Today on my start page the "personalize your experience" question was: Do you have general issues with chronic pain" Yes/No

I was able to answer NO ...for the first time in decades!! Halleleujah!!! Praise God!!! I no longer have ANY chroic pain ... anywhere ... no arthritis, osteoarthritis - any "itis" - ha! SO THANKFUL AND GRATEFUL for God showing me the way to healing/restorative health through what I eat, how I treat my body ...and spirit!

So today I am thankful for God's healing ways/processes and thankful this question sparked my "mind" into remembering to be thankful and grateful!!!! Love you God! ((hugs))

I was walking this morning, chatting away to the Lord.
Being thankful for all I have.
Like the song goes count your blessings and name them one by one.

It's like a habit, it seems when I pray I am praying requests. mostly for others

anyway, I had to close my mind to asking and instead keep on thanking The Lord.
The Lord isn't my ATM of a request
he deserves time for just praise and songs to him

I am thankful for restoration in my life, especially overcoming medical issues
I was told I no longer have gerds or Acid Reflux, so DR shama who will do my surgery took me off those meds for it. He will wrap a piece of my stomach around a muscle to keep the acid from backing up. I was told that I don't a c-pap from my last test. I no longer have Valley Fever, no markers exist, a mystery to the DR but not me.I don't need infusions, I take a shot instead. Allergy shots no longer needed nor is the Zolar for my lungs.
overall my health has improved. This year fewer Doctors and fewer meds
so thankful for all I can do
so I too DJ am looking forward to 2019 for restoration in all areas of my life

Today I was washing/putting up the produce from the Farmers Market. A piece of lettuce dropped off and I picked it up and popped it in my mouth, started chewing. I thought "this doesn't taste that great (w/o other veggies, dressing, etc.)" then as I chewed it and started actually enjoying the flavor it occurred to me how fortunate/lucky I am to HAVE all this produce ...some people would be grateful for the lettuce leaf alone!!!! I have an ABUNDANCE of fruits and veggies like clockwork every Wednesday (and accessible in between days as well from garden, etc.).

Today I am thankful to REMEMBER how truly blessed we are - fresh water, abundance of food, everything I truly "need" to have a comfortable life. Thank You God for your provision/guidance/blessings!

trials are life and so is goodness

Kat - I read your post. I, too, am thankful for the comforts we have but while reading your post I actually "felt" (if you know what I mean) I am really thankful for the challenges I have had. I have grown so much from them. I have faith future challenges will provide the same capacity for thankfulness and growth.

I'm thankful that I am resisting the urge to eat the candy today.
Instead I had a protein one chocolate fudge bar for two smart points and an 80 cal dannon light and fit strawberry shortcake Greek yogurt. Much healthier and better choices.

Today I am thankful for the rain we are getting. Even though it is preventing and slowing down our work around here I appreciate the "benefits" of the rain. I know right now there are regions/areas in the world with too much rain and others with not enough. I pray for all those people and areas. I feel blessed and do not feel like complaining about the rain and yet more delays for us "personally" … I just am thankful for our blessings and praying for others to be blessed in the ways they most need/hope for.

Today I am grateful I'm finding the inner strength to NOT jump on the scales just to "see" if my weight is still going down. Need to make that a Personal Bright Line I'm thinking … to ONLY weigh in once/weekly. Do not want to go through the "scale emotional roller coaster" and open up to multiple weighing "addiction" again. I did that enough in the past - got out of it - do not need to return to it. Staying strong!

Today it is hot, humid and STEAMY … and cooking anything during those conditions - UGH! I am thankful however that I am learning to "just live with it" without agonizing over how I'd "rather it be". Learning acceptance! Nature and God have their ways … I am just thankful to be alive, blessed, and, after all … the sweating I go through each day is just removing toxins from my body and IF a breeze hits my sweaty body it becomes/acts as my "natural a/c" - ha!! I am blessed and a bit of discomfort with the weather is nothing for me to complain about.

Today I am thankful for this beautiful, awesome world God created for us to "grow up" in and for his patience in my "slow" growth! I'm grateful it's speeding up a bit lately as I become more receptive to God's way lieu of my own.

