31 Days to Thankfullness

    It's Monday and the 1st of October.  This month I must be crazy thinking I can stay up with blogging for 31 days... 

    I think it is so important to remember the everyday things we are thankful for...  I know times are hard and lately I feel like that truck is about to run over me.  Except I know I have so much to be thankful for.  That I have a loving God that died for me.  I could live in way far off conditions...

 So today remember

1 Thessalonians 5:18     

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you

Happy Monday!!!!!
