Filled and Overflowing

I am filled to the brim and I must share. I don't care about bashing or what you have to say, I have to testify. 

I am a Christian and as such have an awesome savior in my life. What blessings I have been given. An incredible husband, a wonderful son and so much more.

For far too long I have griped about the things wrong and now I am here to testify about the great things in my life big and small. Maybe if we talk about the good things we will see past the bad.

Please share the good in your life too.

Here is my list.

  1. A wonderful Savior
  2. A sweet husband of 5 and 1/2 years
  3. A beautiful 8 month old boy
  4. My sister
  5. A job
  6. A roof over my head
  7. Food on my table to eat
  8. A car that takes me from one place to another
  9. Hot water for a shower
  10. Cold water to drink
  11. Coffee
  12. Chocolate
  13. Music
  14. Books (the bible especially)
  15. Pictures
  16. Lights
  17. Wii
  18. Sunshine
  19. My computer
  20. My Parents (they had me, without them I wouldn't be here)
  21. My In-laws (they had my husband, without them he wouldn't be here)

SO I had 21 and they are not necessarily in order, accept the first 3. 

What are you grateful for?

I sort of took your list MommaLaula and just modified it:

  1. My Lord & Savior; my faith - it's what keeps me going; along with this goes my church & Pastor Bob.
  2. My fantastic, loving & extremely hardworking hubby of 26 years, come March 29th
  3.  My 5 children & 17 grandchildren; 18th due in April
  4. Our small, but very comfortable home that we own - not any mortgage company or bank! Plus the 16 acres we also own.
  5. A new car that takes me from one place to another
  6. Plenty of food on my table to eat & enough to drink
  7. Coffee - got to have the coffee & french vanilla creamer!
  8. Our HD tvs
  9. Music - country!
  10. Books (the bible especially)
  11. Pictures & a good camera to take more
  12. Electricty to see
  13. Propane to keep the house warm & run the washer & dryer
  14. Sunshine; even though I'm not fond of it I'm also thankful for the rain & snow b/c I know God has a reason for them
  15. My computer - I love my computer!!
  16. My Parents (they had me, without them I wouldn't be here)
  17. My In-laws (they had my husband, without them he wouldn't be here)  ... Thankful for parents & in-laws, both were wonderful people, even though they are no longer with us.
  18. My stepmother - she is such a wonderful woman & I love her very much
  19. All my friends - without them I'd be lost!
  20. The rest of my family, aside from hubby, kids & grandkids. Family is everything and we have a large family.
  21. My hubby's job; it keeps the bills paid and allows me to be able to stay home.
