Thankful Thursday,& 1000 Gifts

Thursday is the day to write about our thankful hearts. You'll find more thankful hearts here.
Today I am so thankful for the Word of God, For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul and spirit, joints and marrow, as it judges the thoughts and purposes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
