Happy Thanksgiving

I am thankful that I serve a risen Saviour.
I am thankful that I am living, breathing and moving, on my own accord.
I am thankful for having a sound mind, and the ability to make sound decisions.
I am thankful for my health and strength.
I am thankful for the activity of my limbs; for eyes to see, ears to hear, legs to walk and a mouth to talk.
I am thankful that I am loved, I am blessed, I am protected, and I am redeemed.
I am thankful for unfailing love.
I am thankful for my family: my husband, children, grands and siblings.
I am thankful for my friends.
I am thankful for freedom.
I am thankful for the peace that surpasses all understanding.
I am thankful for joy unspeakable, and full of glory.
I am thankful that I can provide for myself.
I am thankful for food on my table, shelter and clothes on my back.
I am thankful for every kind act that has ever been extended to me.
I am thankful for you, too.


Comfort Zone

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I couldn’t fail; the same four walls and busy work were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before, but I stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.
I said it didn’t matter that I wasn’t doing much, I said I didn’t care for things like diamonds, furs and such.
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone, but deep inside me, I longed for something special of my own.
I couldn’t let my life go by just watching others win. So I held my breath, I stepped outside, and let the change begin.
I took a step and with it found strength I’d never felt before.
I kissed my comfort zone good-bye and closed and locked the door.
If you are in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out, remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
Greet your future with a smile, success is there for you!
