30 days of thanks

As you are aware, it's already November!  How can that really be?!?  I don't know...but alas 'tis true.  Since it is the month of Thanksgiving, I am going to verbalize to my hubby and friends on facebook one thing each day for which I am thankful.  I am thankful for so many things in my life, and I want highlight and pray about a different one each day this month.  But I also want to give God the glory and praise for each of these things, because I am thankful to Him for all He has blessed me with.

So, then I can come into this time of year with a thankful heart!  It wasn't originally my idea though.  So don't give me the credit, I've seen several people do this type of thing on facebook over the years.  If you'd like to join in either by blogging about it or putting up statuses feel free!  Spread the thankful heart!

Reminds me of one of my all time favorite songs...Give thanks...

"Give thanks with a grateful heart.  Give thanks unto the holy one.  Give thanks, because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son...And now, let the weak say "I am strong", let the poor say "I am rich" because of what the Lord has done for us.  Give Thanks."

BTW I will try to update this post daily this month ...
