365 Days of God’s #Promises — Day 51 #365daysofGodspromises #faith #Godisgood


I’ve focused my blog this year on God’s promises and used photography and scripture to create visuals for you. These promises are things we can all be thankful for. Today, a friend and fellow author, Robin E. Mason, is guest appearing. She’s here to share about the things she is thankful for.

Welcome Robin!

A few weeks ago, I was reading another blog [incidentally written by another Robin] and she listed things in her life she is thankful for. Now, the way my brain works, I immediately was challenged to do the same. And the way my [ahem] discipline works, I did not immediately follow through.

Give thanks with a grateful heart, He tells us. And a merry, and I say, thankful heart, doeth good like a medicine! I know, I’ve taken a dose or two. Giving thanks places our focus on Him, rather than on ourselves, or even what we are thankful for. And when we keep Him in mind, we can hear His voice, we are sensitive to His nudge and direction. We feel His embrace. And maybe that’s the greatest thankful of all, His presence.

Here, for your benefit – because I have the benefit of these blessings every day – is my list:

Slide1

A – Amethyst; also Art

B – Bible, and Boldness

C – Cinnamon! and of course, Chocolate!
