10 Things I Am Thankful For

1. God’s Word – the Bible. Daily I come to this living well, to drink a tall glass of living water and it is from this Living Well that Women Living Well was born.

2. A husband who prays.

3. Two beautiful children.

4. A godly heritage. (my dad, mom and grandmother.)

5. Sisters who challenge and inspire me (not pictured – brother in-laws who challenge and inspire me).

6. Cousins close by, who my children look up to as role models.
7. Godly friends (pic. 1 Angela pic.2 My Good Morning Girls group who email daily after their quiet times. pic.3 My Tuesday Morning Bible study group)

8. An abundance of laundry that says we have an abundance of clothes.
9. Dirty dishes that say our tummies are full.
10. Crumbs on the floor as evidence of our daily bread God has provided.

And if I could take a picture of all of you – I’d put it right here! I am SO thankful for all of my on-line friends and sisters in Christ. You, dear readers, have changed my life. I give thanks to God for all of you.

Have a FANTASTIC Turkey Day!

Walk with the King!
