oh, what a thankful thursday it is

Thanks, Greg, for hosting this amazing Thankful Thursday post each week.

I am thankful for the four little grandyoungin's that these feet represent and I love how my daughter captured their personalities in each picture. I love Sila's little chubby feet and Mikaela's prim and proper stance. I love that Mercie's crocs are on the wrong feet and that Eli chose to wear his boots with his shorts instead of his flip-flops. I love being a Nana!


I am thankful for the 2 precious grandsons in this picture. Bryton and Sawyer bring me much joy and laughter. They are brothers and best friends and as they get older, it is fun to watch them play.  I love how they are walking together in this picture.


I am thankful that our amazing God never sleeps. He is always awake and attentive to our every need. He loves us and watches over us 24 hours a day. He loves us so much and for that I am eternally thankful!

 "He will not suffer thy foot to be moved;
he that keepeth thee will not slumber"
(Psalm 121:4)

I am thankful for answered prayer this past week. God is faithful and He is an on-time God. He knows what is best for our lives and all we have to do is surrender our will to His and be obedient to His calling.

"Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD;
that walketh in His ways"
(Psalm 128:1)

I am thankful that we are able to worship without worry. We can pray and praise without threat to our lives. We have the freedom to read and study the bible anytime and anywhere. I am so thankful that we are able to be open with our faith and I pray that we won't take it for granted. May we never open our bibles without being thankful for the God-breathed work that it is.

"From the rising of the sun unto the going down
of the same the LORD's name is to be praise.
The LORD is high above all nations, and
His glory above the heavens"
(Psalm 113:3,4)


Thank you, Lord, for your hand of protection upon us. Thank you for your mercy and grace. For your peace and your hope. Thank you for loving us and for caring about us. Thank you for the sacrifice of your precious Son on the Cross, so that we could have forgiveness of sins and eternal life. You are awesome and amazing. You are wonderful and merciful. You are our all in all. You are the one true God.  We give you glory and honor and praise for all that you do and all that you are.
