Thankful Thursday - December 21, 2017, Christmas 2017 #2

But the angel said to them,
 “Do not be afraid.
 I bring you good news that will
 cause great joy
 for all the people.
Today in the town of David
 a Savior has been born to you; 
he is the Messiah, the Lord. 
Luke 2: 10-11

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope all your preparations are

starting to slow down and you
are having some time to just
enjoy this lovely season.

I am feeling so much better,
so we got a lot done today, so
we are pretty much caught up!
So thankyou to all of you....
especially you Susan who have
 prayed for me during this time
 of being sick. Your prayers were
surely appreciated and it could
have been a whole lot worse.
Altho, I am not quite there
yet I am rejoicing and enjoy-
ing the preparations and the

great time.  We so enjoyed doing
it,  as it has been awhile since we
have done one....

Thankful all the ladies seemed
to love their snowmen we made

Thankful for what we consider a
 really huge answer to prayer. It is
 someone we and many others in the
church have been praying for....
for 12 years.....he came to church on
 Sunday.  I didn't get to see him, but 
hubby did (I was home sick) and 
hubby said so many were so happy
 to see him.  Ditto many times over
for us!

Thankful for being able to rest so
 much because my sweet hubby
 has done so so much to help.
Thankful for the extra special
 blessing he has been during 
this time of my being sick.

Thankful that Dee, Jerry and
Rosie made it safe and sound
to Jerry's parents house.  She
has what I have now and is 
about to lose her voice.  
Prayers they will
be traveling here to us on Sat.
so hope she will get to feeling
better so she can enjoy her
time there and here.

Thankful to be feeling better
even tho I am not totally over
it yet,  do have my voice back,
raspy tho it

Thankful that hubby and I
got to go out and do the rest
of our shopping and to dinner

see the nurse at CVS.

  1. The LORD is so good. He tells us to ask in His Name and we shall receive, especially it if is a prayer for another loved one, family and friend alike!

    Maybe the "red craziness" came from being overheated from the bad cold, so glad you are feeling much better!
    #1. Another answered prayer! I so glad you had a great time!
    #2. That's great! It's so nice to have something to take home to remember the occasion!
    #3. Praise the LORD! I pray he continues.
    #4. Thank the LORD for a loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother.
    #5. I am praying for sweet Dee.
    #6. Be careful not to "overdo" so you don't get a relapse.
    #7. Time together is always great, but even greater when you can go out and eat!
    #8 & 9. That is how thankful I am to you for shopping for me! Bless you!
    #10. That's how I was with Heartland. It started over but went further in the episodes than the last time. Now they have started over again, so I'm watching something else now.
    #11. This is definitely the time for soup. Cold weather makes soup taster better, ha!
    #12. How wonderful. I received a Christmas card from Lillian's daughter in Triangle, VA.
    I sent her a Christmas card. (I didn't have her address until she sent her card,)
    Love you all, Susan

  2. Merry Christmas!
    Twelve years of praying for a lost soul and then he showed up. This gives me hope to continue on praying. God will answer.
    Happy New Year!

  3. Hello Christine,
    Hope that you had a wonderful Christmas.....
    and glad our answer to pray made you more hopeful...

    All I can say is never give up praying.....I had a lot of family members who didn't
    know the Lord until not long before they passed......but they did pass into Heaven, and we
    prayed for over 20 years for most of them...........but God is faithful....he will do whateverit takes to bring them to himself and he will send others to talk to them as well, and many times we don't know it until after they are gone.

    Hope your 2018 is a great one.....
    Blessings, Nellie

  4. Morning Susan,
    Thanks for coming by and for your comments, and again you are welcome for the shopping help.

    Praying for a great 2018 for all of us.......
    Love and Blessings,


Special thanks to all who take the time to leave comments..........They are very encouraging and very appreciated. I enjoy every one of them so much!!
May the Lord Bless You!!