I am thankful today that my husband "paced" himself while helping out setting up for tonight's graduation party at our friend's restaurant … he helped with setting up the poles, tarps/tents, tables, lighting, etc. and he didn't over extend himself messing up his back again. It is a huge affair with lots to prepare - community, friends, family all helping - expecting 500 people, having 4 bands, all outdoors. Lots to do still...

Thankful Daisy is getting around as good as she is since going blind though it's sometimes hard to watch when she gets a little turned around or disoriented and runs into things. She's happy though and feeling so much better since I've started preparing all her food lieu of feeding her store-bought dog food...so we feel blessed and thankful she is doing as well as she is.

One thing I've noticed she does … she "navigates" her way around more confidently when she's close to the lavender, basil and mint growing around . She'll pick up her "speed" in coming back to the lanai when she's walking through the trails in between the herbs … on one side where there's just some ground cover and no herbs she sometimes gets turned around and you can tell she doesn't know which way to go. She kind of panics a bit it seems until she hears our voices guiding her. I want to plant more "herbal trails" for her to follow/navigate her way back to the lanai /motor home from all angles of the property.


Today I'm just thankful we still have Daisy - and she still has a good quality of life while adjusting to her blindness.

Right now our country is so polarized and the two parties can't or won't even consider working together much less showing any tolerance and civility. I'm thankful that our country has held up in even more dire situations and I think we will get past all this too.

President Trump has managed to do some things that are really good for the country and he has also managed to mess up and to let his tweets damage his message.

That is probably true of every president we have ever had...successes and failures.

I am thankful for the media

And that Trump Tweets, I do follow him. straight from the horse's mouth.I think his wife Melanie
has been treated unfairly in the press.No matter what policy trump put in place, The Democrats will find fault.
I am thankful for our president and will continue to pray for him. Also, I separate his policies from his personality. Like how he speaks to others.

Today I am grateful for how quiet it is and mostly just the sounds of nature around …

I agree Wanda - hoping our politicians can come up with comprehensive revision and plan but that's not happening today apparently. It can't be an easy task - our laws have become so convoluted - our parties are divided with each other and within party - I personally think it will be a miracle for our country to come out in decent shape in next few years.

How much does it frustrate me that congress passes laws and tells law enforcement not to enforce them? I hope that comprehensive immigration law revision is in our future soon but it looks like it is unlikely. At least I'm hearing that the bills to be voted on today have no chance of passing.

So glad that I am not sitting in the decision-makers chairs though!

I am so thankful prayers were heard and today President Trump signed an Executive Order ending the separating of children from families in the illegal immigration crisis. It was part of a law implemented by Democrats originally but was not a mandate that had to be followed - and never was until President Trump chose to. It didn't even have to be changed by a "vote" - the President had total power to do it or not and now has chosen not to. I don't know if he changed position because of Melania's influence, the American people speaking out (both Republican/Democrat), the world-wide criticism of allies, non-allies and even the Pope, or the feelings that this stance might impact winning the mid-term elections … just THANKFUL he changed his mind.

Now I hope/pray the 2300+ children can be reunited with their parents … and soon! I hope every single one can be reunited but will not be surprised if it isn't possible 100%. I don't trust the erratic "system" that was thrown together to do this.

I am thankful today
I have been on and off searching or a good
Christian team to join. Yesterday I felt like searching again since its been last year. I found a fairly new team, one I never saw before. The threads were so much like me. like one is called prayer walking.

anyway, I look at another thread it was about a divine appointment.I sent an email to the leader
about articles of faith. I was impressed. so I joined this morning. I feel I will fit right in .

Melania made the point that we have to follow the law … but hopefully do it with some "heart". Separating families was started under Democrats but not enforced/used till now. Matters not to me who started what in our government - only matters what "we" and the current administration in charge are doing about it now. It's a terrible tactic or attempt for any kind of "solution". I hope our government will come together and change this "cruel" law and make strides toward more effective ways to curtail illegal immigration lieu of terrorizing innocent children caught up in this horrible situation.

Today in news read of a couple who started a fund raising effort on Facebook yesterday to help raise legal funds for the families to use to help them get legal services to help locate/get their children back. Over 3 million was given yesterday. Thankful the people of this nation still have hearts and compassion even if our government does not!

