Thankful Thursday

I haven't participated in Thankful Thursdays in a while. Now is a good time to get back in the game. I have so much to be thankful for today....

1. The faithfulness of our God and the truth of His Word...need I say more?

2. Our oldest daughter Jennifer was able to spend the week with us. Coming home from school

and seeing her on the couch....just like old sweet!

3. Only 30 school days left til summer break!

4. The encouragement and blessing I get from the "blog world". You bloggity friends are

awesome! I love to read what God is doing in your lives...I learn so much.

5. I won the give-away this month at Praise and Coffee! A Mercy Me CD and Starbucks coffee...

does it get any better? Thank you Sue!

6. They sang Shout to the Lord on Idol Gives Back last night!!! Wasn't too happy about them taking out Jesus' name, but what do you expect from the lost? They just don't get it...can't hold them accountable. He was praised cool was that?!

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of his benefits.
Who pardons all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion,
Who satisfies your years with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
Psalm 103: 1-5

Big News!

I have been meaning to make this announcement for a while now. I have known of this since Christmas and couldn't wait to tell my bloggity friends, but as you can see from my sparse posting, I haven't had much time at the computer and what little I have posted hasn't always been that upbeat. So it's time for some really great news, and I want you all to know.........I'M GOING TO BE A GRANDMOTHER!!!!!!!! How cool is that?! And.....we just found out the baby is a BOY! As you can see from my profile, I am the mother of 4 girl world has just been rocked! Along with my oldest daughter, Jennifer and her husband Brandon, we will welcome little "Andy" to our family in August! I'm teary-eyed just thinking about it! Jen emailed the baby's ultra-sound pictures the other day and I fell head-over-heels in love with the little guy. I can't imagine what he'll do to my heart once he gets here. I think I'm done for! What a wonder it is to get to peer into the "secret place" where he is being "skillfully wrought". Wonderful are your works, O Lord! (Psalm 139:13-16) I know absolutely nothing about little boys, but I intend on having a wonderful time learning!

God is so good!
