If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Thankful Thursday

I'm joining Iris at Grace Alone for my second week of playing along with Thankful Thursday. Click here if you'd like to play along too.

God has blessed me with wonderful parents and I'm so thankful for them.  Earlier this month my parents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary and my dad turned 82 and my mom turned 77 and all three things are on the same day.  They are both in relatively good health (my dad still lays carpet for friends and mom can still out-work me on any day of the week).  They are such kind and giving people and are just a lot of fun to be around.  I can't imagine this world without them and hopefully I won't have to for a long time yet.  They raised us with good Christian values and taught us about serving the Lord.  But they didn't only just teach us that, they have always lived it daily in front of us.  Thank you God for such wonderful parents.  I certainly didn't deserve them but will be forever grateful for them.
I love you Mom and Dad!
