Thankful Thursday!



Well I'm a little late, but still well within the day of Thursday so I'm doing good! It has been a busy day, week and promises to be a busy month, what with the coming Fall Children's Ministry season FAST approaching and with a pretty BIG change happening that only promises to bring more work, and possibly stress! Bring it on! Oh wait on second thought don't bring it on I was just joking! Enough babble until what I am thankful for this week! Iris' theme is hope! The verse she has on her site is the one I quoted all the way to California, Psalms 42:11 - Why are you downcast Oh my soul? Why so disturbed within me! Put your hope in God! For I will yet praise you my savior and my God! I love that verse! We are Christians have much to put our hope in! This verse is also said in Psalms 42:5 and Psalms 43:5! Isn't that great! David has to repeat it to himself too! Boy I love that!

I am so thankful this week that:

  • I do have a God that is faithful and true! That I can put my hope in him and never be disappointed!
  • That I have hope and a future with Him! But also hope and a future here! "On earth as it is in Heaven"!
  • My little peanut is at camp for the next 3 days! She has looked forward to this all year! She loves going to Camp Geneva and was quite bummed that it was only for 3 days!
  • I have read Philippians 4 and it has given me the right perspective for the next month and the changes that could otherwise stress me out! I love how God times these things for just when you need them! I was thinking "Boy I'm not getting through Philippians very fast!" Ah.... it's not my timing, but God! Thanks for that lesson Daddy!
  • I have two children that I sincerely love to be around! I am going to miss them so much when they go back to school! School right now is a "four letter word" in our house!
  • We laugh with each other, and genuinely enjoy being with each other as a family!
  • I have a husband who works hard, and loves taking care of his family!
  • I have friends to talk to about things that are on my mind! We don't get together much, but they are there when I need them!
  • I learned a lesson on friendship. It should be about "expectancy" not "expectation"! Ah... , but boy how I did the latter for many years!
  • There is rain and sunshine! For beautiful blue skies with fluffy white clouds, and for buckets of rain!

I need to get busy, so that is all I can do right now! Have an absolutely blessed evening, and check out the other ladies at Sting my heart who are sharing their thankful hearts today!

Yep, I left Libby this morning thinking she probably could have handled a longer week. Oh well now we know for next year. And 6 months ago I truly don't think she would have been ready for it. Maybe she has just grown up a lot this summer. However, she didn't handle Mom being gone well. She and Mark both told me about all the times she woke up crying.
Who knows?
Smiles!

Okay, Kimberly...I think we are on the same treadmill, or at least they are side by side. We seem to be stuck on the fast cycle. I'll pray for you and you pray for me.

Have a blessed week and enjoy your 3 days of peace!
