thankful Thursday



It is Thursday again...wow! Iris has many joining her today on this day in which we offer our thanks so please go see others grateful hearts and join in if you want!

Today I am thankful to say....

The are allowing my Dad to go home!!! He is going home on Oxygen but it is only when he is up and around. His spirits are great as usual and he is proven to be a fighter no matter what comes his way! This I am so thankful for!

I am thankful to be returning to Florida even for a week! and this time my brother will be joining me the latter part of the week! wahoo!

I am thankful for the gift of friendship! I have been blessed with the love of my friends here at home and by so many of you in the blog world! I see the Lord in each and everyone of you and it humbles me and fills me with so much LOVE!!

I am thankful for the gift of a handwritten letter.....how many times do we make the daily walk to the mailbox and pull out nothing but ads, bills, and yet when you see a special stamp and stickers :) along with your name handwritten you know you what a joy that can bring! Inside I received a note from my dear friend Kat at HEART2HEART. She sent such encouragement and love and it just made my day!! Thankyou Kat

I am so thankful that my kids are adjusting to school so wonderfully. They have great teachers this year and truly are enjoying school so far!!

and to the Lord..... I am so thankful for HIS daily and sometimes hourly touch, word, peace and overall assurance that HE is with me, strengthening me and allowing my honest and transparent worries, fear and concern over these past few days to just be covered by HIS grace and mercy. He is Faithful and JUST. HE is LOVE. HE is my STRONG TOWER and knows that while I may allow these things to enter my mind or consume my thoughts at times HE waits for me to crawl into HIS lap, HE longs to bring me security and hope and for me to understand that NO MATTER WHAT .....HE IS WITH ME.

What a beautiful "thank you" list. GOD's heart is most definitely smiling on Kat at Heart 2 Heart. She is a blessing to many of us.

As GOD continues to reveal Himself to you at every twist and turn we are with you...crying, praying, laughing, and praising!

Love, hugs, and prayers, andrea

Loren,

What great news is contained in this one post! Yeah! your dad is coming home!!! People will generally do better at home than in a hospital. I hate those beds. They are just never as comfortable as your own.

SO glad that you got my card! It's just is so nice when you get something in the mail because it makes you realize, hey somebody thought of me and wrote this. Can't wait to send you even more!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Glad to hear that your dad will be able to go home. The Lord is always faithful and thanks be to Him for all answered prayers. That is so great that you'll be able to see your dad with your brother. Keeping you always in prayers. God bless and love you in Christ.

Loren, that is wonderful that your dad is getting to come home. God is good! You are going back to Florida for a week? And your brother is coming with you? That is wonderful that you both can be there. Is your brother born again?
Kat is so sweet. Isn't she? Always thinking about others! Can you even believe that God has made the connections that He has between all of us. I just love it. I love feeling like I have friends all across the country and some even out of the country. He is uniting His body. Isn't that cool?
I am so glad to hear that everything is going well with your kids in school so far too. My kids are all doing well also. Rachel is really liking high school. I am happy about that. She seems to be making some new friends. I am really happy about that! :) (Lord, direct her to the friends that you would have her to have.) I am continuing to pray for your kids too!
When are you leaving for Florida?
Have a great weekend,
Christy
