    I thank God, because I know He cares, loves me and gives me peace when burdens come to hard to bear.

    I guess I can say that I Thank God for these.

    So if you would like to, go ahead and post here what your Thankful for.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all and may it be a blessed one.

    My husband,
    my family,
    my friends,
    that I live in America,
    have a roof over my head,
    and that I can still catch snowflakes on my tounge. [​IMG]

    I truly am grateful for a Loving Savior who continues to forgive even though I am so very weak.

    I am grateful for a Loving Father, Who hears and answers prayers.

    I am so extremely grateful for a loving wife, who cares for me and takes care of me despite my many weaknesses. She is the greatest blessing of my life.

    I am so very thankful for wonderful children who desire to serve the Lord. They seem to be the happiest kids on the planet and I can only thank my saintly wife for that.

    I am so grateful for a roof over our heads and food on our table, for transportation, (old though it may be) and for the many bounties of life.

    I am thankful for friends and extended family who care about me and my family.

    And then back to our loving Savior who through His infinite atonement, cleanses and sanctifies and brings peace and joy in the midst of a troubled world.

    I am grateful for soldiers in far away lands who are fighting to keep us free!

    I will continue to pray for the leaders of our nation. I am praying for Barak Obama and his success like no other president before. As I watched the walters interview last night, I have hope that he will make correct decisions for our nation. All I can do is pray for him and hope for the best for our country.

    I am thankful for you good folks... you live all over... from New Zealand, England, Canada, Florida, California, Washington, Maine or all points inbetween, your love enriches and blesses my life.

    Happy Thanksgiving

    I am Thankful that i was blessed with my family who is very loving and supportive..i'm very thankful that i know i will always have someone i can turn to in a time of need.....because, sadly, so many people dont have that. I had a 14 year old boy over today for Thanksgiving..he will be my future foster son (this coming tuesday)...and he brought us a handmade card thanking us for inviting him to our Thanksgiving dinner, he said he was so happy when they told him he was coming to my house today...he hasnt had a family Thanksgiving in 4 years....so, since he was 10 years old he really hasnt had a family....and so, i'm also very thankful that i was able to give him that today. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!..., Wendy..[​IMG]..

    I am thankful for the abundance of what we have in the face of all we have lost in all thanks to my Father in Heaven. He keeps us, saves us, loves us no matter what, and there is nothing larger to be thankful for.

    I am thankful for my incredible fiance. In the lowest point of my adult life, he came along when I really believed I would never find him. That's God again, by the way. [​IMG]

    I could take up pages with all I am thankful for, but I will leave room for everyone else.

    After spending five weeks in India, I'm thankful that I live in a place where we have plenty to eat, a home of our own, lots of space, smooth roads, and clean air and water. I'm also really glad we aren't in Mumbai, since the places in the news right now are where my family (including my two children) were standing two weeks ago!
