So Thankful!

Monday, July 11, 2011



Gratitude can change a heart...I am currently memorizing the book of James..."Consider it pure joy my brothers whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete not lacking anything." James 1:2-4

It boggles my mind to think that we can have "pure joy" in the face of trials and yet that is God's command.  I am working towards the pure joy and gratitude for those hard times in life. Here is my continuing list of joy...
