Thankful Thursday

Praising God for:

~long-awaited & much-needed answers

~cooler temperatures in the forecast

~friends who bow their hearts and knees to the Father on my behalf.

~a husband who loves me, even when I am selfish, ungracious, and unkind

~the mercy of God & the atonement for my selfishness, ungraciousness and unkindness.  Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe!

~the conviction of God regarding my place of service to Him and to my husband

~the upcoming turn of the calendar page.  One step closer to December and college graduation!

~His sovereignty, and the peace that gives. Although, I confess I need to keep reminding myself of it so that I don't give in to the temptation to micromanage our current circumstances.

You are absolutely right to be thankful for music floating through the air in your home as CJ practices the piano. Harry was practising his recorder earlier - I think calling that "music" is a stretch at the moment....

I too am thankful for the turn of the calendar coming up -- October is my favorite month :) I'm glad you liked the banner!

Hope you enjoy your cooler week-end too. Anticipating 60 degrees makes me want to bake something with cinnamon and apples.
