Thankful Thursday-Gentleness


Iris chose gentleness as the theme for this weeks thankful Thursday, such a great theme. I am very thankful for the loving, and always gentle hands of my Father, as He picks me up again and again. This daughter falls down quite a bit on her daily walk through life. I am thankful for the gentle heart of my lovebug, he patiently takes such care of me, especially my heart. I am thankful for my sister, she is so gentle with my feelings. I pour them out over the phone to her daily, she never complains. I am thankful for the gentle care that I receive from all of my doctors, they are all doing their best to help me to feel better. I am thankful for prayer warriors, that gently lift me up in their prayers. Where would I be without them? I am thankful for the gentle kindness that is shown to me daily by so many of you dear ladies. I love you all. Erase the harshness of the world, by treating each other gently.

I love especially your last sentence, Denise. I think if we (as a whole) more gentle with each other, I think the world would really benefit from it.
I am so glad that you have gentle family and friends in your life. It makes the travel this side of heaven a little easier.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us.

Be blessed today and always...

You have a gentle sweet heart and I love that about you.
And you are right....a little loving gentleness erases the mess of this world. It brings a little safety into the lives of those who have raised walls of self protection.
