100 Things I'm Thankful For, Part 4.

O Lord that lends me life,
Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.

~William Shakespeare

I am thankful for:

76. My in-laws.
77. My love of cooking.
76. My blog friends.
77. Chocolate.
78. Hope.
79. Pumpkins.
80. Books.
81. My husband's patience.
82. Snow.
83. My GR friends.
84. My childhood in Morgantown.
85. My honeymoon.
86. French fries.
87. Starbucks.
88. Scarves.
89. My dessert plate collection.
90. Music.
91. The amazing births of my children.
92. Christmas trees.
93. The mall.
94. God's faithful provision.
95. Plaid.
96. Carpet.
97. Swimming pools.
98. Nights out with my friends.
99. My love of writing.
100. Grace.

Of all of the things I'm thankful for in my life, all pale in comparison to the love of Christ, and the salvation I have through faith and trust in Jesus. His sacrifice on the cross is above all else the pillar of my life, and His grace is the most precious gift of all.

Jesus is the One I'm thankful to, for all of these things I'm thankful for.

If you are alone on this Thanksgiving day, or surrounded by people and still feeling empty and alone, and you happen upon this blog today, it is my prayer for you that you find your way to Jesus. His arms are waiting and His grace and love are yours today through faith in Christ's sacrifice for you on the cross.

May you know the promise and hope of a life with the One who loves you like no other ever could.

Happy Thanksgiving!