Illegal immigration does need to be addressed and handled better by our country … but hopefully without creating more pain and hurt and creating another problem (what to do with thousands of children) which is also "costly" - not only in $$ but in permanent psychological damage to the children.

If our country can do this to innocent children I truly believe we have - as a country - lost our "soul". We're smarter than this - more capable than this - surely!

Separating families is terrible and we should find ways of keeping them together and returning them to their countries or ways to allow them to apply for immigration here. There is no way that they all need political asylum and we can't have wide open borders...look at the European countries that tried that but we do need a compassionate response to families.
We also need to remember that this is not only this administration's policy...it is a policy that was passed by a democratic congress and that has been in place all the way back to the Clinton administration. Seems the height of stupidity that congress has never corrected it but....

Good Grief I surely don't believe is a family separation of illegal immigration. These criminals must go !!! human trafficking, drugs cartel. My home state is California, and it's sad to see what has become of it. The Governor wants open borders and now it's a sanctuary state.
Who pays for all of this.
Wanda Its wonderful that Mal steps up to the Plate.
Today I am grateful to know I can be an overcomer. There is always a hill to climb. But I know I am not alone and serve a never-failing God

I am thankful today to read how Melania Trump and Laura Bush, among others, are speaking out against the horrible action of separating children from their parents in the immigration fiasco on our borders. I find affinity with their feelings - this is not what our country has been or should be. I pray this administration finds "better ways" to handle the illegal immigration situation … with - as Melania stated - with "heart". My heart is broken for those poor children and families! I find it hard to believe my country has done this/is doing this. It's a nightmare.

My husband is scrambling to get yard work done before company arrives. I don't mind that he is mowing but I hate that he is working in the flower beds which have been MY responsibility since he started growing his big vegetable garden for the hungry. I just can do it right now so he has stepped up to the plate for me........I am so grateful for that man...for so many reasons!

I am thankful for all my blessings each and every day … there are sooooo many … I am grateful for simple things, the hard lessons (that's where I've had the most growth!), a great husband, and simply my breath I wake up each day! Life is not perfect … but it sure is good!

The bible says to be thankful in all things. Today I'm trying to be thankful for back pain and sciatica...the positive in that....I can stop procrastinating about gardening and say, "I just can't do it until I'm better" then go back to my good book.

Kat, when is the surgery? I remember when he had a heart attack; this must be connected to that event. You have always said that he is a strong guy; I know he will fight to get healthy and I'm praying for Scott, you, and all the family.

I feel like DJ; we do learn from the people who come into our lives whether is positive or negative we still learn and I pray that they do also.

I'm so thankful for the people, friends, family, and strangers that come into my life.

Just feeling so thankful for my "reconnection" spiritually this year and continually growing stronger in my faith ... what a long time I wandered about - disconnected - decades and decades! Feeling truly blessed. Something I read this morning:

If they remember me in their heart,
I remember them within my heart,
If they come toward me walking,
I come toward them running.

Thankful for how much more "quiet" we have in the neighborhood since our neighbors moved. They were good people - and friends - just noisy - ha! We will enjoy the sounds of nature more now... mostly uninterrupted. But thankful for the opportunity it gave me to "practice" not letting outside things (such as neighbor's noise) rule my emotions/reactions too much. Got a lot of practice - ha!

Thankful always for "life" and things/ways I can learn from it lieu of being annoyed/frustrated with it. Getting there...

Thankful our island has such good emergency response procedures in place and they act quickly to help people in disasters and the communities as well as individuals are so supportive too always "right there" to assist! Thankful I can rest in peace knowing whatever happens in the world by nature and/or man it is not in our hands but God's that things are held but can be grateful the "best" in people has the opportunity to shine through such!

Thankful today the EU banned the use of neonicotinoids, the world’s most widely used insecticide, from all fields due to the serious danger they pose to bees. If the world does not protect the bee population, we will lose our bees and then our food! Now praying our country will join, follow suit and step up it's environmental protective measures and bans ... contrary to it's recent backwards movement in this regard!
