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

Click here to join in.

Things I am thankful for:

Hospital:  Sounds like a weird thing to be thankful for, but I'm glad we have a hospital within 20 minutes of us.  While we don't personally use this hospital, hubby's parents and my sister do.  So taking my sister to the doctor (inside the hospital) this morning was a very easy task.  Things are looking pretty good for her right now.

 On Friday evening my father-in-law was taken to the emergency room as his blood counts were very low and they wanted him to have some blood.  They then admitted him for some tests, etc and held him until Sunday.  They are suspecting his bone marrow has quit making blood cells.  Fortunately he is home and doing pretty well right now.  Prayers for him would be greatly appreciated and also his wife who is his caretaker.  Very hard on her and my hubby and his brother having to make decisions for their father and husband.

Anyway, we spent a lot of time here this weekend.  Everyone was very nice and I'm thankful for each one that worked with him.

Funny thing while we were there, I ran into a former co-worker that retired last year.  I saw on FB that he was in the hospital and expected to be there all weekend.  I left a note on FB that I was in the hospital right now visiting.  His wife commented and gave the room number and he was just down the hall 4 rooms, so I stopped in and visited for a few minutes.

Hubby also ran into a lady that he went to college with over 30 years ago.  Her mom was a patient.  They hadn't seen each other since school.  They enjoyed visiting together for a bit.

Small world isn't it?

Beautiful Evening Skies:  The other evening Lucy and I went out for a walk and the sky was just so beautiful.  Loved how it was so yellow.  Thank you God.  Skies are one of my most favorite things you created for us.  I just feel like you show off so much how creative you are with them.

Colton:  I am just so totally thankful for this little guy.  He's up bright and early and totally enjoying and devouring a donut!  Look at the laughing face!

So, what are you thankful for right now.



  1. Awww...your little Colton is adorable. He IS something you should be thankful for! He looks like he is a lot of fun!

    1. He truly is amazing. At this age to watch them with all they are learning is so fun.

  2. What a great list today! We have a hospital close to us, too, and it sure does make things easier when you need it. You need all the comfort you can get during the times you need a hospital.
    God is indeed the most creative painter!
    Your little Colton isn't so little any longer. He sure is getting big!
    Have a blessed weekend!

    1. Yes, he is growing so fast. He'll be 3 in just a couple weeks. I know your Colton is growing just as fast too. Aren't grandkids just the greatest!

  3. Lifting prayers for your father in law!!!... & yes, it is nice to have a hospital close by. We're about 25 minutes away from ours & sometimes that gives me anxiety - I want one closer :) LOL
    It is crazy when people from your past pop up again. The world does seem small in so many ways

  4. Colton is so cute and growing up so fast. What a great smile!
    Praying for your father in law and glad that he is home.


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
