Thankful Thursday




Sonya at Truth 4 The Journey has invited us to join her and list of five things for which we are thankful.




1) I am thankful that the Lord uses the chirping of birds around our house and yard to bring my mind around to thinking about Him and his awesome creation. This morning they are really chirping away. I often wonder what they are saying to each other...

2) I am thankful for our daughter's friends. They are a close group who love to do things together and most of them are in the same youth group- so they also encourage each other in their walk with the Lord. What a blessing.

3) I am thankful for the high level of health care and excellent hospitals that are available in our area. Our university hospital was just given a high rating in a national award.

4) I am thankful for summertime and the change in schedule and the wonderful seasonal veggies! Farmers Markets are such a blessing to us city dwellers:) uh-hem- I'm a country girl at heart:)

5) I am thankful for this refreshing, comfortable summer weather we are having. It doesn't drain your energy or your pocketbook (for a/c) as badly as hot summers. If you are having high temps, I hope some of this weather front reaches you soon:)

Have a happy Thursday!

I so agree with #5! I am so thankful that we haven't had to use the A/C as much this year. Just some at night. I love the weather like this, not too crazy about the heat! Enjoyed your list!

Such a wonderfu list! Our summer weather is heating up. It is starting to get up around a 100 degrees. This is so hard on my hubby as he works out of doors and on roofs sometimes. I pray for him everyday during the summer for God's protection and mercy from the heat. Gotta love those fresh veggies. One of my favorite summer time thing is corn on the cob! Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Elena

Your list is wonderful...the chirping of the birds wakes me each morning. Better than any alarm clock. A blessing for sure...

Have a wonderful evening!

Linda, that's a very good list. I've not stopped by your blog lately and wanted to stop by and say hi and see how you were.

Hope you have a good weekend☺

We have so much to be thankful for, even this cooler weather! We won't be turning on the a/c tonight. Have a great weekend!

Linda.....
I am so sorry!!!!--I just remembered that you asked me awhile ago about the roofer that we had used! Duh....it completely slipped my mind!

I asked Josh, he said he honestly did not remember the name of the company and does not still have their number. :-( I hope you can find someone good to do it!


Your blog is so pretty. :-)

Great reminders of how much we have in this country and as you said how much God gives to us for enjoyment in his ceation.
