WELCOME TO THANKFUL THURSDAY - JULY 29, 2010

*


HELLO SWEET PEAS
*
HOPE YOUR DAY IS GOING WELL.
*
MINE IS GOING FAST, I KNOW THAT.....
BECAUSE I WOKE UP AT 4:30 A.M., WITH
MY NECJ HURTING AGAIN, AND COULDN'T 
GET BACK TO SLEEP, SO I GOT UP FOR AWHILE 
AND DIDN'T GET BACK TO SLEEP TILL
 ABOUT 7:30, SO I SLEPT LATE!!
  HATE WHEN I HAVE TO DO THAT..., SO IT
 HASN'T BEEN A REAL PRODUCTIVE DAY
IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!!
*
AMAZING THAT WHEN I WENT TO BED I
WAS MARVELING THAT I FELT LIKE MY NECK
 AND ARM WAS 98% BACK TO NORMAL AND
THOUGHT I CAN PUT THAT AS ONE OF MY 
THANKFUL'S TOMORROW.  SO EVEN THO 
IT IS STILL ACTING UP
 I AM THANKFUL 
#1
THAT THE LORD KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING
EVEN WHEN I DON'T, AND EVEN THO IT IS A
BIT DISHEARTENING AT LEAST TYLENOL
AND COLD ICE COLLARS HELP GREATLY.
JUST TOOK MY ICE COLLAR OFF AND IT
FEELS BETTER ALREADY
*
#2
I AM THANKFUL TO GOD
FOR SUNSHINE, IT GIVES US VITAMIN D
 AND BOOSTS OUR MELATONIN LEVELS.
I JUST CAME IN FROM SITTING IN THE
SUN, FOR 10 MINS. FOLKS, THAT IS ABOUT
ALL THIS WOMAN CAN TAKE AT ONCE.
BUT I HAVE TO SAY THAT WHEN I GET
 KIND OF COLD SOAKED FROM THE A/C
THAT THE SUN JUST BECKONS TO ME
"COME AND SIT ASPELL"
AND WHEN I GIVE IN....... IT FEELS
 ABSOLUTELY GLORIOUS
FOR ABOUT THE FIRST 5 MINUTES!! LOL
IT JUST MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD
ALL OVER, SO WORTH THAT 10 MINUTES.
*
#3
I AM THANKFUL
FOR CONTENTMENT.  I REALLY AM SO
CONTENT, HAPPY AND BLESSED WITH
MY LIFE.  ALBEIT, TOOK ME SOME TIME 
TO GET ADJUSTED TO AN EMPTY NEST,
I AM LOVING THIS SEASON OF LIFE.
*
#4
I AM THANKFUL
FOR ANOTHER VISIT FROM THE ANIMAL
KINGDOM YESTERDAY.  THIS TIME IT WAS
 A CUTE LIL ARMADILLO OUTBACK DIGGING 
IN THE MULCH.  TRIED TO GET A PIC OF HIM
BUT SCARED HIM CAUSE I HAD TEMPORARY 
AMNESIA, FORGOT ALL ABOUT THE ZOOM!!
DUH!!!!
