Thankful Thursday

Today I am joining Rhondi for Thankful Thursday. Be sure to stop by and visit her blog and the other ladies that are sharing what they are thankful for today.

I have been sharing what I am thankful for since the first of the month until Christmas day. There are certainly more then 25 things I am thankful for, but I find that sometimes I may not always share what I am most grateful for.

Today I am thankful for books! Our family loves to read books. Ever since my children were small and learned to read, they have consumed many, many books.

I am thankful that we have the ability to read the written word. A book can be a companion or friend when you are lonely. It can be company when you are on a long journey. A book can give you insights and knowledge about things you don't know about. And books can bring truth or lies. The greatest work ever written was penned by man, but inspired by God. The Holy Bible is what I am most thankful for today.

Man has written many books, but the Bible has been passed down for generation after generation. Everything you ever need to know about life is written in the inspired Holy Word.

May your day be filled with the light of His Word.

I love the Bible too. It is always relevant and timely and so encouraging! I'm glad you joined in today.
Hugs, Rhondi

Hello, Jocelyn,
I, too, love to read. As a teacher, my greatest goal was to instill a love for reading in my students. The same is true with my children and grandchildren. I also love to read the Bible. I try to start every day with a devotional time. Thank you for sharing your "thankful thoughts" with us this month. Many blessings and love to you! Vicki
