things I am most thankful for.....#4

I was reading my Aunts blog yesterday and she was talking about a comment my Mom had made about one of my posts not to long ago....(go here if you would like to read the post)


"Perhaps if you would take this one step further and realize that the only One we are really responsible to is... God...not humankind at all... then the rest comes much more naturally and easily. God is the One who ultimately forgives us and loves us despite our mistakes. When I finally got my head around that then living this life has been one of happiness despite my continuing to make lots of mistakes and be hurt from time to time. Life is such a blessing and not to be wasted for even a moment." Love, Mom

This brought me to the next thing on my list that I am most thankful for....my faith........I feel so blessed that I was brought up in a family that has tremendous faith...we were always taught how important it was to have it and if nothing else, that faith would get us through the most uncomfortable, hard times............now I know there have been times my faith has faltered, sometimes I will admit it is stronger than others...but it is always there.....it is always ultimately the thing I turn to in my darkest moments....believing that everything will turn out as it is supposed to because I have faith....

I am so fortunate to have people in my life that keep reminding me how important having faith and trusting in God really is!

I completely agree with you on this. God certainly holds His hand out to us when we need it, we just need faith to see it there.

great post, i was having a conversation about faith earlier actually, as long as we have faith, the help/hope/love is there for us...no faith, we won't see it....no brainer really lol!!!

I totally agree with you!!! Faith is so important in my family as well. Faith does not promise you to have a life with no obstacle.. But Faith will get you though the tougest time of you life... I love this post :)
