Thankful Thursday!!!!!!!

Good morning!
It is a beautiful day because God made it just for us!
I pray you are feeling loved today. I had a friend who is now walking on gold streets and he used to ask people if anyone had told them yet that day that they were loved.
So I will ask you.
Has anyone told you today that you are loved?
You are.
The one who breathed the very breath of life into you--HE LOVES YOU DEARLY!
He watches over you jealously. And He wants you to know it.
And because He loves me--I can tell you--I LOVE YOU!

So do you know what I am thankful for?
God's love!
I am thankful that Wednesday night at church we are studying the book of John. And while reading tonight--something hit my pastor. There is a verse that says Jesus wants us to be with Him. As Christians we say often--I know. But do you know what that means? He longs for us and He is missing having us right there with Him. That is a neat thought. Kind of like when family goes away and we can't wait for them to get back home.
Neat don't ya think?

I am also thankful for the reminder from one of my blogging friends that sometimes God shows up in the stillness not the whirlwind. So this week in the quiet of my Bible time--He has shown up loud and clear. How could I not be thankful that the God of the Universe stepped down to speak to little ole me?

I am thankful for my laptop.
It was a very special gift because it gave me a lot of new friends. ;)

I am thankful that when I have a problem and I go to God and ask Him to fix it--He jumps on it with both feet. He wants unity within His body and when that is our desire too--watch out-- there is going to be a lot of lovin going on!

Ya just got to love Iris!

Thank you for the reminder of God's love today. I needed it as I was volunteering today that brought some no so uplifting responses. But I kept smiling!
