Thankful Thursday


My Dear Friends.
It is now one week later and I am still Thankful for pain Medication. I have a rare development with a dry socket that had to be bone scraped. I am in so much pain I sit here after THREE pain pins with no relief. Or if there is I'm thankful I'm not feeling the full effect of the pain.
I am thankful that I can endure this.
I am thankful for the presence of my Loving Abba Father God to comfort me in these late sleepless hours.
I am thankful that I am a at home Mom so that I do not have to be employed and experiencing this.
I am thankful for a loving husband.
I am thankful for little kids wishes and prayers that Mom feels better soon (they miss me)
I am thinking of going to an urgent care in the morning I wonder if he broke my jaw?
Thankful... for insurance.
enough to do a co-pay
Thankful for skills, talents bread for lunches to make for them tomorrow.
Good dogs.
I am thankful for the beauty of my diamond ring my beloved gave me for our 25th anniversary it feels good to look at the beauty and to think about how he sacrificed and gave me such a beautiful gift. I had never had a diamond before. Its like looking into infinity.
I am thankful. My heart does overflow with all the goodness around me.
I don't know if I can endure but I do know the one who can cause me to be able too. I am thankful that in suffering my character can be matured to stop eating so much candy and take better care of myself. To stop ignoring and denying my physical needs.
I think in all things there are gifts to gain. I am thankful that I have this perspective right now.
I am thankful to think of the prayers that you are perhaps lifting up on my behalf.
Gratefully yours
Donetta

You are always in my prayers.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
