Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Thankful Thursday! Yay! Check out the others here. Truth for the Journey I do enjoy the reminder to stop and let the "world" know what it is God has blessed us with from the little things to the great...

1. I am thankful for a great school system for Bramwell. He seems to really be enjoying himself, and as the days go by I'm sure I'll be less nervous for him. He walked into the class today and didn't even look back, yesterday they showed him a train set and I might as well have disappeared. Apparently, I'm the only one with hangups about him going to school.

2. I am thankful for all the new possibilities in our ministry. We have recently changed to having our language specific services on seperate days, rather than one meeting right after another. I am really excited about all the good things that could come from this. Of course there are moments when it's seems very lonely on the "front lines"...but we have been promised the victory!

3. I am thankful for Kinder chocolate. It's apparently a chocolate that's not really available in the States, bit it's incredibly cheap here and incredibly good!

4. I am thankful for all the Christmas cards we recieved. We have taped the cards onto the wall above our dinner table and the boys and I have been talking about how these are all the people that love our family. I still don't have the desire to take them down yet.

5. I'm thankful for the snow on the mountain. It's been rather cold the past couple of days and with the rain today there is visible snow on the mountain. It's just a beautiful reminder of an amazing Creator.

Always lots to be thankful for. It's nice to write it out, for me, because I remember and focus on more things. Glad you are too!

What a great list today! I don't see why you have to take the Christmas cards down since they have such meaning to you!! We still have ours displayed, too. :)

God Bless you and your family today

I love the reminder too Valerie. I give thanks continually as I go through my days, but this is helping me to spend more time going back and thinking on the blessings and mercies that are new every day.

What a wonderful thankful list!!

I'm glad for Thankful Thursday!! Although I keep a "Gratitude Journal" and list one thing that I am thankful for every evening, it's wonderful to go around and visit others and see what they are thankful for also!!

I agree with Sonya--keep the Christmas cards up and enjoy them and the blessings they have brought your hearts!!
