What if....

I was wandering around Pinterest and found a picture of the following statement.

Seeing that made me stop and think about how much I take for granted.
I have a wonderful husband. Though I often thank him for what he does for me and tell him how much I love him, I sometime forget to thank God for him. I forget that without God, this man wouldn't be who he is. And I forget that without God, I would not even have life that I could enjoy walking through life with Mike as my companion, my best friend, my protector, my leader and my biggest supporter.
I have wonderful Children and Grandchildren who add joy to my life. I am blessed that they are all healthy and happy and safe. To loose them, just because I failed to thank God for them is unimaginable.
I have a beautiful home. Bigger and nicer than I need to be comfortable. Such a blessing to have space and a place to create. Nicer than most of the people who live in this world, many of whom don't even have a roof over their head.
I have food in my pantry. I can decide what I want to eat and eat as much as I want. All this in a world where many go to bed hungry and don't know where their next meal is coming from.
I could go on and on about how blessed I am.
I believe that God IS a God of blessings. He has made a way that we can be called His Children. That we can be come adopted into HIS family. He sent HIS son to take my place and yours, when it comes to paying our debt to sin. All I have to do is believe and then live a life to show my gratitude to Him by loving Him and Others around me.
So I begin this day, saying, "THANK YOU God for all my many blessings. And when the sun goes down tonight, may you be pleased with my thoughts, words, and deeds."
