Thankful for YOU

Kim of Seasons of my Heart has blessed me with a sweet award! I am undeserving of any awards…but am grateful for Kim and all the others that I visit with weekly, ladies, each one of you lighten my heart and all those that read your words seeking God. We find HIM there! Everytime I click to a new bloghome—I find Christ’s love seeping out into the place where I am in need.
The joy and privilege of being able to hug the necks of my sweet bloggity buddies has still left me overwhelmed! Girls, I shall never be the same! The Lord has already prompted my heart about my first posts for Laced with Grace and Internet Cafe`. I am undone when I think He could possibly allow a simple southern and very much a country girl like myself be used to further His kingdom. But I am His for the using.

Iris, I am thankful for so very much tonight. The sweet readers would get tired of reading all the things I have to mention…so, feel free dear one if you must hurry on to the next blog. But I am thankful for….
Good traffic flow both going to North Carolina and coming home…
For not getting “stuck” in the elevator when my bag got hung on the hand rail and the elevator started making “beeping” noises and scaring me half to death!…
For a fresh vision of His purpose while we were away…
For time with Aimee and all the New Friends (I will miss someone if I start naming names) we met while there…
For my mouth finally beginning to heal from the ulcers that covered the top inside from all the stress of meeting with the editors—which turned out…girls, they put their “drawers” on just like we do!…
For the new Mary Kay makeup we are selling…and wearing…we wore it all weekend and my face didn’t “melt” off! It STAYED ON!!…
For coming home to clean sheets and my own soft bed…aahhhhh…
For the day off on Monday to get my laundry done and my suitcase unpacked…
For a wonderful Bible Study tonight on Proverbs…you guessed it…31! (and about being a MOM!)
Mostly, I am thankful that God gives me a second chance when I mess up and don’t pay attention to what He tells me to do the first time…(more about that in my first post with LWG)
I am thankful for my relationship with God, for Him loving me enough to give His only Son to die for my sins.
For loving me at my most unloveable…all the way to the cross. If you happened on this blog and want to know more about the plan of salvation…I urge you to click on the “READY” button on my side bar. Get to know Him on a personal basis. Find a group of ladies that can encourage you and mentor you along in your walk with Him. We are on a journey…and many, many times it feels uphill all the way. But hold on and keep on. We are almost home.
