  1. So many good things on this list!! I too am very thankful for the Holy Spirit. I'd be so lost without Him!!

    Speaking of the Holy Spirit, I was convicted just this morning about comparison. Now that's a sneaky one, isn't it? It seems so innocent to let the mind drift, but then the mind becomes the battlefield. It's a slippery slope after that.

    I too am thankful for internet friends! Thankful for you!
