Thankful for Love

I'm so grateful today for my lifetime lover who surprised me last night with red roses. What a treat! I'm lucky to have such a great guy.

I'm thankful for my three bundles of joy, each one adding a unique spice to my life. For the giggly, eager to please eldest, the tenderhearted middle child, and the bouncy third one!

I'm grateful for others who love me today: my parents, sisters, grandmas, in-laws and other extended family. God knew I needed these people in my life.

I'm thankful for the love of true friends too! Friends I've kept for years and across miles, friends I'm just making, friends I've never seen face to face...this list goes on.

Most importantly, I'm thankful for the love of Christ. For out of His love for us, He gave up His life.

Iris at Sting My Heart hosts Thankful Thursdays. Go visit her and be blessed by all the thankful hearts.
Edited to add: I'm also thankful that my blog is no longer wally gunk (thanks Mel for that great word!), "creative" or whacked. The bloggy bugs have miraculously disappeared.

Beautiful post, Heather! I'm always warmed by the Lord's love when I come by your space. I do hope to meet face to face, someday, even if it is in Heaven before the throne of God together!

Love the new blog look, too!

You can gladly use my Mel'ism's any time...now, if you could just help me figure out what the letters are on your word verification right now...it looks like"amlwqaxg" but it so tight and together my eyes are crossing...(maybe I should go to bed!!!)

I can't agree more... nothing beats a wonderful husband and children! I can't imagine not having them and thank the Lord for them every chance I get!
