My heart is so full this day. It should be everyday, I know. I confess it I don't take the time, like I have recently, to look at the blessings in my life and be thankful. In last Sunday's sermon I heard (though I knew...reminders are very good)that "unthankfulness is characteristic of unbelief." (thank you, Pat!) I don't want unthankfulness in my life. I want to remember everyday to be thankful. If I were to put my mind to it I would never run out of things to be thankful for, none of us would. Here are the words to a song that express my heart today and I hope everyday. You can hear a small portion of the song here (remember I don't know how to do links, sorry) (btw, I really recommend this couples music)

"My Heart Is Filled with Thankfulness"
Words and Music by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend
Copyright © 2003 Thankyou Music

My heart is filled with thankfulness
To Him who bore my pain;
Who plumbed the depths of my disgrace
And gave me life again;
Who crushed my curse of sinfulness
And clothed me in His light
And wrote His law of righteousness
With pow'r upon my heart.

My heart is filled with thankfulness
To Him who walks beside;
Who floods my weaknesses with strength
And causes fears to fly;
Whose ev'ry promise is enough
For ev'ry step I take,
Sustaining me with arms of love
And crowning me with grace.

My heart is filled with thankfulness
To him who reigns above,
Whose wisdom is my perfect peace,
Whose ev'ry thought is love.
For ev'ry day I have on earth
Is given by the King;
So I will give my life, my all,
To love and follow him.

I pray your Thanksgiving is truly that...a day of giving thanks, especially to the One who deserves all praise and thanks.

You must see these

Then you must go to Autumn and Dawn's blogs ( and ) (sorry don't know how to do the linking thing) and tell them how adorable their children are. I'm sorry I don't have any recent pictures of Erik and Hailey but they are adorable too :)
