Thankful Thursday #47

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 still enjoys taking me out on dates. It is really special to date your husband, it is time well spent.

2) I am thankful that we live in a free country. It is such a privilege to pray in public or even to display our religious beliefs in public.

3) I am thankful that my children are growing into nice young people. It has been a great thing to walk alongside of each one and watch God's hand in their development.

4) I am thankful for special friends. Where would life be without them? I think that it is particularly neat that we can connect far and near through the internet!

5) I am thankful for God's grace. Knowing that He has forgiven my offenses (over and over) allows me the opportunity to pass along that grace to others. I guess that's why they call it the circle of love.

I found your Thankful Thursday last week and have so been looking forward to joining in! I think I've linked OK but my blogging skills leave a bit to be desired and things don't always work the way I think. Thank you for this inspiration- trying to be thankful in all things is one of my resolutions for living.

Sonya,

My hubby commented that date nights are something we need to doing more of, I am of course waiting patiently for us to find time with his super busy schedule and traveling so much for work. We'll make it work one day!

Love all your wonderful weekly blessings and thank you for letting me be a part of them.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Hi,

I am so grateful to visit today. I came from Susan's blog (Runner Mom). I LOVE this idea. So often I forget to stop and be thankful for the MANY, MANY blessings the Lord has given me. Thank you for reminding me today.

Your list is great. I stand in agreement with them all.

I was late getting my TT's done and then forgot to come and sign Mr. Linky. Much to my surprise you still had it on your blog.

Sonya, I am thankful this week for God providing my son-in-law with a job after 6 long months of looking for one! We are praising God. I blogged about it on Wed. if you'd like to hop over and read more about it when you get a chance. Have a great weekend!

I thought I would sign up for Thankful Thursday under my other blog that I just created "Living The Life I Have Been Given." Wanted this to be a part of my other blog because I think Thankful Thursday is a true blessing.
