Thankful Thursday



As always I am thankful for so many things. Mainly being a daughter of our Great Lord our God!

But I am also thankful for His cleansing, His giving us sight to see our wrong doings, for His forgiveness and love, for setting us on the right path once again.

I'm thankful my children, grandchildren, parents, sisters and their families, for my husband and his parents, brothers and sisters. For the love that is allowed to flow through our families for one another and not having the split families that don't get along.

I'm thankful for the nice weather coming, for the singing of the birds, the warm sun upon our faces, the gentle breezes, the color of green being more vibrant this year than normal and the colors of the flowers. For there being enough water from the snow melts and rains that we have finally received this year!

I'm thankful for my oldest grand daughter opening her heart and going up to the front of the church to receive God!!! I love his miracles and am so thankful for them.

I'm thankful to have read about one of the children being prayed for on my side bar coming through her heart surgery just fine. Of course still praying that she will recover fine. I'm thankful for doctors that are loving and caring enough to take the time to fix little ones and enduring the long hours and the intensity of operating on little ones.

I'm thankful for teachers that never give up and do their best to help children learn. I'm thankful my nephew T was honored for doing outstanding in Algebra when almost failing math class a couple of years ago. Yeah T's mom for helping him through his struggles. I'm thankful for parents that love, nourish and work with their children.

I'm thankful for books written that touch the heart and teach. I'm thankful for movies that opens ones eyes to see what is going on.

I'm thankful that the Lord took me to a T.V. program that I used to watch and haven't for a long time, "Law and Order" to receive a very much needed message. My mother and I were once so close when I was young, then one day something snapped in here and she's never been the same since. I always felt something wasn't right with her as well, my sisters thought the same. This particular episode let me see my mother all over again through someone else and helped me to understand and finally FULLY forgive her. I love you and am thankful for you mom. Thank you Jesus. What a relief and blessing that was.

Psalms 9:1-2

1 I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works.

2 I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.

What a lovely post. We do have so much to be thankful for, especially all those things so easily taken for granted.

I'm grateful that I was finally able to read your blog. I can see the small portion of your posts that appears on Google Reader, but for the last couple of days my IE has been acting up and not letting me get to the actual post on your blog so I could read it in its entirety. :-)
