Thankful Thursday--and hopefully everyday!

Good morning!
\o/ The coolness of the Fall is here and that is so tops on my thankful list. I love the chance to pull out my jeans and a light jacket. Well, maybe I don't need the jacket yet-but I am looking forward to it. ;)

\0/ I am thankful for my church family and how they keep me grounded. I feel so loved and cared for and it is a safe place for me. Thank you God for removing boundaries and healing my heart so that I could trust again.

\o/ Thank you for my sweet hubby who knew I was stressing and gave me a birthday present a little early-- so I could spend some time pampering myself. I love you baby!

\o/ I thank God for the rough times. That even when I don't understand why life is what it is---He promises me that He is at work. And, He is working it together for my good! Yes, I think I can thank Him for that.

\o/ I am thankful for the growth that I see taking place in my spiritual walk. Times before when times of sin would lead me down a path of "paying for it"--today that is over with. My God is not like this world and the only ones He is going to make pay for their sins are the ones who reject Him and step into eternity with out His blood. Thank you JESUS for your blood!

\o/ Thank you God that you want me in your life. When I don't approach your throne boldly--you look for me anticipating the sound of my voice. I love you. You are pure and lovely. In you is no impure thought. Thank you that you don't hold a grudge and you never withhold your love from me. I need you more than life itself. Thank you for your patience.

Thank you Iris!
I have met some really neat ladies through this. Have a great BIRTHDAY!

And, if you want to meet Iris or some other nice women go on over to Sting My Heart.

I love to be reminded to look at all the blessings I enjoy. I too am thankful for spiritual growth, although I would love it to come way easier and sooner than it does :) I'm glad that still it comes. Just this week I was able to respond to someone who hurt me deeply in a loving way and I am praying that God will use that to help to lead this precious person to Himself.

Love the truth that God wants us in His life! Praise Him! And that He looks for us. How awesome is that. How wonderful to get an early birthday present... no one has said anything about mine yet, so I am in this waiting game wondering... are they going to remember?

Bless you heaps, I loved your comment on the trampoline post, that really inspired me! You are enjoying fall, I am relishing Spring today, I walked to the mall and back and the weather was so gorgeous, I just had on a tee and pullover and spring skirt with sandals - smells of freshly mown grass, blue sky - just gorgeous. Our clocks spring forward this Sunday too.

Thank you for your valued friendship and encouragement - oh do check out MizPam's blog post - she is Godmother to my children and she's put up a cute post :-)

This is a delightful TT praise offering and I am with you. I love the Fall. Praises to the King for His glorious art work of color. Blessings.

I love the photo you have posted with this post -- I love to walk in the woods, sadly they are a little far away for us to do it daily. I love the fall. It is still warm during the day and the nights are comfy cool :)

You know, I love that God wants to spend eternity with me and made a way for me to get there. I love the fact that His grace is sufficient for me when I am weak and heavy laden.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week -- and the sweet birthday wish :)

Blessings to you and yours.
