Thankful Thursday

Wow, this one is going to be tough. I had a rough day yesterday and it has been a difficult few months. I know that writing down those things I'm thankful for will help me handle life in the best way I know how.

I am thankful for:

  • A minister with great insight who lets the love of God show through all he does. His sharing last night really hit home;
  • A wonderful group of friends and fellow believers to fellowship with and learn with;
  • A sweet and loving husband who is willing to hear my fears and address them with the Word, no matter how much I resist (I tend to want to mope);
  • Scriptures that are deep inside my heart that only need a quick reminder (from DH or myself) "Romans 8:1, darling;"
  • A mother who will take the time to pray with me when DH is in a meeting and God seems so far away;
  • Fresh peaches, ripe for eating;
  • A cat who, despite his faults, entertains and snuggles when he senses I need it;
  • Lungs to take deep breaths;
  • A reliable car with a radio that blasts when I need to stay alert and awake;
  • Golden Oldies to sing really loud to;
  • Thankful Thursday to remind me to breath with those lungs and pray with my understanding and leave the rest in His hands.

Wow, so much deeper than I thought it would be. I think it's just what I needed. Thanks to Sting My Heart for hosting Thankful Thursday.

What a blessing to have a husband that not only listens, but responds with the Word of God. That's such a wonderful thing. :)

Sometimes writing a Thankful Thursday post in the midst of a bad week is the most fulfilling experience. Glad you opted not to skip it.
