Thankful Thursday

Sonya hosts Thankful Thursdays and today I am joining her :)

1. I am thankful for the Lord! His Peace and Joy, that today, is definately my strength! Early this morning My daily reading began in Romans 5. The Lord knows just what we need every day and I am thankful for His word that is a lamp unto my feet.

2. I am thankful that even when I didn't know quitting work last May was going to be such a blessing and provide me opportunities like this to be here for most of my summer with my Dad. God already knew :)

3. I am thankful to have the opportunity to see my Dad in a whole new light. To see his strength and perseverance in the battle of his life! Wow.

4. For the prayer covering that my husband gives me daily. Knowing that I am covered provides strength, peace and an assurance that I cherish more than I could ever describe!

5. I am an animal lover and being here has allowed me a new type of love. A horses love. Oh my, When I was preparing to leave the first time to drive my kids back home I went out to tell the horses good-bye. Bailey, a rescue horse is huge! He is only 4 1/2 yrs old but is the sweetest horse I have ever known. He wrapped his head literally around my neck and gave me a hug in a horse way. It was so powerful and touched me deep! I have been praying for Bailey because he has some serious issues with his feet and might not make it. But everytime I spend time with him in the barn I learn how loving these animals are. I am so thankful to have experienced Gods creature and the love that he gives.

Thanks Sonya and for other thankful posts go here


Beth.. One Blessed Nana

Loren - I am so glad that I "met" you in blogland! You have been such a sweet blessing to me.

I stand firmly in prayer for your precious Daddy and for my sweet friend J.D. in their similiar battle against "C".

I enjoyed your list today. Cherish EACH minute you have with Doug. YOu are a special young woman and I know that he is proud to be your father.


And your gratefulness and thankfulness rubs off with me! :) To God be the glory! Have a Happy Thursday! Love you in Christ.



I too have been a horse lover since childhood and feel a connection with most animals. Perhaps that will be a job for me in Heaven! Who knows what amazing things await for us when we get there.

I love your list and this gave me an opportunity to see your vulnerable side! Too beautiful!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Great list Loren! Thankfulness is contagious I think. It makes me think more of all the things I am thankful for too!
Still praying for you and your family.


I am so thankful that you are thankful for this time with your dad, God will bless it abundantly. Keep believing and trusting Jesus for miracles!

Your #4 was the BEST!
Since losing my husband almost 3 years ago after 34 years of marriage - I married the LORD last August 3rd and took HIM on as my [new]husband. He's doing a great job!
Like your husband, Jesus prays over me daily too!!!

Thanks for the visit tonight - it really encouraged my heart! You have no idea!!!

Choosing JOY,
[JESUS - the One I THIRST For]


What a beautiful post.



I join you today in thanking God for His Word. It is sustaining me like nothing else can. I'm carrying a notebook around with me because I never know when the next rhema word is going to hit!

Love you, sweet friend.
