Today, I share my heart....
I've read the story
I've seen the movie
I give to charity
And tithe my ten percent
These I remember
But I so easily forget
All these years never heard it like this

I was out walking the other day and this song came on the radio. It struck me. See, I'd been struggling with what to write for my thankful post. I was blessed to be part of this amazing 31 Days of Thanks series, but I couldn't find the right thing to write about.
It should've been meBut once I heard these words I knew... I knew what I needed to write about.
It should've been us
Should've been there hanging on a cross
All of this shame
All of these scars
Should've been stains that were never washed
Why do I hide
Why do you try
Over and over and over again
I guess it just leaves saying thank God
It leaves me saying thank God, thank God
For the should've been

The fact that it should have been me, but THANK GOD it wasn't!
It should have been me.... hanging on that cross. With all the shame, scars, and stains.
I live a good life
I love a great wife
Our kids are beautiful
We got friends down the street
If I'm so thankful
Why do I easily forget
That you died for all of this
It is so easy at this time of year to list what we're thankful for... and normally we begin with the fact that we are thankful for what? Our health and our family. Great things to be thankful for, but.... I was reminded through this song that I needed to be thankful for the fact that Jesus died for me!
What am I thankful for?
