Thankful Thurday

It is that beautiful day again----Thankful Thursday----and it is a beautiful day outside.
God is good.
I am thankful for the new scripture memorizing program that I found out about on another sisters blog. They send you emails to help you memorize the verses.
This was my first.
The verse is in Job 19:25
"I know that my Redeemer lives and that in the end he will stand upon the earth."
Can we all be thankful for that truth? Yes indeed! Come Lord Come!
Next, I would be wrong not to mention the freedom that we enjoy in these United States. While in Texas we showed the children a film about the Church in some parts of China. I am thankful that I can listen to Christian music on the radio and that I don't have to sneak to church when I go. I am thankful I am not having to pray that they don't find out who my pastor and his family are because then they might pick him up and put him in jail.
I thank God for our freedom in America, most of all religious freedom.
Did you like the flag up top? Notice the cross? They said it is an undoctored photo--pretty cool.
I was so thankful last night for a date night with my hubby. We went to church together. It had been a long time since he had been able to go on Wednesday night because of Paw Paw. I fixed his favorite dish--lasagna(we eat at church on Wednesday nights) --and I am thankful for how he enjoys my cooking. It makes me feel good that I can do something so simple to make his day. And all that gives me a thankful heart.
Last--because I don't want to keep you too long.........the number of thankful women is growing! YES!
I want to thank God for-- as some would say, "in my face" showing me that He is intimately aware of my every thought. I was feeling a little bogged down the other day and he was listening. The sad thing is that I was not even directly talking to him about it. I should have been...shame on me. But, you know he is good and he decided to prove his goodness and love in an almost silly way. He used someone else to bless my heart. It is silly I know, but sometimes you wonder if people are really listening to the ramblings of your heart. If they really get you.
Thank you again Karen for listening to God. He spoke and you responded. Way to go girl!
Thank you God........... for your limitless love for us.
We raise our hearts to you because they are yours to have and to hold. From now until we wrap our arms around you in person when we step into eternity.
To borrow an expression,

And for allof those other thankful ladies go check out Iris at Sting My heart--she is a blessing..she really is.

Yes, He is the solid rock. I Cor. 10:3 -They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.

I totally agree with you that God is so amazing. He always 'sends' people my way when I need ti the most.
Very cool about the verse memorization program. Maybe I need to start that :)
You know, the church in China has been on my heart since I read Randy Alcorn's book "Safely Home" several years ago.
Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week. And thank you for your very kind words about Sting my Heart (the original *smile*).
Be blessed today and always.
