Thankful Thursday


I am thankful with a grateful heart today for...

God's hand and provision - only it can satisfy and be completely what we need! He answered a huge prayer last night and I can't tell you till Sunday, so you will have to come back!!! :) It's all good, very good. It still blows me away! I got to call my mom to tell her and I could tell she was just so overwhelmingly excited for us. We have been obedient to God's calling in many ways over the 6 years we have been married, but never have we seen His hand more clearly than during the past 2 months. And to clear up rumors, no we are not pregnant! :) Although, if you would agree to approach the throne on my behalf regarding that, I would appreciate it.

Today is my last day at the landscape company. I am sad...but I am excited about what the future holds - see below. We will be enjoying some Mexican for lunch today, because I so enjoy it!!! :)

It's still birthday month! I am eagerly counting the days till my birthday, because I Love Birthdays...I love cake too, can I just say that? The working out thing might hinder that, but do you honestly believe I will let that happen? What kind of world would this be with no cake?

It's a great day for loving Him. Enjoy His ever-present-ness today. Happy Thankful Thursday!

Since you are so excited, it much have to do with the ministry of your husband :). I will try to remember to check back next week.

I hope you had a great last day at your old company today.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week.

May God continue to bless you and your family.
