Thankful Thursday ~ Time

“The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; he is their stronghold in the time of trouble.” ~ Psalm 37:39 (ESV emphasis mine)

Yes, I am thankful for time this week 😛 …Here is a little more detail:

  • I am thankful that I can come to the Lord at any time of the day or night with prayers and He will always be there to listen, comfort and strengthen…
  • I am thankful for the past 5 days that I spent with my Sweetheart. It was well worth taking time off work…
  • I am thankful when my sweet friends take time to pray for me…
  • I am thankful for when our son is taking time to call us and just chat…
  • I am thankful for the time my beloved is taking to teach me photography. Yeah, it is a lot different with the ‘real’ camera, than just a point and shoot. For some reason I do take better outside shots than inside…
  • And I am thankful for the time we had with our little Zoey. Sadly, she passed away last Sunday. The house is surely quiet without her…

What are you thankful for this week? Please do share with us 🙂 …Please link your Thankful Thursday post below.

Thank you so much for stopping by today…don’t forget, take time with the Lord (I started to read Jeremiah – thanks to a sweet friend), with your family and friends. It is time well spent…

    I love TT!

    Time is something that we have been thinking of a lot; Our littlest is turning two next week and we keep wondering where the time has flown.

  2. SharonB says:

    Time is such a precious gift that we often overlook. It’s good to reflect how we’ve spent time this week and be thankful for those things we so often take advantage of. Thank you for sharing and reminding us to enjoy the gift of time.

  3. Angie says:

    Iris, I am so thankful for YOU! For all that you do for each of us. The time you take…TIME—since we seem so short on it—you give of yours freely. Thank you girl. I am sorry about little Zoey. I saw your picture. You did a very good job. I know she will be missed. God cares about those details as much as He does anything else. What concerns us concerns Him.
    I am glad you had a good week of with your dear man! The Lord is good. EVEN when all I can say in the morning is I am tired. That is what I muttered all day. Could be I’ve been up too late working on posts???? Naw…
    I love you girl!

    Ahhh, TIME! I never to seem to have enough and am so thankful for “more” of it! I love time spent with my husband and dear children. My hubby’s primary love language is “quality time”, so I am so aware of how important it is to him, too!

    Iris, How I love that you select TIME appropriate themes each week for Thankful Thursday! TIME is so priceless! And yet our time is not the same frame as HIS
    Time…and HIS TIME is always perfect!

    Iris, I’m so sorry about Zoey! I’m glad you enjoyed your time and now memories!
    Quiet homes….hmmmm! Each TIME you have such lovely thank yous starting with Our Lord and then your hubby! Such a delight to see such love…again Happy
    Anniversary! Does it seem like 25 years? How wonderful that you can take up a new hobby to share:photography…cool!

    There never seems to be enough time…time for the Lord should be first each day.
    And when you jumpstart and skip that step, the whole day seems out of time!

    God bless your time today and each day with more of HIM! Peggy

  17. Marsha says:

    TIME… what a great word to focus on. Even though God is eternal, He has given us the gift of time to measure life by.

    Happy Anniversary! 25 years is a wonderful milestone.

    I’m so sorry your little doggy passed away. Ours is getting old, too. It will be a sad day for sure.

    Have a blessed week.
