Wow... I cannot believe it is already time for Thankful Thursday! Where has this week gone?! :)
I must start out by saying that I really missed you all last week while I took a bloggy break to spend some time with my family during Spring Break. I missed sitting down and sharing with you in my posts and I certainly missed participating in Thankful Thursday.
However, we had an absolutely wonderful time together as a family! And, that is where I am starting my "thankfulness" with today. It was such a much needed time for all us -- and on so many different levels. Time together as a family, time away from work for my husband and I, time away from the daily routines of getting up for school and work, making lunches, laundry, etc., time to just sit back and relax and soak up the sun and wonderful outdoors that Lord has given us. We spent the week in San Antonio and took in Sea World (a BIG family favorite for us!), the zoo, the Alamo, the Riverwalk, and a great Wildlife Park.
We are also praising God this week for the blessings he has shown to my sister Carrie and her family. As I've shared in the past, they are preparing to leave later this year for the mission field. They will be serving in the Czech Republic. Well, one of the final big hurdles they had was to sell their house. They have had it on the market for quite some time now and were really beginning to wonder when they would have this step completed. There also was concern around what the final selling price would have to be, as well. I am here to tell you that last week God showed up in a big way with this whole thing.... they were able to sell their house and received their full asking price! To hear the whole story of how it all came about it just amazing... there is no doubt in any of our minds that God orchestrated it all.
There's been some good things happening around here for all of us and we thank you, Lord, for each and everyone of them!
