Just A Few Things

Tonight I am writing a list of everything that I have to be thankful for. I have not been doing this like most of you have. Why? Well really...I.don't.know! But tonight I feel the need to do this because I think it will help to give me some perspective. When life starts to get to me I have a tendency to start going the wrong way in my thinking. I pull back and start putting up the walls. Not only do I start shutting out people but I also start shutting out GOD. So while I was sitting here tonight I realized I need to do something to stop the process. Writing a list of things I'm thankful for came to mind. Do you think it was GOD that put that in my thoughts? Most definitely it was! Will it be a long list or a short list? I don't know but it looks like I'm going to share it with you either way.

I'm thankful for...

A computer
Bear because he loves me no matter what!
My job.
Someplace to live.
That GOD allowed me to be able to buy the Camaro I always wanted.
Friends that GOD gives you to be a part of your life.
Ones that live close and others that I know on line.
Friends that are special because they love you and pray for you.
Family...good and bad.
Feelings...even when I don't like what I feel.
Tears...because sometimes they go with feelings.
JESUS because HE is changing me more...everyday!
JESUS because I am forgiven of my past.
JESUS because one day I will be in heaven with HIM.
The ability to love even though it hurts sometimes!

The order of this list is not by importance. It's in this order because sometimes it's hard for me to say important things.  Not important possession wise but by what's really important in life. I'm not going to change the order that I wrote this list but I will say this...

The LORD is at the top of my list. I love HIM and know that HE belongs at the top...always!

1 Peter 5:7

casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
