Let’s face it:
2020 has been a ridiculously unpredictable year. It’s been frightening, depressing, and sometimes exciting. Some of the things that have happened so far in 2020 probably would have never entered our minds last year.
if you stop and think about it, there have also been many blessings.
Stop and be silent.
Think on the blessings that the Lord bestows on each of us daily.
In the words of the old hymn,
The joy of helping others.
A surprise visit or phone call from a friend.
A beautiful day.
Comfort in sorrow.
Help with struggles.
A good report from your doctor.
Completing a task. Graduating.
The birth of a grandchild.
The purchase of a forever home.
A much-needed vacation.
An impromptu picnic or date with your sweetheart.
The comfort of home.
The love and support of friends and family.
Those are just a few that have come to mind.
Make your own list.
The Lord blesses us in SO many ways. Even if the world seems to have lost its ever-living mind, our Lord remains constant.
Give thanks to Him.
Call on His name.
Make His name known everywhere.
Look to Him. Seek Him always.
God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Give Thanks Along With Me!

Michele & Mandy I’m having technical issues with InLinz with their updated login, apparently my tablet is now too old for the update version! So I will leave my post link below to still join in this community 😀
My post is “Freedom of Gratitude”
I accepted a challenge recently (and will feature on the blog on Friday) to make a list of 100 thinks I’m thankful for. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to come up with that many.
2020 has definitely been crazy, but yes, there have also been many wonderful good things in this year too. I need to remember to remember those!
Thanks Jennifer. I’ll . to add your link to the inlinkz
It’s amazing that there are always things to be thankful for, if we stop and think about it.
oh, Yes indeed!
