Thankful Thursday! On Valentine's Day

Today's reasons to rejoice and give thanks!

- The debts of all my sins have been paid in full by the precious blood of my Savior Redeemer. Hallelujah!

- My house is cozy and warm, when its only 0 degrees outside.

- I'm married to the love of my life and he brought home M&Ms and tulips for me last night since he has to work late tonight.

- Last nights snow made everything look so clean and white this morning. Reminds me of how Chist's blood washed us white as snow.
Isaiah 1:18 & Psalm 51:7

- I'm also thankful for the wonders of the internet. This community of blogging friends and the use of websites like I was able to do a bible search on the word LOVE and found 697 verses with the word LOVE in them (used the NIV version). Imagine the time it took someone to locate those verses before the internet ... we are blessed to type a ceratin word or phrase, then "click" and a whole list appears for us ... amazing! Here are just a few of my favorites from the list of verses containing the word LOVE

Deuteronomy 6:4-6
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

Numbers 14:18
The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion.

1 Chronicles 16:34
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Psalm 26:3
for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth.

Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Ephesians 4:15
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comments on my sweet Lindsey's simple prayer!

I love this list, but especially that you covered everything from your husband to -- which I happen to also think is for "Thankful Thursday" worthy!! :)

I love too! I use it a lot...although I'm trying to memorize more, I stink at remembering *where* the verse is. Biblegateway to the rescue :)

What a great list with a true sense of gratitude to the Lord. Thanks for stopping by my blog and grabbing the buttons to share the word, especially about Refresh!

How long have you been on bed rest? Will it be long term? I'll be praying for peace and patience!

I always think the same thing when I do a word search on the Bible online...I think it is so cool that we have that now available to us. Makes searches much quicker :)

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this past week.

Blessings to you and yours.
