Merci Beaucoup Lord Jesus

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey


Greetings and Holykisses,

It's Thankful Thursday; which has become one of my favorite days of the week!
Without further ~adou~ here's my random 5 blessings.

1. I'm thankful for the rain! It's been pouring for days here,... and even though the ground is
completely saturated; I'm lovin it! Our pond is overflowing, the puddleducks are happy,
and hey; you can't mow in the rain! Yipppy!! It's very lush and green here for
September. Don't be fooled by my banner, thinking it looks like Autumn.
That photo was last year's! heehee

2. I'm thankful to be free in Christ. Living life for God rather than striving
to be a people pleaser is what I want!!!

3. I'm thankful it's getting easier because of #2, to live life transparently.
No one's perfect and everyone makes mistakes... and sins. Pretending
my way through life was exhausting!

4. I'm thankful that I finished Ezra and loved it. I love Ezra!!! And now,
I'm loving Nehemiah!!! Just started reading Neh today. I'm smiling
while I write this because I realized I'd already put Neh 8:10 on
my latest blog banner!!! No coincidence I'm sure! I can hardly
wait to see what God's gonna reveal to me! I tell ya, His word...
is so alive. I'm so thankful how He speaks to us through
His living Word. If you don't pick up a bible and read
everyday, I highly encourage you. It's something
you will never ever regret.

5. I'm thankful God showed me His amazing mercy and grace this week.
He brought me through all life's ups and downs. From lovin me through
my vanity issues, to holding my hand at the doctor's office. He's forgiven
my sins, and blessed me beyond measure with a loving family
and incredible friends. He's calmed
my fears, and has never left my side.
My God's good!

I am in agreement with your list this week, particularly #2. Freedom in Christ is so amazing. I've just learned that it also means I'm free to fail because He will pick me up and help me get going again!

Love,

Thanks for stopping by at my blog ! Not sure about the hangers what they would look like , just a little hook ? Iam sure you could make some using any type of wire!The manequin , not sure either what size , I have wire dress forms. The little clips ,not sure either what style you want but some times checking out the hardware store , if you dont like the finish you can change it with paint or age them. Hope you have a blessed day today !

Once I got over the feeling of "I failed again" I found freedom in Christ. I used to run and hide for a while when I failed but now I just admit it and pray for forgiveness.
