Thankful Thursday

Greetings and Holykisses,

I'm writing this beautiful ~Thankful Thursday,~ from our business. Wouldn't you know, logging into our work computer, my brain suddenly forgot all my passwords.* Finally, my sometimers moment passed, and I remembered how to get into the shabby olde potting shed. lol --and; thankfully I did manage to bring my bible and notebook with me today! I'm happy about that because I came across this scripture I really wanted to share!!

Psalm 145: 1-5

"I will extol thee, my GOD, O king;
and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
EVERY DAY, will I bless thee;
and I will praise thy name
forever and ever.
Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
and His greatness is unsearchable.
One generation shall praise thy works to another,
and shall declare thy mighty acts.
I will speak of the glorious honour
of thy majesty, and of
thy wondrous works."

God's word reminds us to share Him and tell what He's doing in our lives. -- and I must say, I love Thankful Thursday's because I love the UNITY of His people coming together with thankful hearts and and an attitude of gratitude!

I'm blessed to have this circle of friends who love God and love talking about Him!!! Brothers and sisters who share and DECLARE His mighty acts!!

The purpose of Sonya's meme on Thankful Thursday is to share 5 random blessings. Here are my mine:

1. Mike and Trent had to haul a vehicle this morning, so
they left out before we opened for the day. As I unlocked
the doors at 8 am.... I was happily surprised that "Myguy"
had been there and turned the heater on for me
and had my pumpkin spice
candle LIT on the desk!! I'm so blessed to have a
caring husband who shows me loving kindnesses.
I started the day with a warm office, and warm heart!

2. I'm thankful that our shabby olde farmhouse, is now
"mouse-proofed." The last couple weeks, we've had UNwanted
visitors, and honestly it was starting to make me a little
crazy! In all confession: My sudden outbursts, and moments of temporary insanity, were not pretty.* -- I know crawling under our house with spray foam was
NOT on Myguy's list of favorite things to do; but he did it
anyways. I'm so thankful; and hopefully the mice are gone, and once again we have a HAPPY HOME!

3. I'm thankful our son Tony got a new job working for my
brother!! We couldn't be happier for him and really believe
really good things are on his horizon!!

4. I'm thankful that just moments ago, a man stopped
in here and as we sat talking, God gave me an open door and
we had church right here!! It was
incredible Yall! I just feel blessed ALL OVER!
It was a GOD THING!
I still have goosebumps.

5. This past week, our oven croaked, and it's not
very old. I think we bought it 4 years ago?
The repairman came out yesterday
and the baking element had
broken in two! He had one on his truck, and replaced
it but that didn't fix it. Something else happened to it
as a result of the element going out. He ordered
thee other part, and it should be here next Monday.
It's true that you don't realize what you have
until you lose it. I'm thankful however, that
it's still under warranty, so we won't have
to pay for it. We didn't even remember that
we'd purchased an extended warranty.
Thank you Lord!

I hope you all take time to count your blessings today!
No matter what your circumstances, God's still in control.

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey
"PRAISE YE the Lord. Praise
the LORD, O my soul.
While I live will I praise
the LORD: I will sing praises
unto my GOD while I have any being."
Psalm 146 1-2

What a beautiful day you've had and so many blessings. I'm really happy for you especially that you got rid of that "critter" trying to take up residence in your house.
We have a thing that plugs into the wall called Riddex and we haven't had anything (praise God) since we started using it. No mice, no crickets, no spiders, only a few ants. Evidently it doesn't work on ants. It's has something to do with the electricity that scares them away. That's a great big Thank you God for me.

May the rest of your day be beautiful,
Luv u,
