Thankful Thursday

I missed ya'll last week
so just to make sure I got in----- I am doing this post on Wednesday night.

What am I thankful for this week?
Well, first I am thankful that when I am down--my hubby now does a good job picking up the slack. And, not only did he pick up the slack, but he spent a little extra time taking care of me.

I am thankful for the rough road that I have been walking spiritually. That means that God is at work and the finished product is getting closer to perfection.
Nope, I hasn't been achieved yet--but it is coming. So, if you hear some moaning and groaning coming from these pages-- it is just because there is a little spiritual plastic surgery taking place.
And the funny thing is that I am not going for a younger look
but I am looking forward to looking a little more mature. :) \o/

I am thankful for my sistas that have so encourage my heart.
It does me good to see that there are other women who want to go beyond the surface and what many Christians think of as "enough". I will NEVER have enough when it comes to GOD.
He comes to fill my cup and as quickly as He fills it up- I want to pour it out to another. Then I get to go back for seconds and thirds and the good thing-- I don't have to worry about how it is going to change my waist line. Like a child who has found the source of free candy-I will never get enough of Him.

I am thankful that we are moving forward with getting our property ready to sell.
I thank God that He already has a buyer selected and the price has been set.
I thank Him that our new to us home is being prepared and it will be all that we need.

I thank God that He is not limited to the Bible when it comes to speaking to us.
He has been using a Christian novel to open my heart to where He is taking me and what His Spirit is capable of.
God is good all the time!

You are so right - it is a privilege to continue to grow closer to Him. I am hanging on the wild ride with both hands clinched to His hem...

I am glad that you are doing better and that you had a wonderful 'nurse' to make you feel better.

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

Be blessed today and always.
