Thankful Thursday


Yes, it is here again!
I really have so many things that I could be thankful for on this day--but I shall endeavor to contain myself.

Here goes;
\o/--I am thankful for my husband. He really showed me last week how to love a wife as Christ loved the church. I am thankful that God gave us both the strength to wait for the other to grow spiritually. I would have missed out on so much. He would have too. ;)

\o/--I am thankful for friends who see things in me that I hope are there-- but I do not yet see.
They have been my vision during this "blind" time.

\o/--I thank God for a book that has begun to change my way of thinking. My pastor saw my excitement when I started to tell him about a book that had changed me--and His response, "Is it the Bible?". Well, that is a fantastic source to use for change but this time God used another book to open my eyes. The book is, Understanding Prophetic People. Has anybody read this?
It explained a lot to me.

\o/--I am thankful that my hubby is going to get to go to his college reunion. It has been over 20 years since he has seen some of these guys. Can any one say--push-ups? :)
I hope they approve of His hard work--I sure do. ;)
Love ya baby!

\o/--I am thankful that even when I can not see God moving--HE IS!


For more ladies expressing their thankful hearts go on over and see Iris at Sting My Heart.
Have a fantastic day in the LORD.

You are too cute - push-ups...maybe I should get one of those rolly-thingis. Na - I better just start walking again.

No, I have not read the book you have mentioned - actually have not read any book (besides my Bible) for the past 6 months...

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

Be blessed today and always.

Fabulous list Sharon. I liked the one about your husband's love for you. Have you ever tried using one of those ab roller thingys? i did once- hilarious. Involved me lying on the carpet laughing. I could not do it!

I like your post it made me think of the things I am thankful for today also. GOD IS SO GOOD!

Heather Cox said...

I'm thankful that God doesn't always allow us to see Him at work - He graciously gives us times of darkness to grow our faith in Him to deeper levels.

Tell your hubby to becareful with his back trying to get his abs in shape! LOL. I was just reading in my Bible Study that sometimes what others see in us is hidden from us for our protection! I thought that was profound! Love ya!
