Thankful Wife

Are you a thankful person?

 Do I make it a habit of thanking my husband for all the hard work and long hours he puts in to provide for us? Do I tell him thank you? Being thankful to him and expressing it, is a way we can be an encouragement to him when he’s had a long day!

This morning I was challenged with thankfulness as I was reading verses in the Bible about being thankful. This verse especially jumped out at me,

1Thess5-18

No matter what happens we are called to be thankful! Not just when everything is flying along smoothly, just the way I had it planned, but ‘no matter what happens’.

I have discovered that often if I am going through a hard time, later I can look back and thank God for that valley because it helped me become a better person!

Here’s a small list of things that I am thankful for this morning:

  • Jesus
  • My husband
  • My baby
  • our families
  • health
  • food
  • clothes
  • a house to live in
  • our church family

 

What are you thankful for today?

  1. Great encouragement and great list! Today I am thankful for a quiet night of relaxation last night, a heating pad for my sore neck, my family, my church and m&m cookies. 🙂
