Joanna (Squirt) Is 2

A little late on posting her birthday as it was the 31st of July but she is quickly growing up!! She has been such joy to this family since our older girls are all grown up and married. Joanna puts a smile on my face no matter how I feel!!

Thankful Thursday

First of all things I am Thankful For The Lord Jesus Christ and His Love, Grace and Mercy to me and my family.
I first of all want to apologize for being away from my blogspot for so long. Things have been so very busy lately, I haven't made the time to sit and type for just a few minutes. But I did want to get back in here and try again!

I want to say how thankful I am for Gods love. How He takes care of us from day to day. Since my last postings, lots of things have happened. Our van, which was on its last leg died. I was on my way home from work on a Friday evening and it gave out. Needless to say, it is history! God has so much mercy, He made sure we had the ability to replace it before He allowed it to give out on us. Just that very day He provided the financial means for us to purchase a used one. Of course we didn't know it was in His plan for it to give out on us that day. Long story short, He blessed us with a great van, for the price we had been praying for for several weeks! God is totally awesome, and NO payments!!

I am thankful for my family. For my husband for being so patient with me when I don't cook..... which seems to be often lately. (Always running here and there every day it seems)! He is always willing to help wherever he can, or wherever I ask him to. For my boys for being so helpful with their little sister (Squirt) who by the way is 2 now!!!

I am thankful for my job. Although I am really ready for a new job, I am thankful that this one is still ongoing, (as a contractor for the US Army it can be dropped at any time). God has kept this job open for me a lot longer than they expected it to be. He knows!!

I am thankful for out Pastor and His Wife! They always keep us in their prayers, (God knows we need them)! I am thankful that they continue to be the examples and leaders that we and our children need.

I am thankful for my future grandchildren!! Yeah.... we are so excited!! God is blessing and ading to our family!!

I am thankful for this blog community, I am so blessed by so many of your blogs I read. You will never know just how much I am blessed when I read your stories and blessings!! Keep us in your prayers, and God bless!!
