Thankful Thursday

It seems like it was just Thursday yesterday...so how did it get here again so fast?

Some things I'm thankful for this week:

*Barbeques, potato salad, watermelon and jello cake

*Dinner out and a date night with my lifetime lover

*Turtles, minnows and worms...

*Bible Study - today was our last meeting for the year. Thanks ladies for a great study and for your sweet gifts of appreciation.

*A husband who is sold out for Jesus. He's going to be speaking this weekend to the men of our church (and community) about maintaining sexual purity in an immoral society.

*One first grade girl who braved the inside of a digestive system (a model at the children's museum)

*Another little girl singing about dinosaurs "We will, we will STOMP you! Woo!" and four in the bed (complete with a nightcap) at her end of the year program

*A God who never changes, who remains forever loving no matter what is going on

What a sweet list, Heather!! I love the thankful part about summer...BBQ, potato salad, watermelon, and jello cake!! Since we both live in the north, we appreciate those things so much this time of year because there are only a few months we can enjoy them. I didn't know how lucky I was when I lived in the south!!

Thanks for your prayers for my baby's eye surgery on Tuesday. It was completely heart-wrenching to watch him go through that but he is doing much better now. I've got an update on my blog.

Hope you are having a wonderful day!!

Hey Heather,

Yes, it's Thursday, again! Time does fly by huh?

I finally got to see Prince Caspian it was GREAT.

I just love little Lucy, is she precious or what? I want her child-like pure faith.

Congrats on your new additions to your family, I've have my share with 5 sons!

Hope you have a blessed day♥

Heather,
I loved reading your Thankful post and your Newest Addition to the Family. Last year my kids caught a snake and a lizard. Because I am a "mean mamma" they were not allowed to bring either inside. I don't share a house with snakes or lizards!!!!

What a treasure it is to have a husband who is speaking out on sexual purity. My husband too does some speaking at the men's retreats here. They are doing a Wild At Heart retreat in October that he will be speaking at. I am so grateful to have a like-minded partner on this journey with me.

I know you are too!

Hugs,
Julie

I've tried my first hand at Mr. Linky but I need someone to test it. It's all about Prince Caspian! (Yes, he was easy on the eyes) No that wasn't what the post was about. But if you want to pop over if you have time and try it for me!

Thanks for the comment on my Laced for Grace devo from last weekend.

It's been a while since I've had regular time to peek at blogs. Miss it.

Hope you are doing well. I love the thanks about the children..

Mmm, we had our first watermelon of the season too--yummy! Gotta love kids and what they find, say and do :)

Heather said...

What a great list, Heather! Yay to Hubby for tackling a tough, almost taboo, topic. I pray that God will give him the strength to be bold.

Have a blessed day!
