Thankful Thursday

In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.
-- Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"T" is for THANKFUL...and today is "Thankful Thursday".

I am thankful for a loving, faithful wife. Laurie, you mean so much to me. You display a selfless, giving love for me each and every day. This love too often goes unnoticed and under-appreciated. You are an amazing mother and a wonderful partner. I think we both agree that it is hard to imagine how God could fill our lives with "good things" any more than He already has.

Ephesians 5:20 states, " thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ..."

What are you thankful for today? Have you stopped to thank God for all the "good things" in your life?


  1. Thanks, babe. Love you and am thankful for you, too!

  2. I am thankful for both of you guys. And, I really like Laurie's shirt!

  3. Hello, Bill. Thanks for the loving encouragement. Hope you are enjoying a blessed summer of service and worship at Word of Life and Pinebrook. So glad to hear that people are being reached for Christ at your church as well. You are a faithful laborer for Christ.
