Thankful Thursday

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17

There are many reasons I'm thankful. Let me share a few...

* my personal relationship with Jesus Christ

* God's mercy and grace

* answered prayers

* a husband who is a blessing to me every day

* for the blessing of several days of rain needed so badly

* for the positive check-up my husband had at the Cardiologist

* long phone conversations with my son

* my hubby, children, grandchildren, and all my family

* I'm thankful to God for loving me through my weaknesses

* To Lori at Heaven Graphics for creating a free Virginia Tech Memorial Graphic for each of us to use.

I sing Glory to His name, for His name is great, and greatly to be praised!

  • May I ask you to continue to pray for our niece's baby girl who was born last week and is still in the NIC unit. Her little blessing is having problems eating so is being tube fed and when she reaches 11 pounds, they will do heart surgery.
    Thank you for remembering her.

  • Remembering the families of victims who died, those who are injured, plus all of the students and staff of Virginia Tech.

  • Last but not least, our military serving throughout the world.

    I'm always so blessed when I come here. I will be praying for your niece's baby.

    We don't have cable TV and only watch videos we borrow from the library so I don't see much about the heinous act at Va Tech. But I saw on Fox News website today about some of the things he said and did. If that's not under the influence of the enemy, I don't know what is.

    Bunches of blessings to you.

    I'm thankful for the many wonderful "net" friends I've made.

    I'm thankful for the warm spring sun shining today that reminds me of God's unending love for us.

    Most of all today, I am thankful for my Mom, it is her birthday today!
