Thankful Thursday

Lord, this week You've shown Yourself to me in so many places lately. Here are a few:

*The birds singing sweetly out my window

*A big girl riding a bike with TWO wheels and two wheels only (and no spills yet!)

*Gourmet Pork Chops, barbequed chicken, fried fish, grilled shrimp... (made by my lifetime lover)

*A loving family who blessed me this weekend with a great gift wrapped up in Christmas paper!

*Softball games in the mud and the rain.

*Kids covered with dirt from cheeks and noses to grimy little toes

*Hanging the laundry out on the line to dry

*Power walks with a friend

*Dirt under my fingernails

*A new bike (with training wheels) for Missy, our second daughter (I'm grateful that broken bikes can be exchanged for working ones)

*A freezer quickly filling up with fish

*Creativity and beauty (I'm enjoying scrapbooking)

*Those Aha! moments when reading Scripture (Read some of Tuesday's In Other Words this week - amazing)



Thanks Iris, for hosting Thankful Thursdays!

Hey Heather,

Sounds like a wonderful week for you. I was doing just "FINE" until I read what your husband cooked for you...

(I'm on a liquid diet because of my TMJ now...)

Other then that, I'm OK.

Thanks for being such a faithful friend♥

Thanks Heather, Somehow I think a list of 13 wonderful thankfuls is more than a few???(LOL) It's a simply aMazing list that shows the love of a mom...Happy Mother's Day!

I went to read your Meditation Moment at Next Step of Faith! And added it to my favorites! I also went on down to see Tuesday's In Other Words...aMazing and awesome!

Thank you!I loved the daisies, too!
I guess I needed to hear what you shared about Hosea, God and me! I need to soak it in but I do agree
with all you shared! The Prodigal "Wife", I'm going to pass this on to my spouse to read! Bless

Heather,

This is such a beautiful post of how you just live in the moment with our Lord. That is exactly how life should be. AWESOME.

Nodding my head at your thankfuls! Our tradition is to wrap presents all year long in Christmas paper as well!! It is the only paper we ever have around.
