I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. Psalm 9:1 (ESV)
Yesterday was a BIG day.
Two of my absolute favorite souls had a birthday yesterday.
My mother! And my doggie!
Each day God urges us to give thanks. It was so easy yesterday!
Well my thanksgiving is simple. I give thanks for the two bright spirits in my life.
Honor your father and mother. Matthew 19:19 (NLT).
My mother has always been more like a best friend. A confidante. I can tell her anything. She has always stood by me and supported me with her whole soul.
She never stops believing in me and affirming my dreams – big and small.
And although the relationship is not perfect – no relationships are – it is a blessing. I am so thankful for her.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15 (ESV)
And my sweet little dog, Marley, has given unconditional love that only a dog can do.
His little face lights up every time I come home. And he follows me throughout the house. He is my little shadow.
My life would be so empty without his spirit.
Our animal companions are truly a blessing.
I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise. Psalm 138:1 (ESV)
I encourage you to take a moment out of the day to be thankful for the special souls God has put in our lives.
Wishing you hope, joy, and peace,
