Thankful Thursday

I thought I would take some time today to be thankful...

I'm thankful for my wonderful husband. Without him my whole world would crater. He is such a rock. He has the most generous spirit. And he loves me like no other. I have the best man around. He is kind and gentle but strong and courageous too. He has the best sense of humor and pulls the funniest pranks. He is great with our kids. He loves God and is a strong spiritual leader for our family.

I'm thankful for our beautiful children. They are a gift from God.

I'm thankful for my precious friends. Without whom I would be in sooo much trouble. I love all the different relationships we have, and God has placed each one in our lives for a purpose.

I'm thankful for my sweet church family. They love us so genuinely and take up the slack where we cannot right now.

I'm thankful for our family. They are our backbone.

I'm thankful for our house. May laughter always abound and love conquer all. May all who enter as guests leave as friends.

I'm thankful for our cars, even though they are getting smaller by the day. :)

I'm thankful for the wonderful food God has supplied the past several months.

I'm thankful for furniture and comfy beds.

I'm thankful for beautiful flowers and cool mornings and evenings.

I'm thankful for rest and relaxation and pray we see more of it in the coming days.

I'm thankful for pretty things.

I'm thankful for music. Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. ~Berthold Auerbach.


What are you thankful for? Leave me a comment and let me know. Have a great day.

  4. Christy,
    You are truly an incredible woman. You are the epitomy of the Proverbs 31 Woman and with that said, whom could expect more?

    I do not get to check on Emma through your blog as often as I'd like, however, when I do, I am always touched with your words of encouragement and your sweet, enduring spirit. I cannot begin to fathom all that you are enduring, however, I do know that God is certainly pulling you through this. There is NO DOUBT in my faith there!

    Girl, I am so thankful for every breath I get to take. I am so thankful for the beautiful boys God has given to me. They are why my heart beats. And then yes, I thank God daily also for our health, the roof over our head, the job which provides for that roof and all that must be provided to maintain that shelter. I thank Him for all the wonderful friends in our lives who make up for the family we do not have. I thank Him for the church home we have to find His Peace in. Our God is so Mighty and So Gracious....wow! We should never ever forget to thank Him for the unthinkable act of sending His Perfect Son to die on the cross for us...so imperfect are we. Yet He loves us so much anyway. You bet...I am thankful for His Immense Love for me!

    Christy, never ever doubt how much He loves you and your sweet, sweet family. Girl, you are making an impact on many lives!
