Thankfulness Thursday Week 38 of 2014

Today is September 18th.

Today I am thankful for a new (to me) Bible Study that I am attending with my sis-in-law. It is on my favorite book of the Bible. Ruth. Here is the book we are working through:

The Girls Still Got it.

One of the other things I am thankful for today is it is our monthly sister dinner tonight. Woo Hoo!! Girl time.

Have a great week. Next week will be Fall hard to believe already.

Thankfulness Thursday Week 37 of 2014

Today is September 11th.

Today I am thankful for our God who is in control. As we remember what happened thirteen years ago on this day. I pray we also remember that God has a plan and He will prevail.

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”
 Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.

He will cover you with his feathers,

    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
 You will not fear the terror of night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,

nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,

    nor the plague that destroys at midday.
 A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.

You will only observe with your eyes

    and see the punishment of the wicked.
 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
 no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.

For he will command his angels concerning you

    to guard you in all your ways;

they will lift you up in their hands,

    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

You will tread on the lion and the cobra;

    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.
 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.

Thankfulness Thursday Week 36 of 2014

Today is September 4th.

Today I am thankful that the hubby has a job. He told me yesterday that he would be trying to get another part-time job to help pay down debt and to help pay for our son wanting to be in indoor drumline. It is hard for me. I want him to be patient as we are slowly able to pay down debt. Our family wants the time with him.

At least he has a job as there are still others trying to recover from the recession STILL. It is hard.

God is good and we thank him for his provisions.

Thankfulness Thursday Week 35 of 2014

Today is August 28th.

The past 3 weeks my oldest has been in band camp every day for 6 hours. Friday night we had a preview of what their competition marching program will be. It was wonderful. The next day we went up to Mt. Charleston for a family picnic. My hubby's 2 sisters, their husbands and his mother were all there. What a beautiful end to the summer. We ate junk food, took a hike and played Aggravation. So much fun. The boys started school this past Monday and it has been a whirlwind week. We are all looking forward to the 4 day weekend.

Me and the oldest on our hike.
Ready for instructions.

Today I am thankful for the opportunity that music provides for our children and for the way that music increases learning. I am also thankful for the wonderful cool (to us) summer we've had. Only a couple of 115 degree days and mostly in the low 100's.

Thankfulness Thursday Week 34 of 2014

Today is August 21st.

Yesterday we had a lot of rain come down in 30 minutes. Flash flood season is in full swing. Today the sun is shining and the air is clean. Thank you Lord for the rain and the rainbow.

 Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him: “I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you and with every living creature that was with you—the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ark with you—every living creature on earth. I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.
 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds,  I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.  Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”
Genesis 9:8-16

Thankfulness Thursday Week 33 of 2014

Today is August 14th.

Yesterday was the anniversary of my hubby's great aunt Georgia Lou's death. She was a great Christian influence to my hubby. When he was a baby he threw up on her but it didn't stop her from proclaiming that if anything happened to his mother she wanted that baby. The hubby's mom and Georgia Lou were close in age and like sisters. Hubby spent a few vacations in Austin, Texas with Georgia Lou and once we were married we visited her three times once just us and then one with our first child and last with both children. She loved our boys and they loved her. Today I am thankful for the influence that Georgia Lou had on all of our lives.
