Thankful Thursday

"And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labor, it is the gift of God."  Ecc. 3:13

"Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labor that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him:for it is his portion.
Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labor; this is the gift of God."
Ecc. 5:18-19

I bring these bible passages to you today because I have been busy this week outside..working diligently to get my storage building #1 painted in the hot summer sun!  I am almost completed with it and I have to say..after working some long hours in the heat, nothing is more gratifying than standing back and taking in something you've accomplished.  It truely is a gift of God to have the ability to rejoice in our labors.  I am so very thankful that I am able to do such a task..because there are many who are not able but wish that they could.  Be thankful today that your able to do the things you can do!!
