Thankful Thursday


Oh my, so very much to be thankful for this week but my body is exhausted and my brain is mush tonight. So.... not sure if any of this will be comprehend-able. However, I'm determined to get together my Thankful Thursday post. After all, regardless of whether it makes sense on paper or not, God knows exactly what I mean! (thank goodness!)

This week I am thankful for....

* Strength from God to lift us up when we are tired!

* My children and their love for God! If you haven't stopped by this week and seen
this post, go check it out and you'll know exactly what I mean.

* My first full year of blogging! What a great experience filled with new friendships.

* A sunny, beautiful day today!

* Each new day that I am able to wake up and experience!

* Time spent with God.

What are you thankful for today? Join in and tell us all the many ways God has bless you this week!

Time with God is probably one of the greatest blessings a person could have and it's a shame more folks don't know that. Your list is great and it doesn't even seem "mushy." Have a great night!
