Thankful Thursday

I haven't participated in Thankful Thursday several weeks. And yet, I have so much to be grateful for.

* I'm grateful for my husband, who has been a rock for me during this transition to life in Qatar.

* I'm grateful for my children, who are kind and loving and considerate of me.

* I'm grateful that I have finally begun to feel a little bit like people know who I am. Feeling like a stranger all the time is painful.

* I'm grateful for our home here. While it's still coming together, it's a lovely home and I can't wait to make it feel like it's really "homey."

* I'm grateful that God taught me so much during the Bible study I just completed, "Discerning the Voice of God." It's an excellent, excellent study I can highly recommend.

* I'm grateful that God is so wise. I've been going through some minor stuff here and I feel like God is just speaking to me and guiding me so clearly. Just when I need to hear His voice, I do. I'll be sharing more about this in the next day or so, so let your curiosity drive you crazy. LOL!! There's nothing earth-shattering, just a delight to see how God smoothes our way for us.

It's so good to come to the Lord and to tell Him we are thankful. We so often forget to say thanks and just go about our way. But we are commanded throughout Scripture to be thankful. In the good times, and bad times. Even when we think there is nothing to be thankful for, we are called to still be thankful.

So what can you find to be thankful for today? To see what other women are saying, click on the box above and visit Iris.

Glad to 'see' you back, Lori. I am glad that your transition to Qatar is working. I was wondering about you the other day - don't ask me why...
Thank you so much for sharing the link to the study - I have to check it out. Maybe it is something I need right now.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us again...

Blessings to you and yours...
