Thankful Thursday – October 16

“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
I Thessalonians 5:16-18

It has been an eventful week so far – much to be thankful for –

1. I am thankful for the nice rain we had yesterday, and the cool front it brought with it.

2. I am thankful that my son, Ryan, was not injured when a truck turned into his lane and hit him yesterday. His car will probably be totaled, but for the moment is driveable. I thank you, Lord, for protecting my sweet boy!

3. I am thankful that our mainline plumbing clog has been cleared and that we are able to use our bathrooms again! I am thankful for the wonderful invention of indoor plumbing, and doubt that any of us will be taking this convenience for granted for quite awhile.

4. I am thankful for the beautiful colors of the leaves, as they are transforming all around us.

5. I am thankful for our successful garage sale last weekend, and for the wonderful bargains that the Lord blessed us with through our neighbors’ sales.

6. I am thankful for my Dad, whose birthday was last Friday – for the blessing of his life, love, wisdom and care.

7. I am thankful that the Lord is sovereign over everything – including elections – and that His perfect plan will come to pass.

8. I am thankful for our monthly paycheck yesterday and the ability to stock up the pantry for another month.

9. I am thankful that Jeff worked from home yesterday, so that he could be here when the septic serviceman, and finally the plumber, were here. I’m never comfortable dealing with them, and I am thankful that Jeff handles it, so that I don’t have to.

10. I am thankful that God is faithful to provide for all of our needs and that we can rest in that truth.
