Thankful Thursday April 18, 2024, and photos of all things spring

Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have 
done wonderful things, things planned long ago.
Isaiah 25:1 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends

Welcome to Thankful Thursday

Hope this finds you well and happy,

and having a good week.  I am pretty

tired cause we sort of hit the ground

running this morning. We discovered

our hot water heater was leaking last

night just before we went to bed, so

hubby was already on the phone to

the plumbing company when I got

out of bed.  So our water heater is

in the garage and of course, there

were thing around it that needed

to be moved, so we commenced with

doing that, and by 9:30 we felt like

we'd run a marathon.  lol  But it is

all good.

On with my Thankfuls


Thankful for just happening on this video of 3

 lovely siblings, that are homeschooled, singing together.  They are singing

"Halleleujah" and they are  really good,

 I have to say.  Check them out here or type it in

for yourself  at


Thankful we rearranged our kitchen table and 

chairs and made it more like a banquette by

 putting a bench on the back wall and adding 

our saddle stools.  We both love how it looks

and love that it gives us a lil more room too.

Now just have to see how it works out

in real time.  

Note: Working out really well.....


Thankful we got 2 new books to read.

One is "We have issues" by Dr. Phil McGraw,

and the other is called "Defined" by the 

Kendrick brothers who did the movie, 

"Fireproof along with many others.

Gotta finish another book first tho......


Thankful for brownie bites that we get in

the bakery at Walmart or Publix.  They

are so good, and we make brownie sundaes

with them as well.  A nice Spring treat.


Thankful for how good it makes me feel

when I can sit out in the sunshine for about

10 mins or so.  Boosts my serotonin levels

I think it is...Which is also great if you

happen to be having depression issues.

If so, sit out a lil bit everyday.


Thankful for a good day at church and

a really great message from another one

of our younger Pastors.  Of Course,

we love and are thankful for all our 

Pastors and feel very blessed to have 

every one of them.


Thankful to have an opportunity to met

and be kind to a lady that sat next to us

in church this morning.  She lost her

husband in Feb. and it was her first time

coming back to church without him.

Very emotionally difficult day for her.


Thankful that we had an opportunity

to go to lunch with another couple we

have known for a long time, and another

lady that is just the sweetest.  Very 

uplifting and encouraging time.


Thankful that when I got home I got

a text from another friend who saw a

post from the lady we met at church

and she had written something nice

about me and hubby, so our friend

sent the post to us, as an encourage-

ment.  Turns out she and her husband

know the lady and her late husband.

So now that I have her last name

I was able to friend her on facebook,

and she neat how the

Lord works.......


Thankful that I pressed in and went to

church because I wasn't feeling great

because I was wide awake most of the

night because I feel asleep while we

were watching tv the night before, so

 could have very easily  watched from 

home, but I really wanted to go, and

 would have missed out on this blessing 

of meeting this sweet lady and having

 time to love on her a bit, and also

going to lunch with other friends.


Thankful hubby finally got his stitches out from 

his cyst removal today, and the biopsy report,

 said it was benign, and everything looks  good. 

 Didn't really expect a negative report, in fact, 

 forgot about it, but always good to hear benign!!


Thankful for 2 great school days with lil

darling this week.  Think she has been

feeling under the weather a bit lately,

and was taking antibiotics which can

just make you really tired, or at least

it does she must be over it cause 

she was like her self again!!  Sweet

as ever............

             Well, that's it for Cozy Place Today.

Hope you have a Delightful Weekend


Thanks for coming by.....

Love, Hugs and Mid April

  1. Hello Dear Nellie, I really relate to the hot water situation something similar happened to us a few weeks back we had to replace the plumbing as well as the water heater, the plumber showed the pipe that was about to break and told him we were about to have a flooded house.
    I always enjoy your Thankful Thursday posts and the photos are beautiful.
    I am so happy your little Darlin is better, I am sure she got a lot of special TLC along with prayers.
    I am always awed by God's timing in our lives, the meeting of the lady at church and you and your husband being there to minister to her was not a coincidence it was God ordained! God is so Awesome.!!!
    I read once that we should go outside barefoot and sit in the sun with our feet on the ground that it just soothed us somehow, I am going to try that one day soon.
    Thank you for visiting and for praying for my Mother, she was admitted back in the hospital last week but is now back home and needs much continued prayers.

  2. #1. Praise the LORD for His influence on children!
    #2. Sounds great!
    #3. Thank the LORD for great inspirations by others!
    #4. Delicious! Makes my mouth water, ha!
    #5. I love the sunshine, especially when it is cold outside!
    #6. His sermon was very inspirational to me too!
    #7. I pray the LORD's comfort upon her.
    #8. Praise the LORD for fellowship with fellow believers!
    #9. Praise the LORD for His leading in our lives and the lives of others!
    #10. I have been waking up about 3 a.m. with nervous feet!
    #11. Praise our LORD GOD for His blessings of healing!
    #12. Good for her! I'm thankful she is back to herself!
    Love you, Susan
