Thankful Thursday

This has been an incredible week! The Ministers' Retreat was absolutely awesome and very successful. We were blessed with incredible and anointed speakers and the presence of God was overwhelming. God is so good!

Blessed are those who dwell in Your house and Your presence; they will be singing Your praises all the day long. Selah!
Psalm 84:4

I am thankful for the incredible response in attendance for the Chick-Chat breakfast fellowship at Ministers' Retreat for the pastor's wives and credentialed women in our district. It was wonderful and I am so excited about this new ministry venture. We had approximately 100 ladies at the event! Praise God!

I am thankful that God is always by our side when discouragement creeps into our lives in bold colors. He is always there to encourage us and offer peace when the storm seems overwhelming.

I am thankful for my incredible hubby and family. They are such a blessing to me.

The beauty of Rocky Gap Golf Resort and Lodge was absolutely breath-taking. I am so thankful for the ability to see all of God's creation.

I am thankful for the many women I have met in blog world. It is amazing and exciting what God continues to do through my blog.

I am thankful today for all the things God has allowed me to be involved in. My life is very full and I am loving it!
