I am so grateful to my sweet friend over at A Place Called Simplicity for starting Thankful Thursday. What a blessing it has been for my family to make a conscious decision each Thursday to be thankful to God for all He has done in our lives. And there is so much.
Thursday morning is a precious time for me and my kids–they know that Thursday means devoting our prayer time to giving thanks to God. They each come prepared, knowing what they are thankful to God for. Oh to hear them each expressing it to their Father in heaven with such sweet innocence is such a joy to my heart. There can be nothing sweeter.
Therefore, since we are receiving a Kingdom that CANNOT be shaken, let us be thankful and so worship God with reverence and awe. Heb 12:28
I am so thankful for so many things. My heart is overflowing. What did we ever do to deserve the goodness of God in our lives? I will never understand.
~~ A husband who treasures me.
~~ Children that are the apple of my eye.
~~ Friends who love me just the way I am.
~~ A place we can call home.
~~ Food that nourishes us, and fresh water to drink.
~~ Manna for each new day. We are never, ever without. How He makes the finances stretch!
~~ Dreams and desires which are God-breathed into my heart.
~~ A computer to keep in touch with my family (who I miss till it hurts) overseas.
~~ The absolute privilege of being able to teach my children at home.
~~ Flannel sheets to keep the bed so cozy.
~~ Thrifty places to shop.
~~ The freedom to worship God!
~~ Friday nights when I have the night off cooking–hubby takes over.
So much to be thankful for, precious friends. God is SO good to us!
