One person that you always hear me mention is God.

As I rolled out of bed this morning, jumped into some clothes, conversed with Incog about the “color” of his shirt, grabbed my Coach purse, looked to Incog to point me in the direction of the keys to my Brand New Lexus, flew downstairs behind Incog, and got in the front seat of my brand new car, and answered the talking lady who now exists in my brand new car, I realized something…

Only by the grace of God was I able to do all of the things I did this morning. Only by the grace of God was I able to even WAKE UP this morning.

Now you all know I’m not the preachy type, but something has to be said for a God who HEARS when you pray and RESPONDS when you pray.

I have so many things that I’m thankful for this year, I dont even know where to begin. I guess I’ll just start by saying:

Thank you for waking me up this morning, God. Thank you for loving me, God. Thank you for my mom and family, God. Thank you for Incog, God. Thank you for my true friends, God. Thank you for my job, my car, and everything that I have been blessed with, God.

I probably wont post again before Thanksgiving. And you all know that I’ll probably come back with a bazillion photos, but…

what are YOU thankful for?

Have a blessed Tuesday and Wednesday ya’ll…

    I am thankful for my family and friends who support me thru everything. I am thankful for my loving husband.
    I am thankful for all of the trials and tribulations I have been thru this past year. It has made me a stronger woman. I am thankful to be alive today, even if it is my last. :cloud9:

    Wonderful post. I say all the time, yes I enjoy the designer but without God it wouldn’t be worth it. He gets all the glory in my book. I thank my son who made me want to be the best mom ever, my husband who puts up with me random bursts of ideas and my bestfriend who knows me seemingly better than anybody. Amazing is the only way I can describe how God put me together with the right people….

    I am thankful for life itself, and being able to be the person I am for my friends, with my friends, and being able to be with a mother that loves me and a boyfriend who does the same.

    Great post!

    Dear God, I’m so grateful for my family, for being alive, for my studies, for my best friends (these girls are like treasures, we’re like sisters), for my talents, for watching over me, for answering my prayers and teaching me lessons in ways I’d have never imagined, for the signs and messages you send to me, for loving me with my qualities and shortcomings, for all the blessings those I remember those I forget those I’m not even aware of, for your patience and understanding, for walking with me through my struggles, for everything!!!:heartbeat:

    And Courtney, thanks for stopping by my blog girl. :surprised:

    It IS because of God that we are where we are today and I’m so happy for everything I have. Sometimes it ‘s the little things that remind us that we aren’t in control of our lives, but it is God. And when we realize that, life is a lot easier to live. I hope you had a good thanksgiving!

    You know, I was just thinking to myself that I could easily sit around feeling sorry for myself for all that is no longer but there is so much more to be thankful for. It is our choice on what we choose to focus on…. Your selection is on point…I have either been listening to the same songs or they have been drifting though my head lately. That Ray J song is pretty…my first time hearing it.:thumbsup:
