Multitude Monday

Thankfulness.

Even when it feels like things are crashing down around you.

Thankfulness.

When your heart doesn't feel it.

Thankfulness.

When you want to list your complaints.

It's not an easy task but perhaps that is why Hebrews 13:15 says, Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.

Today I'm thankful for Blessings #521-540

♥ Best friends.

  1. I have a phone call that I need to make, that I am dreading. A part of me breathed a little easier when I read that little thought of thankfulness that you had for yours. Perhaps in a little while I will feel as you do. Thanks for posting. I came through A Holy Experience.

  2. I loved your list today, especially after reading the comment BEFORE the list -- of wanting to make a list of compaints. That could be me today. Those jars of jam look just so yummy!!!! All I'd need is a loaf of fresh baked bread and I'd be in heaven!!!
