Grateful Friday


So very thankful for so many things this week.

We had a wonderful time traveling to Ocean Shores for our Chaverim Retreat. The weather was beautiful despite the season, and the fellowship, study, prayer and food was incredible. We were more than blessed.

I am grateful that the 'party van' started and ran well the whole weekend - Baruch HaShem!

I'm grateful for memories.

I'm grateful for recorded music.

I'm very grateful for printed teaching notes.

I'm grateful for sweet little souvenirs to bring back to my Dolly.

I'm grateful for my besties - I love you so much!

I'm grateful for friends checking on me when they know I'm having an especially difficult time.

I'm grateful for the loving support of my husband.

I'm grateful I didn't go for that job interview after all...it turns out the interviewer was pretty rude.  Nice.

I'm grateful Elliot got back from Israel safely.

I'm grateful that Morgan is really enjoying square dancing.  Never would have guessed that one!

I'm grateful to find cute shortie boots that look really cool and didn't break the bank.

I'm grateful for all the uber-cool thrift store finds lately (especially when we find Judaica that is a mystery to the store personnel!)

I'm grateful that my Taylor listens and wants to be the best he can be.

I'm grateful that we have a place of refuge in stormy times.

I'm grateful that the LORD urges souls to pray for me.

I'm grateful that somehow, in His providence, He allows me to overlook the horrible things and remember the good things.  It doesn't make the 'missing' any easier, but it is healthier than being angry and harboring a grudge.

I never knew until that moment how bad it could hurt 
to lose something you never really had.

Just look at that list! More evidence, plain and clear, that the Lord whom you serve with all your heart, is keeping you and will continue to do so.

Liz, I am exceedingly grateful for you.
