Thankful Thursday #38

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 loves me enough to send me on an annual writer's conference. He doesn't mind taking care of the kids and the animals while I'm away. I love you, Tim!!

2) I am thankful that I am at the Philadelphia Christian Writer's Conference with my friends Kelly and Laurie! Pray for our families and that we will get out of the conference what God wants us to hear.

3) I am thankful that I received my very first paycheck for my writing this week! I just stared at it and now it's sitting on my dresser waiting for me to frame it. I'm officially a paid author and I have to give all the glory to God! (And to my writer friends who encouraged me to write and to my family who support my writing.)

4) I am thankful for the idea to start a Bible study in my new neighborhood. I'm praying about it but feel like I will pursue this idea.

5) I am thankful for everyone who pitched in to watch my kids so I could go to the conference and not worry about what was going on back home. Love all of you!

Sonya, so glad you have the opportunity to be in Philly! I pray all three of you feel God's love as He reveals His plan for you:-)

Another great list Sonya. Have a great time at the conference and say hi to Kelly for me. Isn't it great to get paid for doing something that you really enjoy? Congrats on your writing.

Pray that you get exactly what you need at the conference.

Congratulations on your first paycheck. May there be many, many more.

When our girls were younger we started a Bible study in our home. The people who came were mostly from our church but it was great. A lot of learning, knowledge and healing happened during that time. We reached the point that some could actually tell some things from their past that they needed healing for. Starting a study in your neighborhood will be even greater. May God richly bless you.
From the heart,

Congratulations for your many blessings this week. From getting your first paycheck for writing, WOO HOO! To getting away to a Writers Conference which in itself will be pretty amazing I am sure.

Can't wait to see all the new ideas you come home with to share with all of us.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
