Thankful Thursday

It's hard to believe that Thankful Thursday has already rolled back around again this week. Though I am new to Thankful Thursday, I really look forward to sharing what I am thankful for as well as reading what others are thankful for each week.


Without futher ado. This week;


I am thankful that God promises me a life of purpose.

I am thankful for the cross.

I am thankful for having more than enough.

I am thankful for gas prices finally dropping.

I am thankful for cooler weather.

I am thankful for a wondferul time that I had with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law on a recent girls' night out.

I am thankful that God promises me a sense of security.
Deuteronomy 31:6 ~ "Be strong and courageous. For the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."

And as always, I am thankful for Dirk and our girls, Morgan and Jaelyn.

You have much to be thankful for, Daphine! What a great thing to do...to sit down and really give some thought to how God has blessed your life. Unfortunately, in today's world, I think that's something many of us never find the time to do.

Thanks for sharing your list...and your blessings! I'm so thankful that we've become blogging buddies. :)

Daphine,

You are so right, I really need to work on saying, "No" to save my own sanity! It may take me awhile, but I'll get there...eventually! :)

Thank you (since it is Thankful Thursday) so much for explaining how to post a link!!! You are a life saver! I have been trying and trying to figure that out, but no success. I even went to the site, "Blogging for Dummies" and STILL couldn't figure it out! So, what does that say about ME? You explained everything so well on Laurin's blog and I finally got it! I did a little test run and it worked!! Thanks a thousand times over, my friend!!

This is a good habit... Thankful Thursdays.

Mod Girl said...

Amen to that!

I'd loved that you wrote that God promises us a life of purpose... a good reminder for me! Sometimes things can seem purposeless or random, but they are ordained and good.

Andrea said...

Wow...now you've got me thinking about everything I'm grateful for today. Thanks. :)

Heather said...

Daphine,

Your list is beautiful. I think people rarely take time out to sit down and be thankful for all of their blessings. Even in the roughest times we truly have a lot to be thankful for!

What a great list I am thankful for cool weather too!

Robin said...

Daphine, I am so sorry for misleading you about Sandy's giveaway! I totally misunderstood the dates....too late at night when reading! Please forgive me. I enjoyed reading your thankful list. Thank you for reminding me to take nothing for granted!
