Thankful Thursday


Thank you to Laurie at Women Taking a Stand for hosting Thankful Thursday this month.

I am so thankful for my wonderful sisters in Christ.
I've been on bed rest for over ten weeks now and the ladies from church have taken such good care of me.

Many meals have been prepared for us. I've received countless cards, emails and phone calls.



Bags of books have helped pass the time.

Yesterday a dear friend dropped off a fresh loaf of bread:


We've been given bags of hand-me-downs and diapers to help prepare for the baby.


I am so blessed to belong to such a wonderful church family.

  4. Thanks be to God! You have a wonderful church family. I am sure we can all reflect on a time when ours ministered to us. An even greater blessing is to be able to help others in their need. I hope you are feeling stronger now and are more independent. God bless.

  7. Church families are so important. I can never understand why so many young people think they no longer need church. People need each other! Have a wonderful week!

Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
