Spend some time thinking of things that you are thankful for. Also think of the object of your thankfulness. Who are you thankful to? Thankfulness is a heart attitude of gratitude. Living with a thankful heart helps you feel joyful! Try it!
"It is good to give thanks to the LORD ... to declare Your lovingkindness in the morning and Your faithfulness by night." With a little effort, you can make Thanksgiving and every day a cherished family time devoted to thanking God for what He has done in your lives.
I (Karen) am thankful for:
- my husband
- my employees
- that we live in the USA
- clean water
- mercy, forgiveness, Jesus
- friends and neighbors
- the sweet noises a newborn baby makes
- my washing machine
- there are just too many things to write! This list could go on and on...
Thanksgiving Proclamation Issued by President George Washington, at the request of Congress, on October 3, 1789 By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.
Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and—Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:” Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favor, able interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted; for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us. And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech Him to pardon our national and other trangressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best. Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.
You clicked on the thankful link, a Cross or a fish, or the word God, ministry or faith, or a free book or free DVD link.
Perhaps you are curious as to why that the cross is there, or perhaps wonder just what that fish you see on some people's car bumpers is all about. Perhaps you wonder just what kind of "ministry" does a diaper business have? Perhaps you are a Christian and wonder if Karen at Green Mountain Diapers is a Christian, too. YES! I have accepted Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior. Green Mountain Diapers certainly would not be possible without the Lord in my life!
I feel that Green Mountain Diapers is a blessing from God, and I am very thankful for all He provides. 1Thessalonians 5:15 "Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances."
If you don't know Jesus as your Savior, find a Bible and read the gospel John. Pray and ask the Lord to open your heart to the truth. May the grace of the Lord be with you.
Ephesians 2:8 "For it is by grace that you have been saved through faith and it is not from yourselves, it is a gift from God - not by works so that no one can boast."
Jesus speaking: John 14:6 "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
Salvation is a marvelous gift. God is awesome! I have peace and joy in my life through faith that was not there at all before. I pray for all of you who read this that you will welcome Jesus into your heart through faith. God bless you my friend, and I will see you there.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.
FREE! The Bible
Paperback Bible, English Standard Version. This book is illegal in 52 countries. Aren't you curious by now? Read it for yourself. This isn't a book to be put on a shelf and never be opened. It looks and feels just like a regular paperback novel. It's comfortable to hold and easy to read. How will you know what the Bible actually says if you don't read it? While you nurse your baby, relax and read this good book. One per order. One per household.
If you are offended by the fact that we offer you the choice to get this free book, you need to ask yourself WHY are you offended. What are you afraid of? What if what it says is true?
What if my baby really isn't the result of random mutations of sludge over millions of years (where did the sludge come from anyhow?) What if the truth is that baby was designed by God and has meaning and purpose? Perhaps deep down you know that this isn't just any book. If it were just any book, then there would be no reason at all for you to be offended by our generosity in offering this. We buy these books. They are not free to us be we hope that you have the courage to actually read it. THEN you can judge it for yourself properly. But until you read it, you can't judge it. Spend 15 minutes and read the first few chapters of the book of John. Even just that small investment of time is worth it. There are also plenty of free downloads available and free Bible add downloads and free Bible websites if you are too afraid to actually own a Bible. There are many countries around the world where just owning this will get you jailed or killed. Apparently many governments around the world are terrified of it because they, too, understand that it is more than just any old book.
FREE DVD! Unlocking The Mystery of Life
From Illustra Media, this DVD is fascinating. It's entertaining and really gets you thinking, too. You see you baby, and baby is amazing. Neo-Darwinism cannot explain your baby's origin nor the complexity of biological life. This science film is shown in state-of-the-art animation, but you don't have to be a scientist to be wowed by this film. You'll learn some science facts about molecular machines that you may not have known before. This has aired on PBS stations around the country. It's a must-see to get you thinking about your life and your new baby's life. Go for it. You can't go wrong with free. Limit one per household.
Jesus is life (not religion).
