It’s that time again. Time to sit down and concentrate fully on what God has done for me!
I do have to admit, it does make you a more gracious person when you can sit down on a regular basis and thank God for moving and working on your behalf. When you actually LOOK to see the things that God has done, and acknowledge them AND Him, you become a better person. My outlook is better. That is important for a better quality of life, and quality relationship with Christ.
I am thankful that even though Mike was sick and wasn’t able to go to his own family’s Thanksgiving, we were still able to go. The drive was long, but gorgeous and the kids did not fight down there OR back. YAY!
I am thankful that the crazy relatives did not seem quite so crazy on THIS day. And the day was peaceful.
I will be even more thankful when Mike’s cousin, our favorite, moves back from Florida.
I am thankful that even though I couldn’t afford that AMAZING brisket, I was able to get a very tasty, adequate roast. And I didn’t burn it. Or poison anyone with it.
I am thankful for wonderful friends who helped to make the weekend one of FUN when the holiday was over.
I’m thankful I was OFF for 4 days in a ROW! YAY! I’m so tired….
Head on over to Eph 28:10 for more Thankful Thursday posts! You’ll be glad you did. http://www.eph2810.com/?page_id=459
On a personal note, because I’m not in the habit of vaguely posting about people without saying their name, Kelly, I am still praying for you. I am praying that God will move tremendously in your life. He will cause GOOD things to come your way to restore the joy you have lost. I pray that your Christian walk will grow STRONG and CLOSE with Christ and that you will be a great Christian influence over this new group of friends. The joy of the Lord will bubble up and flow over everyone that comes into contact with you, online and in real life. Lord I ask that make Your presence FULLY known to Kelly and give her direction, and peace, and love, and unspeakable joy. In Jesus name.
Because I don’t vaguely blog.
