WELCOME TO THANKFUL THURSDAY - AUGUST 4, 2010


*
WELCOME TO
 THANKFUL THURSDAY 
SWEET FRIENDS!!
*
TRUST YOUR WEEK HAS BEEN
 A GOOD ONE..........AT LEAST
 I HOPE MOST OF IT HAS!!
*
MY WEEK HAS BEEN GOOD ESPECIALLY
SINCE MONDAY AFTERNOON.  I HAVE
BEEN FEELING GREAT THE LAST FEW
 DAYS.....WENT BACK TO THE  DR. FOR
ANOTHER ADJUSTMENT AND WILL GO
AGAIN ON FRIDAY. 
SO THIS WOULD BE MY 
#1
I AM  SO THANKFUL
TO BE FEELING SO MUCH BETTER.


 STILL HAVING SOME
TROUBLE SLEEPING THO CAUSE OF NECK
PRESSURE, BUT IT SHOULD GO AWAY 
SOON HOPEFULLY.  WAS TELLING HUBBY
I WOULD BE FEELING NEAR PERFECT IF
 I  JUST DIDN'T HAVE TO SLEEP.  LOL
NOTHING MAKES YOU APPRECIATE
YOUR HEALTH AND FITNESS THAN GOING 
THRU A BOUT OF FEELING CRUMMY!!
*
#2
I AM THANKFUL
 FOR THOSE THAT ARE IN THE MEDICAL
FIELD WHO CAN HELP US IN TIME OF NEED.
I AM ESPECIALLY THANKFUL FOR MY
CHIROPRACTER  AND HIS LOVELY STAFF.
THEY ARE ALL JUST WONDERFUL.
*
#3
I AM THANKFUL TO THE LORD
AGAIN THIS WEEK FOR THE DEVOTIONAL
I AM READING "GRACE IN TIME OF NEED",
BECAUSE I AM ABLE TO READ IT DURING
THE NIGHT WHEN I CAN'T SLEEP, AND I AM
SOOOOO RELATING TO IT AND IT HAS
 BEEN A REAL ENCOURAGEMENT TO ME.
(IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT IT
CLICK HERE.  THEN, SCROLL DOWN TO
THANKFUL #6.
AM THINKING MAYBE THAT WAS THE 
LORD'S PURPOSE FOR ME TO EXPERIENCE
HER BOOK FROM A POINT OF AFFLICTION,
SO I COULD GIVE HER MY PERSPECTIVE
PERSONALLY.
*
#4
I AM THANKFUL
THAT OVER THE LAST YEAR OUR CHURCH
COLLECTIVELY RAISED $300,000.00 TO PAY
OFF OUR MORTGAGE.  WHAT A BLESSING
THAT IS, ESPECIALLY WITH THE WAY THE
ECONOMY IS RIGHT NOW.  WE WILL BE
HAVING A MORTGAGE BURNING PARTY
AT THE END OF THE MONTH.
PRAISING THE LORD FOR HIS PROVISION.
*


