I am thankful for so many things. This Thanksgiving feels so different. I truly feel like it is a time when I genuinely am celebrating the blessings God has given me. I am thankful for my salvation and all that knowing Jesus entails. A life of abundant grace, knowing that I have the Holy Spirit who can help me to learn and know the scripture that can lead me. I am so thankful for the scripture that God has provided. I am thankful for the wisdom God has given others as they speak it to me. Thankful for a husband that knows and lives out the Word of God. I love when we talk, that he will say "The bible says, the Lord says" or is always referring to a Biblical principle. I thank God that I am in a church where the leaders are grounded in the Word, the Truth and they live it. Thank you Lord for that. I've lived it out differently before so I am thankful for the truth now. I am thankful for friends who lovingly correct me because they love the Lord more than me. Besides having shelter, meals everyday (too many actually) healthy family, a great school system and the many things in my life that are privileges--it's almost shameful at how great life can be. I am thankful for contentness in life because of Jesus Christ and the sacrifice he gave for me. So completely undeserving, but thankful me.

Eph 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;

2Pe 1:3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence
