Grateful? Yes I am!

Today I have been seeing posts from my friends enumerating all the things for which they are grateful. I have thought about it and there is nothing that I am NOT grateful for. My life is lived to honor God and although I am sure I miserably fail every day of my life, I start the day with prayers of thanksgiving and praise. However there are a few things I do want to say to you, my reader.

I am glad that God loves me and I am very happy and grateful for Lamentations 3:21-23 “This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” I also take advantage of Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” In the days in which we live there are many things to fear yet God said “Fear not, I am with you, be not dismayed for I am your God. “ Isaiah 41:10

I am grateful for those who read me and even more grateful for those of you who take the time to leave a comment or send a message via Facebook or email! You give me purpose and a daily goal of reaching out and helping in whatever small way I can from my kitchen table on my computer! Hearing from you absolutely makes my day! When you ask me to pray I do not take it lightly or pass it off, I pray for you and I ask God to give me something relevant for every day that I post so that your time is not wasted by clicking on my website, I only wish I knew who you all were!

I’ve been so excited for Christmas to come but Thanksgiving is coming on the 24th so let’s prepare, decorate, cook and I pray that we all have the very most blessed Thanksgiving we ever had, that we will make the most wonderful, warm memories and that when you lay your head on your pillow on that Thursday night, you will be satisfied that everything you did, whether you are the cook or the guy on the couch watching football, turned out just right!

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
