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


Please click the button above, if you'd like to join in with Thankful Thursday. The place where we are intentionally thankful.

Things I'm thankful for today:

**  Another morning of devotions on the balcony.  And then breakfast on the balcony with my hubby.  It started raining about the time I was finishing eating.  But even in the rain, God's majesty is so evident.  Between the ocean and the sky, I'm not sure which shows God's greatness more to me.  To think, He made all this just for us.

It is absolutely pouring the rain now.  So we are sitting inside and enjoying looking out the window.  The door is open enough so we can still hear the surf.

**  My mother-in-law and I went and saw Chonda Pierce's movie, "Laughing in the Dark" Tuesday night.  It was so good and really spoke to my heart in so many ways.  I love movies that do that.  I'd recommend going to see the movie, but I don't know if they will be showing it again.  But if they do show it again, and you have the opportunity, please go.  You won't regret it.

**  Good books.  I just finished another really good book on our vacation.  This was by Rachelle Dekker (Ted Dekker's daughter) and it is called "The Choosing" and is the first in a new series called The Seer Series.  Oh my!  This was very good.  My oldest told me back in the summer when she read it, that she thought I'd like it.  So I went online at the library and got on the waiting list  for the Kindle version.  I got the email last week that said it was available for me.  I checked it out and started reading.  It was well worth the wait and now I can't wait for the 2nd in the series.  It comes out in the Spring of 2016.  So I guess, I will have to wait.

**  I still have one more week to enjoy this time God has given to hubby and me to spend with each other and also with his parents.  God has just been so good to us.

So what are you thankful for?  Why not write a post on your blog and then link up with Rebecca Jo by hitting the button at the top of this page?


  1. Goodness - I am so jealous of the length of this vacation you are on. So deserved though & glad you are enjoying the relaxing & slowing down of life.
    I need to check out that book. I just hate that most good books are a series now. So many books - so little time! :)

  2. Hi, came over from Rebecca Jo's. WOW a two week vacay at the beach is AMAZING!! And alone with the hubs, that sounds magical!!!

    I'm gonna check out this book. I have read some of Ted Dekker's books, and didn't realize his daughter also wrote. Gonna check this out. Thank you ~~

    Have a Blessed day ~~ dawn

  3. Thanks for the recommendation on the book. I'm always on the lookout for good books to read. How fabulous to be able to get away for 3 weeks ... we can manage 2 weeks away and dream of getting away for a third week. One of these times. Enjoy your time away with your hubby and his parents.

  4. Beautiful view even in the rain! Enjoy the rest of your get-away!

  5. Such a nice LONG break you've been on. How wonderful! So glad you've been able to do this. Always looking for a good book so thanks for the heads up. I just finished reading the second in the series of Angels Walking by Karen Kingsbury. It was soo good. You might try these out if you haven't. Enjoy the rest of your time!

  6. I am very thankful for good books too! I am reading "Notes From A Blue Bike" by Tsh Oxenreider and it is SO good! It is about living simply. What a blessing to have such a sweet time with your hubby!
