Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday...what a week to be thankful! Warning...my list may be long. I'm thankful...

  1. that my parents were in no danger from the explosion in their town.
  2. that they were not evacuated.
  3. that EMS was still able to come and help get my dad to the hospital with his hurting back.
  4. that the back problem turned out to be just muscular, and not skeletal.
  5. that they are safe at home with some great pain killers and muscle relaxers for dad.
  6. that my hubby is so sweet!
  7. that VBS has gone wonderfully, 38 children have heard about Jesus as the Way, the Truth, and the Life. 38 is awesome considering we have usually around 10 in Sunday School!
  8. that VBS is almost over! (It's a great week, but exhausting!)
  9. that we have clothes on our backs (and in our closets), food in the pantry & refrigerator, a home to shelter us, comfy beds to sleep on, cars to get us to and fro, gas to go in those cars, and so much more than we need.
  10. that I have great friends who help me get ready for VBS. I couldn't get ready every day without you Stephanie & Shannon! Thanks girls!!!
  11. that the forecast is calling for a chance of rain, we need it!
  12. that my cat is finally showing some kindness towards my children. (He was my baby for 3 years before we had Abbigail...it's taken 7 years for him to get over it! :o))
  13. that I have a bit of a break this afternoon...I think I'm going to go lay down on some ice and see if I can get my back to loosen up!
  14. that God shows me His mercies new every morning, noon, and night...I need them CONSTANTLY!
  15. that God has given me so many gifts, and continues to bless me.
  16. that my birthday is Saturday, I know I will at least get out of cooking one meal that day!
  17. that my parents are not going out of town like planned next week, so the kiddos and I are going to go see them!
  18. that Abbigail has an eye doctor appointment on Monday, hopefully this is the cause of her headaches.
  19. that Andrew has learned how to whistle...really, I'm thankful....at least I'm trying to be ;o)
  20. that Bethany is so darn cute...with her attitude sometimes it's a good thing! I love how she says "drink" She says "wink" instead...how cute!!! I love it when she starts singing praise songs out of the blue (her version of course!)

I love this list. It's funny how when we start reflecting on all we are thankful for that the list grows and grows. Luther was right to explain that "daily bread" includes everything that has to do with the support and needs of the body...when seen in that light, what is there that we aught not be thankful for?

Saw your comment to my sweet friend Anita at Ask a Lutheran and thought I'd drop by! I'm a former LCMS campus ministry convert who married a son of a Pentecostal preacher! LOL It DOES get interesting around here! *wink*

Sounds like you've had a hard and/or busy week...praying for some "slowing down" next week. Blessings!
