Thankful for Mother and Grandbuddy!


My mother was blessed with the most awesome gentle man as her loving husband on January 6, 1990. He became what is officially–and affectionately known to each of our family members and many of my friends as, Grandbuddy.

The pathway for each of our lives has been greatly influenced by our sweet mother. She has been the stability that was needed, and necessary in the precarious world in which we live. She remains as such today. I love you mother. I love you Grandbuddy.

I am also thankful for my sweet man! The thirtieth of June we will celebrate 26 wonderful years of love—through all the trials that have rolled our way….the love continues to remain steadfast. Thank you Lord for the companion of my heart.

I am thankful for each family member. Not every one has the blessing of having your sisters as your best friends, sister-in-laws as dear sisters, or your brother-in-laws as dear brothers—but I have that! Thank you Lord for my dear brother who is faithfully serving his country in a foreign land, and his sweet wife and dear baby girl who are holding down the home front. Our children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters, all wonderful treasures!

I am thankful for the Word. For what He reveals when I am digging in the Word. For the “verse of the day” that I get from Aimee! I am thankful for job, home, church and friends. Not necessarily in that order! I am thankful that we have such an awesome church family—who share and pray for our needs and burdens.

I am thankful for old hymns (one particular sweet song that Bernadine reminded me of this week!) and I am thankful for new worship songs! The message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ rings true and goes forth in both!

I am thankful for an awesome “surprise” I recieved the is week….mmmm—my tea sure tastes sweeter in this “truthful” mug! Thank you sweet friend!

I am thankful for Iris who hosts this awesome and growing group of Christ followers! Our desire is to not only “pray without ceasing” but to have thankful hearts—even in the trying and painful circumstances of our lives. Even as I type this, my mind and heart pauses on the hard thing of the past week. It has filtered into this week and caused a few tears. But I know that God has His hand upon His children. He does not slumber.

“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” ~ Colossians 3:12-14 ESV

The book of Colossians is chock full of amazing scripture. This is the third time this week that references from Colossians have been given to me or I’ve come upon. Must mean that the Lord is directing my heart and life to dig in!

[As a side note….I have decided that since I am such a “poor” hint giver—I will tell you tomorrow what the “gift” for the give-away is for Mother’s Day…and I will share with you why I have chosen this specific item. The drawing will begin with all comments from now until April (when you say “enter me”), you do not have to post my blog give-away on your blog, but if you choose to do so, that is sweet–and I thank you.]

Back on Thankful Thursday….I love Thursdays—I love reading what everyone has to share. I am always uplifted and encouraged to see and visit with other sisters-in-Christ as they pour their thankful hearts out to magnify the Lord.

So, head over to Iris’ place and get caught up in the thankfulness of Thursdays!!!

    That’s so lovely your mom has a great husband to share her life with now. And yes I DO love the book of Colossians 🙂

  • Jennifer

    Please “enter me”. I am guessing it isn’t as much as your hints as it is us multi-tasking commenter’s for the reason of us not getting it. I have been trying but my focus probably isn’t completely there. I am usually folding laundry or something while I am catching up on blogs.Smiles!BTW-Sorry about having a nasty comment. Why do people have to do that anyway?

  • Denise

    I just read the above announcement (was wondering earlier why you had moderation on)…You know – I don’t understand people. Why be ugly if you don’t agree with a post?I love the photo of your mom and her beloved. It speaks full of love.Isn’t God amazing when He directs us to Scripture passages – it always happens to me. So when I am done with Acts, I will ‘tackle’ either Isaiah or Jeremiah. OT lessons are hard for me; not sure why.Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week, sweet friend.Be blessed today and always.
