Day 54: I am thankful for God’s Love. I see and feel His Love all around me. In church this morning and at the candlelight service tonight, I could feel it wafting through the air. It could be seen in the smiles and in the eyes of everyone. It could be heard in the voices singing and praising His Name. I am thankful that I still have the freedom and opportunity to worship my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We need to speak up and fight for this right so that we don’t lose it!
Day 55: I am thankful for memories and that new memories can be made! It is wonderful to have family traditions, but it is also wonderful to start new traditions! Thank You God for all the old and precious traditions and memories and for the moments we share with loved ones! As we travel on this journey we call life, thank You for allowing us to indulge in our favorite traditions, foods, and fun times; however, please keep us ever mindful of our true purpose for being on this journey! Help us to live a life filled with You and Your Precious Son, Jesus!
Day 56: I am thankful for social media because it allows me to stay in contact with family and friends. Having taught for 30 years, I have sweet memories of my former students and many of their family members. It warms my heart to be able to see their precious families and hear about their successes in life. It also gives me the opportunity to pray for them when I hear about their misfortunes or illnesses. As a teacher, one feels a part of their lives even if the time was brief. I believe that we all are who we are because of all the people we have known. Everyone we come in contact with has an influence on the person we become! The most important relationship we can ever have is our relationship with our Heavenly Father! He is the greatest influence of all.
