A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings

My dear blogging friend, Judy, over at A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings, hosts this meme every Wednesday. Simply list five things (or a prayer or any thoughts) for which you are truly thankful this week. Voicing my thanks helps put my life in perspective & realize that, no matter how bad things might be, there is still MUCH good surrounding me.

1) I am thankful we are able to buy gifts for our children for Christmas.

I pray for those who struggle just to provide basic necessities for their children, yet alone gifts.

2) I am thankful for the house we live in.
I pray for those who are homeless or in danger of losing their homes.

3) I am thankful for the food we eat.
I pray for those who are unable to provide food for their families.

4) I am thankful for the warmth of our home during these cold days & nights.
I pray for those who are freezing & unable to find warmth.

5) I am thankful for my family & friends.
I pray for those who are alone or who have lost loved ones.

I copied your idea of prayers for those who need them in light of my blessings without realizing how similar our lists are! Well, you know what they say about great minds... :)

AMEN to your beautiful prayers!
I love this list of thanksgiving...it really IS such a blessing to be able to stay warm, isn't it? I'm so glad that God allows us to be friends! And, I'm glad that you join me in "counting our blessings" each week:)
