So Grateful

With every day that passes by, I become even more grateful to God for all the blessings in my life.  I try so hard to not take anything for granted.  Our health, our ability to be mobile, to experience God's constant hand of mercy upon us - it is all worthy of our praise because He has been so gracious to us.  I want you all to know how deeply I love Him, and how greatly I praise Him.  My verse this week is Jeremiah 17:14 - "Heal me and I will be healed, save me and I will be saved, for thou art my praise.   Praise His precious name for being SO good ALL the time.