AND HE WAS SO ADORABLE.........
*
#5
I AM THANKFUL
FOR SWEET UNEXPECTED SURPRISES.
THE YOUNG COUPLE WE HAVE BEEN WORKING
WITH WAS HERE AGAIN LAST NIGHT, AND WHEN
THEY WERE LEAVING THEY GAVE US A PRECIOUS
THANK YOU CARD ALONG WITH A CARABBA'S
GIFT CARD.  THAT WAS SO THOUGHTFUL AND
VERY SPECIAL TO US, BECAUSE THEY ARE SUCH
A JOY TO WORK WITH AND SUCH AN
 INSPIRATION TO US.
*
#6
I AM THANKFUL  
FOR A NEW DEVOTIONAL BOOK I AM
READING.  IT WAS WRITTEN BY A YOUNG 
LADY WHO IS BETWEEN THE AGE OF
 30-33 YRS OLD. SHE USED TO BE IN A
 COLLEGE/CAREER GROUP WE USED TO HELP 
LEAD.  THIS LIL GAL HAS BEEN THRU SO 
MANY PHYSICAL TRIALS IN THE PAST
4-5 YEARS OR SO, AND I MEAN DEBILATATING
 STUFF.  SHE HAS WHAT THEY CALL AN
 ENVIRIONMENTAL ILLNESS, AND SHE IS
 ALLERGIC TO EVERYTHING IMAGINABLE,
BUT SHE HAS WRITTEN A TREMENDOUS BOOK,
AND IS WORKING ON A 2ND ONE AT PRESENT.
*
THIS LIL GIRL IS WISE BEYOND HER YEARS,
SHE IS A MISSIONARY KID, AS WELL.  GOD
IS REALLY USING HER IN SPITE OF HER
SICKNESS, IN FACT, HER DEVOTIONALS
ARE AN HONEST LOOK AT HOW SHE HAS 
FELT AND WHAT SHE HAS HAD TO DEAL
WITH, BUT WITHOUT A SHREAD OF "OH
POOR ME", AND WITH A VERY STRONG
LEANING ON HER LORD.  I HIGHLY
RECOMMEND IT, ESPECIALLY IF YOU
HAVE HEALTH PROBLEMS, BUT TRULY
IT IS GREAT FOR ANYONE.
*
IT IS CALLED "GRACE IN TIME OF NEED"
ENCOURAGEMENT FOR THOSE WHO ARE
SUFFERING
BY JOANNA HARRIS
YOU CAN PURCHASE IT ONLINE FOR $10
*
BELIEVE ME, YOU WANT REGRET IT!!
*
#7
I AM THANKFUL
FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET TO BETTER
KNOW A COUPLE FROM OUR CHURCH AS
WE WENT TO DINNER AT THEIR HOME LAST 
WEEKEND.  WE HAVE KNOWN THEM MOSTLY
FROM BEING IN SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
 WE HAVE TAUGHT.  SO IT WAS NEAT TO REALLY
GET A CHANCE TO TALK AT LENGTH AND
GREAT TO SEE HOW WELL GROUNDED
 THEY ARE IN GOD'S WORD.  THEY ARE REAL
SWEETIES, AND WE HAD A GREAT TIME
WITH THEM.

