Thankful Thursday - 5/21/09

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

This is the time each week that I pause to thank God for His many blessings. Sonya over at Truth 4 the Journey sponsors this each week. Thank you, Sonya. The list is of five things you are thankful for. They can be silly or serious, big or small.....God honors them all.

1. I'm thankful for my wonderful husband. Yep.....he made the top five again this week. He is an awesome man of God, honorable, and compassionate.

2. I'm thankful for my blogger friend, Jessica at Called to Serve. This young woman has a heart for God and her husband. She is so enthusiastic about her walk w/the Lord and being organized. She introduced me to this wonderful website: A Virtuous Woman, a Proverbs 31 Ministry. If you're not familiar with it.....go check it out. There is TONS of information there.

3. I'm thankful for free online Bible studies and seminars. The Hem of HIS Garment has free lessons and eBooks for just about any topic.

4. I'm thankful for spending last Saturday with my dear friend, Kelly. We live about 2 1/2 hours apart and don't see each other often. It was good to catch up and share hearts.

5. I'm thankful for This Day! The beautiful sunrise, the fragrance of honeysuckle in the air, and the roar of my Harley as I rode to work this morning. :)

It's so easy to get caught up in the day to day struggles of life that we sometimes overlook God's blessings. What are you thankful for today, This Day? Please leave me a comment and be sure to stop by Sonya's to see how God is blessing others.

Peace and Joy,
Susan


Psalm 30:12 (NIV) that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever.

I come away always encouraged that others are aware and seeking the blessings and presence of our Lord.

Lovingly,

Great things to be thankful! I am thankful for the beautiful weather here too! My daughter has her last day of preschool picnic today and it is going to be in the 80's for the second day in a row. Amaizing for Michigan in May!

We are enjoying blue skies, sun and a nice breeze today - it's lovely to soak up God's beautiful world.

That is such an inspiring list! Thanks so much for posting it. I will check out the blogs you've mentioned here.

Another great list. I am so glad that I stopped by today. It is a shame that some people don't appreciate what they have in life and don't give thanks to God. A girl that lives near us rides a big harley. I will think of this post next time I see her.

Thanks for sharing! I’ll have to check out that Proverbs 31 ministry website :) I’m thankful today for a lot of things! One being that I’m meeting my girlfriend after work to share with each other… we are both currently doing a study on the Psalms of Ascent (Beth Moore study book). Have a wonderful rest of the day! :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Okay, I have to ask, doesn't riding the motorcycle mess up your hair...especially since you're riding to work? You look gorgeous in your photo! If I put a helmet on (or even just a hat), my hair would be flat for the rest of the day!

Blessings to you!

Leslie: That's a great question. I wear a bandanna under my helmet, then when I get to work I fluff it up w/a flat iron & products. I wear my Harley clothes to/from work and pack my "Barbie" clothes in the saddlebags then change when I get to the office. It's definitely a transformation.

Lisa said...

Thank You for sharing that site! I'm definitely going to check it out!
Blessings ~ Lisa

What a great list. Kind of caught me of guard about the Harley;) I am thankful for online bible studies as well.
