Thankful Living



Take time to be thankful, speak often in praise,

Arise in the mornings and grateful hymns raise;

Let gratitude fill you, show forth to the world,

The blessings of Jesus and serving the LORD.

Take time to be thankful, as “to-do lists” grow long,

Lift high Jesus’ Name, sing aloud joyful song;

Be grateful for voices and hands, legs and feet

That are able to work in the cold and in heat.

Take time to be thankful, as the world rushes on,

Not caring for others who live all alone;

To busy to help them – “I’ve too much to do!”

So they pass right on by; not caring – Do you?

Take time to be thankful, e’en when no one else,

Has uttered forth praise for all that’s in-house;

Perhaps if you start being thankful today,

The “flu-bug” of thankfulness will ne’er go away!

Take time to be thankful; give thanks in ALL things,

For dry spells in harvest or the rainbows bright rings;

Let’s be thankful for everything sent from above,

All the bounties of earth from our God, who is LOVE.

Heart full of thankfulness


I want to thank each of you for your support this year in 2015 whether you gave financially, prayerfully, gave mental and physical support or just sent me an encouraging email to give me a little umph to keep going. Each one of you are very special to the One who created you and to me for the support and encouragement you are as a friend.


Perhaps someone has come to the end of 2015 and thinks they have not made much of a difference this year. Did anyone care what they wrote in the blog? Did anyone try the recipes? Even if it was an outlet for the writer/ blogger, just knowing I tried and with the umph from my encouragers, I can say I have had triumph! 🙂

You (me included) will never know whose life you touched this year. Remembering to be a positive influence and saying words of LIFE over ourselves and those around us- is not always easy, but being able to sleep with a clear conscience at night makes it worth it!

Power of Thinking

When you have a heart full of thankfulness, you can do as this mother did– she found  and thanked each person in the medical field who helped save her son’s life after the horrible accident that claimed her husband’s life. It means so much to those who have never been thanked for their hard sacrifice of time, tears, sweat and time away from family to serve you when you are the most sick. Remembering to say thank you is not always easy, but it is usually the first thing we are taught as a young infant/growing toddler. Please make it a point today to tell someone how much you appreciate them. We are not promised tomorrow.


And finally, please consider giving to local charities when you are blessed financially. Give to local businesses. Send a note of thanks or encouragement to them. You will never know how much it means until you are on the receiving end. 🙂

One more thing… if you have benefited from the Mannafold Blessings in Health blog posts, please consider sending me a note or email and letting me know what you enjoyed, things you would like to learn more about, any tips or advice on things you would like changed or any other words of encouragement you feel led to share! 🙂

Thank you so much,

Attitude of Gratitude

The time of year has come where family and friends give gifts to each other.  Some of the gifts we may appreciate and some we don’t like and want something different…..

How often are we given gifts from our Heavenly Father and we forget to thank Him? Do you ever think about the gift of sight? Smell? Hearing? Touch? Taste?


Mr Minion has the correct response!! 😀 How can we be more grateful when we have every material thing at our fingertips? In today’s world, it only takes a credit card, the touch of a button, and the item shows up on our doorstep within a week. I think it would do us well to focus on the material things that DO matter- clothing, shelter, food, water, and the Book of Scriptures.

Give the gift of socks, blankets, gently used shoes, mittens, scarves, hats etc to those who need them! Go through your closets and see what you can do without… if you have more than one pair – you are among the worlds rich.

What about the gift of time? I would venture to say that most everyone would rather have some of your time instead of a gift to remember you by. Go visit your aging parents or grandparents! Go visit the nursing home and ask the nursing staff if there is anyone who does not have family. I remember many of my former patients just crying because no family members came to visit on special days or holidays.  And be sure to give them your attention when visiting… One day you will look up from your phone and your parents and grandparents won’t be there. Honour your father and mother. (Exo 20:12)

Visiting grandma

Most of all, give thanks to Father for the gift of Salvation through His Son, Yeshua and for the large family of believers we can join arms with as we travel this road called LIFE!

Blessings of Shalom,

Coach Shannon

PS: Shalom is a Hebrew word that means “May that, which is producing chaos, be destroyed!!
