I would even have a little strife as I have learned to thank Him for that as well. I sit here thinking of anything I forgot to be grateful for…..I cannot think of anything yet as I pray a prayer that starts with ‘ today is the day the Lord has made, let us be glad and rejoice in it’. and from there I go on an on and on….:) Gratitude is one of my biggest prayers next to greeting this day with Love in my heart. I cannot stay irritated when I think about greeting the day with Love in my heart. Of course I may have to pray this more than once a day!!! Reply Lindsay on December 11, 2011 at 8:11 am Sadly… many would wake up with nothing. There were days that would i be one of them !! But i do try and thank him each day for something. Reply Ramona Orton on December 11, 2011 at 8:22 am What a wonderful question! It will definitely influence my prayers today. Reply Tonya on December 11, 2011 at 9:47 am An awesome question. I will be thinking of that when i pray. Sadly i would probably have woken with only family and horses. Which is great but i would be homeless naked and hungry. Deffinately something to think about. Reply laura on December 11, 2011 at 10:44 am Stacy, I’ve shared this with everyone I know! It is such a powerful message and one that we all need to be remined of everyday! Thanks for such an inspiring quote. Reply Claudia on December 11, 2011 at 10:50 am Definitely something to ponder. Reply Janet on December 11, 2011 at 11:44 am What I have is not much but it is all I need, The Lord has provided me with a wonderful view, a great support network, a warm place for the winter, my animal and my family. But most of all he has provided me with life. And today I am thankful just for that. Reply lynda kirkness on December 18, 2011 at 12:49 pm Janet —I have exactly the same comment!! We are soooo blessed!! I wake up from sleeping on my mattress on the floor and thank Father for the same things you have said. My daughter and I have a nice, warm apartment, 2 cats, friends and food. And we know that Jesus loves us. Reply Jessica on December 11, 2011 at 12:00 pm Wow, what a neat thought! It really shows me that i need to give thanks more often for the things God has blessed me with! Reply Phyllis Murdock on December 11, 2011 at 12:20 pm That is a powerful question! Thanks Stacy, I’m going to try to remember that every day. Reply Jodi on December 11, 2011 at 4:52 pm I would wake up naked and homeless, standing next to my horse. Seriously, I thank God for Yankee most days, but do forget to thank Him for everything else in my life. Reply Drucilla on December 12, 2011 at 1:50 am What a great post. I laughed so hard because I am afraid that before a friend posted on facebook the idea of putting what your grateful for each day during nov I would have been right there with you!! Reply Amanda Accordino on December 11, 2011 at 7:02 pm that’s why every night i thank God for EVERYTHING. my friends, family, pets, and even the people i don’t like. Reply Olivia on December 11, 2011 at 7:55 pm whoa…I would be a homeless person without even a scrap of food or clothing to my name, not to mention my wonderful horse…. I know I sound terrible, but I have to be honest. Yikes! Not my horse!!! Reply Naomi on December 18, 2011 at 8:49 pm I heard this on the radio (klove) a few weeks ago, and it was a wake up call to me too. I ask too much and forget to thank… Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
