Thankful Thursday

Wow how much I have to be thankful for, this overflow of our house freezer for one, in a time when things are rough, my father owns the cattle on the hills, and he keeps our freezer full, we are on a limited income but my God always supples our need, yeppers just like he said in Philippians 4:19 "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."  I suggest you read this whole chapter, it will bless your socks off, and you can claim these wonderful promises from God for your very own.

I can remember a time when God supply all our needs, and this was before we were saved even, he loved us, he took care of us, and drew us close to him so we could experience salvation, oh my what a loving God we serve, and today I am thankful for all his hands have provided , for many many years he has taken care of me, and my needs, I have learned I can lean on him, I can trust him, I certainly have trusted him with my life, and I know he will take me to heaven to be with him one day, and in him I do put my faith.

What do you have to be thankful for today? Tell me, is it financial, spiritual, or just some little thing no one else knew about, and the hand of God provided.

Be blessed, be a blessing, and thank God from whom all blessings fall.

My Tribute

Verse 1
How can I say thanks
For the things You have done for me,
Things so undeserved,
Yet You gave to prove Your love for me.
The voices of a million angels
Could not express my gratitude.
All that I am and ever hope to be,
I owe it all to Thee.

To God be the glory,
To God be the glory,
To God be the glory,
For the things He has done.
With His blood He has saved me,
With His power He has raised me,
To God be the glory,
For the things He has done.

Verse 2
Just let me live my life,
Let it be pleasing, Lord, to Thee,
And if I gain any praise,
Let it go to Calvary.
With His blood He has saved me,
With His power He has raised me,
To God be the glory,
For the things He has done.

I am gonna post some wonderful other things here I have to be thankful for, hope you enjoy my photos, and see the beauty in the things all around you.

These Are Baby Birds in a nest built in an old wash tub out back, see
their little yellow beaks and eyes above it.
This old tractor bell is embedded into the tree, that has grown that
much since we hung it there.
First tomatoes one the vine this season
Well That is enough for this time, have a wonderful Thankful Thursday: Lots of hugs and blessings, Barbara♥

I remember reading something Uncle
Bud Robison wrote: My Lord owns the Hills, The cattle on the hills and all the "tators" in the hill.

If you have never read his story you should. Your garden looks real good. We pick yellow squash every day. The other stuff is coming on real good.

I've been so blessed today, browsing through your lovely blog. I'm glad you shared those song lyrics. It was very popular when I was first saved way back in 1977.

Your love for Jesus and His sheep shines so strongly through your blog! May we all keep reflecting His light and love.
