~Thankful Thursday~ April Showers

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Greetings and Holykisses,

I got the chores done early today without getting soaked! That's plenty of reason to put my praise on right there! ..... and I must say, the "Puddle-ducks" are in their absolute glory. Their hole behind the tractor is filled with fresh water.... poured out from the heavens like sweet-manna rain! I've been hearing people all around say how tired they are of rain every day, but I've always wanted to see the rain forest....and "now" I get to live in one! It's beautiful, lush and oh sooooooooooooo green!!

My Thankful Random 5 this week.....

Thank You Abba Father for your blessed rain! April showers bring May flowers! I look forward to them!!!

Thank you Abba Father for Myguy. Thank you for growing him into a strong, Godly man and giving him courage to speak Your Truth at work. We celebrate the seeds that were planted; all through the movie "Faith Like Potatoes." Thanks God!!

Thank You Abba Father for family and friends, and friends I don't even know yet. You've blessed me so much with people in my life. I could never have imagined to meet so many new friends from all over the world! My big shabby bucket overflows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank You Abba Father for givin me my new heart. Through it I feel incredible love, joy, peace, hope, passion...... all thanks to YOU! I will use it for your glory.

Thank You Lord for filling me uP with your WORD, for your visions, and your peace! Thank You for boldness, and truth and for speaking to me through rocks, lawn ornaments, toads, red clover, hummingbirds, altered mailboxes and internal errors. Things I could never have imagined. Thank you for the dream I had last night. Thanks for being in my ordinary making it soooo extraordinary.
Please keep chasing me. I'm not runnin anymore! I love ya God. With all my heart, all my soul, and all I've got. ~forever~

Hi Lea, boy did we get the rain this week also. Up to almost 8 inches as of last night.

You ask about the picture in my bedroom. I don't have a clue what it is called. My son found it near a dumpster while we were dropping off donations at the Salvation army store about 9 years ago. It was broken and laying there and he picked it up and ask 'Do you like this momma". I was like oh yea, it is so beautiful and a orginal old print too, not a reproduction. It has hung in my bedroom since the day we moved in here and it is my favorite. She is so sweet looking and has the biggest sweetest eyes. Sorry I wasn't much help in figuringout what the print is called.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

What a beautiful post! So inspiring! I wish I could have all the rain you are having! It's dry and dusty here. UGH! But... I still find the beauty in the teeny bit of rain we have had, just enough to blossom precious little flowers!

It's not raining here, the sun is shinning but it's a little cool.

Can I add my name to your post. Some of the things you've mentioned I am thankful for also - I'm talking about the ones that apply to me. I would love to be able to write like you and some of the others do.

You always lift my spirits.
From my heart to yours,