#5
I AM THANKFUL
FOR A  CHRISTIAN YOUNG MAN THAT DID
 PLAY FOOTBALL FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF 
FLORIDA, HIS NAME IS TIM TEBOW, AND
HE HAS HAD AN AWESOME TESTIMONY
FOR GOD ALL THESE YEARS OF PLAYING.
HE HAS RECENTLY BEEN DRAFTED INTO
THE  NFL WITH THE DENVER BRONCO'S.
HE WILL NEED A LOT OF OF PRAYER AS
THE ENEMY IS SURELY NOT HAPPY WITH 
THE IMPACT HE HAS MADE.  
*
IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHO HE IS....
YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD ABOUT HE AND 
HIS MOM THAT DID A COMMERCIAL FOR THE
SUPERBOWL THIS YEAR, THAT WAS HOSTED
BY FOCUS ON THE FAMILY, AND IT CAUSED
A HUGE STIR OVER NOTHING!!
*
#6
I AM THANKFUL
THAT THIS SUNDAY, AN ORLANDO SENTINEL
 COLUMNIST DEFENDED THIS WONDERFUL
YOUNG MAN.  HE DEFENDED HIM BECAUSE 
THERE ARE SO MANY THAT CRITICIZE AND
ACTUALLY HAVE FACEBOOK PAGES THAT
SAY "WE HATE TIM TEBOW".
  UNBELIEVEABLE!!
THIS IS WHAT GEORGE DIAZ HAD TO SAY,
"THESE ARE THE SINS OF TIM TEBOW:  HE
IS A NICE GUY, HE IS NICE TO STRANGERS, 
HE'S NEVER BEEN ARRESTED, HIS BODY IS
 NOT A CANVAS OF UNSIGHTLY TATTOOS,
HE SOMETIMES USES THE WORD "FREAK"
AS A EUPHEMISM FOR THE F-BOMB
 BECAUSE HE DOESN'T CURSE, AND HE 
IS ONE OF THE GREATEST FOOTBALL
PLAYERS IN FOOTBALL HISTORY.
HOW ANYONE CAN STAND HIM IS
 ANYBODY'S GUESS??"
*
LATER HE SAID, " I HOPE HE CONTINUES
TO BE AUTHENTIC IN HIS WHOLESOME 
APPROACH TO FOOTBALL, FAMILY AND
FAITH.  HE HAS PROVEN THAT HE 
PRACTICES WHAT HE PREACHES.
*
I BRING THAT UP BECAUSE IT IS JUST
SO REFRESHING  TO SEE 
ANYONE WHO LOVES THE LORD AND
WALKS THE WALK MUCH LESS SUCH
A YOUNG PERSON.  I FIND THAT VERY
EXCITING!!
*
I WILL GET OFF MY SOAPBOX NOW!!  LOL
*
#7
I AM THANKFUL
THAT WE GOT TO SEE OUR DAUGHTER ON
SAT. AND THEN UNEXPECTEDLY AGAIN
 LAST NIGHT.  (AND ROSIE)
THAT ALWAYS BRIGHTENS MY DAY TO
SEE MY CHILDREN, AND GRAND DOGS!!
*
#8
I AM THANKFUL
THAT OUR SON WAS ABLE TO FIND OUT 
THAT THE JOB HE HAS INTERVIEWED FOR,
WEEKS BACK,HAS NOT FILLED THE POSITION
 YET, AND THAT THE CEO FELT THE INTERVIEW
  WENT VERY WELL.  SO THAT MEANS IT IS STILL
A POSSIBILITY.
*
#9
I AM THANKFUL
THAT OUR SON WILL GET TO TAKES A WEEK
 OF VACATION IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS, AS 
HE WILL SOON BE WITH THIS CO. ONE YEAR!!
AND BOY, DOES HE NEED A VACATION!!
*
I AM HOPING THE LORD IS JUST DELAYING
THE NEW JOB, SO THAT HE COULD GET HIS
PAID VACATION SINCE HE HAS WORKED 
SOOO HARD FOR THIS COMPANY!!
*



#10
I AM THANKFUL 
FOR THE BIBLE, GOD'S WORD TO US, AND
HOW WHEN WE DO WHAT IT SAYS, IT
TEACHES US NEW THINGS ABOUT GOD
AND CHANGES OUR LIVES, ALWAYS
FOR THE GOOD.
*
#11
I AM THANKFUL
THAT THEY WERE ABLE TO STOP THE
LEAKING OF THE NEWEST OIL LEAK,
AND THAT THE REPORTS ARE THAT 75%
OF THE OIL IS GONE!!
*
I TRULY BELIEVE THAT IS BECAUSE
OF THE PRAYERS AND GOD'S GREAT
MERCY TO US ALL.
*
#12
I AM THANKFUL
FOR THE  MANY PEOPLE WHO LOVE THIS 
GREAT COUNTRY AND THAT ARE DOING 
EVERYTHING THEY KNOW TO DO TO TURN
THINGS AROUND.  MAY GOD CONTINUE
 TO
 BLESS THE U.S.A.!!!
*
WELL, SWEETIES
IT IS TIME TO END............
*
HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY
AND A SPLENDID WEEKEND ENJOYING
YOUR FAMILY AND/OR FRIENDS AND PETS.
*
THE SWEETEST OF BLESSINGS
TO YOU ALL.
NELLIE

Oh Nellie,
Your thankful heart is always an inspiration!
I am so thankful for GOD's patience with me and for His personal reminders that He cares.
I join you also in thanking GOD for the unbelievable blessing of paying off the church's mortgage in these hard economic times...truly HIS grace poured out on us.

Come visit me on my new blog site:

Blessings and ((HUGS))!

Checking in with you dear Nellie...I am glad you are feeling better...as I well know it is no fun to not be feeling well. I still get the achy knees and hips and what not, but I just keep plugging away trying to bring cheer to my patients whenever I can. I have had a few recently say thank you for my help in getting them prepared to return home after rehab. That is always a good feeling!

Wishing you a weekend of good feelings!

Linnea

Hi Nellie,

I am so glad you are feeling better and couldn't agree more about Tim Tebow. Fingers crossed for Scott and that new job. It would be nice if he could get in that vacation first, wouldn't it. When is Becky opening her Etsy Shop??

Have a happy weekend. Jim will be home on Saturday evening, that will be great!

