What Are You Thankful For?


Thanksgiving.  It’s a wonderful time of the year!  Is there anyone who does not like the traditional Thanksgiving foods?  Or the cozy home atmosphere that is amplified by the crisp and cold weather?  Or the chance to gather with family and friends for fun and fellowship?

Sometimes in the midst of the excitement and preparation, we may forget about the ultimate reason for this special day … it is a day to give thanks because we are blessed far beyond what we could ever deserve or expect!

So we want to host a Thanksgiving challenge and see how many things we can come up with – things to be thankful for – before Thanksgiving Day.  We need your help!  Please leave a comment on this post and share what you’re thankful for.  There is no limit!

We look forward to seeing how many things we can come up with 🙂  Ready, set, and comment!

  1. I am thankful for my husband and his job. He is a good provider for his family. I am thankful for my children, I was blessed to have them and to be given the privilege to rear them in the admonition of Yahovah. I am thankful for the roof over my head, the clothing that I wear, the food that I eat, and my animals that keep me company. I am thankful for my extended family, my friends, and my church family as well. I am thankful for the Living Word of Yah…. I am thankful for good health, for electricity, for good running vehicles, for all my body parts, for our soldiers who fight for our freedoms, and for their wives/husbands who are here at home waiting faithfully for their return…. I am thankful that I still live in a free nation (for now) and that I have the freedom to post this comment…. And I am thankful for people like you, who take the time to write the SSM so that girls and women every where can learn how to become better daughters, sisters, mothers, wives, aunts, cousins, and servants. But most of all I am thankful for my salvation and the knowledge that I am a child of the one true King!!!!!

  2. I’m thankful for my parent’s 25 years of marriage (so far)! It’s definitely not something to take for granted.

  3. I have been reflecting on this very same thing for a while now. I will link my “thank you” post that I wrote right after Thanksgiving. I am so very thankful for my husband (his commitment to us) and for our 5 children. I feel incredibly blessed for my son Sam’s health. He is now 13, but as a young child was very sick. It has been a long road, but thankfully, we are in a much better place. He is the inspiration behind my blog and my writing (Sam’s Story – Change by a Child) by the way. Thank you for sharing your post. It is an added reminder for all of us to be mindful of all the things we have to truly be thankful for.
