Thankful Thursday ~ Random

You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever! ~ Psalm 30:11-12 (ESV ~emphasis mine)

Wow – Thanksgiving is already next week. Hm…where did this year go?

Before I share my random list with you today, I would like you to know that I will not be hosting Thankful Thursday next week. You might wonder “why not?”. Oh, I have my reason 😛 …I will be still sharing my grateful heart with you next week, but I am participating in Heather’s “Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving 08”. I hope you will join us next week at Heather’s place. Regular Thankful Thursday will be back after Thanksgiving 😛 …

So, here is my list for this week…

  • I am thankful that I am loved by the King of kings. He loved me so much that He gave His one and only Son to die for me…
  • I am thankful for my beloved. I am so glad that he puts up with my clumsiness. Can you believe that I spilled coffee all over him? Well, I did. I think I am sometimes too much in a hurry — note to self “slow down”…
  • I am thankful for showers. Not only do they get me clean, but it is my favorite time of prayer…
  • I am thankful for a brand new Bible study by Beth Moore. I am very excited about it, because it has individual video lessons. The study is about the book of Esther. I am currently reading the Scripture passages. I am planning to do the study in January. Maybe a blog-study in Spring of 2009. But only God knows if that will happen…
  • I am thankful for a wonderful project the Lord has put on my heart. Most of you know that I am doing some digital scrapping (when I have time – hm – not so much lately). Anyway, I am working on a Faithbook – A-Z. I plan on having in professionally printed. The best part: my beloved is excited with me 😛 . I might share some pages here on my blog over the next several months…
  • I am thankful that next week is Thanksgiving — I only have to work 3 days next week – YEAH (can you see my jiggy dance 😆 ) …
  • And last but not least, I am thankful that one of my co-workers is back at work. That means that my work-load will get lighter – hopefully…

What are you thankful for this week? Please do share with us in leaving your link below…Before you ‘run’ off, would you do me a favor? It is Denise’s birthday – I hope you have some time to stop by her blog to wish her a wonderful birthday 🙂 ?

Thanks for stopping by. Remember: You are beautiful, you are loved and you are His. If I don’t ‘see’ you next – Have a blessed Thanksgiving.

    (Oops! I left this comment on the wrong post. Sorry!) Good morning! Thanks for hosting this lovely carnival. I’ve got you in my sidebar list of weekly blog carnivals, so hopefully you’ll get a little linky love!
    P.S. I thought I had entered my link in Mr. Linky last night, but I can’t remember for sure. Anyway, it seems it might of gotten deleted. If that’s the case, could you send me a quick comment or email to let me know if I didn’t follow a rule correctly? I would have sent you this comment in a private email, but I couldn’t find an email address. Sorry. Just wanted to make sure I got things right the second time around! Thanks again so much and have a great one!
