Joining Greg at http://www.gregsgeneralstore.blogspot.com/ once again for a day of thankfulness. Stop in at his place and join in - it will really lift your spirits!
* I am so very thankful that when I cried out to God this week on behalf of my daughter, He heard me. And He had mercy on Melissa and healed her body from the sickness that was threatening her. He has given her the strength to persevere and for that I am thankful!
"In my distress I cried to the Lord, And He heard me" (Psalm 120:1)
* I am so thankful that I have such awesome bloggy friends and when I send out an SOS for prayer, they are all so faithful to lift up my needs! Thank you so much my precious friends. You mean the world to me.
"A friend loves at all times..... " (Proverbs 17:17)
* I am so thankful that the 5 amazing little ones that made these 5 precious handprints, are my sweet grandchildren. Oh, how blessed I am for the Lord to allow me of all people to be their "Nana" and have the privilege of teaching them about Jesus. Thank you Lord. May I always be an example of Christ to them in all I do and say.
* I am thankful that in 11 days or less, another litttle handprint will adorn that bottom tile. I am thankful that the Lord has protected Megan and the baby and kept them healthy. I am thankful that Mercie is excited about having a little brother. (for now, that is....)
"I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made"
*I am thankful that we serve a God who not only redeemed us but that knows us intimately and calls us by our name. Oh, how amazing is that! He knows me! He knows my name! Thank you Lord that I am yours and that You are mine...
"...fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name, You are Mine." (Isaiah 43:1)
With a thankful heart,
