Away

Hi All!

Just giving you a heads up that we are going to San Diego today!!! Hubby hasn't seen some of his family in years. The sad thing is it's only for sort of 4 days. :{ But, at least we get to go!!!! I don't know if I'll have a chance to get on here or not. I'm taking my laptop with me just in case. So I'm going to go ahead and post Friday's funnies today, as I think this one is pretty funny. Hope you all get a chuckle at least; as laughter is the best medicine. ;) So in one post here is Thankful Thursday and Friday's funnies.


As always, there are so many things to be thankful for.

1. First and foremost I'm thankful for being in God. Being led by the Holy Spirit. For being given the gift of being forgiven for our sins.


2. The chance for hubby and I to finally have a short vacation to see family.

3. For having such a wonderful family. Hubby is the sweetest. Even through our rocky times, we manage to come out of it unscathed, thanks to the Lord.

4. Beautiful grandchildren that bring so much joy, smiles, and laughter.

5. Such wonderful friends of which I am eternally grateful for. God is good!

6. For God's healing hand! For a good health report. For my health improving. Even my knee appears to be healed. Thought sure was going to need surgery on it again, but maybe not now. Hallelujah, thank you Father!

7. For answered and unanswered prayers. Yes, you read right, sometimes Gods greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.

8. For the opportunity to be able to read the Holy Bible and practice what it says. While praying that freedom will never be taken away from us.

9. For the sun, rain, snow, God's grace on the earth with all the beauty.

10. To wake up in the morning with a cup of coffee, sitting blogging and listening to the birds sing some mornings. I love mornings, it's the best part of the day! Thank You Daddy!

I've began to realize that we should be thankful for all things in life, even our trials and tribulations. The pain that we are sometimes put through. Yes, you read right again. I'm thankful for those times, as that is when Jesus is testing us, and using us for the greater in life. He's using us for perhaps to reach others, to have a testimonial that will aid someone else later on when they are going through the same thing. Perhaps to teach us and draw us nearer. No matter the consequence, He is using it to help someone. Thank you Jesus!


Hope you all have a Blessed, Happy, Thankful Thursday!

How Technology has changed us.

Yikes! Sad, but somewhat true.

Have a great laughter funny Friday day.

May you all be given the gift of laughter today and everyday!

Amen to your list of things you're thankful for! And thanks for the laugh! How true! I hope I'm not that big of a gut yet!
May God bless you and keep you as you go to San Diego back and forth. Lots of places to see there but what matters is that your hubby will get to see his family. God bless sister!
