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

It's time for Thankful Thursday again.  I'm so thankful to Rebecca for keeping this going every week.  I need that to help me remember to look back on the week and see all the good things God has allowed in my life.  Click here if you'd like to participate or just if you want to read what others are thankful for.  It can be very encouraging.

As I said in yesterday's post we took Lucy to be groomed on Monday after work (and they did an awesome job) but they also found out that the dew claw on her left back leg had grown around and was into her pad.  Thankfully, they called me right away and let me know and I was able to call the vet and get an appointment for her on Tuesday.  Turned out it really hadn't pierced her pad but it was getting close, so he took care of it for us.  He said it didn't phase her at all.  She never acted like she was having any trouble walking or anything, so we never realized there was a problem (you can bet I'll be watching this in the future).  While she was there he also expressed her anal glands and took care of that issue for now (this is something she has to have done every so often) and he gave her an antibiotic shot just to be sure all is okay.  I love her vet (he is the son of the vet we have used for years) and both of them are awesome because they take time to explain things and tell you how she is doing and seem to really care.  So all that said, I'm thankful for the groomer, the vet and that Lucy is doing well.

Later on Monday evening I was in the dining room and notices the beautiful sky out the back door.  I took a couple of pictures, but they never really do it justice.  But I'm so thankful that God displays his creation so beautifully and gives me opportunities to see it, even through my dirty patio door.  lol

I'm also very thankful for my grandson and getting to talk to him on video.  I know I say that on here pretty often, but he is becoming more and more chatty and it's just so fun.  I'm posting a couple of pictures here after his haircut on Saturday.  I just feel so very blessed to have him and that his mommy is so good about calling and sending pictures and keeping us up-to-date on his life.

So there are a few of the things I'm thankful for this week.  God is so good to me and I never want to fail to thank Him.  I hope you are having a great week and thank you for visiting me here in blogland.  Oh and that's another thing I am thankful for...all my blogging friends.

Have a blessed day!

1.            It may be a little shocking, but National Static Electricity Day is January 9!!  Do you often get shocked often when you touch metal?  Here are some things to avoid!
Actually, I do get shocked quite often in the winter time, but so far it hasn’t been too bad this year.

 2.  There are actually two "National" days worthy of mention! It is also National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.  Our men and women working in many areas of law enforcement put their lives on the line for us daily.  Do you know someone working in law enforcement who you can thank today? 
Actually, I work for our local police department and I am very thankful for each Police Officer and Communication’s Officer I work with.

 3.  At our house right now it is all about football.  Joe's Philadelphia Eagles barely won their game on Sunday to move forward in the playoffs and another chance to play in the Super Bowl this year.  Do you have a favorite team in the playoffs or does football make you yawn?  Is there a Super Bowl party in your future, no matter the teams playing?  I am not a football fan or do I know of any plans for a Super Bowl Party this year, although when hubby was a youth pastor there were many Super Bowl Parties that we threw or attended.

4.  Speaking of parties, there is always lots of food at parties I attend.  Tell us a weird food combination that you really enjoy (or have enjoyed).  It doesn't have to be party food.
I really can’t think of anything weird, at least not that I think is weird.

5.  Since we are on games and parties, what game have you spent the most hours playing?
Recently it would be Words With Friends which I can play on my phone.

6.  Tell us something random about your week so far.
Our little pup was groomed this week and she looks so cute.  I really need to stop waiting so long between groomings.



 Thanks for visiting.

This is a photo of one of the watercolor paintings my daughter did for me for Christmas.  Dory is one of my favorite Disney animated characters.  For now I may hang it in my office, but ultimately I think it will end up in my bathroom which I hope to do in the blue and yellow colors soon.

I think the skies are beautiful today.  After so many grey days lately, it's wonderful to have bright blue skies.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
