Thankful Thursday

Well another Thursday has rolled around, it seems like they come and go so fast, but none the less I am still praising God for all he does, I am so thankful he knows me, and that he keeps an eye on me. Others may come and go in my life but God is constant, he is one I can depend on to always be there for me, I can cry to Him, I can laugh with him,  and he will always be on my side. He never leaves, he never makes fun of, he never turns his back on me, or tries to shut me out.

Romans 8:31 "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?"

We had a lady in our church that always used to say that, so many were ugly to her, and she lived with many lost family, that was her reply when they made fun of her or laughed at her. Now she is with the lord, and snuggled up close to his side, and I bet still saying, Ayep...If God be for me, who can be against me. I loved this dear couple, both are in heaven now waiting for us, her dear husband went on about two years before her, to help guide her show her around when she got there no doubt. They were a loving couple who adored brother Chuck and I so much, we loved them like our folks. Oh yes I am so thankful for all the dear people of all kinds who I have had the honor of knowing thought my life. God has allowed me to touch some lives, and allowed me to be touched by some wonderful people, I am forever thankful for that, God bless each of you, and may you have a wonderful and thankful Thursday. Now tell me ladies what or who are you thankful for today?

Lots of Hugs, Barbara♥

How wonderful Barbara! Isn't it a comfort and joy to know you'll one day snuggle next to your friends at the side of Jesus?
Today I'm thankful that my life (not just my eternity) is in God's hands. There's no where I can go that He's not there. As we're expecting storms to come through sometime today, I know that God is with me and holding me in His loving hands - through any storm. And at one word, He calms the storms of life and carries me right on through.

I'm so thankful for you Barbara and you blessing of a website. So many don't understand how the computer can be useful..
I'm so thankful that Jesus loves us and that God is so wonderful. I'm so thankful that they didn't give up on me when I'd sin and always stand by me.
I'm so thankful for my wonderful husband and where we live. We have the opportunity to live like man was meant to live, with nature.

Thursdays make me so thankful for our Christian friends. We have met each week for fun and fellowship and the group has grown from four to sixteen. The sharing fills us with thankfulness for God's work in our lives, even in secular games. He sets us apart in so many ways and lifts us each one.

Isn't it contageous to be thankful? The more we find to thank the LORD for, the more thankful we become. It is amazing what HE has done for us! I am most thankful that HE has saved me from my wretched self!!

Blessings to you!
