Thankful Thursday: 02/18/09

This week Thankful Thursday is all about...
'the little things'

"Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,
That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?"
Proverbs 22: 20-21
I am thankful for sacred words to guide me, to comfort me.

I am thankful to live in a free country where I may worship as I please.
"We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may." (A of F 11)
For positive powerful words from above.
"Now was not this exceeding joy? Behold, this is joy which none receiveth save it be the truly penitent and humble seeker of happiness."
Alma 27:18
For how comforted and strong I feel when I do partake.
For free give-aways on fellow bloggers web page (thank you Smiling Sally:)

I am thankful for the organization of my church.
"8 Behold, mine house is a house of order, saith the Lord God, and not a house of confusion."
D&C 132: 8
I am thankful for Uno's imput in my 6/7 yo Sunday School lessons.
I am thankful for my 6/7 yos who ALWAYS teach me.
I am thankful for Mike for taking my class Sunday for me:)

I am thankful for Valentine's bounty, and that love is a year round thing:)
"Beloved, let us alove one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God."
I Jn. 4:7

I am thankful for the girls I babysit and watching them as they sing to their reflections in the glass.
"Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises."
Ps. 47:6

I'm thankful hubby is recovering from his flu, that he works so hard to provide for my family.
"Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise..."
Prov. 6:6

I am thankful for the promise of seeds.
"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven..."
Eccl. 3:1

I'm thankful Reba insists on being a lap dog, no matter HOW you feel:)

I am thankful that this dirty child has really gone the extra mile to help his ailing great uncle and grandma.
"The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him."
Prov. 23:24

I am thankful this child has his truck running, street legal, and sanded down, getting it ready to paint (and so is Taylor:).
"Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening."
Ps. 104:23

I am thankful for my beautiful best friend

Who follows me everywhere, and not just to beg for food or water!
I feel guilty every time I have to move her.
Now I remember why we got her a kitten.

I am so thankful for my sweet mother, for ALL my children-know I love you beyond words, for my life, and my health. For laughter and tears. For people that care, and people to care about. For my God, and my Savior. God bless you today:)
My goal this year is to soak it up, to bloom where I am planted, and enjoy the ride...
Counting my many blessings naming them one by one...
Join Grace Alone, to join in or see more.
