Greetings and Holykisses,
Another Thursday rollin in. I just can't help but love the routine of Counting blessings and Journaling them every Thursday. Not that we shouldn't every day, but I really like "thankful Thursdays," as they've somehow become.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 "In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
In EVERYthing give thanks. There's good and bad everywhere. Sometimes circumstances stink, sometimes we hurt, we're sad, and have troubles. But even in those times; give thanks.
3 years ago today, my siblings and I lost our Mom. There's a part of me that still wants to feel sorry for Lea today, but instead, I give thanks that we once had the best Momma that God could have ever given us. Today in all things I give thanks.
I'm thankful that I have assurance and know that she's in heaven today. I don't wonder if she "made it" to heaven; she believed and trusted Jesus as her Lord and Saviour and I know I'll see her again.
I'm thankful my son called just to see if I wanted him to bring me some lunch.
I'm thankful for the daffodils that are all ready to bloom; even though the weatherman's calling for a snowy mix tonight. I don't "want" it to snow anymore and I'm more than ready for spring. -- But I give thanks for the daffodil blooms and the hope that Spring really is on it's way.
I'm grateful for my friend who called "just to check on me." ;)
I'm thankful that I get to live on this little farm in Arkansas. I love my quirky life that's surrounded by Ozark mountains. I love sneakin up on armadillos and checkin to see if a possums in the chicken coop at night. I love our pond that's full of catfish and perch.. and croakin bullfrogs. I love biscuits n gravy, beans n cornbread, pickled beets and a side of fried okra! Thank you Lord for our country way of life.
I'm thankful the puddleducks got brave and have made a routine of going to On Dragonfly pond every evening at dusk. They've been doing this for around a week now. I'm thankful the coyotes haven't gotten them and thankful for all their happy -quacking. They're music to my ears!
I'm thankful to have read through another book of the bible; "Luke," and I'm now getting to know "St. John." Reading the gospels; especially this time of year, is growing my faith and making my relationship with Christ even stronger. I'm sooooo thankful of that. I'm amazed how God reveals Himself to me through His word.
I'm thankful for another divine meeting this week. I love how that keeps happening.
I'm just a simple country gal,...with a GREAT BIG GOD! And I'm so thankful for what He does in my life.
Thanks God for being with me... always. Thanks for dying on the cross for me. Thanks for all the blessings you lavish me with.
I love you.
