Giving Christmas

Please join me on Thursday at Laced with Grace as we peek into the lives of the shepherds on that special night so long ago. I pray your heart will be blessed this year as you center your focus on the Reason….Christ the King!

A Thankful Heart

But Mary kept all these things, and pondered [them] in her heart. Luke 2:19

What joy must have coursed through the heart of Mary and Joseph as they examined their newborn Son! What thankful hearts they must have had!

I am so thankful today for the blessings of heaven that has flooded my life, my husband, my children, my grandchildren, my parents, my grandparents my siblings and their families…and many more family members and friends that are so dear.

I am thankful that my family will gather together at my house for Christmas this year.

I am thankful that even though things seems tough at Tiffany’s house this year….praying for an unsaved spouse is making it so….God is working. I am thankful for the little ones that have blessed our home through Tiffany and Jared. Her three and his two! Ahem…five is what that is….

I am thankful that Tiffany made Christ the Lord of her life in September of this year.

I am thankful for Lynn and Dineen who took my child on their hearts and cried out to God on her behalf. They did not know her….but they didn’t have to. God knew exactly where she was and how to reach her heart.

I am thankful that April and David are happy and healthy and working for the Lord in their church. I am thankful that little Cy is a growing, happy active little man!

I am thankful that God is Lord of my life and keeps close watch over me.

I am thankful for His mercies, for they are new every morning!

I am thankful for the coming 2008. Who knows what is in store….just keep your hand in God’s hand….you will feel His strength and love as He guides us through to fulfill His purpose for our lives.

I am thankful for Laced with Grace …..and what each writer has written on the pages of my heart this year.

I am thankful for Christian Women Online Magazine…for the love and encouragement of Darlene….the love of new friends I have met….if I start naming names I will forget someone dear to my heart….so just know that each of you have touched my heart in an amazing way.

To be blessed by more Thankful Thursday posts, head over to Lynn and Dineen’s place at Spiritually Unequal Marriage….it will definitely bless your day!
