Thankful Thursday #19

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey


Welcome to Thankful Thursday! If you'd like to participate, just copy the T.T. button on my sidebar and paste it into your post. Next write down five things you are thankful for this week. Finally, come back here and link up with Mr. Linky. It's that easy!

Here's my list for this week.

1) I am thankful that my husband is a man who has strong character. Whenever life gets difficult, I know I can turn to Tim for strength and courage and support. He always rises to the occasion. I need a man like that in my life!

2) I am thankful for my children. Each child is a hand picked special gift from God to me. Every day that I have with them is a privilege and a joy. My quiver is truly full of God's blessings.

3) I am thankful for God's creation. This week, while eating lunch, my kids and I spotted a pair of bluebirds sitting on our deck railing. The sun was gleaming on their neon blue backs and it was a sheer delight to behold with our eyes!

4) I am thankful that when life gets tough, we can be confident that God is holding us up and walking us through the situation.

5) I am thankful for these T.T. posts. My heart is heavy tonight so taking time to write this post has helped to shift my focus from the woes of life, to the blessings.

I pray that you are uplifted by being here today. I encourage you to participate, especially if you don't feel very thankful right now. Love you all! God Bless.

Sonya,

I can truly understand the heavy heart. I've been there these past two weeks also, and focusing on the positive instead of the negative always helps me to shift my focus, too. Definitely makes us thankful for all that God has given and done for us.

Thanks for having a Thankful Thursday so that we can zero in on these positives and stay thankful!!

Sonya,

When our hearts are heavy and we turn them towards God....aren't you and I thankful that in the midst of that we can still have His peace knowing He isn't far?

Love you,

Sonya, I will pray that your heart is lifted.

I have been very thankful this week, however very, very busy! I missed posting my Thankfulness!

My week has been full of new opportunities and blessings and I rejoice in the God who gives us all good things.

Continued prayers for your family through your move to a new home and new school for the children.
