Thankful Thursday



I truly look forward to Thankful Thursday. It is so uplifting to read the words poured out from thankful hearts. Thank you Iris for providing this special place where we can share thanksgiving and praise.

Today I'm thankful that God is always God. His character never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Even if I'm having a bit of a moody day (I'm just saying...), He is totally unaffected by my attitude. He waits for me with the same love and acceptance He always offers to get over whatever is bothering me and come and visit with Him. I am far too prone to let my moods affect my relationship with the Lord. I am so thankful He isn't. Please forgive me Father for the way I have acted today. Instead of turning from you I should be running into Your open arms. Forgive my selfishness and self-pity.

I am thankful for answered prayer. We had a safe and delightful vacation. The Lord even held back the rain so we could enjoy the music and testimonies at the Gospel Sing. It was the very thing I had prayed for - a time of rest and refreshment.

I am thankful that choir has started back up again. It is such a joy to sing praises with so many other people. We are so blessed to be a part of this ministry.

I am thankful for the young women I have met in this amazing blogging community. I am so encouraged as I read about your lives. Family is so important to each and every one of us. Our children and grandchildren are precious gifts. Chris had posted a prayer on her blog for her children, and our children and grandchildren, as they return to school. It is a beautiful prayer. I encourage you to join her in praying for our children.

I am thankful for the special people God places in our lives. It was so good to reconnect with friends we haven't seen for weeks at choir practice last night. It is good medicine for the soul I think.

Blessings,

How wonderful to be apart of a choir! I haven't been in ages- however, I remember like yesterday being a part of a huge youth choir. We were between the ages of 14-25ish, and there was about 75 of us...it was such a powerful experience for me!

I always love your Thankful Thursdays, Linda...xxoo

Love and hugs,

I really liked what you said about God is always God and never changes. You are so right in that the one constant we have is God. Thanks!

Hi Linda, You shared such a beautiful Thankful list and I am blessed to have read it this evening. I hope your day today is better as well. I also want to thank you for your kind and thoughtful comment on my blog. You are so sweet and truly touched my heart with your kindness. I have been blessed to be back to your blog (since returning to my blogging routines) and in being able to catch up on your posts. May you have a very blessed weekend with your family. XOXO

Another wonderful Thankful Thursday list. I love how you shared about God's character never changing even though we do. Isn't it great how He's right there to accept and forgive us when we turn from Him? So glad you have a ministry like choir to use your gifts for His glory.

I am so happy that you had a splendid and relaxing vacation. I am 'earning' mine this year - lol...Much going on, but I am thankful for friends like you who go with me through thick and thin...

The Christian blogging community is so beautiful and I am thankful for each and every one that I come across. God is good - He has opened doors for me that I would never would have opened before.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this past week.
Be blessed today and always...
