I am just thankful for some many things. We could all probably make a list that never ended. God is so generous with the multitude of blessings that He so lovingly bestows on me and my family daily. I am so glad that Greg so willingly hosts this THANKFUL THURSDAY post each week so we can take the time to give our wonderful Lord the praise that He is so worthy of. Thanks Greg!
I am so thankful that my newest little grandson is doing so well! Little Silas is just the sweetest little thing ever and I just love to go and get lots of good baby sugar from him.
(oh, my is there anything sweeter?)
I am so thankful that God has blessed me and my husband with such a great church family. We seriously have the best church ever! Our church is so loving and so amazing that it is such a pleasure and privilege to serve here. Oh, thank you precious Lord for allowing us to be at this place of service at this time in our lives.
I am so thankful that I live only 25 miles from both of my married daughters. This enables me to see them and their precious youngin's many times a week. I am so thankful that my girls love me enough to want me to come over often! Thank you Lord for that awesome blessing!

I am thankful that in one week, Melissa will be home from Bolivia! Yay! She will hopefully be able to spend a few days at home with us before going back to Baton Rouge to start working again. I am so thankful for God's hand upon her during the past 6 weeks and pray that He continues to keep her safe and brings her home in one piece!
I am so thankful for God's love. I read the following in a book called "the Christian Atheist" by Craig Groeschel. It is an amazing book and I highly recommend it. (thanks, Misty!)
"... You are one of God's children. He's crazy about you. There is nothing you can do to make God love you more. And there is nothing you can do to make God love you less. Love is not something God does. It is who God is. And because of who He is, God loves you. Period."
God loves us with an unconditional, all-encompassing love. He is so worthy of all that we have to offer. He loves us with no strings attached. He loves us in spite of our failures. He just straight out loves us. Thank you, Lord for your LOVE.
