    I am most grateful for the new life I have in Jesus. It is through the grace of God that I have so much else to be thankful for. Which is why I now live a life of THANKSliving.....

    So what are you grateful for???

    I am thankful for the Christ of God saving me, the Word of God, my wife, our children, our church, friends, and all the things He has given, including His faithfulness at all times, even in trials.

    I am also grateful about life. I always thank God for the gift and chance to live, even though I am not satisfied with material things in this world. I know that He will lead me throughout my life. I have never been bored by thanking Him daily.

    Be ye thankful (Col 3:15) In another place Paul said, " in everything give thanks: for this is the will of God concerning you" (1Thess 5:18) Being thankful is not being thankful because things could be worse. Being thankful is being thankful because I have learned in whatsoever state I am, there with to be content. (Phil 4:11)

    rd2..., I am thankful for BLACK FRIDAY.

    My wife and I saved 100% on Black Friday. We stayed home.

    Did you realize that Black Friday is the day folks trample all over each other and fight in the isles of department stores for "stuff"..., the day after Giving Thanks for all the "stuff" they already have?

    My wife and I don't have everything we want..., but we have everything we need. That, I am most thankful for.

    I am grateful for my family and frinds, and that I can keep making good choices in my adult life, that helps me to keep growing as a person.

    I HAVE TO WONDER HOW LONG BEFORE THE P.C. POLICE MAKE THE "Black" in "Black Friday" a racist slant or smear and like everything else in our society, it will be racially inflammatory to call it Black Friday??? Ninja

    I am thankful that not everyone on the forum spends their days finding my threads and comments only to give me a thumbs down "Dislike!" And I am most grateful for those who see the good in what I write and rate me fairly.

    Thankful for a lot of things, but uppermost in my mind at the moment is that although they're still mighty painful, my ribs are only bruised, and not broken.

    Also thankful for Jesus, my salvation, family, friends and a roof over my head. A job would make my thankfulness complete.

    :)

    Curious. Were the 102 negative ("dumb", "spelling", and "old") and 99 "thumbs down" ratings that you have given to this date fairly issued?

    Cheers.
