the one thing I am most grateful for...

All throughout this month I've joined in with Brenda and others to post a daily post on gratitude for Brenda's Gratitude Challenge.   Today I am posting the one thing that I am truly the most grateful for... eternal life through Jesus Christ!

I had the privilege of attending a funeral today for a man I never met.  However, I've met his legacy through his son and daughter-in-law, his grandchildren, and his great grandchildren.  I'm here to tell you, his legacy is rich!

During the service today, the minister read Jesus' words in John 11:25-26...
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life;
he who believes in Me will live even if he dies,
and everyone who lives and believes in Me
will never die.  Do you believe this?"

YES!  Yes, I believe this!  Praise God I do!  Today's message was a reminder to me of how much I have to be grateful for... I have all of eternity with HIM!  

...everything else pales in comparison to this!


  1. All of our hope, our faith, our lives rest on the saving grace of our Savior.

    I'm sorry you had to attend a funeral, but I'm glad that you were able to see the rich legacy of the man.

  2. Beautiful thoughts, Heidi!

    Also enjoyed reading you "list.";)



Thank you for your kind words!
