Amen. Whether it's beautiful day (like today in the Dallas area) or an impressive supercell , He's displaying His greatness.

i thought you would never ask.
i did not hit the dog last night. when i dragged him out of the street he was still breathing.
the car in front of me hit him and i passed over him, albeheit tore off my plastic underskirt.
i gave the owner my card and expressed my sorrow and asked to help in any way.
the car is being repaired now.
the wheels did not touch him. i did no evil.
thank you god.
i love dogs.
a great line from never ending story
the giant the rock biter. sitting on the seaside looking at his hands repeating over and over to himself.
these are good hands strong hands
but i let the nothing come and take my friends right out of them
(thank you god this did not happen)

Thank you God when I blow it and repent that you forgive me over and over and over and over. We will never have this all figured out but you knew that. I'm thankful because of what Christ did on the Cross I will be in Heaven with you forever. Please make me thankful for that every day.

I'm thankful for my beautiful 6 mo. old twins, my partner and the life we've built over the past 13 years, our home, and that our jobs are currently safe. I'm thankful that I don't live in a country where I'm imprisoned or killed for being gay and that I live in a country where it's possible for me to become a parent.

Oh yeah, I'm thankful that it looks like Obama will be our next president

I'm thankful that mom is resting in the arms of Jesus, and I will get to see her again. I'm thankful for meeting a lot of wonderful people here on this forum that truly loves God. I'm thankful that I'm healthy and my children are safe. I'm especially thankful that Jesus has chosen me, for without him, I would have been lost. God bless you all.

I'm thankful that God doesn't treat us according to what our sins deserve, be that a lack of humility, worrying about what we will eat or drink or about financial futures. This country has been so blessed by a patient God who has every right to cast us away from his favor because of the prideful who live immorally, aborts her children and calls good .. evil and evil .. good.

I'm still thankful that God sends the "rain" on the evil and the good, that if God is to be compared to that I'm but just a dirty rage.

I'm thankful that with all the evil influences so prevalent in the different media's in our country that his word is still being proclaimed, being welcomed and many leaving their sinful choices to follow Jesus.

I'm thankful that my children are protected by God, physically and spiritually.

I'm thankful that if I'm persecuted because of the name of Jesus, that it will be better than getting praise from the devil.

I'm thankful that whoever wins the election, my happiness and hope isn't based on who wins, but who has already won the victory over sin, death and the devil.

I'm thankful that if Obama doesn't win that there are many other countries where socialism exist where you can move to.

I am thankful that God is our mighty fortress, a refuge from the darkness of sin, the world, and Satan. And His love and mercy keeps us enduring to the end.
That He said, He would never leave us nor forsake us. And that He gave us the Comforter His Holy Spirit in Jesus name...to keep us in all His ways. To honor and obey Him with a heart that He has cleansed, sealed, and sanctified, so that our lips can praise His Holy name.

For without Him we are nothing. It is because of Him, we live and move and have our being.
That when I wake He is there, when I lie down He is there, that no matter wherever I go He is there....He is my shelter from the storms of life!

I am thankful that in Him, He has given the love, wisdom, capability with the earthly things...my family, home, job, finances, that He has ordain in and for my life...

But the greatest and best of all.... I am thankful, He is my God, Lord and Savior today, yesterday and for all my tomorrows!!!

I'm thankful that God never sleeps or slumbers...He never looks down and thinks "oh no I was napping and look what happened to driftwoodpoint!!!" He knows our situations and is a loving father to us. I love that the hairs on my head are numbered and that he knows all the days in my life before there was yet one...it makes me feel safe that God our father is in charge and has His plan in motion.

This is a great thread....

The Lord... I am thankful for two very healthy kids....a brilliant and hard woking husband who provides for his family and gives with his whole heart....and extended family who bends over backwards to make sure my husband and I have time for ourselves and my kids are "spoiled" (not in a bad way- but in a loving way)...a great education to fall back on when I need to go back to work and the blessing that I am able to stay home with my kids as they are still young.... a lovely home I never imagined ever owning.... and more love than I could have ever hope for.....the list could go on and on... but I will leave room for others....
