Thankful Thursday


I'M THANKFUL FOR

* My savior, Jesus Christ.
* My husband who was also my junior high/high school sweetheart.
* My children and grandchildren.
* All my new blogging friends and sisters in Christ.
* Encouraging e-cards and emails from someone very near and dear.
* I AM Bible Study at The Preacher's Wife blog.
* Two days spent with a friend who needs prayers and a listening ear.
* Through prayer, I can ask my Heavenly Father for "spiritual eyes".
* The realization that even though my earthly father passed away a year ago next Thursday, I will always have a Heavenly Father.
* Loving church family who treats us like real family which is truly a blessing since my husband and I both lost our last parent in 2006.
* Making it through a bad storm with tornadoes and strong winds in our area Wednesday.

1. I will praise You, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders. 2. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. Psalm 9:1-2

Isn't it wonderful to know that we have Someone who made it possible to approach our Heavenly Father. I am so glad that Christ died for us and we don't have to 'earn' our way to heaven.
It is wonderful that you have a great church family. It is important that we have a great 'support system' this side of heaven.

Thank you so much for sharing your gratitude this week with us.

Blessings to you today and always.

Great list!
I am late getting mine out today.
Sorry to hear you've lost your Mom also. I miss her so much right now. Mother's Day and our Birthdays are in May. But Thank the Lord, we'll meet again someday.

Through prayer, I can ask my Heavenly Father for “spiritual eyes.”

Yes, and He gladly gives to those who ask, and are willing to handle the responsibility of seeing through them. Often the obligation is only to pray.

Your list is a great reminder of what is really important.

Pearls of wisdom...a heavenly voice.
