Welcome to Thankful Thursday - August 28, 2014


Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens,
 your faithfulness to the skies.
 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
 your justice like the great deep.
Psalm 36:5 and 6



Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope your day and your week has
 been a good one thus far..................

Mine has been a good week, can hardly believe it
is Thursday already.  Looking forward to a nice
3 day weekend with my sweet hubby.  No plans
yet, we are just flying by the seat of our pants
here!  lol  Think Hubby likes these days when
he can just relax and do what he wants when
he wants or do nothing at all if he wants.


Hoping we might get a few more steps done
on our mailbox area this weekend, but we
will see............lol

Not much going on here today,  just been
brainstorming about a few things and doing
the routine household things.  You have a
good evening and I am gonna get on with
my list here............


I am thankful

#1
that we finally got our new mail box post painted
 on Saturday,  so 1 step down.  We are going to
 redo the whole area out by our existing mailbox,
but because of the heat it will be in steps......lol


#2
that Scott and Megan's new home is perfect for
 them, and absolutely beautiful, as well as the
 neighborhood. They moved in on Thursday around 
dinner time, and we went over Sat. about the same
 time and you would think they had been in the house 
a month already.This house had a lot of perks as well, 
 so the Lord has really blessed them.



Thought I would just add some pretty pics that remind us of summer,
since we are about to enter Sept. course, I know summer doesn't
 end till Sept. 22nd, but for some reason in my mind it ends after
 Labor day. Maybe that is because I am a southern girl and southern
girls are taught not to wear white shoes after labor day!  lol
Anyone relate to that??



#3
that on Sunday we went to Yomii, and that we saw 
a sweet gal that took care of my MIL when she was
 in a Nursing Home about 13yrs. ago, and we had not
 seen her once before that.
She was an aide then, but she has gotten her Nursing
degree now,  and has changed a lot, for the good, and
 got remarried to a seemingly really nice fellow. It was
such a sweet surprise to see her and meet her new
 hubby.  We always liked her and her humor, she was
so funny, and always appreciated what good care she
gave to my MIL..........as well, as how she made her
laugh with her antics.


#4
that one of my friends that has been sick a long time
was back at church yesterday.  Am so hoping this
is a turning point for her.





#5
that we were actually able to sit outside for awhile
on Monday night, very unusual for us here in Florida,
as it has been so hot. It only went to 90 today and
It was breezy with beautiful skies, and we watched
the squirrels jumping in the trees and eating grass
on the ground.  Had a hawk fly over us,  and some
dragon flies, and the sounds of Katydids, making their
 katydid noises, which always bring back memories 
of childhood for us, and we even got a very light
sprinkling from a cloud that didn't even look like
a rain cloud, those teeny lil drops felt so cool.....
  It was so much fun!
Like a calgon take me away extended moment!!  lol
For a few moments in felt like Fall...........
Can hardly wait for some Fall weather to come,
course, we probably have another month and a half,
 but maybe we will have a few more evenings like
 tonight before,  I sure hope so.


#6
for a sweet surprise email from hubby on Monday.
He is practicing what he is teaching......and I
am loving it........





#7
That Scott and Megan are such great parents.
Just Blesses this parents heart.........



#8
that hubbies prescription finally came in the mail.
We have had to call the Drs. office 4 times and
were beginning to wonder if we were gonna have
to call again............so very happy about that.


#9
for a yummy pot of chicken and dumplings on
Tuesday night for dinner.  One of my fav dinners.





#10
for Billy Graham and his family.  His daughter 
Anne Graham Lotz has asked for people to pray
and fast for Israel on Sept. 1, which is next
 Monday.  If you would like to participate
just see my blog post from yesterday.
Click here.


#11
that I got to talk with Dee for 3 days in a row,
which is good cause they are gonna take a lil
getaway trip until next Monday evening.
Also,  that she has been getting quit a few leads
on her real estate job, no buyers yet, but you
have to get those leads first, and it always
takes some time.


#12
that we can get our best Vit D and a tan from
the sun.......I would much rather do that than
take the capsules.  Also it boost my melatonin
levels and makes me feel better emotionallly.








Well, here's to another
 week of blessings,


Glad you decided to come by.......
Hope you will let me know you 
were here by your comments.


Have a Hap Hap Happy Friday
 and Weekend
with those you love the most,


Love,  Hugs
and last week of August
Blessings

Hi Nellie! I really enjoyed your post and it always leaves me energized when I realize that there are So Many Reasons to be THANKFUL TO GOD and we don't even recall the half of it. What blessings He sends us. Often they can disguised amid our pain and suffering, but more often than not, they are right there, out in the open for everyone to see, like that wonderful sky and the drops of refreshing rain that fell.
I thank you once again, for reminding Me to also ALWAYS BE THANKFUL. :))

#1. I need to do MUCH weeding in my bay window area! It's just been so hot outside!
#2. I can hardly wait to see it!
#3. I'm so thankful for what they all did for mom. I'm so happy for her.
#4. The LORD's blessings on her.
#5. I love to be out when it's cloudy and you feel the cool breeze just before it rains!
#6. Oh, the joys in life!
#7. Scott has a great momma and dad who taught him!
#8. I'm anxious to see if my prescription from Wal-Mart next month will be cheaper than the independent R/X I have been buying it from! In one month they tripled my price with one prescription!
#9. I just made Stroganough with meatballs and pasta.
#10. What a blessing Billy Graham has been and his family too!
#11. Are they taking Rosie with them?
#12. I wonder if you can get the Vitamin D with wearing long sleeves? I have so many brown spots that seem to increase when I'm in the sun for any time.

I love your bird pictures!
Love you all, Susan

Hi Nellie,

Beautiful photos of the sky and clouds. I sure hope your sick friend is feeling better now. Enjoy the weekend my friend.

Carol said...

Lovely photos, Nellie! It's always such a wonderful feeling to write down those things that we are thankful or grateful for -- writing them just seems to add more meaning. I have Gratitude Journals that I write in every night. I do believe it makes me look for the goodness around me when I know I will be making my list from the day's experiences.
