Thankful Thursday

How? How can it already be Thursday? It was just Monday! I really think the days are out of order this week or something, LOL. But, okay! If it's Thursday, then it's a great day to be thankful, so I'll just jump right in!

*I'm thankful that "the name of the LORD is a strong tower and that the righteous runs into it and is safe." Prov. 18:7

*I'm very thankful that God is teaching me that "the fear of the LORD leads to life so that one may sleep satisfied, untouched by evil." Pr. 19:23

*I'm thankful I can lean on, fully trust in, place the weight of my confidence on God. And as I lean on Him He faithfully teaches and counsels me. I'm thankful for scriptures like John 13:23, Prov. 16:20, Ps. 143:8, Ps. 56:3, Isaiah 12:2, and Is. 26:3,4 reminding me to lean fully on Him.

*I'm thankful for time in His Word each day where He has been teaching me all of the above. It's my most precious time of the day, whenever I can get it. And He makes it happen by His grace!

*I'm thankful for a very productive week of school with my kids. We've really cranked out the schoolwork this week and have done some fun projects as well. I'm thankful that today there is a nice, beautiful gym that is letting homeschoolers have it for 2 hours for "open gym" time. And I'm thankful that mine are old enough to leave. there. And I'm thankful for the pedicure place nearby. :)

*I'm thankful for two really great phone conversations with godly women this week. I try to limit my phone time and not spend much time "chatting" but God opened up two really great chunks of time for me this week to talk to two friends and really have some edifying conversations. SO refreshing!

*I'm thankful that you stopped by my blog today! I hope you are thankful, too!

Be sure to stop over at Iris' and read more thankful posts or link your own. Have a terrific Thursday!

I love those verses. I just taught a bible study to my SS class on the names of God with the first verse being the key verse.

I love that you can leave your children for 2 hours and get a pedicure - you deserve it!! :)

Have a great weekend, Cyndi!

Godly friends are a true gift. I am thankful to have quite a few in my life!

I hope you had a wonderful pedicure! When I was working as a colorist in an awesome salon I had the option of having pedicures done, but I never did! I am kicking myself now! What I wouldn't give...

Your first verse under this post is one of my favorites. I am so thankful for God being my strong tower.

Have a wonderful week!

Sounds like school is going well. I'm glad you've had a bit of time to do a couple of things for you.

I so know what you mean - the days are just flying past me that I think someone is snatching up days - lol.

I love His Word and digging into it or just listening to it brings me great joy.

How cool that you are as home-schoolers have the opportunity to use a gym -- an you go a well deserved break :)

Thank you so much for sharing your thankful heart with us this week.

Blessings to you and yours.
