Thankful Thursday

I am thankful that we are doing work for the lord, and that even though I stay tired he keeps me going. Through God's Grace and infinite mercy.

A preacher we met at the graduation Tuesday evening called and asked brother Chuck to come and preach at his church in Waycross last evening, so we did, and it was really a good message on God's marvellous mercy. We did not get home til late again ,it is a hour drive from here. We did enjoy it though. I am thankful he gives us the strength and health to be able to do the things we can do for him, it just amazes me how he works, and how things come out of no where.

The pastor from the church in Woodbine where my husband was pastor for 14 years called and wants him to come preach Father's day, so that is kinda fitting, he is like a father to all those in Woodbine church. I am looking for ward to going, I wish Jennifer was still there we could sing a song, (she and her family were there when we were there and we sang a lot) it wil be nice, and I give God the glory for opening these doors for Chuck, it blesses my heart to see him preach, I am partial, I love his preaching, it has always filled my cup plum full.

Some get old and just sit around, thank God we are not some of them, we are very active, and do all we are able to do for the lord. it blesses my heart, because a year ago I could barely get around, then I had knee replacement surgery and today I can go, I must say I do get more tired now than I used to, but you can always sleep, work for the lord today, we may not be able to tomorrow, we never know what will happen tomorrow, so may we all do all we can for our blessed Saviour today, who give his all for us.
I am so thankful God saved me and keeps me saved and is coming for again one day, and I say, COME QUICKLY LORD, COME QUICKLY. Well hope you all are thankful for today, the breath you breathe and the roof over head, the food you eat, the clothes you wear, yep they all come from God, in his infinite mercy he cares for us in every small detail, figure he takes care of the sparrow, how much more will he care for me, amen, thank you lord for all your blessings on me. Well that is what I have been up to, how about you, what is going on in your life.
Lots of hugs, Blessings Barbara

Amen! We just saw the little details in life being taken care of by God once again. Our friends at church were looking to give their van away to a Christian family that could use it. We remembered our neighbors whose van keeps breaking down. We asked them and they were so happy. She had been praying for a replacement van. Both families were blessed- the givers and receivers. And we were blessed to be a small part of it. Our God is an awesome God!

What a busy time you are having. Glad to hear your knee surgery did so well and you can go more and be pain free. I think the heat is whats making me tired to quickly. I try to get as much done as I can but find myself taking more and more breaks. Have a very blessed day my friend.

This was so encouraging.
Helping my mom after my dad having to be put in a home needing 24hr care. Away from home with the fires out of control just 30 minutes from where I live, no car etc. I started thanking my Lord for all he has done for me all these years and now. It made such a difference to me. So thanking my Lord for it all is a blessing.
