I Am Thankful For ...

Taking the time to count our blessings helps put into perspective how much we have to be thankful for. Even in times of trial and sorrow, being thankful can help us see the light at the end of the tunnel and gives us strength to endure.

It's so easy to be thankful for the sunshine on a beautiful day when life is going well and everyone seems to be happy, healthy, and safe. But, we also need to remember to be thankful for the rain and the stormy clouds. After all, if the sky were always blue, eventually we'd forget to look up.

I am so thankful for miracles that happen every day. Little things let us know we have a loving Heavenly Father who is watching over us and is aware of our struggles, pain, fears, and sorrows. I am thankful for a loving and supportive family, both immediate and extended. I am thankful for a hard-working, talented, devoted, (and handsome!) husband who does everything he can to take care of his family. I am thankful for my beautiful children who teach me everyday the importance of service, patience, kindness, and love. I am thankful for wonderful friends and neighbors. I am thankful for my testimony.

Now it's your turn. What are you thankful for?
I Am Thankful

    I realize the following's above any other superfluous objective mosta U.S. mortals can conceive; however, while I didn't descend into Hell for my sins, I ascended till I saw the Celestial City from far away. Wanna heer bout it??

    Lemme fill-you-up withe efficacious epiphany, the avant-gardness and necessary wisdom to achieve Heaven, dear, if ya desire Heaven (many dont, preferring to stay 'laissez-faire' [i dont care] till death).

    If 'freedom lies in being bold' (Robert Frost), doesn't pushing-the-envelope also result in the Elysian Fields of Utopia? And if I'm the sower, we plant the Seed; if I'm an artist, we RITE the symphonies heard Upstairs ☆IF☆ we accept His lead withe orchestra...

    Wanna find-out the fax, Jak, in a wurld fulla the 'power of cowards'? Wanna wiseabove to help a poor 'Plethora Of Wurdz' [POW!] which are look'n for a new home in thy novelty?? Yay!

    Q: But [gulp] can anyone tell me the difference between K2/IQ? A: Nthn. In Heaven, we gitt'm both HA! Need a few more thots, ideers, wild wurdz (whoa, Nelly! easy, girl!) or ironclad iconoclasms?

    VERBUM SAT SAPIENTI (Latin: words to [the] wise): As an ex-writer of the sassy, savvy, schizophenia we all go thro in this lifelong demise, I wanna help U.S. git past the ping-pong, pop-cult-politixx, the whorizontal more!ass! we're in and wiseabove to 'in fin sine fin' (Latin: in [the] End without End -Saint Augustine).

    "This finite existence is only a test, son," God Almighty told me in my coma. "Far beyond thy earthly tempest you'll find tangible, corpulent eloquence". Lemme tella youse without d'New Joisey accent...

    I actually saw Seventh-Heaven when we died: you couldn't GET!! any moe curly, party-hardy-endorphins, low-hanging-fruit of the Celestial Paradise, extravagantly-surplus-lush Upstairs (awww! baby kitties, too!!) when my beautifull, brilliant, bombastic girly passed-away due to those wry, sardonic satires...

    "Those who are wise will shine as brightly as the expanse of the Heavens, and those who have instructed many in uprightousness as bright as stars for all eternity" -Daniel 12:3, NJB

    Here's also what the prolific, exquisite GODy sed: 'the more you shall honor Me, the more I shall bless you' -the Infant Jesus of Prague.
