Thankful Thursday - 5/28/09

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Y-A-Y! It's Thankful Thursday. The time each week I stop to shout to the world God's blessings in my life. They can be serious or silly, big or small....God honors them all.

1. I'm so thankful for the free gift of salvation thru my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. With Christ, I have a future and hope. Thank You, Jesus for giving up Your life so I could live.

2. I'm thankful that this week I passed the three year mark since being diagnosed with breast cancer.

3. I'm thankful for a job that affords me flexibility in my work schedule so I can spend some much needed time with my wonderful husband. His day's off are Thursday and Friday and he works second shift.....so we don't spend much face time. This summer I'm permitted to work extended hours and take off every other Friday. Pretty sweet deal.

4. I'm thankful for food, clothing, shelter, transportation. I am so richly blessed.

5. I'm thankful for the upcoming weekend. I'm headed to Nashville to visit with family. A mini-vaca for us. It will be packed full in the short time allotted to us.

That's my five this week. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you're thankful for today, This Day. Be sure to stop over at TT's host, Sonya at Truth 4 the Journey and see what others are thankful for.

Peace and Joy,
Susan


Acts 20:24 (NIV) However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace.

What a blessing on the 3 year with previous breast cancer. As well as the joy you must be having with having some extra time with your hubs on Friday's. Thank You Father.

We also love flexible jobs and are thankful that for the past 21 years the Lord has provided just that.

Congrats on being cancer free for 3 years! Woohoo!

Love, love, love Tennessee! Have a wonderful time. My daddy was from TN and we loved going to visit him there after he retired "back home". He went to be with Jesus in 2000 and we've only made one trip there since then. He was from the McMinnville area. Familiar with it?

Oh, and Jubisista is a word Scoots started using to describe those of us who hit the big 5-0 on our last birthday :-) It's our Year of Jubilee!
