Thankful Thursday

Which way do I go--Which way do I go.............I am thankful He knows!

Good Day to You!
I missed out on Thankful Thursday last week so I wanted to be sure to get in this week.
What is the purpose behind these posts?
The purpose is to lift first the heart of our Father and second to lift the heart of the reader.
I agree with Iris about our posting being a ministry.
If sharing my life and what I am learning in my relationship with God helps someone......It will have all been worth it.

Today I am thankful to be celebrating my son's 18th birthday.
He is a people person just like his dad. People enjoy being around him and I pray that one day God will use this for His glory.
I love you Michael.

I am so thankful for my blogging girls who listen to my heart and accept me just where I am.

And like Iris, I am thankful that God can take the dessert times and bring a new sweetness to our relationship. Having our mind and heart stretched is not always a walk in the park.
But in the end when we look down at our heart and it is full and healthy---it is so worth it.

I am thankful for my husband. My heart was hurting last night. And even though he had had such a long day he still took the time to spend a little time concentrating on me and then prayed for me. I thank God for the growth in our marriage and being able to share with Keith where I am with out wondering if he would understand.

Last......I thank God that He holds my future. Because He already has it planned out I can remind myself that I don't have to be anxious about anything. He knows where our new home will be. Matter of fact if I listen-- He is going to show me right where to go to find this house.

I'm thankful for you, Sharon and your loving, humble heart. It's a busy week with school starting and company coming in...will you pray for the details for me this week. They have the results for my blood tests, but can't share them until a specialist looks at them...I feel impatient.

Love and prayers back your way,

Happy Birthday to your son!!!

Happy 18th birthday to your son! May it be an awesome celebration. I have mentioned you on my latest blog entry - you really stirred up some stuff with that verse on the photo frame. It is so God and I am or will be when I get 'thinking' time, thinking upon it!

Dee said...

Happy birthday to Michael -- and congratulations to Mom & Dad!!! Wow -- we both were expecting our first 'babies' at the same time!!

I like your thankful list. And I' thankful for you and I agree, posting on blogs can be a ministry. One thing that I have learned is that no feedback doesn't mean that you're not touching lives. That was important for me to learn. May God continue to bless your openness! D

You so inspired me. I do know the power of God and his plan for our lives.

We just never know how God is going to bless us next.

I will be back to read your blog on a regular basis.

Happy Birthday to your son!! Enjoyed reading your list, I have come to learn to praise him more and more in the desert.

Have a great weekend.

Awesome post girl! We all have times of being in the desert. But we learn more of God's character there and that He truly won't leave us there. Thanks for sharing. Happy birthday to Michael! Blessings.
