What I'm Thankful For

for todays thankful thursday, i have a million thots going thru my brain. this may be kind of random, but here goes!

** thank you Lord for my boys new school year. how energized michael is going back to class and studying. for joe's new teacher and aide and their willingness to do their best with him.

** thank you Lord, that there are so many good churches in boise and that you know just the right one for us to attend.

** thank you Lord for our YMCA and being able to use our bodies as you designed them. for machines, and pools and people to help us get fit, stay fit and treat our temples wisely.

** thank you for the beautiful park right down the road from us where we can take family walks in the cool of the evening.

** thank you Lord for the internet to stay connected with family far away and friends we've left behind. thank you for telephones and longdistance plans. for snail mail and for prayers that know no distance.

** thank you Lord for the great sofa we found on craigs list and for the dirt cheap price that fit into our student budget. thank you for the way it fits into our living room, how comfy it is, and the neutral yellowish-beige color that goes with everything.

** thank you Lord for taking care of us. taking care of our physical needs, and caring for us as people, children of You! and blessing our lives here on earth and giving us a hope for an eternal future with You! what a wonderful gift You are and You give. words fail to express my gratitude to you for all that You are, and all that You do.

Thank you for sharing your grateful heart with us today on TT! and for your lovely comment on my blog. PLEASE share todays thoughts from my blog with your Mom. This is why I blog - in hopes to encourage others.

I also administer a prayer blog and I would love to add your Mom's name to the prayer list. You may not have noticed the link when you were on my blog, but if you click on my family picture on the very top it will take you to the prayer blog. I have many prayer warriors that are interceding for the names on this list. You can email me privately if you want with her name. my email is or comment back to me on my blog.

Blessings to you, Laurie
