Thankful Thursday~

Good morning to everyone!

Here we are on Thankful Thursday!
It has been a while since we have been here
Or blogging at all!
No better place to be than here on Thankful Thursday
What better time to start then Now!
Here at the First Thursday of the New Year
What better way to start the New Year!
With a list full of thankfuls
So many wonderful things to be thankful for
So lets get started.
Isn't it wonderful to be able to make a list and share all the many blessing that you are thankful for?
Come and join the fun
I am linking up with:

Grace Alone

As well as:

First Day of My life

Come and see what others are thankful for.
I know I'm very excited to share the wonders of the Lord through my thankful list
What about you?


  1. Heat to stay warm by
  2. Twinkling Christmas lights to enjoy
  3. Quiet still moments to hear the whisper of the still small voice
  4. Walking - with continued healing
  5. Blankets to snuggle in
  6. Hot irons to curl the hair
  7. Girlfriend time
  8. Pretty flowers from the market to brighten the living room
  9. Having a place to share and express myself
  10. Pain meds that relieve the pain and swelling
  11. Re-connecting with old friends from childhood and high school
  12. Reading the word along with a wonderful devotional
  13. Knowing who holds my future in His hands
  14. Phone calls from my daughters, just checking in to see how I am and to say I love you
  15. Hubby making me coffee and serving me 
  16. Ankle braces to help me gain strength in my ankle as I move forward in recovery
  17. Hancho's squawking and feathers fluttering 
  18. Hand written notes of love and encouragement
  19. Helpful guidance from Mary Kay Corp. as I maneuvered through  an order that I was using the deliver service for. 
  20. Starting my empty jar to fill with good things that happen this year

A simple project to help you stay focused on the good in your life or teach a child how to be thankful.
So many ways to use this awesome idea.
I'm so excited!
Need to get pretty paper!
I think it will be fun to see how many wonderful things I can place in the jar!

My Healing Ankle
Below is two fundraiser links to help with medical bills. 
We have no medical insurance to cover medical.
As I have just started back to work there is still not much of an income.
I will not see a pay check until mid January.
I also am not working the jobs I once had as I am unable too.
I was also released from one of my jobs that paid a bulk of the bills.
Through much prayers and through encouragement of some friends they suggested I give these a try.
Though only two people have responded.
God has been faithful in other ways.
Medical bills are piling up.
Just the few that have arrived already are near $30,000 plus.
And still coming in.
God is faithful and I trust this is alp going to be paid in full;
and every need meet through Him
Thank you!

Hi Bethe! Your Thankful Thursdays were always one of my favourites. I love how you list all your blessings like that. That jar of blessings is a wonderful idea. It really does focus our minds on just how many things we have to be grateful for.
