Thankful Thursday #2

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

It's time for Thankful Thursday again. Thank You Sonya for hosting. It's amazing when I sit down and start thinking about what my 5 will be this week, my heart begins to overflow. Here goes:
  1. I am thankful for the snow this week (yes you heard this California girl right). Tuesday night we received about 8" of fresh snow. Though I often complain about the cold weather, I thoroughly enjoyed being outside as we dug out the driveway. When everything around you is white and fresh and clean, it's just so peaceful. It's as if there is a stillness in the air and you can just take in the beauty of the moment. It was definitely a God Stop for me this week
  2. I am thankful that after working all day and cooking dinner, I don't have to think about the mess in the kitchen and the dirty dishes. It really makes me feel appreciated and loved by my family when my guys say, "Go sit down, we'll take care of this." Thank you both!
  3. I am thankful for the new Christian sisters & siestas I meet each day online. You challenge and encourage me as I read what God is showing you, teaching you and just how much He loves you. Thank you for the comments you leave on this blog that make me smile.
  4. I am thankful for songs that at just the right moment draw my heart straight into worship.
  5. I am thankful for the safety of those I love. So many accidents on the slippery roads. Thank you God for your protection.

I know your hearts must be busting at the seams with Thanksgiving. Feel free to leave at least leave one thing you're thankful for in the comments.

Blessings - Lisa

I love quotes, am so thankful for them and wanted to share this with you this evening.

We profit from the Word of God only when it takes root in us, and is so fixed in our hearts that it remains there.

Lisa, I love reading how other people are thankful. It really reinforces to me, how blessed we as Christians actually are! So blessed.

I am REALLY thankful that Melissa was not hurt last night in the accident. She is a small girl and those airbags could have really done some damage. Cars are replaceble. My sweet baby is NOT.

In Him,

Lisa, this is an awesome list. I too find myself singing one or two verses to a song I heard in church on the radio--at just the right time:-)

Colleen said...

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I looked at your profile and under music you love you have Cherri Keagy -- I heart her!!! I haven't listened to her in a long time. I need to do the itunes magic and get her hooked to my pod.

Your blog is so uplifting. I will jump on the thankful wagon . . . one thing I am thankful for our my boys Dick (hubs) and Dak (16 yr old son).

Have a Blessed day,
