Thankful Thursday


It's that time of the week again!! Where does the time go?? My goal is to blog at least 3-4 times per week but the month of April and May have been so busy with school, church and family. Oh well, priorities are a must! Maybe, I can meet my goal next week or next month. In any event, I am here now and that's all the counts!! May the Lord bless each of you even when your individual goals fall short. Realize He has a plan for you that will probably differ from your own. At least that is how it has been in my experience. I haven't regretted it to this day!! I don't think you will either! Move over to the passenger seat and let God drive for a while! "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;" Prov 3:5 This seems to be the verse the Lord keeps bringing to mind this week. Here is the list of the things I am thankful for this week:
  • I am thankful that Lord brings Scripture to mind and to life for me. That He cares enough about me to show me His word in many different ways!! AWESOME!!
  • I am thankful for my hubby and son
  • I am thankful my brother-in-law and his girlfriend made it here safely today -- we're heading to the beach for a quick weekend Friday morning
  • I am thankful that I have friends that need me (it is soooo nice to be needed) -- Praying for you -- you know who you are!!!
  • I am thankful for my church and our women's ministry
  • I am thankful for my garden as it is starting to bloom -- my little guy goes out everyday to see how big the plants grew overnight --it's so cute!!
  • I am thankful that my little fella made lunch for me at pre-school yesterday -- he made a personal pan pizza, salad, sprite and ice cream with sprinkles -- He served it to me and even cleaned up my place!!! How sweet and wonderful being a mommy is to me!! Thank you God for motherhood
  • I am thankful for my mom, mother-in-law, Mamall, and great-grandma!! --love you all -- plus all the other ladies out there that are special to me (Trish - you're more like a big sis!!)
  • I am thankful for all the Lord has allowed me to see, do and experience in my life -- including the "not-so-good" stuff because it has brought me to this exact moment in my life!

Have a great day - a blessed weekend and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the Mommy's out there!
