Thankful Thursday - Thanksgiving Edition

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

What am I most thankful for?
That the Creator of the universe would look upon sinful man and make a way for us to be reconciled to Him.
That He sent His own Son to be born of a virgin, live a sinless life, suffer the agony of death on a cross, and rise again on the third day so that all who repent and put their trust in him will be saved.
I'm thankful that He softened my hard heart and granted me repentance, and that He continues His good work in me, all for His own glory.
I'm thankful that though man may remember my sinful past I know that God looks on me and sees Christ's righteousness.

Romans 8
Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

Today Jojo reached for a toy and picked it up...

dropped it...

grabbed it again...

and got it to his mouth.

Just like a big boy.

All using his left hand.

Thankful Thursday - Lifelong Friends

I'm so thankful for wonderful Christians friends who have cried with me, encouraged me, and prayed with me over the last few weeks.

My oldest friend happened to be passing through my area and stopped by with her kids for a visit, just when I needed her most. We have been friends since we were both three years old. We've been through so much together and she has always been loyal, even when I bagged her as a science partner in 9th grade :-)

Elissa is a friend who always seems to know exactly what I need and what I need to hear. She is kind and compassionate and a wonderful listener. I am so blessed to have her in my life.

Thankful Thursday is being hosted by Laurie at Women Taking a Stand this month.
