Blog Blessings!!!! - (AKA - Blog Candy)

I am offering up some super yummy blog blessings! I have an extra set of the Labels One Nesties to give away. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought it would be fitting for you to share with me what you are most Thankful for.

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling my what you are most Thankful for. You have until Thursday, November 20, 2008 to leave me a comment. (Please only one comment per person.) Edit: I will draw the winner on Friday, November 21, 2008. - BLOG CANDY OFFICALLY CLOSED.

Thankfulness! I was reading the Bible during my lunch hour at work. I came across a few scriptures in Psalm.

"Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare." Psalm 75:1

"It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy loving kindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night." Psalm 92:1-2

The Word is good! I am so very thankful to God for His never ending love and mercy that surrounds us each and every day! God has blessed me with two beautiful boys that are full of life and adventure....my heart is overwhelmed with praise and thanksgiving to God!!! I am truly blessed beyond measure!!!

I am also thankful for each of you! Your comments and emails that you send me always uplift and encourage me. I say that is a blessing from God! So, Thank You!!!

I hope you have a wonderful night!

Many Blessings!!!!!

Mary

Wow, am I the first one to leave a comment? That's a first!

I'm most thankful for is my family & friends! They are my support system and we are all there for each other when needed. I know that when I have my 1st baby in April it will be welcomed with open arms & is already well loved.

Thanks!

Like others, my family is what I am first and foremost thankful for. However, this year, I am particularly thankful for the great group of moms I have become friends w/ through local MOPs groups. Where I am from we dont have those sorts of groups offered to us, but since we moved to Illinois, I've been blessed w/ many great friendships through such groups.
Thanks SO much for sharing!!

I am very thankful for my husband who puts up with me and supports my many hobbies happily. I am very thankful for my son for without him I may not have turned my life around but above all...I can never express how thankful for the Lord above I am because if it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have the blessings in my life that I have today. I am also very blessed and thankful for the friends I have that give me joy every day by just being my friend.

I'm most thankful for my loving giving family. While going through quite a few hardships this year with my daughter being in a real bad car accident and having three small children that needed tending and through there loving kindness I've been able to take the time off from work to care for them. With out them my grandchildren would of surely been shifted from place to place instead of being cared for in their own home. I know alot of people will say their family but I feel truly blessed by mine in these times of economic hardships to continually dig deeper so I can stay and care for them is the true meaning of family love.

I have so much to be thankful for...but why is it so easy to dwell on the negative things in life rather than focus on all of the wonderful things we have. Foremost, I am thankful to know a loving God.

Hello. Thank you for this opportunity. At this time I am mostly thankful for my husband. He's always there for me, and though my body has pulled some big fits over the last several years, he's stood by me through it all, being a solid rock of support and encouragement. I really don't know what I'd do without him.

Bless you.

I have so many things to be thankful for...my family, my friends, and my faith. This year I am most thankful for my healthy and beautiful granddaughter. My daughter was taking prescription medication and did not know she was pregnant. This medication has been linked to severe birth defects. Our family spent 7 months afraid and worried. We were truly blessed and thankful when she was born healthy. She is our greatest joy.
