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

Things I am thankful for this week, in no particular order.

**my church family...we had such a good service Sunday and just enjoyed being with everyone and then last nights Bible Study was really interesting and again just such a good time being together and discussing God's word.

**retirement...although I must say, everyone was right.  How in the world did I have time to go to work for 8 hours a day.  I have barely been home during the day, except last Thursday we stayed home and that was really wonderful.  I'm starting to get a few things accomplished and that feels really good.  I'm really not on a schedule but trying to get at least one thing done a day towards my goals.

**church...I've been working on the nursery at church.  We haven't had any littles in quite awhile, so the nursery has gone downhill a little.  I've got a dollhouse at home that I'm going to donate.  My dad made it and it's pretty indestructible and I plan to get some new furniture and a little doll family for it.  I'm excited to get it out of my house (since my girls are now 27 and 30, I think it's time) and maybe I'm stepping out in faith that we'll get some children again here.

**church...I'm also working on making myself a little office at church.  I'm trying to come in one day a week and help hubby with some clerical stuff and some other things I want to do.  This room really hasn't been used for anything since my daughter used it to do her home school stuff when she came to work with her dad.  So I'm cleaning it up and taking over her office.  lol

**freedom...It's nice to have free time that I can be with others.  Last week my mother-in-law had eye surgery and I was free to go with hubby to take her for the surgery and then the next day I took her to her 24 hour check-up.  I never could have done that before as I would have been at work.  It was so nice to have that extra time with her.  And then yesterday, we took my sister to an eye appointment as she was having some pain and redness in her eye and I'm thankful to have been able to go along for that.

**great nephew...He is home!!  And I got to go see him last Friday, which was totally awesome.  He is absolutely adorable and doing well.  Thanks for all your prayers. 

**Chronological Bible...still enjoying this so much.

I'm just so thankful for all of God's blessings, big and small.  So what are you thankful for this week?

I'm also thankful for you coming to visit and I hope you have a blessed day.

Currently I am...

Reading:  The Red Glove Collection by Karen Kingsbury.  I'm on Novella #4, Hannah's Hope.  Very good series and I definitely recommend it.

Listening to: Quiet at the moment, except the dog keeps barking on and off.  She's watching out the window and has to bark at everything that moves.

Loving: Being retired.

Thinking: I need to get up and get the laundry started and some other house work too.

Feeling: Blessed beyond all measure.

Celebrating:  Waking up to a new day!

Grateful for: My hubby...it's really strange for me to be home and he's at work. 

Weather:  19 degrees but feels like 9 according to my weather app.

Enjoying:  Having time to read and to make some scarves and hats.  Planning to start a navy blue set today.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day.

Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for:

***not having to go anywhere unless I choose to as it is so very cold out.

***already enjoying having more time to blog.

***a really good Bible Study last night on the last day.  One important thing was noted that we should not wait until then to make a decision for Christ, as we may not make it until the last day, we may die today!  Now is definitely the time to choose Jesus.

***started on Tuesday reading the Bible in a year chronologically.  This will be my second time doing this.

***YouVersion Bible App - it makes doing this reading plan so very easy.

***my husband being home with me today and tomorrow.  He's planning to try to be off on Thursday and Friday whenever possible so we can have more time together.

This is just a small list, but I am thankful for each of these and so much more.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day!
