Thankful Thursday


Iris is hosting Thankful Thursday again, so please go visit her.  You’ll leave remembering how blessed  you truly are!  Here’s what I’m thankful for this week. 

God’s grace and love is sufficient for me.  No matter what I’m feeling, He is feeling it with me.  When I feel like I can’t, He carries me throught it.

Brian and Brooke took a ski trip together and had a wonderful daddy & daughter day.  (No broken bones was a plus too!)

Zach has a good group of friends and is actively attending bible club now.

Matthew is the light of my day.  He just comes up and gives me a hug or kiss right when I need it!

More snow and ice in the forecast for tonight, maybe we’ll get a 2 hour delay and sleep in….  Maybe?

God is at work in my family, and He’s making visible changes.  I am so blessed.

Thankful Thursday


 Today I spent a little over 18 hours fasting and praying, so this edition of Thankful Thursday will be more spiritual. 

1.  I’m thankful that the Word of God sustained me today as I fasted and prayed.

2.  I’m thankful that the prayer time today transformed me. 

3.  Everything I’ve ever wanted in my life can be found in God.

4.  I’m thankful that my enemy is defeated because of what was done for me on the cross.

5.  I’m thankful that “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20). 

6.  I’m thankful for peace, patience, endurance, comfort, salvation, gentleness, love, joy, faithfulness, grace, mercy, kindness, truth, healing, protection, guidance, wisdom, discernment, worship, forgiveness, Godly role models and mentors, reconciliation, restoration, glory, humility, knowledge and did I say forgiveness…

Thankful Thursday

ttbutton.jpg  Another week is flying by in a frenzy of activities, both good and bad.  It makes me remember how long the weeks seemed when I was a child.  Where does the time go?  Anyway, still have plenty to be thankful for, so here’s my list.

  • Most of my house is clean today.  That will soon change because the kids are now home, but it will be documented here!
  • I was able to see my parents on Saturday when they came up for my birthday lunch, and again yesterday at a funeral.  Not a great place, but it was an awesome funeral.  See previous post.  I will see them again on Saturday because Brooke is dancing and they’re coming to watch.  We went from one time in 9 weeks, to 3 in 1 week! 
  • I’m saving money thanks to money saving mom!  I’ve only been “big” grocery shopping one time this month, and the rest has been for weekly stuff like milk, bread…and that one ice cream night!  I took an inventory of my pantry and freezer, and truly think we could live for a month on just that stuff alone.  I can’t wait to tally up my numbers to see the savings.
  • It’s supposed to be single digit temps in the morning, so we might, might, have a 2 hour delay!  I’m trying to be positive about freezing, and could really use the sleep!

Thankful Thursday

ttbutton.jpgI’m thankful for the health of my family, as so many that are around us are suffering with illness.

I’m thankful for the warm house that shields me from the arctic air that’s on it’s way here.

The beautiful stillness that I discovered when I opened the door this morning and saw the snow. 

Toes!  I guess I have a thing for toes, baby toes that is.  And my four year old still has those sweet toes.  He’s sitting in the chair with me, still in his PJ’s and bare feet.  I love his toes, and the way he works his feet around, hardly ever still, just like his daddy. 

My oldest son got a new puppy Monday night, and I’m thankful that he’s doing very well with the clicker training and housebreaking.  He’s also very cute, and loves to cuddle! 

My daughter is growing more mature every day, and quick to apologize when she’s said something hurtful.  She’s beautiful!

Tomorrow is my birthday, so I’m thankful that God saw fit in His plan to let me have another year.  Also thankful my parents are going to come up and visit, then we’ll go out to eat on Saturday.  I don’t have to cook!!!!  That’s always a perk!  I’m not off the hook for tonight though, so I have to go make the meatloaf now. 

Thankful Thursday


Another time to share my thankfulness with others. 

1.  I am thankful for my parents, who I can call and talk to about anything, and know they’re praying for me.  They make me feel so loved!

2.  I’m thankful to all the frugal moms out there whose blogs are teaching me how to stretch my dollar, and save on groceries.

3.  I’m thankful for my 90 day journey in the bible, because I know God is moving hearts. 

4.  I’m thankful for my friend Shannon, who forced me to work out last night for an hour.  I feel good!

5.  I’m thankful for my crock pot which I’ve used 3 times this week.  It sure beats standing over a stove!

6.  I’m thankful for dark chocolate and caffeine free diet coke.

7.  I’m thankful for the morning drive to school with my daughter.  It’s calm, and a good time to talk and listen.  It also seems like one of the few times of the day that I don’t “annoy her, or trash her life.” 

8.  I’m thankful God has given me one more day to tell everyone how much I love them.  Thank You God!
