Thankful Thursday

>> Wednesday, May 16, 2007

Blessed be the Lord
Because He has heard the voice of my supplication.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
My heart trust in Him and I am helped;
Therefore my heart exults,
And with my song I shall thank Him.
Psalm 28:6

I am so very thankful that I can come to Jesus and sit at His feet, drink in His presence and allow Him to fill my bucket to overflowing. (check yesterday's post)

I'm thankful for my youngest son planting some trees and bushes for me last Saturday. He used the gift of digging all those holes as my Mother's Day gift. He's a college student, so he was thrilled that I was happy with the holes as my gift. :)

I'm thankful that we had an amazing Sunday service where a young woman was set free from a broken heart.

I'm thankful that my hubby and I had some precious time with our youngest son on Sunday. The rest of the family was tied up. And we normally have anywhere from 7 to 20 people here for Sunday dinner. It was a nice Mother's Day rest.

I'm thankful that I'm getting the flower garden in shape. The rain that we've had recently has been wonderful, but it slowed down the planting. I'm revamping a couple large areas. Maybe I'll get pictures up when it's complete.

I'm thankful that my children had the foresight to get me a battery operated garden cart for Christmas last Dec. I had it loaded with dirt chunks from planting the trees and pushed the cart with one hand to dump the dirt. With ONE hand!! It's amazing!

I'm thankful that I will get to see my granddaughter this weekend. And we will play "Kissy Bug" - one of those little games that we made up - and we will giggle and giggle.

I'm thankful that I will get to see my great niece this weekend also. She was born in February. We've seen lots of cute pictures, but haven't gotten to hold her yet.

Let your heart burst open with thankfulness to the Lord. For more thankful hearts, head on over to Iris' place.

Blessings on the rest of your week!

I'm thankful for ministry friends and lunch at Applebee's and coffee at Starbuck's. Enjoyed fellowship with your brother yesterday!

Hopefully we keep some sunshine so you can finish your outdoor projects. I was so proud of the few flower pots I planted the other day and then left them under our gutterless eaves and the were drowned by the downpour. What can I say? I'm working outside my gifting. Sigh.

Enjoy time with your Grand daughter this weekend...Grandmas are great gifts and examples for their grandkids. Your family is blessed to have you.

I loved your list. I wish I had the patience to work in a flower garden. Right now, I have to use plants that take care of themselves - low maintenance!

BTW, you asked about my camera. I got a Fuji Film S6000. I love it. I haven't learned all the ins and outs of it yet but it is nice, and not bad price for what it is. We got it from

*smile* - I love that your son dug holes for you so trees and plant could be planted - bless his heart.

With one hand pushing a heavy cart - how cool is that!

It sounds you had the perfect Mothers day.

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

Be blessed today and always.

Your list was gentle, true, and sweet! It is so good to be thankful!

It's only God's grace Patty. :)

Terri @ In His Hands May 17, 2007 at 6:25 PM  

What a great list! I laughed at the gift of holes--that is too funny. I would also love to see garden pics! I'm not a gardener but I love to look at other people's gardens. :)
You sound like an amazing grandmother!


Linda May 17, 2007 at 7:26 PM  

That's a wonderful list. I think you must be a really good gardner. I'd love to see pictures.
Have fun with the little ones. They are a precious blessing.

There's nothing like seeing the captive set free!

Thanks for visiting! :)

I am trying to work on the outside ... but I don't do so well and God fills in the huge missing links! What a beautiful thankful list -- filled with sweet blessings! Thanks for sharing --

I'm thankful for people like you who remind us to be thankful!

OH the beginning of a garden, how I love it. This makes me want to run out and plant something, my problem is I end of killing it in a matter of weeks (it is a running joke around this household). I am with Preacher's Wife, would love to see pictures.


Dirkey May 18, 2007 at 5:55 AM  

awesome list, the garden cart sounds incredible. What a way to spend the day :)

Faerylandmom May 18, 2007 at 4:14 PM  

I loved reading your list! I am very VERY slowly learning a little about gardening. I'm not good at what I do know! Oh well...

Thanks for visiting me too. :)
