Photo Hunt - Thankful


Psalm 100:4-5

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him
and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations....

When I was thinking about the word "thankful," so many things came to mind: my husband, our families, our health, and on and on. When I sign off on a comment, I use the term, "blessings."
It's not just a phrase to me. It's my way of acknowledging how many blessings I have received and my desire to pass those blessings along - to those I care about.

The photo of the steeple was taken in Oklahoma this past August. It's my roots. My great grandfather was a pastor, my brother is a pastor and I was brought up in faith. So I
extend my desire for many blessings for you all....

Allahu Akhbar - God is Great. A sentiment shared by Muslims, Christians and so many other religious folks alike.

It's an absolutely beautiful picture and even more beautiful thoughts that go along with it. Sometimes it's too easy to forget all that we are blessed with.
