Thankful Thursday - 6/18/09

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

It's Thankful Thursday. WOW! What a crazy busy week. This gives me a change to slow down, pause, and reflect on the many blessings in my life. Here, is my list of five......they can be serious or silly, big or small.....God honors them all.

1. I'm thankful for the stamina to work full-time, take a class, plus do all the other things I need and want to do. Especially ride my super fun Harley!

2. I'm thankful for praying friends. It's great to call my prayer warrior and know I'm covered!

3. I'm thankful for my wonderful husband. Yep.....he's in the top five again. He is doing his best to find us a home.

4. Thankful for having had cancer. Wait.....what???? I know.......but bear with me here. Through my experience and the friendships I made......I am indirectly touching a newly diagnosed woman whom I've never met. Her niece has been able to help her through hair loss and buying a wig, and understand what lies ahead. God used me to help someone I don't even know. Isn't that how His love works?

5. I'm thankful for the resources to help our children when they get in a bind.

That's my five......what are you thankful for today, This Day? Please leave me a comment and be sure to stop by TT's host, Sonya at Truth 4 the Journey and add your list.

Peace and Joy,

Romans 8:28 (NKJV) And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

A side note: We are placing a counter offer on a house today......please pray for us as we seek God's plan and purpose in this matter. Thank you for lifting us up before the throne.

Putting God in all decisions is a must and I see that you are doing just that. I hope that God's will is done for your home and in all you do.

I need you to pray...because you will understand...We are taking our first long journey on the motorcycle, I'm a little nervous and my mother isn't helping!!! Pray that I make the right decision before leaving out on the 27th.
God Bless

Will be praying about the house!

How cool that God is using you in the lives of others with cancer.

Have a great week!

Glad I came to visit today. Your number four really touched me. God's love DOES work that way. I'm so glad you are on the other side of your battle with cancer, too!


Please bless my sister with a house to live in. If this is the right home for them, let the seller accept their counter offer.
In Jesus name,

God Bless,
Sonya Lee

What kind of a Harley do you ride? I ride a Fatboy.

And....what kind of a class are you taking? I so would love to take a F.U.N. class on photography, not for a grade, just to learn.

I have noticed that your husband makes the top 5 a lot. Thats great. Wow you had cancer. That is bad but it is a blessing that you are using it to help someone else out.

Like your experience with cancer, God has allowed me many opportunities to come along side someone dealing with infertility. Thank You God that nothing in our lives is wasted. All things can be used to bring you glory.
Blessings ~ Lisa

I am glad I read your list today. It is amazing how God uses the adversity and our weaknesses to reach out to the lives of others. I pray for your family and the house and that all is carried out according to God's wonderful plan for you. In Jesus name, Amen.
