Thankful Tuesdays!

Today, on this Thankful Tuesday,  I am thankful, that God will never give us more than we can bear, and he is right there beside us, helping us, giving us strength, all we have to do is ask!

I am thankful for my health.

Yes I have some health issues, but I am able to control them with meds and exercise.  As does Gary. 

We all have our cross to bear, for some it is health issues, other have varied items, be they money, stress, or any number of other things.  Reach out to Him, He is there... willling to help...

We may not always know what it is he has in store for us, for we cannot even begin to comprehend the "larger picture" that he has in mind, for us, and for our lives.

Thankful Tuesdays!

This Thankful Tuesday, I am thankful for all the wonderful gifts God has given us collectively as his Children.  Some of us have gifts that are more easily identified than others, but each of us has one or more gifts that we can use to help others. 
Have you found your gift? Do you use it to praise God? 

How can you do more?

Help a neighbour, 

help a friend,

help a stranger,

help those in need,

be they near or far off in a distant country.

More so, have faith in yourself that you can help another.

Beauty in the Heart,
 Knows NO Language

Thankful Tuesdays

   Today I am thankful for my husband.  I have told you a little bit of my history, in a previous Thankful Tuesday posting, and I have shared my gratefulness for my family, however today, I wish to single out my Husband, Gary.

   His never ending love and support is such a change from my previous relationship.  He never ceases to amaze me.  Our partnership is built on never ending Love and mutual respect, kindness and thoughtfulness. 

   This is a poem I wrote for Gary:

I think of all the special ways
You show you care for me,
The loving way you are always there,
Has blessed our Family.

You always give your very best,
In everything you do,
And that is why, I thank the Lord,
He's Blessed my life with You!

He has over the past 4 years, written many for me as well, and I will share one with you.

Just after we met, we went to Niagara Falls for the day.  It is one of my favourite places in the world, to connect and commune with God.  A short while later, we were walking on the beach and I found a man's gold ring on the beach, it basically ended up on my bare big toe, as we walked along. 

The Untold Story

Washed upon the shore, for my love to discover enchantment and more.  This new beginning: the fallen of old, to the treasure of ageless gold, the beginning of a story untold. 
We sat along one of the wonders of the world, as the mist landed upon our face, granting such a peace.  We had found each other, and our love was not to cease. 
You my love are a gift from Heaven, granting me everlasting peace:  My angel was sent to love me, to share our responsibility to the lost.
I will cherish you, for our new beginning is as joyful as the sky is a radiant blue.  This new beginning is much a new existence to guide people back to the garden, when man and woman became one, for many to hear the Shadow of Truth, to deliver mankind to a love that always becomes...
You are the first woman, and my greatest strength, to love you and cherish you, for you.  I thank God for the gift found in the sand, for us to walk upon many shores to discover treasures greater than gold.
The storm has since passed and my princess will walk with me to the gate leading to Heaven’s door.  So walk with me, as we embrace to be witnessed by the human race.
So my love, each new beginning may in fact be the end of something more inspirational, only to discover in each other a new and exciting future. 
To start from here to hold each other so close, so dear, all we don’t know is the year.  Walk with me, and I’ll walk with you, and where we go, will ultimately be a new beginning.

This piece of driftwood was on the beach the day I found the gold ring in the sand.
So Today, on Thankful Tuesday, I Thank God for my Husband, Gary.  I love you!
