Thankful for This Blogging Community

This week I am focusing on what I am thankful for. It isn’t so much because of the Thanksgiving Holiday is this month in the USA. It is to share something positive and to help me keep my focus on positive things during the CRAZY week.

In recent weeks, I have shared posts We Need to Protect The Children. It started with sharing about canceling Netflix due to the movie Cuties that exploits 11 year old girls. Last week I shared that I decided to donate what would have been my Netflix fee to Hero Bands. A person can donate a band to a child rescued from sex trafficking for only $10 or buy a band for themselves and $2 of the price will be donated to an organization that rescues children from sex slavery. Georgetta of journeythroughlifeministries.com read that post and ordered a Hero Band. I am so thankful a fellow blogger did so. Shout out to Georgetta.

I am thankful for my fellow bloggers especially the ones I interact with, who comment on my posts, whose posts I read, like and comment on. It is a blessing to read posts by fellow bloggers about various topics such as faith in Jesus, living with chronic illness, or life. Blogging has become a joyful part of my life.

I am thankful for the bloggers who join me on Saturday mornings for blogger chat in Zoom. We have had a baby shower in Zoom, have sung happy birthday off key to people, laughed, prayed together, and shared our faith. They are Temi, Vanessa, Alicia, Cheryl, Barb, Ruth, and Chuck. If you would like to join on a Saturday morning 10am EST USA, let me know.

Philippians 4:8 says- Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

The number 1 way is to focus on Jesus. Expressing thankfulness is also a good way to follow the teaching of Philippians 4:8.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Amen😊 We humans tend to forget the good things easily but obsess over the bad ones for a very long time. Thankfulness for even the littlest things really makes a difference. What i do in the morning almost everyday is think about one beautiful thing in my life that i’m thankful for and it truly blesses the rest of my day.
    Thank you for sharing brother.😊 Blessings

  2. I’m glad you posted about Hero Bands. Another blogger mentioned them, and I even checked out the website, but then forgot the name of the company. I plan to buy one for myself and donate one to a survivor. Thank you, brother. Blessings.

  3. It is easy to lose perspective on what is important. When we focus on Jesus, count our blessings and are thankful, we can find peace. Thanks for caring and sharing, brother Matt! 🤗

  4. Amen, We are thankful for the spirit of gratitude, and we join you to give thanks to God and the community God has given us through blogging. May God continue to bless and keep you for you are a blessing to many.

  5. The blogging community is wonderful. I haven’t been consistently active for quite some time, but my goal is to do so soon. This community has been a huge blessing in days gone by.

      1. I am doing good! I am so behind in my blog postings because I started back teaching one day a week and I was busy finalizing a journal I put together “30-Day Financial Fitness Journal.” I will promote it as an e-journal and paperback.😊

        Prayerfully, I will get back on schedule next week.
