Thankful Thursday *praise*


Dove and I together are doing a thankful list.

Dove said that she thankful for ...
food
water
and, the time we spend together with our families.
It is nice to praise because it makes God feel happy that we believe in him.

from the mouths of babes...
I am thankful for the health retuning to my children.
Spending the morning with my daughter and son with no television.
Listening to them talk about Dash's day at school yesterday.

I love being able to stand outside just across the street until his little feet are on the school bus.
Having the freedom to be here ever present, watchful over the children.
Like how God is ever watchful over us.
I get to give them that example.
One day I know it will be an annoyance just like when we know God is watching over us when we wish we could get away with our wrong doing.
That security of knowing we are safe in not being able to get away with anything.

I love that Dove wants to be with me.
Dove said she likes that too.
Joy!
That she is excited about the sick day with mom.

I praise god for the fulfillment of His promises toward me in giving me a daughter after 16 years of empty arms.
A son at 20 years of waiting.
He knows HIS timing is perfect!

I am so very grateful that he is trustworthy.

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
