Sometimes we forget to express our praise and we know that the scriptures say that if we don't the rocks will cry out. 

Here is a place to do just that.  Let our voices be heard!


Give thanks to the Lord because he is good,  because his mercy endures forever.             Psalms 118:1 (GW)

I will start off:

I praise God for all of the many blessings that He has given me.  My husband, home and the job I have now, secretary at my church.  I thank Him too for the ladies that I teach each Sunday morning and that He always helps me through because I definitely need His guidance for that.

I am also glad to have found this site.  It has really been fun!

I praise the Lord that He has brought me thru another month of bone treatments and the pain is over! Now, on to next month and so on until I am healed by His saving grace and merciful bounties. May God Bless all those who ask, in His name, Amen

What a fabulous thread!

Praise God for His beautiful creation--that spring is finally here!  I thank Him for continued good health for my family and that we have jobs that keep us fed and clothed.

Praise the Lord for restorative sleep.   Nothing like a good night's sleep to make life good.

I thank Him for the quiet, peaceful office that I get to be in each day and for the fact that I have a job.

I really thank HIm for the fact that He is still working on me and won't quit until I am face to face with Him.  He doesn't get irritated or annoyed when we don't get the 1st time or the 50th time.  Thanking Him for that grace that covers each one of us.

I praise God that all my cancer tests came back clear and I am still in remission! My low blood count is due to an iron deficiency and I only have to have iron infusions and NO chemo.

That's great Pat!  We have had a couple of people at church that have been told that they are also in remission.

Where do I even begin - I have so much to be thankful for.  A wonderful husband, great job, beautiful children, precious grand children, plenty of everything.  Praise the Lord for being healthy.  Youngest DDs bipolar is finally under control - this is a wonderful blessing. 

Thank you Lord for loving me!

I am thankful that I finally after knowing about this website signed up to trade books so I could get Christian books for my military troop support ministry.

I am thankful for the large plastic trash bag I just opened with about 60 pairs of new socks for the Girl Scouts Project Wouned Warrior Bags.

Yesterday a woman came in gave $13.00 to my husband. She said, I won a half and half drawing. I am giving you half for shipping care packages to the troops.

I am thankful for the house my landlord gave me for free(well, hey I was praying for more space) behind the ministry so we can have more room.

I am grateful for the troop ministry and that when God said, Who shall I send? I said, Here am I, send me .. . .and He did.

I am grateful that even though many people around me and me, are having a lot of problems with health, jobs, illness that I can see if for what it is. . .Oh, NO, She's outta bed. . .get thee behind me. . . .

I have been in a down mood this evening so I think I need to count my blessings:

My mom, who underwent surgery for rectal cancer in January, got a clean bill of health from her oncologist last week.   She has to go for a follow up colonoscopy in July though so keep her in your prayers.

My two year old son is talking up a storm, saying anything he wants to say.  Considering that his older brother was nearly mute at his age and required years of intensive speech therapy to talk, hearing all these things out of my younger son is absolutely wonderful. 

My children are both healthy and happy. 

My husband's colonoscopy (after the bad one my mom had) came back normal. 

Praise God!

I can't sing but I love to sing and I praise God for putting a song in my heart.  I'm in a difficult marriage but there is still so much to be thankful for.
