Thankful Thursday

The past two weeks have been so incredibly busy. I am so thankful today that even in all of our business God is still there when we call upon His name. Life tends to throw a curve ball every now and then but our God is constant. Never changing. The same yesterday, today and forever.

I am thankful today for good health. I see so many people around me struggle with pain and suffering.

I am thankful for friends and family. Where would we be without the encouragement of friends and the loving hugs of those who truly believe in us? They encourage us to get one step closer to our dreams.

I am thankful for the opportunity to serve God at the place I am in life today. We often become anxious to try to force God's hand regarding His plans for our lives. I am thankful that He loves us and cares enough about us to take care of us in all situations. I totally trust Him with my life and future. His will is not my will. Even when we become impatient and sometimes act like spoiled children God knows what is best for us.

I am thankful for two wonderful children that God has given to me. We tried for seven years to have children. There were times when I thought it was never going to happen. Our daughter is a wonderful Christian woman and a great mom. Our son is an evangelist and is such an inspiration to me. He is mature way beyond his years in Christ. My hubby and I are truly blessed.

I am thankful for the ladies in my 3 mentoring groups. They are an awesome group of women.

I am thankful for God's protection over my son and daughter-in-law yesterday as they drove back to MO from VA.

    Sister, did you ever say a mouthful there!! You are right though...God has AWESOME plans and we can TOTALLY trust Him for things to work out in HIS WAY and HIS TIME!

    Thanks for sharing your sweet list with us!


  5. I, too, am so thankful that God is always constant. Things in this world change around us almost everyday and it is so wonderful to know that God will ALWAYS be the same.

  6. You know - sometimes our will is very different from His will. It took me a while to grasp that, but I am thankful that I am learning that His ways are much, much better than my own.

    What a blessing to have such incredible children.

    Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this past week.

    Blessings to you and yours.
