Thankful Thursdays

 

BrotherWord - Thanksgiving

Colossians 3:15-17 – And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

On a day full of things to be THANKFUL for, I am truly THANKFUL for life’s teaching moments and learning what is truly important.  I know and have seen, and honestly have been one of those people who thought happiness came through the pursuit of power, possessions, and people and did not realize that real happiness is only found within.  I am so THANKFUL on this Thanksgiving for an inner peace.   (more…)

Thankful Thursdays!

 
BrotherWord - Happy Thanksgiving

I’M THANKFUL
 
I’m THANKFUL for the son that rose to give me a brighter day,
For allowing the sun to set on what wasn’t for me so I could go on my way.
I’m THANKFUL for the cross he carried for me and the burdens He bared,
For giving me parents that not only taught structure and discipline, but also genuinely
cared.
I’m THANKFUL for my angels in Heaven and here on Earth,
For the ones who’ve recently entered my life and the ones that have protected me since
birth.
I’m THANKFUL for the seasons of love and the moments of hurt,
Through gain and loss, trials and tribulations, I’ve discovered my worth.
I’m THANKFUL for pain, struggle, and defeat,
It was the only way I learned to pull myself up and get back on my feet.
I’m THANKFUL for those that left a mark, good or bad,
Without that experience I wouldn’t be able to truly appreciate all that I have.
I’m THANKFUL that life never promised to be easy or fair,
But always provided a way to rise above the deepest despair.
I’m THANKFUL for another day, another chance, another opportunity,
Life is too short to wait, to swift to delay, and too precious to let the ills of the world
consume me.
I’m THANKFUL for my matriarch, my grandmother, who led the charge and showed
me the way,
She taught me as long as you follow God’s will, you will never be led astray.
I’m THANKFUL for those that questioned how I would or even if I should,
They fueled the fire that gave me the strength and courage to know that I could.
I’m THANKFUL for a sister’s love that surpasses any other example,
She is why I do what I do, my purpose personified, and her spirit I sample.
I’m THANKFUL for those that trust and believe I can be a source to better their lives,
The truth is, it’s already in you; we just have to work together to reach your ultimate
prize.
I’m THANKFUL for this day and to be able to express my gratitude and appreciation,
I’ve learned that life is not about what you see, but how you see it, and that’s my
greatest realization. ©
