Thankful Thursday….

This is my first Thankful Thursday post.  It seems a good thing to record things for which we are thankful.  A few years ago, when all looked bleak, I started a thankful journal.  I had to.  It was during a time when there was so much bad in my life, that I had to find those good things to thank the Lord for or I’d not have made it. 

So, here we go….

Philippians 4:6 is a life verse for me.

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

 Things for which I am thankful this Thursday…

my marriage is permanent, no matter what

clean air to breath…

I have hope in my Jesus for all my troubles…

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me…

I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus…

my children are healthy…

my husband has found some temporary work…

God is in control…

It’s going to be alright….

Those are my thoughts, I thank you my Creator God for all of these things. 


Now, go see what the other ladies are thankful for at Iris’ blog.


Have a blessed day!

Writing Cards & Letters

Hi Friends,

Christmas is nearly a month past. 

 Have you finished mailing your thank you notes?  I’ve still a few left to finish. 

Have you responded to those cards and letters you received at Christmas that you would like to answer?

This is a good time to get those notes sent.  It’s also a good time to think about who you’d like to bless with a Valentine message expressing your love or friendship.  They’re not just for sweethearts, you know.

I’ve finished making my Valentine’s cards.  I’m now writing the messages for my friends and loved ones.  They’ll be sent on February 1st. 

If you didn’t send a Christmas or New Year’s letter, why not think about sending a Valentine’s letter?  Any time is a good time to show someone you care.

God bless!
