Thankful Thursday

             What am I thankful for? I am thankful for my life, and for another day, in which to live that life. I am thankful that I have been able to rise above the obstacles, that were put in my path, after my stroke in September of this year. I am thankful for the blessed assurance, that Jesus is mine, and I am a daughter of the King. That makes me a princess, although, my crown is sometimes crooked, My Father still loves me. I am thankful for a forgiving, and merciful Father, who has never, and will never, give up on me. I am thankful for a Father, who sees my full potential, when, sometimes people, see no potential in me, including myself. I am thankful for a Father who gave me the best gift ever, my salvation, so rich, and so free. Thank You Father.

My crown needs dusting off at times. I am thankful that God brings us through our times of trouble and is there to keep us in the palm of his hands. Love your beautiful pictures and scriptures you have used. God bless you now and during the Christmas season.
