Give Thanks with a grateful heart
Friday Five: Giving Thanks
Songbird said "It's that time of year.
In the U.S., college students will be on their way home, traffic on the highways will be at its highest point, cooking and baking will ensue.
But before the gorging and napping begins, let's take a moment to give thanks.
Please tell us five things or people for which you are thankful this year. "
I am so grateful for my husband Bob, my daughters Katy and Kara, and my son Zach. And I include in the rest of those I am grateful for is my family and friends. And I am especially grateful for my revgalblogpals. And I am grateful for my parishioners. Now my Katy would say,"And mommy are your thankful for yourself, and I would say yes." Finally I am grateful for God.
Bonus: Praise Songs or Hymns that express thanksgiving that I like;
"Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart"
"He has Made Me Glad"
"Now Thank We All Our God"
"God, Your Blessings Overflow" (a new hymn by Carolyn Winfrey Gillette)
