1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Good day everyone. I want to share with you a poem I wrote on November 22, 2007. I’m not a poet and had never written a poem before….but this day… I was so grateful to have survived cancer and I was feeling very thankful for life when I wrote this.

I cooked thanksgiving dinner and invited my family over. Before we ate our dinner…we prayed together like we always do…but afterwards I read this poem. It was very emotional for me and you know it…I cried and so did my family…..but they were tears of great thankfulness and joy. I pray my poem blesses you too.

A lot to Be Thankful For

I’m so thankful for Jesus all that he’s done for me
How He’s prepared a place in heaven, where I will spend eternity
He daily strengthens my mind, my body, and my soul
I would have fainted long ago, the truth be told

I’m thankful for my husband, my children, family and friends
I pray for grace, and mercy to be with them without end
I’m thankful for food, shelter, clothing and even a car
We’ve had several car accidents without even a scratch or a scar

There is one thing though, that I’m the most thankful for
A tremendous blessing that I just can’t ignore
God sent His only Son, to sacrifice His life for me
And without His gift of love, my soul would not be free

I’m also very thankful; God didn’t want me to be alone
He sent me the Holy Spirit, because I am His very own
Holy Spirit comforts and guides, He reveals your plans to me
Without His gentle leadings, I don’t know where I’d be

I ‘m really thankful for God blessing my life
and that, all is well with my soul
I want to share this good news with others
and that truly is my earthly goal

Message for today: Thank you Lord for all you’ve done for me!


I’m also very grateful for all my blog friends who follow my blogs.  I have so much joy getting up in the morning to write my blog.  Suffering with a chronic illness has been difficult….but since I’ve been blogging I feel a fresh anointing in my life.  If there was nobody reading my blogs I may have stopped writing them by now…I’m feel spurred on to keep writing from connecting with all of you.  So I want to take this time to say thank you for making this one of the most fulfilling times in my life.
