Reposting from 2010 “Remembering why I AM Thankful”

Why am I thankful? I am reposting this reminder a blast from the past in 2010 for why am I thankful and challenging all to remember why they are personally thankful as well. Keep that in your mind that you are blessed and highly favored. Even in the rough patches we can always find a reason to praise the Lord! “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” James 1:2-3 (NIV)
