Thankful In Every Situation



The weeks just get busier and busier, and try as I will, I seem to always fail making time to post a blog entry. My apologies for the delays.

I want to focus my Thankful Thursday post on being thankful in situations where the frustrations tend to outweigh the accomplishments. We neglect to see the "light at the end of the tunnel", the "silver lining behind every dark cloud", the "glass being half-full" and all the positive aspects of a situation when we are confronted with obstacles. We forget that in all circumstances that life throws our way, God is near and is just waiting for us to let go off our worries, our doubts and fears. We forget that everything has an end, and that "this too, shall pass..".

I am thankful for every waking moment that i spend with my family, every free hour I have for myself to restore my mind and body, every available evening I have to see friends, every spare opportunity to watch my favorite TV show or DVD, every minute of sleep I get, every day I wake up feeling healthy and strong. Life is good -- we all just have to see the joys and reasons to be thankful in the dark as we do in the light. :-)

Happy weekend!

Chrixean - you are right. I have been weight down by sorrow and grief, by long hours at work, but too much work and not enough time to refuel...We do have to see the silver lining sometimes and rely on Him for strength.
Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart this week with us.

Blessings to you and yours.

whew! what a reminder?!!! i agree with every word that you say though sometimes when you're feeling down and blue, you tend to be blinded and forget that yeah... "this to shall pass!!!"

Indeed everything you said is true. But let us not forget that there are too many people who still forget to say thanks for what they have. They forget the very person who sacrifices for them.
Just passing by to say hello.
