so much to be thankful for ...

I am thankful for Greg and his dedication to this awesome way to show our thanks each week!

I am thankful that even though my husband was so sick during the revival, God graced him each night with the filling of the Holy Spirit and enabled him to preach and bring a Word straight from the Throne of the Almighty. Thank you Lord for a husband who is commited to You and Your gospel.

I am thankful that God has such a wonderful sense of humor and is so patient with me. After a week of all the glorious and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets I soaked up in New Mexico, I was bemoaning the lack of beauty like that back home here in Louisiana. The night after we got home, God so graciously threw this beautiful sunset into the sky as if to say "how about this one?", and as I stepped outside my house, I just had to laugh and say "You are so amazing, God!"  I am indeed so thankful for the beautiful sunsets here at home.

(Bryton and Sawyer)

I am so thankful for these little guys here. The day after we got back, Ashlie, Cody and the boys headed to Wyoming where Cody is working a pipeline job for a few months. I miss them terribly already, but I am so thankful that I can talk to them each day and hear their sweet little voices. Thank you Lord for Bryton, Sawyer and their parents!

(Mercie, Silas, Mikaela and Eli)

I am so thankful for Megan's 4 little ones. They always put a smile on my face and in my heart.  I am certainly a blessed Nana with 6 (for now..) amazing grandkids. Thank you Lord for the gift of grandchildren.

I am thankful for the fun that Megan and I had today when we took the kids shopping. Mercie and Mikaela kept us entertained trying on these hats. Never a dull moment when I am with them. Thank you precious Lord that I can spend so much time with my grandchildren and my daughters.

I am so thankful for this little darling. Our newest little grandyoungin' is growing up so fast! Silas is 14 weeks old and he is the sweetest little thing ever! He loves to smile and he has 2 dimples just like big sister Mikaela. Thank you Lord for little Silas.
I am so thankful for the Word of God. I love how it speaks to me in a new way each day. I can read the same scripture over and over and each time the Lord shows me something new in it. Thank you, my precious Father, for your Holy Word. May I never take it for granted and may I never fail to dig deep into it each day of my life.

"Fear not, I have redeemed thee,
I have called thee by thy name;
thou art mine"
(Isaiah 43:1)

What a darling couple! I love the picture of you & your hubby.

Having a grateful heart is a habit, isn't it? The more you reflect and give thanks, the more there is to be thankful for.

And what better way to inspire a volley of thankfulness than grandchildren. That little guy is a charmer (roughly the same age as our new Kole).

I'm thankful for thankful friends.

Bless you,

I am thankful for those occasions when we least expect to see his handiwork and then our eyes are opened to witness his display.

I saw him today in the recovery room... when I saw my nurse doing her Beth Moore homework to Psalms of Ascent. We spent a great deal of time talking about our favorite studies and about Jesus and his Word.

This was God's gift to me after an extremely stressful 24 hours of prepping for surgery and then walking it through.

What a mighty, gracious, giving God we serve!
