This week I am thankful for so many things, so I thought I'd just share several of them with you instead of my usual one BIG thing.....
~ I am so thankful that God isn't finished with me yet. Each and everyday I need Him to help me grow and continue to mature in my relationship with Him. Each day I need Him to help me plant my feet firmly in His Word and His promises.
~ I am thankful for the rain. We've had quite a bit of rain here this week. We needed it. I also sleep SO GOOD when it rains. So, I'm thankful for a couple of nights where I slept and slept and slept.... ;)
~ I am thankful for the game UNO. Several months ago my son purchased this game with some money that he had saved. I hadn't played it in years (probably since I played with my parents and sisters as a teenager) and had forgotten it was such a great family game. My son is so funny... each time he gets a Draw 2 card or a Wild Card or a Skip card he grins from ear to ear and says, "Oooh... I've got a trick up my sleeve!" If he's got more than one of these cards he'll say "Oooh... I've got 3 tricks up my sleeve!" or 2 tricks or however many of these cards he holds in his hand. He hasn't seemed to yet figure out that he gives us a good idea of the cards he has when he does that, but he loves it! In turn, we love it, too, 'cause he is just to funny!
~ I am thankful for my loving and always supportive hubby. I've been struggling with some work-related situations lately and was sick over this last weekend. He has been such a rock as he's supported me in my frustrations and took care of things around the house and with the kids when I didn't feel good. I'm a lucky lady to have him as my hubby!
~ I am thankful for an opportunity I have next week to spend some time with dear friends that I haven't seen in almost a year! Oh, I can't wait until next Monday! I'm sure that will be at the top of my thankful list for next week, too :)
~ I am thankful for this opportunity Iris gives us each week to share with each other our many blessings. It is so good for me to take the time each week and spend time looking at all I have to be thankful for and then to share it with all my dear bloggy friends. Oh, and the blessing I receive as I read your posts of thankfulness is just the best! I love "Thankful Thursday"!
I pray you all have a wonderful Thankful Thursday and many, many blessings in the week to come!
