What About YOU? I Know You are Thankful

I know you. I know you are thankful for long lists of blessings from above. As my daughter used to say when someone had candy, “Will you share?” Please list an item or more that you are grateful for, perhaps something you used to take for granted, but no longer do.

I am thankful for my job. Because of it, I meet many interesting people, keep my brain in shape, and earn money to support my writing, kitties, and restaurant hopping habits.

I’m also grateful for the relationship I have with God through Jesus Christ.
The older I grow, the more He means to me.
Every good thing I have and am came from His hand of love.
Guess what. He loves you, too.

Your turn…


  1. I'm grateful for a new lease on life. Moving from a crumbling house, downsizing to a great house...perfect for my now smaller family! The gift of a stranger...a car!!! A healthy family that loves to be together. There's so much to be thankful for!

    Happy Thanksgiving, friend!

  2. I'm thankful for my husband. We've had some rough patches lately, but God has brought us together recently and reminded me why I fell in love with him in the first place. :)

  3. I am grateful for a lot of things and I can't name them all but what tops my list is my Mother. I am grateful to God for giving me the mom he has given :)

  4. I'm thankful for God's Word.

    Seriously, I had a few days when I kept opening to random pages and for some reason kept landing on villages being destroyed and anger passages. Then a good friend told me to stop opening to random pages. She said what I needed right now was a little Ephesians. Man, was she ever right.

  5. I'm so grateful for my husband and two sons. I feel so incredibly blessed. Thanks for asking.

  6. I'm thankful for all God has done for me, and that my hubbie doesn't fuss when I'm on the computer too long. :)

  7. I'm thankful for friends who stick by my side now matter what I'm going through:)

  8. I'm thankful for funny one-liners from the boys and a husband who will clean the bathroom when I have to work.

    That's just two on my very long list.

  9. I have my list on my blog today. But here is an extra one that should fit in somewhere on my list:

    I am so very thankful for you, Jeanette, and for all of the other bloggers who visit me. They are a great part of my joy. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  10. I am thankful that I am still usable for Him even today. :O)

  11. Hi Jen -

    Remember the old song, "The longer I serve Him, the sweeter He grows?" My theme over the last seven years is fastened on God's faithfulness.

    Susan :)

  12. I am thankful for my husband. He's been incredibly supportive over the last few weeks through some difficult times.

  13. I'm thankful for an amazing husband and two wonderful children who fill my world with their talents and keep me laughing even when I don't feel like it. I'm grateful for my friends who have encouraged me to keep going with my writing over the years, especially when I wanted to quit. I'm thankful I didn't quit, and I'm thankful to God for giving the gift of answered prayer when I needed it, and not before!
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Jeanette!

  14. Thankful for
    God/Jesus Christ/Faith/Salvation
    Great church
    Free country
    The holidays!

    And I hope your family has a great Thanksgiving.

  15. Oh, there is so much. The parents and siblings I was given, my wonderful husband and children, the church where I found a home. There are many more but those are pretty much at the top of my list.

  16. Jeanette:
    I am thankful for my salavation and for God's leading in my life. I'm thankful for my husband and my son. I'm thankful for my friends both in life and online. I'm thankful for the gift of laughter, it lightens my heart.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  17. I'm thankful for Romans 8:28 - "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  18. Oh, I LOVED reading everyone's praises!

    I thank God for friends, near and far.


  19. I am thankful for God's Love and His Mercies that are new every day.
    The wonderful man the Lord has given me to walk this Christian walk together. So far 52 years. Many more thing that I can't count.

  20. Kitties and restaurants--I knew we had a lot in common! I'm very thankful for my sweet (and healthy) family!

    Have a wonderful holiday!

  21. Hi Jen,
    I wish you and your family a very wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm sure there will be a lot of laughter, and special moments.

    God bless,
    Michele Katherine
