1, Thessalonians. 5:18
King James Version (KJV) - "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

I hope you'll enjoy reading.

  1. I'm thankful for Laughter. The cheapest, holiest medicine.
  2. I'm thankful for the Gorgeous wish-berry/dandelions amongst vibrant, green grass!
  3. I'm thankful for the beautiful, bright-colored sky that God paints so wonderfully!
  4. I'm thankful for my four sisters that God gave me to laugh with, have fun with and share things with.
  5. I'm thankful for a Godly heritage and that my parents and Grandparents and Great-Grandma are saved.
  6. I'm thankful for my Church!
  7. I'm thankful for my cousins. They're so funny and they're my bestfriends.
  8. I'm thankful for my Aunt and Uncle. Auntie Beth ~ She is a lot of fun, hilarious, quirky, makes me laugh and a really great friend. Uncle Bryan ~ He is so sweet and a sincere friend. I can talk to him about anything and he listens and I'm just SO blessed with amazing family!
  9. I'm thankful for my friends. I don't always see them and most of them live far away and I only get to see in the Summertime. But when I do get to be around them they encourage me, uplift me, make me laugh and friends are just a blessing to have. Near and far, wherever you are, I love you.
  10. I'm thankful for Pinterest! hehe It is a lot of fun and it leads me to amazing good-reads online that help me learn more about Photography and other stuff. It's a nice "Get-away". 
  11. I'm thankful for Jewelry! It definitely can make the outfit!  
  12. I'm thankful for our Crookston Arena. My youth group loves to get together there on the weekends and we all go ice-skating or play hockey and I Love it!
  13. I'm thankful for my Dad. He makes me laugh and cheers me up and just a faithful friend and an anchor in my family. If I didn't have him in my life things would sure be messed up.
  14. I'm thankful for Summer Camps and Youth Conferences! They connect me to more preaching, singing, activities and Godly friendships that really do last a life-time.
  15. I'm thankful for the Men of God in my life. I have met MANY amazing men of God that inspire me to Keep going. They inspire me more than they know and I'm so thankful for y'all!
  16. I'm thankful for the ability to hear. I can hear laughter and people talking and the sound of rain or thunder, or friends talking or music and without that sense, life wouldn't be as I know it and I'm glad God blessed me with being able to hear.
  17. Besides hearing, I am also in love with seeing. Seeing friends, family, the skies, outdoors, pictures, colors, movies, people, places, life. I am SO thankful for my eyes. Can you imagine not being able to see. You couldn't see color. Life would be dull in a way. I am VERY thankful for my eyesight.
  18. I am thankful for birthdays! I mean birthdays are a celebration of life and life is amazing. Thinking about the Creator of life is phenomenal. Just can't wrap my mind around God creating us all. Birthdays are cool.
  19. I'm thankful for patterns. Prints and patterns, style and texture, I love it! If there was no pattern in things, a lot of things would be plain. I love argyle, polka-dots, squares, chevron, gingham, quatrefoil, lattice, trellis, & damask! These prints and patterns are so fun!
  20. I'm thankful for blogging. I can share thoughts, prayer requests, videos, & music with people I love and people I have yet to love. Thank you to all of my readers!
  21. I'm thankful for holidays. Each holiday has a wonderful feel to it. My 2 favorites would be 4th of July & Christmas of course. Celebrating Independence and Christ being sent for us. My brother has this sign in his bedroom that says, "Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you. Jesus Christ and the American soldier. One died for your soul and the other for your freedom." How true that is.
  22. I'm thankful for words. hehe Sounds funny, but words have life in them and they're special. I'm thankful for the ability to read and write. Those are so important.
  23. I'm thankful for shoes! hehe So many people around the world don't have shoes and they have hurt feet and I am thankful that God has blessed me with what I need. 
  24. I'm thankful for America. I'm thankful for all of my freedoms and for those brave men and women who have fought for my freedom. I hope to never take that for granted. 
  25. I'm thankful for funny things. The Bible says that a Merry Heart doeth good like a medicine and how true that is. Stay happy and you are healthy! So I'm thankful for funny things, jokes, pictures that make the heart smile.
  26. I'm thankful for the Word of God. It has been attacked so many a time. Leaders want it out, people don't want to follow it -but through facts and how it has been carried on for so long we can all agree that the Word of God is the Divine Book that God has sent to us.
  27. I'm thankful my Mom and Dad teach me the Bible. The scriptures are important and I don't think that any other kids in the world are taught the scripture on a Daily Basis how I am. They are amazing parents and I couldn't do anything without their encouragement and guidance. If the Bible were to be outlawed, I would know enough scripture, commands and promises from God's word to where I wouldn't be scrambling and freaking out.
    Psalm 119:11 King James Version (KJV) - "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee."
  28. I'm thankful for instruments. Music is Life! It's amazing. The tone, pitch, I mean, each instrument has it's own unique and beautiful sound! I love instruments and I'm thankful I can play some.
  29. I'm thankful for Cameras! They capture memories, people, places, adventures, moments that could otherwise be lost if not for a camera. Thank you, Alhazen! You probably would be SHOCKED of how far cameras have come since you first invented one.
  30. I'm thankful for God. The Creator, Redeemer, Saviour, My Father, and Faithful Friend. No words describe Him and what He means to me. I want to Live my life for Him and Serve Him the best I can. I Love the song, "Did I Mention" By The Rochester's. It talks about God's Love and how He's been faithful. I want to share it with you so here y'all go.
