Thankful Thursday #1

I noticed this item on several blogs and I thought, 'what a great idea!' Sometimes it is easier to see the glass half empty than it is to see the glass half full. I determined that I would try to take time out each Thursday to think about the many things I have to be thankful for!

1. My Salvation! I am thankful for God's unseen hand on my life. This fact is so humbling, that the creator of the universe would have an interest in me.

2. I am thankful for my family. I love the way everyone comes together to undergird each other in difficult times.

3. I am thankful for friends.

4. I am thankful for a husband who is willing to help me even when I know he must be bone weary.

5. I am thankful for the opportunity to study God's Word with a really sweet goup of women.

There are so many things to be thankful for. We don't need to invent things, they are all around us. Our health, the beauty and spirit of the fall season, our grandchildren and our children. Thank you God, for everything!!!!!!!!!!

John purchased a camera for me today. I can't wait to use it tomorrow. I plan to take a picture of Alaina's toothless smile and Jacob and Josiah enjoying life. Tomorrow, I will attend Mary's volleyball game. She will not be playing in this game, she's been too sick. Her doctor would not be very happy with me if she did. She will simply be there to support her teammates. I am not a technology person, so it may take some time to get pictures set up the way I would like them. Please be patient as I learn. May I remind you, this is not my comfort zone. Have a great weekend!

New Beginnings 1

I am not one to move out of my comfort zone. Blogging, is indeed, out of my nice comfy place. I feel the need to step out so my family and friends can visit with me as I embark on a new journey-joblessness. It seems so strange to be at home and not some place working during the day. I am enjoying the freedom to attend a Bible Study with some new friends I've made. I can cook from scratch, something I've not done for many years. One Wednesday evening, I decided to use convenience foods for our meal-aka macaroni and cheese. Jacob and Josiah, in unison said, "Finally, we get some real food." I, of course, smiled at that comment. I am also wanting this space for the benefit of my son, Mark. He can see up to date pictures of his children, and catch up on all of their escapades. This is also a way my family, living many miles apart, can be a part of our lives. Thank you for your interest and prayers for my wonderful family.
