I really don’t know where to start…and I KNOW you don’t have all day (or night–depending when you are reading this), but I have so much to be thankful for!

Iris is right on target about JOY! That is the first one! JOY is from within! The heart of every believer is filled with the joy of our salvation! Praises flood our hearts and fill the silence!

I am thankful that when I have such a bummer of a day (we all have them) that I can call on sisters of like faith to join in prayer with me and for me! (Thank you!!)

I am thankful for new and good books to read (bought an extra just to giveaway–see below this post)!

I am thankful for a sweet visit with an awesome sister! Lisa Shaw came for the weekend and we had a wonderful time in the LORD! (I don’t know why that picture turned out so small…but we look mighty little don’t we girlfriend!) Lisa has more pictures on her site and so does Susan!

I am thankful for my sweet darlin’ man–who just surprised the daylights out of me (ever had that happen to you?) with some beautiful flowers and it really made my bad-bummer day go away!

I am thankful for HIS WORD! Iris shared this verse: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”~ Romans 15:13 (ESV)

By the way, one BIG thankful I NEED to mention…the bio-natural hormone replacement therapy is working…(except this week—and the stress of life –was more at fault than hormones).

God is so good. All the time. I have more thankfulness, but I better stop right here…I feel the tears starting up.

Mary Snyder and a New Giveaway!

Join the Sisters of Faith in welcoming Mary Snyder to the 2009 Bloggers Retreat!


Mary is one of 8 of awesome women who will be speaking and sharing their heart! I have had the pleasure of talking to this sweet southern sister on the phone just a few weeks ago—and she is PRECIOUS! You will love her to pieces!

You are coming right??

Mary Snyder is an author, speaker, wife, mother, blogger, girlfriend, but above all else a follower of Jesus Christ.

Mary’s walk of faith is a path littered with potholes and missteps. She has fallen in the potholes and tripped over her own good deeds, but the blessing is she serves a Grace‐filled and Merciful Savior who loves her and has called her into His service.

Her less‐than‐perfect life is the driving force behind her passion to see women come to a deeper relationship with the Lord. In truth and in love, Mary shares a message of hope, joy, and adventure in Christ Jesus.

With a passion for God’s Holy Word and a commitment to serve Him, Mary shares her heart with groups and connects with women of all ages.

Mary brings her love of all things girly and girlfriends to women’s groups and shares her heart in a message sprinkled with humor and wrapped in God’s Holy truth.*
