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'm thankful for the hope & promise of eternal salvation in God alone! With so many things going on in our country & world today, that faith in God's promises sometimes seems to be the only thing to help me carry on.

2) I'm thankful for my family's love & support! I am blessed beyond measure w/ an incredible family.

3) I'm thankful for little nudges & reminders from the Holy Spirit! I do struggle at times to be more aware of them, but when they do appear, there's no mistaking them.

4) I'm thankful for hugs & kisses from my Blessings! While feeling a bit down last night, The Saint gave me a big hug & kiss, then looked up at me w/ the sweetest smile, telling me that everything would be okay. How can I not feel better after that?!

5) I'm thankful for the healing powers of this meme each week! While it is tough at times to come up w/ five blessings, it's so worth it to help me realize that I truly am blessed in everything. Thank you, Judy, for hosting this each week!

I love your list. I agree with all of them. #4 - my adult children can still make me feel better with a hug!

A great list again. I love your holiday wall paper on the blog. I really don't know where I'd be with out warm winter clothes - or the Holy Spirit's promptings.
