Thankful Thursday


I love the ability to offer up gratitude to our heavenly Father for everything this day has yet to bring. Today is yesterday's tomorrow. We don't get any do overs, second chances, instant replays, or mulligans. Nope today is all we have and even each minute and second are precious.

I am joining in with Greg at Greg's General Store today for Thankful Thursday and here are the list of things I am giving thanks for today.

1. Steve has a job that for now keeps him at home instead of commuting 2 hours to the local office.

2. That Kailee brought home a stray dog and we had the opportunity to share the love before returning him to the animal shelter because he is obviously one serious lost dog who is missing his home. If no one claims him, we are taking him.

3. I am thankful that I have a wonderful teenage daughter whose main challenge in life is talking and texting too much on the phone, but not into drugs, trouble, running with the wrong crowd and even fighting with her parents. We'd rather have issues with the phone.

4. I am thankful for all the books I've been blessing to review and then pass along to some wonderful readers and followers of both my blogs. It has shown me to literally not judge a book by it's cover because I would have passed up some opportunities to read some amazing books, and get to know authors on a very personal level. Check out today's review by clicking here. There are still giveaways to be entered in, just click on the titles on the right hand side of my blog once you get there. Enter them all if you'd like. I love giving away FREE stuff!

5. The ability to share great and heartwarming stories on my blog ARK for God or Acts of Random Kindness for God. I believe in the power of one and today's story will literally move you to tears, click here to be a part of the power.

Thank you to Greg for being blessed by God to offer our thanks to God today through this wonderful post. I am blessed by everyone who stops by and leaves me a comment. It's like a friend stopping by to say Hi!

My dear sister,

Your list of thank you's are heart touching! So glad your hubby has the job that keeps him close and not commuting for now. I pray the person who the dog belongs to finds him quickly at the shelter and if not then I pray you can have him.

All the thank you's you shared touched my heart. You are precious to the LORD!!

I love you!

Dearest Kat, Love your grateful heart and I am so grateful for you today. Your writing shines with love for our Jesus and what a blessing that He met the needs for your beloved with a new job.
Have a wonderful day and weekend-we're headed camping tomorrow.

Love your thankful list!! I too am thankful for teenagers who only use their phone too much, if that's the worst thing they do, I can handle that!!
