Thankfulness Thursday Week 50 of 2014

Today is December 11th.

WOW!! I've posted 50 times this past year of things I am thankful for. It has been hard at times and truthfully I am usually not prepared. Does it show? I know it does. Today I am thankful for the friendships I have had over the years. There are a few women that I have known since elementary school that I still keep in contact with. We do not live near each other and do not get to see each other often but always exchange Christmas cards. Since we live in a city that is near an Air Force base there are several people that we send cards to every year like the lady who played the music for our wedding and the neighbors whose children I baby sat. Relationships are important that is why the Lord made us to have relationship with Him and others.

The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
Genesis 2:18

So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals.
But for Adam no suitable helper was found.
Genesis 2:20

This time of year is hard for many due to relationships that are broken or loss of a loved one. Hold on to your friends and family, forgive and above all else love.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 
1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Romans 12:10
