Thankful Thursday

I have been waiting for today to share with you many reasons I am thankful today!

I am thankful that I have a husband who cares about our children and today he is taking our son away to have some quality time and have "THE TALK" I did this years ago with Jenna. We call it the "adolescent trip." James Dobson has a tape series and he covers everything....peer pressure, purity, body changes, sex and making the decision TODAY to say NO! etc. Moms take their daughters and Fathers take their sons. Go away to somewhere fun and listen to the tapes while driving and you have LOTS of discussions. I have referred back to this time with Jenna in numerous conversations still today. I Highly recommend this but the information is very direct and only you know your children and what information you want them to know.

I am thankful for the gift of friendship. Rosel made a gift for many of us. It is a gift from her heart. She is an amazing woman of God. A prayer warrior and a woman who KNOWS and SHARES the Word with all who come in contact with her. Here in blog-land or those that she meets at work or in her daily life. She a such a blessing and I have come to cherish her friendship more and more! Isn't this beautiful! I can just see and feel the Love she poured into doing this! Thankyou Rosel!



I am also thankful for Kat! She has been such an amazing friend to me. It's like we are sisters! We share a deep bond and the Lord is definately the head of our friendship. Kat had the creative idea to highlight new blogs and she chose mine to be the first one. So during the time I was traveling home she gave this award to me for being her blog of the week. She too, designed this herself! WOW .....these women are so talented! I love this woman and thankyou Kat from the bottom of my heart!




I am also thankful that in a post like this I can share a prayer request and KNOW that you all will pray fervently! That means so very much. From the day I left my dad has gone down hill. He has become extremely fatigued, has no appetite and sleeps alot. I know all of this is because of the treatments so I am not scared or panic but it just is hard to see him like that. Trust me ~ I know this could still be much worse!!! But I am just praying for his Mind. His Spirit, His appetite but still most importantly ....SALVATION.

Love and Blessings on this Thursday....I am oh so thankful for each one of you

That simple gift is not enough to express my sincere thanks and gratitude for your friendship and others I had met here sister!

I'm sorry to hear about your dad. But you know that we will never cease with our petitions.

I honestly believe that many of the inmates grew up not having quality time with their parents or guardians and that's what's sad. You and your hubby are a great example of great, Spirit-filled parenting styles.

The Lord is so good! For providing this precious friendships we all share and that, we can all pray altogether! To God be the glory! God bless you sister and your beautiful family and have a great week! Love you in Christ!

I too love all the wonderful things you posted about everyone. You have a wonderful heart of gold and it's just so amazing that we have met. Just can't wait to finally get together, sit down and just talk! You are such an amazing friend.

Congrats on the award!! I was just stopping by to see how dad is doing. I see fatigue is an issue so I will pray specifically for that. Any other specifics to pray for concerning him or family members?

Much love and prayers to your and yours.

Lord Jesus-----

Would You reach down and touch Doug's body this night? Would You anoint Him in the power of Your Holy Spirit with a fresh HEALING this night from the fatigue he is feeling? And God, would You begin a gradual healing once and for all to rid his body of this cancer? I ask with boldness before Your throne for Your Healing FAVOR to be over him - and as I pray - would You deliver that very answer? In Jesus' Mighty Name and for HIS GLORY ALONE! Amen and Amen!

I'm always amazed that the friendships I have made through blogging and the blessings I have received as a result.

I'm sorry to hear that your dad isn't doing well. I am praying that it is just the treatment and the God will heal him and ensure his salvation.

Regarding the blog design, I resent the last email I sent to you. I haven't received anything after that one.

Love and blessings!
