Thankful For My Everything!

November 26, 2013

Over the years I have discovered that there are a great amount of nuggets uncovered every day in our scripture reading, if we slow down and take the time to meditate on them. For instance, my morning reading today in Ezekiel had me on my knees in worship. I’m so thankful for my everything, because He has opened my eyes to all that He is doing for me and in my life.
