Thankful Thursday

Do you ever have days when you don't feel thankful? Or, you forget that you have much to be thankful for? I am having one of those days today. So, inspired by Persis, who shared her thankful thoughts this morning, I am going to be thankful, to remind me that God is faithful even on hard days.

I am thankful for the man my father is. No father is perfect, but I am thankful for mine. He was a hard worker and he sacrificed a lot for us. He was not a harsh father or harsh husband, and I am thankful for that.

I am thankful for my husband. He, too, is patient. He treats me well, and he supports my educational pursuits even if he doesn't find them as scintillating as I do.

I am thankful for fall truly arriving. There is something wrong with having a humidex reading in October.

I am thankful for my classes this semester. I'm thankful for my Greek prof, especially, because he gives regular quizzes and helpful exercises, and that is needed when you're learning a biblical language.

I am thankful for raspberry jam, soup in the freezer, and Yorkshire Gold tea.

All good things to be thankful for, Kim! It's still entirely too hot & humid to consider it Autumn here yet, but I'm thankful that it's coming (I pray!)
