Thankful Thursday


Things for which I give thanks today include:

That although my right thumb is almost unusable and sore, I am getting most things done that need doing.

That my mother (who is here with me since Sunday for a visit) has found an item which she had misplaced months ago. Praise the Lord! This had caused so much trouble.

Persons who sacrificed to insure that everyone has access to various civil liberties and opportunities.
I am grateful for those who sacrificed during The Civil Rights movement and the following women’s rights movement to bring our society to be sensitive to the needs of people who are different from ourselves
I am thankful also that the United States of America has reached the point of two historic firsts in national politics -- a woman and a African-American male are serious contenders for the nomination to the office of president of the United States. Of course, of first importance in deciding to vote, are the necessary qualifications of each candidate for carrying out the duties of President of the United States.

"It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord,
and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
To shew forth thy lovingkindnes in the morning,
and thy faithfulness every night."
Ps. 92:1-2.

First of all, I love this verse. As I was reaidng it , I recalled it in Greek.It is said toward the end of the Vespers. Thank you for reminding me.
Then, let me thank you for stopping by, and your meaningful post.

I am so sorry about your thumb. I hope it will heal soon. Glad though that you have your Mom around to help you out.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week.

Blessings to you and yours...

Your list reminded me to be thankful for our political candidates. It is too easy to be critical of them instead of seeing how they are paving the way for future generations.

I hope your thumb is better! I have chronic problems with my thumb too. It sometimes hurts from typing, we don't realize how much we use our thumbs until they hurt! Have you tried a Thumb Stabilizer? I use one when mine hurts. You can get them at Walgreen's, about $15.
