For this wonderful Thursday I am thankful for :
Learning the true meaning of grace and joy in being in the Lord. I always grew up in a Christian home and church family but like everyone have had things happen to me or my family in my life that tested my faith .... I have always been an optimistic glass half full person ...some have made fun of me calling me Polly Anna or rosy glasses ,..maybe at times I have. But I have had a few hurtful things lately that grabbed my attention for a few seconds...LOL alright a few minutes... then realized like we all do :
I have the Lord in the center of my life , nothing or no one can take that away. That I need to focus on whatever joy he is blessing me with this week and that person or situation can't be used by the Devil to get to me . The Lord my God and faith are stronger then that. ( If I haven't lost you already thanks for bearing with me....~ smile) That I need to pray for that person to start seeing their own joy and not trying to hurt or take from others.
I am so thankful for the day of loving for Dear Sweet Heather, being so wonderful . I am so thankful for all of us being able to come together in faith and love for her.
I am so thankful my little one still loves being read to. Dr. Seuss is still great therapy...LOL
I am thankful for my wonderful friends, those I am meeting through this, and all of you participating! You all bring me sheer thankfulness and joy reading your posts every week.
I have wrote all the wonderful blessings bestowed on my family this week , in my gratitude journal. I showed my gratitude and devotional journals when a new friend to Christ came to tour my home and studio and was pretty sad . I am so thankful she asked me to help her make her own and blog to help join us.( No laughing...yes I now know how to use some of the widgets...~smile)
I am thankful we are taking the kids to the museum and a baseball game this weekend in the city.
Thank you Iris for hosting this for us.
In his endless love,
