Thankful Thursday


Oh my sweetness, I am just thrilled it's Thursday again - I want to continue to find joy in all things and typing out my thankfuls is part of that. Without further ado...

I am thankful for Love. Love from the Father through the Son and active as the Holy Spirit. I wouldn't be anywhere without it.

I am thankful for Friends. New Friends at that. I long for intimacy and depth in friendship and praise the Lord I saw a light into that dark tunnel last night.

I am thankful for vacation - it's just about two weeks away!!

I am thankful for mission and ministry - the two go hand in hand and I am excited to see all that God does in the life of my husband while in Africa. Next Thursday I will be typing this Thankful from home while my husband prepares for his flight that afternoon. He will be gone for 17 days!

I am thankful for freedom. For all those who serve in our military and defend our country, and for all Christians who lost their lives defending the name of Christ...I am truly grateful.

For more Thankful Thursdays, go to Sting my Heart!

Love,

Karen

Wow, Karen! I'll keep your husband in prayer. I'll also pray for you at home for 17 days without him! How wonderful that he is sharing the Good News with the people of Africa!

Vacation is a good thing! We took a small one and it really helped to get out of the house!

Blessings~
