Thankful Thursday 2

Hebrews 13:15  By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

*Getting back into our normal routine

*A cancelled game, freeing up time on our schedule

*Movie night with the kids

*Fun times watching the youngest princess and her friend play basketball

*The oldest princess getting to love on a very special baby

*Another cute movie with the kids

*Going back to church after what felt like forever (being gone for the Holidays)

*An unexpected sweet compliment

*Fellowship with friends

*Being reminded of the fact that the oldest princess is a good example to those younger than her, and that other mothers encourage their daughters to look up to her (major blessing in that she works very hard to please the Lord, and not follow the crowd)

*God's grace that is never ending

*Treasures I'm learning through personal Bible study

*Seeing a friend I have missed

*The chance to minister to a special group of ladies

*Peace that comes from knowing all is right between the Lord and I

*A teacher stopping me in the hall to tell me what a joy it is to have the young prince, and the oldest princess in his class (nothing spreads a balm of healing over a Mother's heart like someone complimenting her children out of the blue like that)

*The privilege to hold a precious new baby

*Bits of wisdom gleaned from those who have traveled this way before, and know more than I do

*The gift of prayer, and an open line of communication to the Creator of the Universe any time, day or night

*Examples of true, unconditional love

*Friendships that stand the test of time, and circumstances

*Encouragement from unexpected places

Thank You, Lord, for these specific blessings this week, as well as many many more.
