Thankfulness Thursday Week 30 of 2014

Today is July 24th.

Today I am thankful for my mom. It is her birthday today. She is spending the week in her hometown in California. It is fair time and she will see her brother and several cousins this trip. She needs the getaway and time to regroup and have some time all to herself. My brother and his children (2 teenagers) live with her and her life if very busy helping all of them.

I talked to her this morning and she said it is about 80 degrees there. Today in the desert it will be 111. WOO HOO!! Time for some serious swimming.

Thankfulness Thursday Week 27 of 2014

Today is July 3rd.

Today I am thankful for the religious freedoms we have in the United States. My hubby thinks that soon we will not. I know the Lord is in control.

if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14

Thankfulness Thursday Week 26 of 2014

Today is June 26th.

The year is half over. It is currently over 105 degrees here in the desert. We are loving this dry heat.

This week I am participating in our church's Vacation Bible School (VBS). I have been a part of VBS 25 of the 29 years that I have been a Christian. It is a lot of work but so rewarding so see children learn about becoming a Christian.

Thank you Lord for helping workers to show children your love.

Thankfulness Thursday- but it's Friday again. Week 25 of 2014

Today is June 20th.

On Wednesday I met my best friend from high school for our bi-annual celebration. Her birthday is in December and mine is in June. We meet twice a year for a marathon talk and dinner. We have been close friends since juniors in high school. It is amazing to me that she has stuck by me because I know there have been times when I haven't been the best friend to her that I could have been. We live in the same valley but 30 miles away from each other. We have been to each others weddings, baby showers and relatives funerals. We want to see each other more but life is crazy for both of us. We are of different faiths but are respectful of the others faith. Her youngest child is 5 months older than my oldest.

One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin,
    but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
Proverbs 18:24

Thank you Lord for my good friend Janelle.

Thankfulness Thursday - but it's Friday - Week 24 of 2014

Today is Friday June 13th.

Today I am thankful that my hubby has had the last week off. It was not planned it is a leave without pay. It has been nice to have him home every night. The bonus came this morning when I went to pay bills and found out that he received retroactive pay and a cost of living increase. Praise God for supplying all our needs.

And my God will meet all your needs according to the
 riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:19
