Thankful

A friend of mine posted some weeks back, and I am sure some of you may have seen this already:

If I wake up tomorrow, with only the things I thanked God for today..... what will I have?

WOW! Ummmm HELLO! I don't know about you, but that really hit me in the gut. We take God's love for us for granted so much don't we? I personally, KNOW, that I don't thank him nearly enough for all of the blessings in my life.

So let this stand as YOUR wake up call, just as it did for me!

If YOU woke up tomorrow with only the things you thanked God for today, what would YOU have?

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
Psalm 136:1

  1. You know, you are right. That does get your attention doesn't it? Was I thankful today? Did I say thank you about anything? Good reminder.

  2. I try to remember to thank God every day for my family. But life does get in the way and we let our focus go away from where it should be. I'm also guilty.

  3. Oh yeah...I saw this on someone's Facebook page awhile back, and I shared it on my page. It really makes you stop and think, because we are so quick to complain and slow to show an attitude of gratitude. That's something I'm working to change. Have a great weekend.
