Giving Thanks....where it belongs

I don't know about you, but I have a tendency to overlook the wonderful things that God does in my life. Oh, not the big, amazing things that you KNOW could have ONLY been divine in origin. ( I have had a couple of those). It's all those little things that I tend to pass off as coincidence. You know, like finding something that I needed when the budget was tight that is suddenly 50% off....or getting to work an overtime shift when I was short just a few dollars from making ends meet this time. I have a feeling that I pass those off too many times when really they are like a "kiss" from God. A heavenly hug sent down that says "hey sheryl, just wanted to let you know I'm here and thinking of you, here's a little gift"
Because I don't ever want to take God for granted, I decided today to make a book of remembrance. I call it "A Journal of the Amazing Things God Has Done In My Life" What better verse could I find then Psalm 98:1 "Oh sing a new song; for He has done marvelous things!" God has done some radical work in my life over the last couple of years. I'm so very grateful to Him for that. I enjoy a peace that I yearned for and now at last have. I hope on this Thanksgiving weekend you remembered to thank the One from whom all blessings flow. Thanks for dropping by and God bless!


  1. Amazing testimony and what a wonderful thought to create a special journal. Too many times, we forget all the amazing things God does for us. Thanks for sharing and I know you'll be getting a lot of those hugs from God -- you are of the right mind and spirit.

  2. Oh I need to make on of these. i have not made one for a long time and I am due. I could make these as christmas gifts for my DD and DDIL. Your journal cover is gorgeous.

    Thanks for sharing your creataion with us at SSCC.

  3. Your journal is beautiful! I love the colors that you chose and your layout is awesome!
    Thanks for sharing it with us at SSCC!

  4. What a fabulous idea. I made a thankfulness journal for my oldest DD just a little bit ago. I think these would make great gifts and this is a spirit nudge to me, I was just thinking the other day that I need to journal my thankfulness for all the little things. Very pretty creation. Thanks for participating in the SSCC this week.
