Friday Fun: What Are You Thankful For?


“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” I Thessalonians 5:18

Do you take the time to thank God for all the things with which you have been blessed? I know that sometimes in the craziness of this life we forget to stop and say,”Thank you.” Today I want to do something different. I borrowed this idea from a friend and I wanted to share it with you.

Today I want us to take a few minutes to think of 5 things for which we are thankful. These 5 things cannot be the big things, like God, family and country. They have to be 5 simple things, something that will help us to remember to be thankful today. We always seem to be thankful for the big things, but what about all of the little things which God blesses us with each day.

I will go first:

  1. Today I am thankful for you, my dear readers.
  2. Today I am thankful for quite time alone with God. Time that I can sit and listen for God to speak and to study His word.
  3. Today I am thankful for warm coffee to wake me.
  4. Today I am thankful for the ability to bless others with God’s word.
  5. Today I am thankful for a safe, comforting place to call home.

Now, it is your turn. Please join me by commenting below and listing 5 things for which you are thankful.

Let us always remember to count our blessings. May we never find ourselves too busy to stop and remember how blessed we are each day.


Friday Favorites


I thought, today, we would have a little fun. It is Friday after all.

Today I would like us to take some time to share our favorites. It can be your favorite Scripture, your favorite Christian song, or your favorite uplifting or encouraging quote. You choose.

All I ask is that you keep it clean and remember that we are here to glorify God. So be considerate when you share your comments.

I really do enjoy hearing from my readers. I know I do most of the talking, but today I would like to listen. Yes, for those of you who know me well, I really can listen without talking 😉

So, I will start us off…

1. My favorite Scripture of all times is Jeremiah 29:11:



This verse brings me great hope every time I read it. How awesome is the God we serve? He thinks of us, and makes great plans for each of us.

2. My favorite Christian song right now is Mandisa- Good Morning.

How fun is this song? I love to go in my children’s room in the morning and crank up this song. It just makes for a “Good Morning!”

3. I like a lot of different quotes, but this one is fun, so I wanted to share it with you today:

I hope these favorites of mine have brought a smile to your face and encouragement to your heart. I pray that you will have a great Friday in the Lord.

Now it is your turn. Please take a moment and share some of your favorites here so we can all enjoy them. Please remember that we are here to glorify God, so please post cautiously.

God bless you today!
