Thankful Thursday and 30 x 5 Update

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

It's time for Thankful Thursday! How sad it would be to not be able to come up with a short list of five things for which to be thankful. Here's my list for the week:

  1. My dad! He has taught me so much and as we grow older, our friendship strengths.
  2. Cell phones. I know....right? It used to be so expensive to stay in touch with family and friends long distance......cell phones have made it affordable.
  3. Christian Radio. nuf said!
  4. Distance Ministries. Charles Stanley, Beth Moore, David Jeremiah, etc., all have ministries where they reach across the miles into the homes and hearts of millions.
  5. Cyber-friends. They challenge us, encourage us, teach us, pray for us, and love us. Bless each of you for your friendship.
That's my five today, This Day. What are you thankful for?

I was so busy yesterday that I didn't get a chance to update my 30 x 5 challenge from Linda @ 2nd cup of coffee. I'm definitely an over achiever but I was reading on another blog recently (when I locate it, I'll link up) that she's running three miles a day and that is only enough to maintain her present weight. Another challenge for me? Absolutely! So yesterday I did my 30 minute walk and worked out w/my personal trainer, Gilad. My step counter total by bedtime was over 13,000. You read that right! Remember, I'm moving around a lot in the evenings packing for the big move. Also, I don't wear my step counter during my evening workout. We're half-way done with the challenge. I'm lovin it.

Peace and Joy,

1 John 4:11 (NIV) 11Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

Funny you mention cell phones. Earlier I left home without mine and really needed to make one important call while I was out. Hesitantly, I went in a Hallmark card shop and they could not have been nicer when I asked to use their bs. phone. Reminds me of the "olden" days!