Hugs to you...B

Hi Nellie, Loved your list. You have such an amazing grateful heart and I know it brings joy to the Father. Glad you're feeling a bit better but take it easy. Heard our dear Beck was going to visit with you so enjoy...o.k., wish I was there.
Have a blessed weekend.
love, Noreen

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY NELLIE, MY PRECIOUS FRIEND,
I AM SORRY YOU ARE STILL HAVING SOME PROBLEMS WITH YOUR NECK...DOES IT JUST FEEL LIKE IT IS GOING TO BLOW UP SOMETIMES FROM THE PRESSURE...THAT IS HOW MINE FEELS. I THANK YOU FOR PRAYING FOR MY SEVERE INSOMNIA. IT IS SOME BETTER. I DID A POST ON THE LITTLE ORANGE HOUSE WHERE ON WEDNESDAY MR. SIMPLY AND I DROVE ONE HOUR TO MEET AN AWESOME BLOGGER IN PERSON TRAVELING THROUGH OKLAHOMA. BY THE TIME WE GOT HOME I SLEPT ALMOST 24 HOURS STRAIGHT...THAT IS A BIGGIE FOR ME.
I THINK ONCE YOUR SON IS ON VACATION, HE IS GOING TO SEE THE CLOUDS PART AND HEAVEN COME DOWN. YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT JOINING THIS BLISSFULL ATC SWAP OR CINDY ADKINS MONTHLY CREATIVE SPIRIT...IT IS ON THE 8TH OF EVERY MONTH AND IT CAN BE A PHOTOGRAPH. A RECIPE, SEWING...ANYTHING CREATIVE THAT YOU WANT TO SHARE....
http://cindyadkinswhimsicalmusings.blogspot.com
YOU CAN GO AND READ ABOUT IT.
I LOVE READING YOUR THANKFUL THURSDAY...WE TAKE THE SIMPLEST THINGS FOR GRANTED.
WE HAD A WOMAN DOWN THE STREET TAKE AN OVERDOSE LAST NIGHT AND 2 NIGHTS BEFORE A LADY COMMITTED SUICIDE...the devil is certainly out seeking whom he wants to devour...he comes to steal, kill, and destroy, and YET EVERYONE GETS MAD AT OUR PRECIOUS JESUS.
YOU ARE SOOOOOOO SPECIAL NELLIE AND I LOVE FOR YOU TO COME VISIT ME.
HAVE A BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND.
CONGRATULATIONS FOR YOUR CHURCH TO BE DEBT FREE...PRAISE GOD. THERE ARE SO MANY CHURCHES THAT HAVE SCHOOLS THAT ARE CLOSING THEIR SCHOOLS BECAUSE NOT EVERYONE CAN PAY FOR THE TUITION ANY MORE.
I WAS GOING TO ASK WHAT THE NAME OF THAT YELLOW AND WHITE FLOWER IS....THEY ARE SO PERFECT I THOUGHT THEY WERE MADE OUT OF FELT.
HUGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE

That is such a lovely thing to write! I love it! I'm thankful everyday for everything God has brought into my life. I hear you have neck problems. Me too! These past few weeks have been annoying. Supposedly I'm too stressed! But I don't have any stress! I guess that's the popular answer to everything not explainable. Hope you're doing well! Thanks for the lovely read!!! :)

It is always a pleasure to read your gratitude list.

Sorry, I'm so late! I got so busy transferring my pictures over to my computer, I didn't get online for a few days!
#1. I'm so thankful you are doing better! It really can be debilitating when you feel such pain.
#2. Amen! I went for my physical last Thursday. I told Dr. Quinn I hoped he never retired!
#3. God's WORD is so Miraculous! It's astonishing how what I'm reading is such a Testimony of His WORD to me. Joshua, Daily Bread, and the 140 days of prayer just blend right into one another with His WORD for me!
#4. I shared with Pastor Keith that it would be nice if the people could see a total somewhere that is being donated to the transformation project!
#5. I pray for all those who have a testimony for Christ, especially in public places.
#6. That is so rare in these days. The "political correctness" of things don't include comments from Christians.
#7. I remember when mom and dad were always so happy to see you and Jim when you would come to visit when we lived in the Keys. We were so far apart. I'm glad Dee and Scott live so close!
#8 & #9. My prayers still are for Scott to find the job he would enjoy.
#10. I have so enjoyed my Bible study in the mornings. I don't know how I'm going to do it now as I start back to school. I have been spending 1 1/2 to 2 hours in the morning during the summer. Now, I'll have to split it and do some in the morning and most in the afternoon!
#11. The LORD is listening to our prayers. I'm praying for the microbs to not get their fill of eating the dispersement!
#12. I'm praying God's people keep praying so God's angelic power will use our prayers in assisting the change that needs to take place. You can best believe there is one big Spiritual battle going on right now that if unsaved man were to see it, it would cause their hearts to fail (no matter how young they are!)

I am so glad we belong to our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Father God!

I love you all very much,
Susie
