Hi Sweetie!
I love your thankful heart...it's so infectious! I'm thankful that God is in, over, under, and through and through everything that comes into His children's lives, and that He holds it all in His loving hands!

Have a wonderful weekend gal!
Love ya lots,
Becky

Always Thankful for my Creator Loving me!
#1. I wonder sometimes if I'm "going backwards" in the things I enjoy doing. It seems to be things I loved to do as a child. Maybe that's why the LORD had me be a kindergarten teacher. I can do these things of enjoyment under the guise of being a teacher, ha!
#2. Oh, how I have been praying for Scott and his new job! The LORD has His timing.
#3. Is your heart singing for what I think it is?!?!
#4. Again prayers have been being lifted daily for Jim. This is when my patience is tried (should I say!) This is when I pray God's timing is "a thousand years as a day" rather than the other way around when waiting for His answers.
#5. It is so joyful to see God's blessings on us. I sometimes think it should always be immediate. God is working on my patience to wait. God's Word says, "Be still and know that I Am God."
#6. I remember mom and dad's Joy when Jim would come home for visits when he was in the Air Force. I was always joyful too, but as a kid I "knew" he would return (is that the result the LORD says concerning having the faith of a child.)
#7. Yeah, Bonnie! I ask her if she had seen Sam at Yosemite!
#8. Forgive me for the 90 minute time out I just took! What a great site! It always amazes me the revelations God continues to give those who continue to seek Him.
#9. God's answers to prayers and guidance happening right before our eyes!
#10. Isn't that the greatest thing about getting older; others preparing our food for us! I don't know why it seems to just taste better than when I fix it myself!
#11. I'm waiting for my bananas to get ripe before I freeze them so I can make myself some smoothies!
#12. Rosie, Joey, Molly. Animals do bring joy to our lives. I should be overbounding with joy...Jerry, Sam, Sarah, Cuddles, Gracie, Max and Dolly! Wow, lol!
I love you all,
Susie
