Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful for…

A husband who loves me unconditionally

The sound of the bus outside my window, knowing that within seconds my youngest will be crashing through the door to shower me with love and hugs

Hearts that magically appear in the bathroom window as I emerge from the steamy shower… put there by a 12 year old with a heart of gold herself

A young woman who gives of herself every Sunday to lead the altos on our worship team

Church leadership that is not afraid to stand for Truth without compromise

Parents who brought me up in the Lord, and prayed faithfully as I rebelled, and then returned to work out my own salvation with fear and trembling

A secret sister who has ministered to my heart already… and the year has just begun!

An accountability partner who is faithful to pray for me and with me… and kick me in the butt when I need it… who knows my heart and loves me just the same

Friends who are more like family than any I’ve ever known before. To quote Noah… “I thought you said we were having company for dinner… this is just family!”

My best friend of all… my faithful Redeemer. He purchased me with His blood, He healed me with His love, He keeps me with His grace… He showers me with mercy. I’d be lost without Him in so many ways. I love You, Lord!

“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever!”

Psalm 106:1
