I just came to think... Are we really thankful for having life? Have u ever wonder what is life for? if would still take it from us? do we really have to be thankful for having 'LIFE' no matter what our situation on earth? hope to hear your points of view people..:)

God gave us life for a reason.It is up to us to find our path and why He put us here.Iam almost 46 and still do not know exactly why.I know I was here to have 3 kids and teach some and spread the word of God. Good luck

God gave us life for pray for him, so that he made the circumstance for the human to learn themselves around him, we look at the universal we are getting lot of practical sympols which has made by god so pray and will be thankful to god always.

...life.. the state of being alive, of existing.. It seems to me there are two things.. being alive/living, or not. Having life, or not having it. Far better to have it.. but if you're not alive, you wouldn't know it.. :)

Perhaps this could be listed out there as one of the most enigmatic questions, huh? I guess it really depends on one's experiences & outlook whether they have the tendency to be thankful to life--but if you ask me, it would be ultimately thankful to God. I guess that so many people are in this constant search as to what is the purpose of life (including me!!) that sometimes it personally outstands me sometimes as to how there are soo many people in this world who are trying to figure out life & yet haven't found their way through it while others are just simply enjoying life. In a nutshell--for me--LIFE is a mystery. ;)

Coming in this universe was not in our hand , but if GOD has bestowed with all our limbs and other parts in tact, we must thank him, if we see a blind, we must thank God who gave us vision, and when we do not have good earning , see people in Ethiopia , where people are really starving , be thankful to God, who provided us meals , SO BY SEEING THINGS IN COMPARISON WITH WEAKER SECTION , WE CAN THANK GOD

I don't think we have to be thankful for it. I mean, if you are happy, then yeah, sure. But the fact of the matter is, there are a lot of people out there whose whole life will have been a constant struggle. I am not so thankful about the life that I have, really at this point, I would be glad to go ahead on, then I would have to deal with anymore of the b.s. that is this life.
