Thankful Thursday

Lately I have been focusing on what I am thankful for. When your life suddenly turns upside down, I recommend looking up and re-gaining perspective by looking for every thing the Lord sends into your life to bless you. Don't quit looking for His hand in your life, because it is there.

I already shared this week about our new family vehicle, which is a huge blessing and was totally placed into our hands by God. Yet God has been blessing me in other ways, as well.

A friend from church presented me with a lovely gift basket the other day. I was so blessed by her sweet thought. I think the Lord must have spoken to her heart, and I am so thankful she listened.

She packed it full of all sorts of goodies--things to encourage me and pamper me!
Yes, there were two sweater vests, a scarf and many boxes of teas!
 And more teas, a microwaveable wrap to relieve tension and headaches, some food goodies . . .
a DVD, a CD, and more!

I have had this gift basket for about two weeks now, and honestly, I must say that I will still be weeks trying out everything included! I so appreciate the great care and thoughtfulness my Christian friend took in selecting the items for me!

Has God blessed you lately?

    I agree that focusing on the things you are thankful for helps. It is why I started the meme originally. I needed to concentrate on what I was being blessed with by the Lord. It has truly made a difference in my life. Even when things seem dark and dreary in my life, I can still find a bright spot in recognizing the blessings the Lord has given to me.

    Your gift basket looks like so much fun! I am sure it has really brightened your days. It's great how the Lord can use others to make us smile, isn't it?
