Thankful Thursday 3/31/11

Well, it's "Thankful Thursday" here at The Frugal Family Life, so I wanted to take just a little time to share with you all what I'm thankful for today.
Each and every day I should be thankful.  I should be thankful for every blessing that God has given me, but you know what?  More times than not, I’m ungrateful.  I take for granted all the blessings that He has provided for me and for my family.  There are SO many things that I should be thankful for daily, but it’s so much easier to see the things that I don’t have.  It’s so much easier to get caught up in the mundane tasks of life and to become so self absorbed that I don’t even take the time to think about everything God has done for me.  He has blessed me abundantly.  I don’t want to be desensitized to the overwhelming love of God.  I don’t want to forget the sacrifice Jesus made for ME.  I don’t want to blindly go day to day thinking about what I need to get done, or what I want.  Instead, I want to saturate my days with thankfulness to my Father for what He has done for my life.  I want to openly give Him thanks for giving me LIFE.  Eternal Life.  I’m not saying at all that I’m going to be able to do this all of the time, because I’m human.  We all get caught up in ourselves, but I want to do a much better job of being thankful to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Not only for giving His life for me (which is the most important thing), but also for the things He continues to do to make my life on earth more enjoyable.  He has provided me with the BEST husband I could ever as for, two beautiful daughters that I can’t imagine life without, wonderful, helpful family, a house, vehicles, and basically He just continues to meet EVERY single need.  So, thank you Lord, for overlooking my human flaws, forgiving me of all my sins, and providing me with the Best Freebie Ever—salvation!

Well, that's enough about me.  What are YOU thankful for on this "Thankful Thursday?"
