Thankful Thursday

>> Wednesday, March 4, 2009

As Iris, who normally hosts Thankful Thursday, is taking a sabbatical from blogging, I want to say thank you to her.

We give thanks to God always for you all,
making mention of you in our prayers;
Remembering without ceasing your work of faith,
and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ,
in the sight of God and our Father;
I Thess. 1:2-3

My life has literally been changed because of my connection with Iris and Thankful Thursdays. I have grown as I have focused my heart and my mind on gratefulness to my heavenly Father. God has opened my eyes to those little things that He brings across the path of my life that I used to take for granted.

So Iris, I'm so very thankful for you and the influence that you have had upon me and hundreds of other bloggers.

I pray that God would bring clear direction to you and refreshment and renewal as you seek His face for the next step. And that He would fill you with all the fullness of His precious love and wisdom and understanding.

And as for being thankful for other things, I'm thankful that I celebrated my birthday this week and it was a precious time of friends and family loving on me. I am so blessed!

Happy Birthday and you are right, Thankful Thursday is a huge blessing! I am new to it, but love the idea of focusing on blessings! Thanks for blessing me with your comment on my blog about your grown children talking about their antics as kids. It is fun to hear from the perspective of someone with grown-up kids!
