Thankful Thursday Link Up - v 13

{a weekly link up}

Welcome back!

I am thankful for this blogging community.  I am grateful for the friendships made and for all the love shown in this community.  I am grateful for the opportunity to reach out to others and to potentially make a difference for someone.  It's not about the numbers, friends.  It's about sharing the goodness greatness of God in my life.

I have mentioned this adoption fundraiser each Thursday because it's important to get the word out there, but I am truly 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 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!  Jessica and her family are facing a sizable fee at the moment.  Any help she can get towards this would be much appreciated!  Thanks for considering it!  We are all part of one larger community.  I love the fact that we can reach out and help others within that community through something like this.

I am so thankful for my little Etsy shop.  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 say that every week.  But that's because it is the truth.  Aside from my family and friends, my church home is most important in my life.  

I am grateful for the opportunity this weekend to have an afternoon of respite with Ron thanks to a home nurse for Peyton and the special needs ministry at church who will look after Moira even though she's the sibling of a special needs child!

I am thankful for having been connected with some amazing women of God at church.  I am so grateful to have been brought into a huddle where this small group of four women has a mission of discipling others.

I blessed to be a part of Sisterhood Mornings and am grateful for each of the women at the table that I am leading.  I am also grateful for the opportunity to lead a table this semester!

I am so incredibly thankful for a wonderfully supportive family.  

I am so very thankful for my amazing husband and for all he does to support this family.  I am also blessed and grateful that he works with me to help encourage me in the things that I need to build me up both spiritually and as a person in general.

I am thankful for my children.  For the blessings that they are to me.  For everything that they have taught me.

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?
(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.
