500. My thankful list

500 things for which I'm thankful....thanks to those of you who have read and gone on this journey with me. Of course I could count forever and pray it has now become a part of who I am. This journey of thankfulness I've been on has been good for my soul. There are many things I doubt, many things I question, but God's goodness in my life is not one of them. Much of my doubt comes from wondering if everyone could count 500 gifts and more. Why me, Lord? Why all these blessings? Then I remember His words...

"From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." Luke 12:48.

May I give all I'm asked to give out of these abundant blessings.

I have enjoyed this journey with you. It has been a blessing to see your life through thankful eyes, and you DO have MUCH for which to be thankful. I am thankful for you, and even though I have not written down my list, you have encouraged me to be aware of the amazing way God has showered me with his love and grace.
