Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Just reading your list calms me, slows me down, makes my heart happy. Thank you!

I read the book "One Thousand Gifts" and will be reading it again. I wonder how it would change me, to make a conscious effort every single day to be grateful for what God has brought into my life.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Marlene! I love how you keep reminding us to find ordinary things, every day, to be grateful for, not just on Thanksgiving! Hope you are surrounded by people you love this holiday.....

I so needed this today. Thank you for sharing...I was blue because not all of our family was together. But God has preserved us all, and kept us healthy -- perhaps soon we may all see each other again. Thank you, Marlene!

I have enjoyed all of your blessings posts. It is wonderful to find joy in the simple things. Your list always makes me appreciate some of the things I take for granted more. Thank you dear friend for making my world sweeter. Hugs, Lura
