Thankful Thursday and 30 x 5 Update

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Welcome to another week of Thankful Thursday. This challenge is to list five (5) things you are thankful for. This is sponsored by Sonya at Truth 4 the Journey. Stop on over to her spot and read the other participant's thankfulness. I promise you will have plenty of food for thought and be richly blessed. I'm guessin that you will have an "ahha" moment and think....yep, I'm thankful for that too. So here's my five for the week:

Easter - The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus who loved you (and me) enough to suffer the cross and give us hope.

My husband - Yep, he's in my top five again this week. He has labored so very hard to get us moved and make sure everything is functioning at the rental.

My friend, Jess - For giving up her Saturday to help me pack.

Restaurants - Bear with me here..... My cookware and pantry items are still packed, so I haven't been cooking. We're eating out a lot.

My boss - He's given me so much flexibility in my work schedule to accommodate the move.

That's my five. If you're not familiar with why we celebrate Easter, please investigate it further. It's a tremendous testimony of love and hope. Find out today, This Day, how One man can change your future, your destiny.

30 x 5 for 2 weeks - There were days when I really didn't want to do my 30 minutes, but having about 60 other women as accountability partners gave me the incentive I needed. Thank you Linda @ 2nd Cup of Coffee for hosting this great challenge. Be sure to stop by and see how other "Challengettes" feel about their two weeks.

I last posted an update on my progress Friday night, April 3. Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday were challenges in themselves with moving from one house to another. Even tho I was not able to set aside 30 solid minutes, I averaged over 10K steps per day on my step counter. Plus all the bending, squatting, lifting, and stretching that is required when packing and moving.

I have appreciated both of these challenges: Thankful Thursday and 30 x 5. They provide motivation, personal growth, purpose, and camaraderie. Challenge yourself, you'll be thankful you did.

Peace and Joy,

Acts 4:10 (NIV) then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed.

How wonderful that your move is going good...I also loved that you added the tag at the end of Thankful Thursday inviting all to learn about our Christ's love and mercy for all who believe and call upon him...Who knows who is going to read that and come to know God...
