Thankful Thursday Link Up - v 10

{a weekly link up}

Welcome back!

As always, there is so much to be grateful for in my life.
It is so important to remember that, even when times are challenging, there is often something you can find to be thankful for.

I am thankful for this blogging community.  I am grateful for the friendships made and for all the love shown in this community.  I value this very much and I appreciate all of you!  I am excited and thankful for the opportunity to do a guest post today over at Bonhomie Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry.  Thanks, Kirstie, for the opportunity!

I am thankful for the opportunity to do an ongoing 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 $57 through this fundraiser!  I am grateful, as is she, for your generosity and support!  I am honored to be contributing to this very worthy cause!

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'm in a "quiet" season right now, but grateful all the same for those who show an interest in what I am offering.

As always, I am so thankful to have an amazing church home.  I am super excited about the opportunity to be attending a women's conference today and tomorrow called Chosen.  I am so grateful to have the opportunity to hear Jo Saxton, Helen Lee, and Lisa Bevere speak over the next couple days.  I am thankful for this opportunity for God to speak to me through this experience.

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.

I am thankful for God's provision.  My word for this year is endure.  I often feel weak in this area - falling into the temptation of complaining about the things that aren't right in my life.  I am thankful for the strength that God gives me to endure - to press on through these feelings.  I still feel very weak, but I'm trying.

I am so very thankful for God who 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?

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.
