Thankful Thrusday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey


Today I'm joining Sonya at Truth for the Journey in listing 5 things that I am thankful for.

1. I am thankful to know Christ and the love He lavishes on His children.

2. I am thankful for the opportunity to teach my grandaughters to memorize scripture.

3. I am thankful that God wanted to show me who He created me to be and the specific skills and talents that He has given me, and now that He is teaching me the spiritual gifts He has given me.

4. I am thankful for the dear friends I have met through blogging. I have been so very blessed to develop some very close friendships. I know this has all been arranged by Him.

5. I am thankful that God has allowed me the opportunity to stay home this year and has continued to provide for all of my needs, given me peace not to worry about the income, and increased my faith to fully trust that He will not drop me.

Shows great faith, Edie!

So thankful, indeed, that God has made friendship possible through what would seem like extraordinary means for friendship to even develop. He's so good!

He really does love me because He keeps giving me opportunities. Some people say that I am just lucky but I know differently.

Thank you for using your talent to glorify God.

Hi Edie,

What a great list of things you are thankful for! I'd love to get some tips on teaching my kids to memorize scripture. Can you post on what you do with your grandkids sometime?

Love you!

Hi Edie,

Just wanted to gives thanks, actually a praise, to the awesomeness of how God works. With my husband still out of a job, money is tight. I was talking to the Lord on the way home Friday. "Lord, if you want me to be able to buy food, medicine or gas, You will have to show me how without having to charge it." Well, I got home and opened my mail and there was a refund check for $250.00 from a medical center where I'd had a test done several weeks ago. Coincidence? I don't think so. God's timing is remarkable.
