All I can say is wow, what a year!
Everyone writes inspiration this time of year, a time of reflection. I try to come up with inspiration once a week.
As I thought about what inspiration to write this week I came up with just one thought:
Today I’m thankful for my readers. The people who stop by with encouragement and leave thoughtful comments. The people who stop by and just read, finding something that helps change their day in a positive way. The people who are genuinely helpful and who share a glowing thank you. The people who give a warm smile at church, on the street, at the gym, or wherever else we happen to meet.
Something inspirational for this week?
How about simply two words:
I appreciate your continued support of my writing.
Or maybe in just one word…
Today I’m thankful. I’m thankful for #52. Let’s make #52 a keeper… filled with peace, joy, hope and love.
“Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song.
For the Lord is the great God,
the great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth,
and the mountain peaks belong to him.
The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.
Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;
for he is our God
and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care.” Psalm 95:1-7
What do you have to be thankful for today?
I am thankful for softly falling snow.
I am thankful for a community of friends, old and new, that wrap me in their encouragement and support.
I am thankful for my precious girls who teach me about mercy and unconditional love and forgiveness.
I am thankful for a spotless Savior that took on my spots as His own. So I can life free for Him.
so yeah. thankful for a lot.
Thanks, Chris, for just thinking’….and for makin’ me think, too.
I’m guessing it must be snowing there Christine?
I love the quiet whisper of falling snow… so soft and gentle!
Nice post, Chris. I’m thankful, too for Jesus adopting me in and for including my family and allowing me to be used by Him for His good purpose.
There’s a lot to be thankful for all the time. I’m thankful right now for what’s going to happen in 2012. 2011 was great, but I think this next year is going to be even better!
I love the sound of that one Loren, eager anticipation for the good things to come that God has in store… Holy Heavy Duty Goodness !!
