Thankful Thursday

This has been a challenging week for me. I have been dealing with a number of things including major pain with my back. I am still able to praise my Lord this morning and have so many things to be thankful for.

~I am thankful for the rain showers we received this week. It has been so hot and dry and my flowers are struggling!
~I am thankful for a son and daughter-in-law who are obedient to the voice of God. Casey has just accepted a position at Evangel University and they will be moving to Springfield, MO in August. I will miss them so much but I know that God has given them a peace regarding this next step in their ministry.
~I am thankful that the meds I am taking for my back is allowing me to manage the pain so I can function.
~I am thankful that God is still on the throne and He sees the whole picture even when we feel confused about our lives and question the direction we may be going.
~I am thankful for my two little people with fur who love me unconditionally and are always excited to greet me when I come home.
~I am thankful for music. I love music and truly enjoy leading our praise and worship team at church.
~I am thankful for my new dishwasher! It is marvelous!!
~And most of all I am thankful for an awesome God who loved me enough to sacrifice His only Son for me.
