Thankful Thursdays Link Up - v 5


WELCOME TO
THANKFUL THURSDAYS
a weekly link up!

Welcome back!

I am beyond grateful for so much this past week!

As always, I am thankful for this blog and the opportunity it gives me to share a bit about my story and my relationship with Christ with beautiful followers like you.  I am thankful for the friends that I have made through this blog.  I am grateful for each of you!

I am grateful to my friend Skye and her promotion of my Etsy shop the other day on her blog, as well as for helping me to promote my holiday shop hop here on my blog!  Seriously people, check out the shops that have linked up - not just for your current holiday shopping, but for other shopping needs in the future!  And if you haven't linked up, you still can!

I am also grateful to my friend Kelli with whom I am hosting a "12 Days of Christmas" series on our blogs. 

I am thankful for the opportunity to do an adoption fundraiser in my Etsy shop for my friend Jessica.  Buy a coffee sleeve for $4 and I will give Jessica's family $3 per sleeve sold.  I have now given Jessica a total of $27 through this fundraiser, and I have another $3 yet to give her still!  I am grateful, as is she, for your generosity and support!  I am honored to be contributing to this very worthy cause!


I also recently shared a story from my friend Jami who is heading to Mexico with her family to build houses!  Please read her story and, if you are able, contribute to this worthy cause!  You should also visit her blog{Call Me Blessed} because every Tuesday, she does a "We Encourage" link up which blesses me every week!

As always, I am so thankful to have an amazing church home.  I am beyond blessed by the love that I have been shown by our church family.  Whether it's through church staff, worship choir, Sisterhood, Won by One {special needs ministry} or friends we know from church, our family has been richly blessed in so many ways.

I am so thankful for my little Etsy shop.  It's just a tiny little homegrown business.  It's nothing fancy, but it has given me an opportunity to use my talents to make some simple little goodies.  I am so grateful for the sales I have had since I opened up in August and that God has blessed this little business for us!

I am so incredibly thankful for a wonderful family.  For all they do to support us, I am so grateful.  
I am so very thankful for my amazing husband and for all he does to support this family.

And, last but truly first, I am thankful to God.  Thankful that He is always faithful, loving, merciful, and never-failing.  I am thankful for His grace when I fail and for always being there to show me the right path.  I am thankful for his gracious healing, for inspiration, and for hearing my prayers.  I am thankful for the patience He grants me when the answers to those prayers seem to take a lot longer than expected or they don't come in the way I expected.  I am grateful for the abundance of goodness which has blessed our family this week. I am grateful for new mercies for me each morning.

Psalm 9:1 (NIV)
I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NLT)
Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

Is there any way in which I can pray for you?
(for privacy, you can use the email link on the right side bar)

Philippians 4:6 (NLT)
Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything.  Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done.
