Thankfulness is Something


of dawn...I love the sweet smell ......and I love Sunday Mornings!

When was the last time you gave Thanks for the Blessings in your life?  It doesn't have to be Thanksgiving Day in order for us to be thankful....What we should do is wake up each day full of excitement just knowing that there is a treasure hidden somewhere in our day...

I love these words:

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.....

                       Melody Beattie



We should let the truth to these words  sink way down into each of our hearts.  These are great words and they paint a pretty picture of Thankfulness. 

Craig Morgan sings a beautiful song:  "This Ain't Nothin'"

Each time I hear this song, I am so reminded of how life can be so unforgiving.  What counts is our gratitude and how willing we are to see good in everything....

This song is about a man who has seen many difficult times in his life....The loss of his father, the loss of his brother and friend, and the loss of his loving wife.  These losses were something to him but yet he was given the strength to endure them all.  When other tragedies come his way, he just smiles and says......"This Ain't Nothin'"

It is true....we all have those somethings in our life that brings sadness to our hearts, however, a heart full of gratitude is what our Heavenly Father loves......It is important for us to understand that God knows our hearts even in sad times and we should trust Him enough to say "Thank You Lord."

Be Thankful for the important people in your life.....Be thankful for your Salvation....Be thankful for each day.......



"This Ain't Nothin'"He was standing in the rubble of an old farmhouse outside Birmingham
When some on the scene reporter stuck a camera in the face of that old man
He said "tell the folks please mister, what are you gonna do
Now that this twister has taken all that's there to you"
The old man just smiled and said "boy let me tell you something, this ain't nothing"

He said I lost my daddy, when I was eight years old,
That cave-in at the Kincaid mine left a big old hole,
And I lost my baby brother, my best friend and my left hand
In a no win situation in a place called Vietnam
And last year I watched my loving wife, of fifty years waste away and die
And I held her hand til her heart of gold stopped pumping,
So this ain't nothin'

He said I learned at an early age,
There's things that matter and there's things that don't
So if you're waiting here for me to cry,
I hate to disappoint you boy, but I won't
Then he reached down in the rubble and picked up a photograph
Wiped the dirt off of it with the hand that he still had
He put it to his lips and said man she was something
But this ain't nothin'

He said I lost my daddy, when I was eight years old,
That cave-in at the Kincaid mine left a big old hole,
And I lost my baby brother, my best friend and my left hand
In a no win situation in a place called Vietnam
And last year I watched my loving wife, of fifty years waste away and die
We were holding hands when her heart of gold stopped pumping
So this ain't nothin'

This ain't nothin' time won't erase
And this ain't nothin' money can't replace
He said you sit and watch your loving wife fifty years fighting for her life
Then you hold her hand til her heart of gold stops pumping
Yeah boy that's something,
So this ain't nothin'
Yeah this ain't nothin'

Shug Sez.......

Blessed are those who can be Thankful for all things.....
