Thankful Thursday

its time to rattle off my list of thankful items for the week. i just love this exercise in gratitude. it really does help my focus and mood. i'm thankful that iris hosts it every week. and she has set up a new blog called grace alone ... where it happens. love that title.

so what, may you ask, am i thankful for this week? oh, i'm glad you asked.

i give thanks to the Lord for:

~~ the wonderful season of Autumn, the crisp cool mornings, the beautiful reds, oranges, yellows and other colors that grace the trees and bushes. and football! college football of course. Go Broncos!!!

~~ Gods goodness and faithfulness to us. no matter what we are going thru and need, God meets us there. i am in awe of how He cares for me.

~~ good friends who cheer one up when one needs it, who come alongside when going thru tough times, who laugh with you when you are silly, and who encourage you to keep going when you would rather quit.

~~ for the new church that we have found. the biblical teaching, the exuberient worship time, the friendly people, and the awesome class they have for special kiddos like our son. we are so thankful for the Lord showing us this church and hope to be apart of it for a long time.

~~ for my mom who is my cheerleader with my writing. as an accomplished, published writer herself, and where i must get any gift of writing i have, she takes time out of her busy writing time to encourage me and ask my opinion of her writing. which is an honor for me. tho our styles are different as well as our audiences, i hope her self discipline and love of rewriting will rub off on me.

~~ for my family. the Lord knew what i needed and gave me 2 great guys who are so special. who encourage me, challenge me, support me, and love me. thank you Lord!

so how bout you? what are you thankful for today?
