Thankful Thursday



My heart is filled with Thanksgiving. It is a special week - and an ordinary week. I am thankful that God is in the "every day" things as well as the big things.

I am thankful for the freedom that I enjoy. I know how blessed I am to live in this country - to be able to worship the Lord freely; to have access to the Bible (in abundance); to be able to hear the truth preached in churches and via the media any time of the day or night. I am thankful beyond words for the freedom I have in Jesus. I am free from the guilt of my sin, free from the fear of the future, free from the chains that had me spiritually bound. I am free indeed.

I am thankful for my son - whose birthday we're going to celebrate today. I am thankful for the joy that comes from spending time with family and friends. Thankful that my husband and my son are on the golf course right now (and it isn't raining!!) getting to spend time together.

I am thankful for the good report from my husband's eye exam. With only one eye (and that one not 100 percent) we always whisper a prayer of thanks when the doctor says everything looks fine.

I am thankful for laughter. Something warm stirs in my heart when my husband and I share laughter. There were days I thought there couldn't possibly ever be joy or laughter in this home again, but God.....

I am thankful for good movies. We saw "Evan Almighty" this week and enjoyed just being in a movie theater and not feeling uncomfortable about what we were watching. We also rented "Facing the Giants" and were totally blessed.

I am thankful for answered prayer and for the miraculous privilege of talking to the Living God. It takes my breath away to realize that a Holy God would incline His ear to listen to my prayer - and to answer.

There are many other thankful hearts at Iris' blog - Sting My Heart. Thank you Iris, for faithfully providing this special place.

Blessings,

Wow, I have missed 3 posts! All great, as usual. What a handsome young son you have - and what a cute little girl! Happy birthday to him.

I'm glad the rain has stopped for today. My brother in Oklahoma is getting pretty tired of it as well!

We had a bit on us as we waited for the fireworks to begin, but nothing to measure at all. Just cooled us all off, and actually felt pretty good.

Good thankfulnesses!!

We've been having some hit and miss showers...so far it's "miss" for us here in Bay.

Praise God for your husband's good report on his eye, and for your other blessings.

I have more blessings than I can count. :-)

Love and hugs,

Diane

Praise God for the good eye exam report! And "Facing the Giants" was wonderful wasn't it? I was wondering about Evan Almighty. Good to know it was enjoyable.

I meant to say that we watched "FAcing the Giants" and were really impressed with the fact that a local church did all of that. I have heard good things about "Evan Almighty" - will have to rent it when it comes out. Did you ever get to see "End of the Spear" about Nate Saint and the miracles in Ecuador after the wives of the five martyrs went back there? My brother was the PR guy for that movie and the results in the theater were disappointing. But the movie was really well done.

You are right, Linda. It is wonderful to know that we have true freedom in Him. He took our sin and nailed it to the cross - how precious is that.
I am glad that your husband and son had a great time at the golf-course :). Even better that your husband had a great report from the eye-doctor.
I love to laugh - I am glad that my Sweetheart give me many opportunities to do so :)
Cool that you had fun at the movies. It is so true - there are not many good movies out there *sigh*.
Thank you so much for sharing your thankful heart with us this week.

Be blessed today and always.

What a thoughtful TT list! I praise God w/ you in our freedom in Christ!!! And, praise God for your beloved's good report at his eye exam. Ahh, and laughter is the best medicine! Glad to hear that you saw good movies too. We recently watched(we had purchased it too, so I look forward to watching it again & again!) the movie, Facing the Giants too!--what an inspiring movie!! Thank you for sharing so beautifully! :)
