Thankful Thursday - November 5, 2009

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

I'm joining Sonya and all the others for Thankful Thursday today. Thank you Sonya for hosting this so faithfully every week.

  1. I'm thankful that God has been encouraging me with so many messages and scriptures of my worth in His eyes and that He loves me even when I mess up. It's sometimes difficult to see from His perspective.
  2. I'm thankful that He hears my prayers and saved me about $2000.00 on plumbing repairs when I could just use a $12.00 bottle of root killer to keep the tree roots out of my sewer line.
  3. I'm thankful for the business He has been sending my way and that He always carries me through my work. I'm also thankful for the extra time I have now that I'm not watching the girls during the day so I don't feel like I'm working all the time. But not having them here sure is an adjustment.
  4. I'm thankful for the way God orchestrated the circumstances that led me to a new church where the girls have more opportunity for spiritual growth.
  5. I'm thankful for the opportunity to be a contributing author for Titus 2 in Action. It launched this week and is led by our dear Sonya who also leads us in Thankful Thursday. I hope you will join us there.

Thank you Lord that you are in every detail of my life. That you love me in spite of my weaknesses and flaws. That you care for me, and that you won't drop me. Help me to view myself and others through your eyes Lord. ~ In Jesus Name Amen

Your thank you's are a blessing to read Edie.

I pray all is well with the Grand babies and the adjustment you're making not having them with you during the day.

May THE LORD send bunches of Graphic business your way because you are such a blessing to all of us.

Love you.

What a beautiful list today Edie! I thought of you as I wrote my Thankful list today and just wanted to come here specifically and thankyou in cyber person LOL
for being a part of that "cloud of witnesses" that I wrote about! You have played such a role in that and I truly praise the Lord for you and your gifts that you so lovingly share with so many!

Bless you my friend

Isn't God good. He just keeps on blessing and blessing. I'm so thankful your receiving all those blessings. It takes a lot of faith to step out as you did and simply trust God to supply your needs. You are a very special person and I thank God that you are one of my blogging friends.
May the rest of your day be bountiful.
Lov u,
Thanks for visiting my blog and your prayers.

I love your list. I haven't posted one yet this week, and probably won't at this point. It's just been "one of those" weeks.

Reading your list makes me wish we lived closer. I'd love to get coffee and linger over each thing on your list and hear more.

By the way, my Gigi was looking at the Titus 2 blog and said (regarding your photo), "she doesn't look old enough to be a grandma." I thought you'd appreciate the comment. :-)

I am echoing your prayer, Edie. So thankful that HE is in every detail.

Wow Edie! You are a blessing! Love your thankful list and thanks for the heads up on using root killer for the plumbing. We have trouble with ours from time to time and this could save us big time money.

I just love the Maya Angelo quote you have listed. Sooooo true!
