Thankful Thursday ~ Random

“And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” ~ Colossians 3:15-17 (ESV – emphasis mine)

Normally I focus on a specific word, but this week it was just impossible — there are just so many things floating in my heart tonight ๐Ÿ˜› …So I thought a random list would be best for me this week.

Today I am thankful for…

  • …for God our Heavenly Father Who through the gift of the Holy Spirit guides me through this life. He opens and closes doors of opportunities. And the best thing about it? I don’t get all frazzled anymore when a door of opportunity closes…
  • …for my beloved. I am going through a very emotional time right now with the separation with our son. I am starting to be okay with Daniel living his own life. I have to accept that he is a young adult (it is just hard some days…)…
  • …for my mom. She is such a great woman. I talk to her once a week over the phone. I wish I could just sit with her and have a cup of coffee. But for right now our Saturday morning phone-calls have to do. Oh, and I just got a book from her – I had requested a good read from Mary Pierce – it is in my native language – wahoo!!!!!
  • …for friends that have an understanding heart, ear and share their wisdom with me. I tend to listen to them (most of the time ๐Ÿ˜† )…
  • …for God given me peace about my work…
  • …for lost dogs being reunited with their owners
  • …for friends that appreciate your creative side. Thank you Michelle for the sweet award you have given me. You were the first digi-scrap designer who gave me a chance to create digital LO’s as a CT. I have learned a lot from you. Your kits are marvelous to work with…
  • …for what God has done with Thankful Thursdays. It is amazing. The group has qua-tripled since it started in February of 2006 – that is all God’s doing leading you all here…
  • …and foremost I am thankful for His living Word. I so enjoy the time reading His Word and devotional thoughts of others. I love when He teaches me new things; or keeps bringing up the same passage so that I finally get the point ๐Ÿ˜‰ …

What are you thankful for this week? Care to share with us? If you have written your own thankful post, please leave your link below. Please make sure that the link is either to your blog or to your thankful post. If your link is incorrect, others will be unable to visit you…

    I am thankful for random acts of kindness. I had a beautiful journal dropped off on my doorstep this week. It made my week!!!

  3. Amber (BGH) says:

    You’ve changed your blog name!! I like it! Forgive me, it’s been a while since I stopped by. I haven’t participated in a while, but felt like I should join in again this week.

    I am SOO thankful for my mom, too, thought I didn’t list her specifically in my list today. We’re close and I talk to her ofte – even though she now lives four hours away instead of 15 minutes. ๐Ÿ™
    God bless you today!

    Amber (BGH)โ€™s last blog post..Iโ€™m thinking of reinventing myselfโ€ฆ
