Faithful Friday: Thankfulness!

No recipe this week... I need to take more pics when I make something new!

I may make more thankful Fridays, and transfer some of those ideas into Faithful Fridays--I'll have to see! Today I wanted to post something that made me stop and think this week, I found it on Pinterest here.

Isn't that just so true? We do need to be thankful for so many things-- taxes, tight clothes, sunshine, chores, walking, government (although election season is my least favorite time of year!), singing in church, hearing, laundry, alarms... so many things that we tend to grumble about when we really should be thankful. I hope this can change your attitude today, and make you think, as it caused me to!



Philippians 2:14-18

Do everything without grumbling or arguing,  so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain. But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.

Ephesians 5:4

Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.


1 Timothy 1:5-6

The purpose of my instruction is that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith. But some people have missed this whole point. They have turned away from these things and spend their time in meaningless discussions.

  2. I just did a Bible study yesterday that had us list our current bummers/challenges in a variety of areas of our lives and then write the special blessings that come in spite of the tough stuff. It was a good thing for my heart. :)

  3. Oh...thank you for that reminder. I am so guilty of feeling frustrated rather than grateful with little things like tons of laundry. Little by little it is getting better. I want to personally invite you to my second linky party called, RAW 10-minute Wednesdays. Opens @ 5 am on Wed. and closes on Thurs. late. There is a Christian prompt. Hope you can contribute if you want...no pressure. :)
