  2. Amen! I agree— I’m so very thankful to God for all the blessings He sends— even those disguised as trials. I appreciate the (in)courage staff and writers for always providing us with a bit of encouragement and courage for the day to come. Mostly, I’m thankful for Jesus and His sacrifice, allowing me to enjoy the blessings of life here and the promise of Heaven. Have a wonderful day, because we serve a wonderful God!

  3. I’m grateful for family and friends who encourage and support me. I’m grateful for worship music and devotionals to inspire me to grow closer to God. I’m grateful for His creativity in every sunrise, the grains of sand, the placement of my son’s freckles, the curls of my daughter’s hair. I’m thankful that God is available to me through the sacrifice of Jesus. I’m grateful that I don’t have to be perfect because He is!

  4. Thank you Lord for all your blessings!!I am so grateful for family and friend and this this group of ladies that put out a devotion every morning. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!

  5. So true that thankfulness turns our thoughts away from endless sorrows or solutions for our problems we try to find alone – such a good reminder to start every day and every part of the day in thanking God for who He is and praising Him – He is in charge – He is working for us so that we experience that all things have to turn to the best for us (Romans ) –

    yeah – I know that and experienced it – and all the same in the challenge through new problems my first reaction is to deal with them as if God wouldn’t exist … so good that God doesn’t loose patience and helps me practice to say thank you in advance for His solution for my problem

  10. In Courage,

    Thank you for all the hard work you put into this website. Your words encourage women all over the world. I remember the beginning of this blog & have seen how it has grown over the years. May God continue to bless you all.

    Sure we have a day set aside to give thanks for ALL that God has blessed us with-But we should give thanks daily. Make a list of the many trials/tribulations Jesus walked you through & the tons of blessings you have. This reminds me of the song “Count Your Blessings ” Chorus: Count your blessings, name them one by one; Count your blessings, see what God hath done;
    Count your blessings, name them one by one; Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.

    I pray everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving!

    Blessings 🙂

  11. Dear Ladies,

    I’m also very thankful for you. The ones who put everything together and the writers. Many posts have touched my heart over the years and have been just what I needed on that day.

    I’m somewhat behind in reading all my emails, so this is a few weeks past your Thanksgiving celebrations. Mine are in October. 🙂 Mind you, any time is good to be thankful for all He has blessed us with in our lives.

    Shalom, Sandy
