Thankful Hearts

 

Our blog today is about being thankful because we are blessed.  There's an old song that says "Count your blessings ... name them one by one ..."  Although we are aware of our blessings every day here at Life Options Clinic, during this week of Thanksgiving, we are purposefully setting aside a time to "count our blessings ... naming them one by one."

  1. Our wonderful staff here at the Clinic ... they are kind, compassionate, caring, dedicated ... they go the extra mile.  They love all who come through our doors, and it shows each and every day.
  2. Our fabulous volunteers ... they give sacrificially of their time and talents ... they are passionate about helping the families who come through our doors ... they do this by listening with great love and compassion.  Time and time again we hear this from those they have ministered to:  "I felt welcomed."  "I felt safe."  "I felt loved and understood."
  3. Our amazing clients ... they come to us and trust us with their lives ... their dreams, their fears, their struggles ... they become a part of our family.  And, we are so proud of each of them ... they work hard and want to succeed as moms and dads ... they have the desire to learn and grow ... they listen, they learn, they impact their families.  We cannot express how grateful we are to be a part of their life journey.
  4. Our great Board of Directors ... they support our work, helping us to grow our mission and vision.  They pray for us and guide us.  They care about what we do and participate in the ministry.  
  5. Our generous donors ... without our donors, we could not do all we do at Life Options Clinic.  They support the very work and mission that we have been called to do.  They do this through their finances, material donations, and prayers.  They bless us by entrusting us with what they have been blessed with.  Our heart's desire is to always be good stewards of all they have entrusted to us.
  6. Our local churches ... they uphold us and support us with such grace and generosity ... thank you is never enough to say to the pastors, staff, and congregations who also pour resources into the ministry of Life Options Clinic, but we do say "THANK YOU."
  7. Our community ... we are growing our presence in the Santa Rosa County community ... and we are grateful for the support we get from our Chamber of Commerce, local businesses, and individuals.  Truly, we are blessed.
  8. And last, but certainly not least ... We are grateful for the ONE who has made everything possible.  Our great God and Savior, Who teaches us daily how to love and minister to those He gives us ... Who is the ONE true Provider of all our resources here at Life Options Clinic.  

What are you thankful for today?  Give thanks with a grateful heart.  We certainly are!!!

1 Thessalonians 1:2-3 -- "We give thanks to God always for all of you, making mention of you in our prayers; constantly bearing in mind your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the presence of our God and Father."
