Thankful Thursday - 4/30/09

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

This is the time each week where I list five things for which I am thankful. Silly or serious, big or small, God honors them all. :)

1. I'm thankful for all the wonder recipes I've found on my blog peeps sites. I'm definitely a Foodnetwork junkie, but I love getting recipes that you've tried, tweaked, and share.

2. I'm thankful for my blog peeps who, through their own writings, have encouraged me to live my own legacy of comfort, peace, and love in my home no matter the circumstance. A special thanks to Robin for setting such a wonderful example for all of us.

3. I'm thankful for the beautiful weather and the thousands of people God brought to Blessing of the Bikes on Sunday.

4. The amazing power of God's grace. At Blessing of the Bikes, you see grown men, donned in leathers, tattoos, scruffy beards, and biker club colors with heads bowed holding hands in prayer.

5. I'm thankful for the end of another semester. Y-I-P-P-E-E-E-E!! I turned in my final project Tuesday. Now I have about 45 days before summer semester starts. What to do? What to do?

That's my list for the week. What are you thankful for today, This Day? Count your blessings, name them one by one.....see what God has done.

Peace and Joy

Job 19:25 (NIV) I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end He will stand upon the earth.

Congratulations on finishing the semester!!
Loved your thankful list.

I am so thankful for my hands. I tried to imagine what it would be like to not have any. My heart gets so ful with gratitude for my Father in Heaven and His Son, my Savior.
Sunshine and smiles!

Hey, Susan! Just a quick note from the hotel lobby to say thanks for the comment. I read your posts really quickly, but I enjoyed it!

45 days of playing outside! LOL Seriously, now that Spring/Summer is finally in your neck of the woods, take advantage of it! Those 45 days will be gone before you know it, stuck in a classroom again.
