Thankful Thursday


Taking time once again to list some of the things I have to be thankful for this week

  • For His mercies which are new every morning. 
"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness" Lamentation 3:22-23

  • For the opportunity to have a weekend away with husband
  • For the hairdresser that cuts Sweet Lady's hair, she is kind, compassionate and treats her as if there were no disability. She is a gem and a blessing to us.
  • For never having to put gas in my car, thankful for my sweet husband who takes care of that task
  • For heat and a home that keeps us from the cold
  • For continued "routine" days
  • For some terrific thrift store finds, thankful for the many thrift stores we have in our area
  • For hot fragrant tea on a cold morning. Winter arrived in our neck of the woods yesterday, complete with a dusting of snow in some areas. Thankful we did not have this cold weather last weekend
  • I am thankful for today, for new opportunities to reflect His light, and yes, for mercies that are new each morning

What a precious list. I kept nodding. Just the name of your blog always, always convicts me and has me looking up!

What a lovely list! And, I'm thinking it would do us all well to make a "thankful list." HE is so good and we do indeed have so much to be thankful for. Happy weekend to you!

Hello Dear Friend,
I also love to read the things you are thankful for! I have a special little book, that I use to write something I am thankful for almost daily.
My sweet Hubby always puts gas in my car also. And my favorite hymn is (It is well with my Soul)
I enjoy you and your posts!
Blessings Always, Roxy

Hi Maryann! I am thankful for this new computer chair I am sitting in today. The old one was a thrift store purchase and my back knew it!

How cool to be thankful for 'routine' days. That really is true. It is a gift to be able to get out of bed and be independent. Great food for thought!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
