Thankful Thursday!

Greetings and holykisses!
Thanks for visiting the Shed today!!!

It's a rainy... stormy morning here; so just a quick post and hopefully I can get this published before having to unplug the computer again!

First I have to share, that I got a couple emails that said they were hoping I was feeling better. For the life of me I couldn't figure out what they were talkin about? Re-reading my blog, I think they were referring to those "reduced" feelings I shared. lol And remember I was trying to find a word.... and just grabbed the one that was on the side of my marked down plants. When I woke up that morning I was just feelin a little "off," but those feelings quickly faded once I got into the word. Some people call it, "waking up on the wrong side of the bed?" lol

Anyways... today is Thankful Thursday and I've been counting my blessings. It's been quite a week to say the least! Here are just a few random blessings......

I'm thankful for the storms. The thunder mesmerizes me!!!-- And it thundered throughout the night. It was wonderful! Of course our dogs try to crawl inside my pockets but... that's okay!

I'm thankful our son sold his house! God's timing is perfect! He sooo needed to sell that house and in doing so, a weight was lifted from him. He's now all moved out and moving forward. We're so grateful!!

Thankful for my families health. God's been healing a couple family members and we give Him praise!

I'm thankful for technology, and the tool it can be for growth. I've listened to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John on my Ipod this past week. Discovering audio books has opened this beautiful door for my soul!! I've also been studying being a woman after God's heart. All of this while mowing, weedeating, and keeping my hands very busy! What a blessing!

I'm thankful for time with my Hubs who is my number one earthly priority in this life.
We're even planning a days get away together soon. To have adventures together after 27 years of marriage... is bliss! Thanks God!

I'm thankful to be a child of God even though I'm 40something. A child of God! God's girl! I tell ya, I wouldn't go back to my old life for nothing. If God ain't in it, I don't want it.

I'm thankful for all the people God's put on my path. All of you inside this computer... and those I meet in my everyday. I'm so blessed by you all! Some of you have blogs of your own, and some of you leave comments that truly lift and build uP others. Some of you are prayer warriors. I learn from you, and am so blessed by each and every one of you. If you're here and reading this right now... I thank you for being a part of my life! I'm praying God blesses you all over today... inside n out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks God for blessing me with these wonderful friends.
Thankyou for all these blessings and sooooooooo much more.

Have a wonderful day today!
God's good!

Oh so true to be a child of God, that is a blessing everyone should know about.

We all are blessed in many ways even when we walk through those storms. See how many folks were here for you and you didnt even know you were ill.... "just marked down" and we were here for you. Golly, just think if it was something major... heck, folks would be sittin' on your door step and if you just point me the way, I will feed Lynda... :)

God does move quickly at times and I am glad he worked quickly in your son's life to sell the house.

Praying for safe keeping during the storms. We will be getting hit probably tomorrow.

I was walking through your photos again and saw the church in the mist... I did hear them singing...

God's Peace with you and yours.

Lea, It was another beautiful post from you. Even though I have only been visiting you for a couple of weeks now you really have blessed me already. I know you are "God's Girl" and I desire to be the same.

I am returning the same prayers to you......I hope God blesses you all over.

Hugs, Debbi

What a GREAT TT POST. I can't tell you what a blessing is was to me.
Your testimony of your love for God just radiates in your writings.
I am like you so thankful for my blogging friends, and I am thankful for YOU!
I love the fact that you and your dh take time to get away and be refreshed.

Such a happy post, love it.

I am so with you Sister in the fact that if God isn't it, I don't want it. We've had a few lovely butterflies the past couple of days and it has reminded me that I am a new creature and the old is gone. PRAISE HIM!

Love to you,
