Thankful Thursday ~ Random II

Today I just want to jot down some random thankful notes. I am always giddy when I write my thankful posts. Although there are some things I truly miss, the Lord has blessed me with many things here in the US. I shall remember all the blessings when I feel ‘blue’…

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” ~ Jeremiah 17:7-8 (ESV)

  • Lord, I am thankful that You have planted me here in the desert to seek Your living water and receive life…
  • I am thankful for my Sweetheart who still really, really likes me and does have the desire to be married to me…
  • I am thankful that my Sweetheart has a job so we can pay our mortgage, car payments…
  • I am thankful for the laundry that I am folding, because that means that we have clothes to wear…
  • I am thankful that I have fresh fruit and vegetable available to purchase whenever I feel like it…
  • I am thankful for my alarm, because it means that I have a job (even when I grumble sometimes)…
  • I am thankful for our son; that he has a job and enjoys is (most days)…
  • I am thankful that I can take a shower any time I need to feel refreshed…
  • I am thankful that the weather has been really great this spring (still nice and cool)…
  • I am thankful that I can read the Bible in many languages or Bible translations on the Internet (great for research)…
  • I am thankful for my laptop and wireless card, because I can write this post in the living room in my comfy chair…
  • I am thankful that I won baseball tickets last week–gives us the chance to see the ballpark from the inside on Friday night…
  • I am thankful for Digital Freebies–this week’s link for digi-scrappers 😛 . They have every Friday a Freebie and sometimes some really cool deals in the Boutique

What are you thankful for this week? I so enjoy reading your thankful lists. I know that it takes me sometimes a couple of days to get around, but know that I always look forward visiting with you…Please leave your link below (leave a comment if your time permits), visit others…

Blessings to you and as always…

  1. I am sitting in my living room in a comfy chair also =) This is a great list, a reminder to be thankful for things we sometimes grumble about.


  2. Amy says:

    Oh I agree about nice showers, and comfy living room chairs are lovely. Your sweetheart sounds like a gem btw 🙂

  3. Lauren S. says:

    What an uplifting list! As small as it seems in my day, I am truly thankful for my shower as well. To think that showers are relatively new when compared to all of history. I am so thankful to have mine! Have a wonderful Thursday!

  4. jen says:

    excellent list
    have a good Thursday

  5. You have a great list. It sounds like you really focus on the positive in life and that is such a blessing. I hope you have a good week and that the Lord blesses you this week.

    It has been a few weeks since I have posted a Thankful Thursday, but I’m now back.


  6. Faerylandmom says:

    I have to admit, I’m not feeling very thankful, so I’m glad “feeling” really has nothing to do with it. It’s a choice.

    I am having to choose to be grateful this week, and I will. God, help me please!

    Thanks for your “random” thankfuls this week Iris. Blessings!

  7. Erica says:

    Ah yes..I too am thankful for my wonderful showers.

  8. Denise says:

    Great list my friend.

  9. Crystal says:

    Great list…..I had a really hard time posting this week but it was sooo good when I finally did do it and write things down….it sure keeps things in perspective.

  10. Iris, I’m blessed by you each week. I read one of your post today which I needed, so thank you again. And may God shower you this week with His blessings! *Hugs*

  11. Dear Iris,

    Iris, a beautiful list! We sometimes forget to be thankful for the things we take for granted, such as a nice, hot shower, or comfortable chair to sit in.

    Have a blessed week!

  15. Dana says:

    I love my wireless card and laptop too – when I can get it to work and this morning it isn’t cooperating very well…..Great list, thanks for sharing as always!

    Hi Iris,

    I think it is an amazing thing when someone can learn another language.. I have tried and for me, it is such a difficult thing to do. Thank you as always for sharing your thankful heart with us.

  21. samibear says:

    Great List! I am so thankful for my laptop also. I can take my computer to any room or even on trips. That desk chair was never comfortable and I always got up stiff if I sat to long.

    Such a beautiful scripture.

    I love using on-line Bibles for research, too–that search function is way cool!

    Baseball tickets! Wow, how fun–baseball is one of my favorite sports. I can actually enjoy watching it–not as much as I enjoy playing it, though.

  24. Laura says:

    Thanks for hosting. I’ve not played before but I will again …

  25. zoe says:

    I’m not into many sports, but free tickets usually get me out there to watch! We got to see some really good motor racing last year that way.
