Thankful for God’s Gifts Reflection

A faith-filled collection of posts about being thankful for God's precious gifts even through the most difficult timesThe opportunity to participate in the faith-filled blog hop, Thankful for God’s Gifts, greatly blessed me. First, being able to write my own story of grief and how I found a way to be thankful helped me grow further in my relationship with God. Then, reading the incredible stories of each of the women who shared their own challenges and how they still found God’s grace and blessing was such an inspiration.

Now that Thanksgiving is past for this year, I’d love to share the entire list of posts with each of you so that together we can remember our thankfulness throughout the rest of this year and on. I pray that you are as blessed and inspired by these posts as I:
