Well, you’ve made it through another week. You may not have accomplished everything on your plate, but you came through reasonably unscathed. Now it’s time for some rest and relaxation, but before that, take a moment to thank God for your ability to get out of bed this morning. Thank Him for breathing the breath of life into your nostrils for another day. Thank Him for the sunshine that seeps through your window. Thank Him for this day of rest and replenishment. Thank Him for your provision. Thank Him for your health, strength and mind. In other words – give thanks!
We have so much to be thankful for, even beyond our own physical needs. We have been blessed with a direct line of communication with the Creator of the universe. The One who crafted us before we were born is available to us 24/7. Can you even imagine how cool that is – to be in an unencumbered relationship with God? No baggage, no requirements – except that we repent and believe that He has done the work we are unable to. Wow! I’d say that’s reason enough to be thankful.
Have a great Saturday!
As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension.
I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog.
I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ.
My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

Reblogged this on A Blog About Healing From PTSD and commented:
There are a lot of terrific blog posts in my WP reader this morning, nearly all of which are worthy of a reblog. But this post by Kathy Boecher is the best in my opinion, so here it is. Enjoy!

Thanks Linda. I had thought about posting something about the state of our nation, but I’m to get past that. Thus I chose to write some encouragement. Thanks for considering
