Thankful Thoughts - Janauary 12, 2017

I am thankful for realizing that there is no possession I own which is as valuable as the people who are part of my life. I like my things, especially my electronics, as much as the next person, but I would give them away in a moment if doing so could somehow end the suffering of people I love who are dealing with so much pain.  Things come and go in our lives, nothing lasts forever except love, which is God's gift to us.


  1. "The greatest of these is love." That's one of my favorites.

    1. Mine too, Mimi! "Love one another." It's that simple, and it works!

    2. I cannot say it any better than the two of you have. I am thankful for such great influences as yourselves in my daily life!!

    3. I too am so very thankful for the interactions we each share, the encouragement, the understanding, and the smiles!

    1. It is for me, Patricia. The older I become the less value I find in material objects. The people I love mean everything to me... and even those I don't know personally!

    1. Having family and/or friends who care about you is so much more valuable than anything to be found in a store. I feel sorry for people who are constantly searching to acquire more things because they think it will bring them happiness. It seldom does, and it could all be lost within a moment. Real love lasts forever, I am certain of that!
