Please join Lynn at Spiritually Unequal Marriage for Thankful Thursdays.

I am thankful for many things ....what exactly ~ you are asking? I will share :)

My new Bible study titled Anointed Transformed and Redeemed with Priscilla Shirer, Beth Moore and Kay Arthur ~ It has already spoken volumes to my heart and I love learning and growing deeper in the Word! Thank you Lord!

Friends ~ I have been able to spend some time this week catching up with some friends ~ having lunch. It seems like I haven't seen anyone in so very long since I was gone for most of December and with the holidays so catching up with them has been such a gift. God has blessed me with such wonderful friends here at home and in this blogging community! Thank you Lord!

Ministry and Church
~ I feel the Lord is leading us back into ministry and into a traditional church. We have been a part of a home church for awhile and this season is ending so we are seeking HIS will and where exactly HE wants us ~ It is fun and exciting to see what the LORD will do!! I am soooo ready! Thank you Lord!

Patience ~ from you all. I have not been able to get around to soooo many blogs and I feel awful. It means so much to me to have your friendship and comments so when I am not visiting you and sharing my heart I miss each one of you, and I feel awful! So, thank you for your patience. I am hoping things will be calming down soon. I will be returning to Florida soon to see my Stepmom. It will be good and very hard to be back at Dads but I know it will also be healing as well. (not sure how that popped up LOL) Please know that my not visiting doesn't mean I don't care just means life has gotten tooo busy and I will be back SOON.
Thank you Lord for my bloggy friends patience.

Mentors in this blogging community ~ I have found some blogging friends that have come to truly be mentors! They are such a gift to me and I learn from them everyday whether it be in their posts or for some the relationship has grown and we email or even talk on the phone. I love this and the fact that I never would have found them if it wasn't for this blogging community. One sweet lady I would like to share with all of you because she is soooo full of wisdom and has an amazing beautiful heart for the Lord is Kathleen ~ The Sassy Granny. She began blogging for her grandchildren, in hopes that her words will inspire them for many years to come. What a heritage she is giving her family but because of the blog I am able to reap these benefits as well! Thankyou Lord for Kathleen and others who are such godly examples and bless me as I sit at their feet learning daily!

I will end with this one ....I am very thankful for Maggie and Tyson becoming friends and playing together, sleeping together and having fun!! I was so worried about Tyson for a few days which I shared in a post but almost immediately after posting that they began playing and he has warmed up to her more and more each day! THANK YOU LORD :)
here is a sweet pic of the two of them sleeping with my son ♥

Love and Blessings,



I am very thankful for you dear, and your precious heart. I love you.

The Real Me!

I admit I"ve missed you girlfriend. I have to say that your bible study sounds wonderful. I really enjoy each of those ladies!
I'm glad that things are starting to get back to normal for you!!
You know I'm here if you need me.


Everything happens in His perfect time...I pray for the Lord to continue to guide you, protect you, for His comfort, love and grace to cover you and your family at all times. I pray many, many sweet and loving memories with your dad will strengthen you as you go back to his house.

Me, too. I'm grateful to have met many wonderful bros. and sisters in Christ here [like you]. And Sassy Granny? She's awesome! A woman of wisdom. If Proverbs was not complete, she would have been the Prov.32 woman. I agree with you. She is so gifted with her writing, as she is following the Lord. So close.

What a sweet pic you posted! That's a great thing that your "babies" are getting along well. But your son seemed to not want to let go of Maggie. It's cute.

Take care sis. And you inspire me, too. With the things you learn from Him. So, keep us posted. God bless you richly and may you have a wonderful week! Love you in Christ.


Loren this was a great post and a wonderful list of blessings. The bible study sounds good, and there is nothing like a group of ladies that you love lunching with and enjoying each other sometimes. And the pic of your son is ADORABLE. I am definitely going to check out that woman's blog now, she not only sounds just wonderful, but I so know her heart. Blessings, Debbie


Beautiful list of thank you's! Maggie and tyson are adorable together. I knew it would all work out. I do miss you, but know I totally understand. Life has been a bit crazy around here, too.
Hugs and prayers,


Loren, how sweet of you to go and visit your stepmom. I'm sure you will be a comfort to her during this grieving time for the both of you.

I love Kathleen of Sassy Granny too. And do you know what? We're planning to get together soon. We both live in the Phoenix area. I wish you could join us too.


Raise Them Up

What a sweet picture. I sure know how it is to get swept away in the "busy-ness" of life! Sometimes it is so hard to find time to connect. Unfortunately, those are probably the times I long the most to do so.

I hope things settle down soo for you. :)

Many Blessings

He & Me + 3

What a cute picture. I think that is wonderful that you are being lead back into ministry...I know your will do great. Your heart is just beautiful


Dear Loren,
Thank you for your words today on my post.
I'm sorry for your loss, too.

Beth E.

What a wonderful list! Truly things for which to be thankful.

I agree with you about Kathleen. She is a dear blog friend for me, too. I've learned a lot from her...I tease her, telling her she's increasing my vocabulary with those big words she uses. I usually end up going to the dictionary for reference! lol

Don't apologize for the lack of blogging. I've been through it myself. Seems that a lot of other people have, too. It's a busy time in everyone's lives!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


Hi Lauren,
I could almost see your gentle and kind heart. I felt your excitement about your new church in the future.

wonderful post and I completely agree with you about the many friends in our online community. Amazing. Happy TT and see you again next week. Hugs.
