Thankful Thursday

Taking a moment to stop and reflect on some of the things I have to be thankful for today

  1. Blooming flowers in my garden, roses that are beginning to leaf out and a friend who sends me coupons for discounts at the local nursery
  2. Answered prayer, a friend was hospitalized two weeks ago, she was ill enough to spend three days in the ICU.  Yesterday she was back at Care Group, still weak but fully recovered.
  3. A new baby in our family, a Great Nephew, mama and baby doing well, Grandma delighted (my sister)
  4. Tea Parties with granddaughters
  5. Weekend excursion with friends and the chance it gave us to get to know each other better. 
  6. The opportunity to see an old friend when we went to DC 
  7. Sleepover with three of my four grandchildren this week, lots of chances for snuggles
  8. Pretty Apple blossoms, the freezing temperatures nipped them a bit but I got some photos before the temperatures dropped
  9. Chickadee's checking out a bird house that I can watch from inside my family room
  10. The Lord's daily provision for us, he has been so faithful in our lives
Thankfulness to God is a recognition that God in his goodness and faithfulness has provided for us and cared for us, both physically and spiritually. It is a recognition that we are totally dependent upon Him; that all we are and have comes from God.   Jerry Bridges
