Thankful Thursday

It is difficult to believe that another Thursday is upon us. The summer is passing quickly and before we know it September will be here. Ugh! I love summer.....

I am thankful today for an awesome God who showed up Monday night at Family Camp. His presence was so powerful. People were being touched by the hand of God all over that place during the altar service. It was just an incredible evening and I am so thankful I was able to be a part of it.

I am thankful for the prayers of my church family, friends and family for my recent back problem. It has been almost two weeks that I have been dealing with this pain. I am a very healthy lady, seldom have a need to see a doctor, rarely take medication and don't deal well with not being allowed to pick up my grandchildren or be told I am restricted to limited activity. Truly it has been driving me crazy!

I am so thankful for my incredible husband who has tolerated my moods the past two weeks. Poor guy! We will celebrate our 34Th wedding anniversary Sunday. I am so thankful that God brought him into my life. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when we were married. I was totally clueless regarding the responsibilities of a pastor's wife but it has been an awesome journey.

I am thankful for all the friends I have met in the blog community. Your encouraging comments and prayers have truly touched me.

I am thankful for a wonderful ladies leadership team at our church who has worked very hard to make the upcoming Hawaiian Luau this Friday night a success.

I am thankful that my pain meds are somewhat helping the pain in my back so I can continue to function at work each day.

I am thankful that God is only a prayer away. He is always available to us when we call upon His name.

Blessings to each of you today!


  1. Blessings and praying God will heal your back and take away the pain soon!

  2. Hello there, it is my first visit here. Great list of thankfuls. I too am suffering with back pain or I should say new back pain. I have a chronic problem that I try not to dwell on but this is a recent injury. I pray both of us are healed of this soon.

  3. So many people are celebrating anniversaries this week and next - me being one of them! Hope your back gets to feeling better - I had the worst back pain, but it went away after my gallbladder was taken out.
    Blessings to you today.

  4. I am so sorry about your back pain...thankful though about the awesome altar service! I pray blessings on your Hawaiian Luau! We had one at our church with our Christian Family Life Sunday School class and it was a great treat! We loved it! Hope yours is too!!! :)

  5. I always enjoy your thankful list, bless you.

  6. Praying for your back to heal. Enjoyed your list.

  7. Sending prayers for healing -- and for your hubby to hang in during this challenging time. I'm sure that both prayers will be answered!
