Thankful Thursday

Outside my window this morning, the birds sing praise and the sun shines in worship to God most high. I join with them in praising my Creator today.

Thank you Father for blue clear skies, gentle breezes and cool lake waters.

Thank you Father for family and friends. I'm so thankful I live in this century where I can see my Mom and Dad even though they live across the country (even if it is only once or twice a year). I'm thankful for days at the park, for firecrackers and fresh fried fish together.

Thank you Father for the many new friends I've made recently at Write to publish. What a gift - to meet people and make such deep connections immediately.

I'm thankful for a job interview this morning and for peace about it too.

And finally, I'm thankful for all of the ladies heading off to She Speaks this weekend. I'm praying for you - that this would be a great time of learning and growing and that God would speak to each person's heart.

What are you thankful for today?

Hey Heather,

So great to read you you had a nice time at the Write to Publish, I'd love to hear more about it.

Praying for your interview, right now. Favor, favor, go before her Jesus...

What a great list. I have family close and some farther away. So it is a joy to get to see our farther away family when we can.

Praying for your interview.

Wonderful list Heather! God's creation is truly wonderful!!!

Heather said...

Wonderful thankful list! I am also thankful that distance doesn't keep family apart anymore. We're planning a trip up north later this summer. The first long trip for Ladybug. She'll get to meet my cousins and my aunts plus spend time with Grammy!

Have a blessed day, Heather!

I like hearing the birds sing, too. On a morning when the grass is wet, the birds are out in full force searching for worms & bugs!

Thanks for sharing today,

Thankful for our connection. Loved reading your TT reflection. I can't wait to hear from the She Speaks gals I've met online. Hope God blesses them mightily.

And I hope you stay connected with the new friends you've met at the conference. One of my dearest friends is Beth Vogt. We met at a writers conference five plus years ago. God is good.

Have a great weekend.

The birds. Defintely the birds. I never realized until a short while back how much they sing. I had never really stopped to listen. Well through the Lord leading me to a Science Curriculum for my 10 yr old daughter, I now go out every morning just to watch and listen to these wonderful creatures, just a small part of God beautiful creation here on earth. Thanks for sharing and have a blessed weekend in Christ Jesus.
