Thankful Thursday


Ah another week has come and gone and it's time to put a bit of perspective on things. Time to reflect on the blessings that have come my way this week. If you haven't participated in Thankful Thursday and would like to, hop on over to Sonya's blog at Truth 4 the Journey, pick up the picture, write your own post and come back to her site and link yours there.

1. I am thankful for being wise enough to take time out of my day when I hear God speak to me, and heed His words. I am thankful to be able to hear His voice, but only if I am willing to listen.

2. I am thankful for my hubby, who has made an awesome dad to our kids. He is not only a great father but a step father as well to my oldest daughter. I often wondered when I married this man, just how he would be as a father to our kids. God is amazing, because He has blessed our family so well with Steve.

3. I am thankful to my blogging community to provide an outlet not only for being able to jot down things from my heart, but God's wisdom as well. I think we work well together and He is such an awesome boss to work for!

4. I am grateful for my ability to have my family that teaches me the simplest ways to continue to express love and gratitude for one another. Sometimes, its the way they will hunt down the neighbors dogs for hours cause they got out and would hate to have them return and be sad. So they scour the neighborhood for hours, return the dogs home and fix the fence. Nothing asked in return, just thinking of others instead of themselves. We need more examples on that in our days.

5. My cat Moo. I will blog about her soon, but she keeps me sane. She keeps my blood pressure way down and constantly keeps me laughing. Reminds me to be like a child a whole lot more.

Kat,

Oh, what precious children you have and a delightful husband. God is the glue, correct? !

Love to you and get with me for the ice cream recipe as soon as you get your freezer. It is de-lish!

Lovingly,
Yolanda

Awesome list and I never get tired reading your post for TT's. That's what we need is to have a thankful heart always for the Lord. Sister Christy made me laugh with her question, "You have a cat named "Moo"?" It reminds me of Chick-Fil-A with the cow as their logos, but everything in the restaurant is all about the chicken! :) God bless.

This is my first visit to you/your site! Being thankful for the gifts of kindness in your children really struck a beautiful note for me. Taking a lesson from children always brings me back to the sweet innocence of that act of kindness. Thank you for sharing. ~ linda

I am thankful for the ministry of spirit led blogs! And I thin kyoru name , Heart 2 Heart, sums up the way you flow through the various sites, showing an interest in the thoughts and feeling of others.

Thank you for commenting on my last post concerning my struggles with the church. But you will see that I deleted it. I really felt that God thought it was self -indulgent at this point.

SO I put the first one I felt led to write this afternoon! That's what I mean by spirit led!
