Thankful Thursday



Wow. I really have even more to be thankful for this week. The Lord is so good. He keeps blessing and blessing and blessing. The blessings are overtaking me at every step!

First of all, I am so very thankful for the visit that we just had with my parents. The visits with my parents have not always gone well and some have been downright awful. (and they would attest to that) However, this trip was very different. It was fun, relaxing, and we definitely made some good memories. I honestly enjoyed being with my parents and spending the time with them. I had a very good time with my mom and had good talks with her and lots of laughs. I was very sad when they left and I have missed them the last two days. I am so thankful that everything went so well, that there were no arguments or problems, that we had good weather for the zoo, that both birthdays went well, that my mom enjoyed her birthday and that we are building a stronger foundation now, then we have ever had.

Secondly, I am thankful for results of my friend's gestational diabetes test. She was very worried about it and I am so thankful that it all came out well. Thank You God for always providing!

And lastly I am thankful for the knowledge the Bible gives us about God's kingdom so I can improve my life and make it the best life possible. I am thankful that I can help meet the needs of other people in my life and I can do God's work in whatever he needs me to do.

Oh!! Oh!! And as a purely selfish thing, I am thankful that I won a contest! That's right!! I won Chocolatherapy from 5 Minutes for Mom! Thank you guys so much!!

I love the way you Shine for Jesus in your blog posts, especially today with your Thankful List. Way to go on winning the contest!! (I had never won anything in my life until a couple of months ago. I went to a jewelry party and my ticket was drawn for "mystery hostess". I won 400 dollars worth of jewelry!! SO FUN!!)

I am so thrilled to read that you had a wonderful visit with your parents. Great that you were able to build some great memories.
It is always wonderful to hear about good test results...
The Bible is such life-giving tool. I was reading Proverbs 12 today -- oh my, I really need to keep my tongue in check.
Congrats on the contest win :)

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week.

Be blessed today and always.

Hey!!

So happy to see you blogging again. I'm glad to "hear" that you had a nice visit with your parents. :)

And YAY for good GD test results! I really hate the way they test for that (not just because it tastes awful but other reasons)! I'm sure she's glad to have that all done with!

I'm a day late visiting, but enjoyed your list. In a way I"m glad I visited now so I can pray for your daughter! I am about an hour from Kansas City. Praying all is well!!
