Thankful Thursday

As women of God we each have so much to be thankful for. TT is a great place to remind ourselves how great our God really is and how amazing His promises are for all of us.

I am thankful that I have been obedient when God was speaking to my heart in a strong way regarding creating my website, blog and ministry.

I am thankful for all the ladies who read my blog and leave such sweet and encouraging comments. They truly minister to me.

I am thankful for our new little person with fur, Jericho, who has captured our hearts. A sixty pound puppy is not really little but we love him anyway! He has brought much joy,in spite of the stress, to our home.

I am thankful for our grandson's progress regarding his asthma. God is so good!

I am thankful that the Lord provided a great job with a promising future for our son-in-law.

I am thankful for those who always challenge my walk with the Lord. Although we sometimes look at these folks with discontent we truly should be thankful for them. Ministry is about relationships - good and bad. If you don't have people obviously there is no ministry. I am thankful that the Lord continues to instruct and encourage me as to how to manage the opposition and to grow spiritually from the experience.

I am thankful that God is always there for me when life becomes overwhelming, stressful and discouraging. He will never disappoint us.

  5. Good Morning Swee Lady, Thank you for your kindness. I was just tackleing more of Tuesday (the toy sort and such) feeling rather frustrated at my sweet little Dove, she is such a child to "rat Hole " her things. I am thankful for her creativity. It is not how I would do it but it is her way. The balance between our way and accepting another is our ministry. Thanks for the reminder :)
