Grateful Friday


I am grateful that I completely feel that the LORD is with me, despite my circumstances.

I am grateful that with each day that I'm given, I have a chance to speak love into the lives of others.

I'm grateful for beautiful sunshine, warmer temperatures and the stunningly gorgeous fall leaves.

I'm so thankful for my daughter - she is a treasure and a joy.  I'm so proud of her.

I'm grateful that hard times pass in time and that with time comes healing.  I'm thankful for healing.

I'm thankful for the support and love of my Dad - I absolutely love it when he says, "Everything is going to be alright, don't worry."  Thanks, Dad.

I'm thankful for worship music and the Scriptures that give me so much comfort, especially when I'm hurting.

I will be ever grateful for my bestest friend who never misses an opportunity to defend me, love me and care for me.  How did I ever deserve such grace?  I don't think I'll ever know.

I'm grateful for hours of conversation, loving conversation.  Talking things through is so valuable and I'm thankful for the opportunity to continue to build relationship even through the most awful of times.

I'm thankful that the LORD created me just as I am.

I'm grateful for memories...lots and lots of good, happy, funny, wonderful memories.

I'm grateful that we get to take the weekend for some fun down in Oregon - Baruch HaShem!

'Do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'

~Isaiah 41:10

I'm thankful for you! For your smile, your time, your respect, your love, your laugh, your creativity, your willingness, your care, your honesty, your genuineness, your everything.

Every day . . .

I'm coming in a little late on this week...
I am grateful for the global and local manifestations of the Body of Christ. And I am grateful for the privilege of experiencing worship with so many of them at different times.

I am thankful that not every day is the same, and particularly that every day isn't today! I cannot express my praise for the Lord's provision of strength for each day as it comes. Deut 33:25

I am grateful for Google. It might not know where my house is, but it really does put a wealth of information right in my lap. :)

Well, my dearest of friends, I have to add my whole-hearted agreement to all of your 'thankfuls'.

I am so thankful for you. I love you so, so much.:o)

I am so thankful for that incredible hike and your flow of analogies - I am continually amazed at how the Master orchestrates all things...
