Thankful Thursday #50

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 the spiritual leader in our family. It is so great to be married to another Christian. I realize that this is a privilege! When I want to tell him what God is saying to me, he is right there to listen and encourage me because he understands what I'm talking about.

2) This is my 50th Thankful Thursday post, WoooHooo, YeeeeHaaaa!!! Let's all celebrate great numbers of participants and 50 weeks of thanking God for all that He has done.

3) I am thankful for the fall colors. I absolutely love the fact that I live in the south and we enjoy a magnificent display of changing color all around us.

4) I am thankful that I had the opportunity to go on three field trips over the past week. We went to the pumpkin patch, the zoo, and Yorktown. All great times.

5) I am thankful for God's word. You know, there are times when the enemy whispers lies to me and I start believing them, UNTIL I remember to turn to the Word and read what God has to say. That always reveals God's love because the truth will set you free!!!

I want to say, "Thank You!" to all of you who have participated over the past 50 weeks! You have all blessed me and more importantly you've blessed God for your willingness to give Him all the praise! I can't wait to see who will be giving thanks when we reach 100! Hey, the sky is the limit!!

Thank You Father God for Thankful Thursday.

Sonya, I counted how many TT I have and only came up with five. I'm a newbie. LOL.

It's such a blessing to have other like minded bloggers to interact with.

Sonya, your TREES ARE ABSOLUTELY BREATH TAKING! REALLY REALLY beautiful! Bet you are awestruck everytime you see them! Our heavenly Father painted a masterpiece for you!

Sonya,

Having Thankful Thursdays reminds us to be grateful for the many blessings God has provided during the last 7 days. It is a great way to reflect on just how much God is working in all our lives.

I too love spiritual leaders in our husbands. Being married to a man that takes this serious is such a blessing for a wife and his family.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Sharon said...

Sonya, another wonderful list! You ARE truly blessed to have a man who accepts his role as spiritual leader of your household. I'm still praying that my husband to assume that role in our family.

Sounds like you have been busy...and enjoying it.

You are so right about the Enemy! The bible tells us that our battle is not physical but spiritual. The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy but God's words can be used to defeat him! Hallelujah!

LivingforGod said...

Thanks so much for faithfully hosting Thankful Thursday here! I also thank God for my awesome husband who is the spiritual leader of our family and for God's Word which is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
