Reasons to Be Thankful



Have you counted your blessings, each one, recently

A place of reasonable shelter

Enough food to eat

Comfortable clothing

Warm water in which to  bathe

Cold water to drink

Transportation of one sort or another

Health enough to get around

Health professionals to help when in need

Insurance to  cover the cost of health


Teeth (real or atrifical) with which to chew

Good eyesight (sometimes correction glasses)

Reasonably clean air  to breathe


Family and friends (how truly precious)

Freedom of religion and speech (may it always be so)

Most importantly, salvation from sin and the hope of  Heaven.


Well, this is a start anyway.  Think of it there are truly so very many reasons for which to give thanks!

If you haven't list some of them ofr yourself today.
