Thankful Thursday - 10/29/09

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Can you believe it? This is the last Thursday in October! Do you know what that means? No?? Well, let me just share with you. That means the next Thursday will be.... in November. ahahahaha I just crack myself up. Anyhoo, since it's Thursday that means it's time to join Sonya at Truth 4 the Journey and list five things for which I am thankful. They can be silly or serious, big or small because God honors them all.

1. I'm thankful for my wonderful husband. He is doing everything he can to make sure our new home is comfortable. God bless that man.

2. I'm thankful that another year has passed with a clean mammogram report. This is a huge milestone.

3. I'm thankful the kitchen cabinets and new counter top are installed. The appliances arrive today! I'll be cooking in my own kitchen again. woooohoooo!

4. I'm thankful for my job and my boss. He has been so understanding and flexible with my comings and goings these past few weeks as I've taken off to move, paint, and meet installers and deliveries. I have not worked one single Thursday or Friday this entire month.

5. I'm thankful that God is concerned with that which concerns us. Several weeks ago, we selected and paid for our new kitchen sink. After the installers cut the counter top and dropped in the sink I went to see their progress. GASP! That sink is the wrong color. Oh no. How did that happen? The stock person is the one who pulled it from the shelf for us. No worries. The husband took it back to the home improvement store for an exchange. They received one....that a shipment. God was definitely looking out for us. The right sink is in and it looks beautiful.

That's my list for this week. What are you thankful for today, This Day? Please leave me a comment here and be sure to hop on over to Sonya's to link up with your own list.

Peace and Joy,

1 Peter 1:24-25 (NIV)24For, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall,  25but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was preached to you.

Good Morning Susan, I am so thrilled for you and your husband about your new home. It's truly a blessing to have an understanding boss during these busy days and the biggest blessing of all is your good mammogram report. Praise the Lord! This Thanksgiving will be so exciting in your new home with your pretty new kitchen to work in. God bless.

What a great boss you have, as so many, would just not be so understanding.

I can't wait like all your other readers to see just what you new kitchen looks like!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Whew! Close call with the sink :-) Glad it got worked out. It's amazing the number of details that go into it, isn't it?!

Don't you love how God cares about each and every detail in our lives? Reading this gives all the more meaning to "everything including the kitchen sink!"

*high five* for the clean boobie squish.....I celebrate when I get one too, as I have had a few scares in the past. phew!

So happy God led me here this morning.....will be following you now.....but not in a creepy stalkerish way, :)