#8
I AM THANKFUL
FOR ANOTHER NEAT  AND FUN SURPRISE.
WE DISCOVERED THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY
WATCH EPISODES OF HGTV ON THE COMPUTER.
I LOVE HGTV BUT WE DON'T HAVE CABLE,
SO IT IS A BIG TREAT WHEN WE GO SOMEWHERE
THAT HAS CABLE AND GET TO WATCH IT.
THAT IS MOSTLY WHEN WE ARE ABLE 
TO GO TO THE BEACH FOR A WEEK,
WE LOVE WATCHING HGTV,ANIMAL
 PLANET, AND DISCOVER CHANEL  . 
 NOW THIS STAYCATION 
WILL DEFINTELY 
 FEEL MORE LIKE VACATION!!  LOL

#9
I AM THANKFUL
FOR THE COMPUTER.  NOW I HAVE TO SAY
I HAVEN'T ALWAYS FELT THAT WAY, UP UNTIL
 ABOUT THE LAST 10 YEARS I REALLY DIDN'T LIKE
 IT MUCH, I FOUND IT SCARY.  BEGAN TO LIKE IT
WHEN MY HUBBY HAD TO BE IN GERMANY OFF
AND ON, ONE SUMMER, BECAUSE I COULD EMAIL
HIM ANYTIME OF THE DAY I WANTED WHILE HE
WAS AT WORK, THEN ABOUT 5-6 YEARS AGO I 
STARTED TO LEARN TO MAKE GREETING CARDS 
TO SEND MY MOM WHO HAD TO BE IN A 
NURSING HOME UP IN N.W. FLORIDA., THEN
I LEARNED TO USE PHOTOSHOP TO MAKE
GRAPHICS FOR MY CARDS, STILL LEARNING,
THEN I FOUND I COULD GET THESE NEAT
 EMAILS FROM BETTER HOMES AND
 GARDENS AND RECIPES FROM KRAFT FOODS,
THEN OUR SWEET FRIEND BECKY FROM
OVER AT HOLIDAY IN THE SUN INTRODUCED
ME TO BLOGGING, (HUBBY HAD ALREADY
MENTIONED IT BUT I REALLY DIDN'T KNOW
WHAT IT WAS).  I STARTED READING BECKY'S 
BLOG AND SHE WAS TELLING ME ALL THE
 FUN SHE WAS HAVING AND ALL THE NEAT
LADIES SHE WAS MEETING, SO I DECIDED TO 
GIVE IT A TRY TOO.  WHAT AN AWESOME
AND SWEET SURPRISE AND BLESSING IT
HAS BEEN TO MY LIFE.
*
#10
I AM THANKFUL
WE ARE GOING OUT TONIGHT TO DO SOME
 FOOD SHOPPING AND TO DINNER.  IT HAS
 BEEN AWHILE, SO I AM REALLY LOOKING
 FORWARD TO IT.
*
#11
I AM THANKFUL
THAT WE CAN DO OUR WALKING EXERCISE
IN THE MALL WHERE IT IS NICE AND COOL.
IT IS JUST ANOTHER DIFFERENT WAY
TO GET HER DONE,  THAT MAKES IT FUN!!
HEY, I AM A POET AND DIDN'T KNOW IT!! LOL
*
#12
I AM THANKFUL
THAT HUBBY FOUND 3 MORE JOBS TO APPLY
FOR THAT ARE CLOSE TO HOME.
WHO KNOWS ONE OF THESE MIGHT BE HIS!!
YA NEVER KNOW!!

SEE YA ON SUNDAY............

LOVE, BLESSINGS, HUGS AND
LOADS OF SUMMER FUN TO YOU!!
NELLIE

#1. I pray the LORD will soon heal your neck. I have been having problems with my knees. I guess it has been all of the sitting this summer! After I get up and get going it gets okay.
#2. We get vitamin D from the sun too! I can't be out in it very long due to the meds I'm on.
#3. I can't thank our LORD enough for His comforter, the Holy Spirit. May He always be in our lives.
#4. Gee! I wish you could have gotten your picture. It's almost like you have to have your camera "around your neck" to have it when you need it! That happens to me when I want to get pictures!
#5. I guess you could say I got a nice "surprise" when one of the teachers left an e-mail on my school mail for us to meet next week at Chili's. We have a small group that meet every so often.
#6. Her book sounds like one our country needs to read right now!
#7. God really opens our opportunities to share with others. Eric (who is putting in my pool motor) and I talked for about 4 hours today. I have shared with him years ago about how the Bible was bringing about its prophecy. Back then, he would respond, "Yea, yea." (Not really taking it in as truth.) Today, he was the one to mention how something is happening in this country that's really scarry. I reminded him of our conversation years ago and it started making him share views he did not have back then. Pray for him to think what I shared about concerning the end times and the salvation of God to man.
#8. The History chanel is great too! I also like to watch the science chanel.
#9. I thank you for getting me started with blogging!
#10. Have a great dinner!!
#11. I'm going to really "feel" it when I go back to work and will be walking again throughout the day!!
#12. Prayers are being lifted up for you, Jim!
I love all of you very much,
Susie

I really enjoy reading your "thankful" list. It makes me stop and appreciate the small blessings. My post today was all about my lousy week, yet I'm still thankful for all the things that did go well. Have a nice weekend!

Goodness, that bike accident sounds really scary. So glad that you were not seriously hurt - hope your shoulder is ok and can be "tweaked" easily:) And will be praying for your hubbie's applications - you are right, no telling where those could lead! I do enjoy watching HGTV on the computer - no commercials! Yippee. And I have to confess I really like my computer, too (and my cell phone) both of which I was very critical of in the beginning...oops. Have a great day, sweetie!
