Thankful Thursday #3

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

It's time for Thankful Thursday again! I really am enjoying taking the time to really think about the little things that I'm thankful for each week.

If you're new to Thankful Thursdays, just list five things that you are thankful for each Thursday. In a world that has become so negative, it feels great to give thanks to God.

So, here are my five things for this week!

1) I was able to see a bluebird up close with my 6 year old daughter. The sun was just gleaming off of his radiantly blue coloring. What a treat as we just marveled together over the beauty of God's creation. I'm so grateful for that moment.

2) I'm thankful to have the word of God. Whenever I'm feeling scared, or confused, or sad, I know I can open up my Bible and find God speaking to me through his love letters.

3) I'm thankful for my health. I heard about a woman that was very sick this week, she has an extremely rare disease that may take her life. Oh, how I am thankful for my health - and I pray God will heal this woman of her illness.

4) I'm thankful for the love of my children. They constantly shower me with love notes and gifts and hugs and kisses. I treasure them all.

5) I'm thankful for my van. It was in the shop for 2 days this week! With six kids we are home bound when the big van is broken down. I am so grateful to have it back and to be able to drive around wherever and whenever we need to.

Well, that's my list of things that I am so grateful for.

Dear Lord, I lift up these words of praise and thanksgiving to you. I know that every good and perfect gift comes from you, thank you!

I loved the bluebird moment. That was the best. And the van is completely understood. The same thing happened to me two weeks ago. LOL.

Great Christmas picture. You have a beautiful family.

Ditto on the family portrait--I long for the day when the four of us will be able to look into a camera and smile all together!

Guess the bluebird hasn't "gone away" yet for the new bird (walking in a winter wonderland....) A treat from God, indeed!

Blessings Sonya...I'm really thankful that you started another Thankful Thursday! Although I so enjoyed TT with Iris, the participants have really grown.

Thank you for your sweet words & visit yesterday, I came here & then decided I would wait for your Thankful Thursday! So here I am!

It is so amazing to me to see the range of the beauty of your 5 things! How blessed! What a great heart!

I noticed last week that you don't have a Mr. Linky. Did you want one?
They have made it easier and you can use a free one. Let me know. I'm not a computer whiz but if I could set it up for my two memes, anyone can...they really walk you through it well and are helpful.
