Thankful Thursday

Psa 107:1 ¶ O give thanks unto the LORD, for [he is] good: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.

I want to say first and foremost I am thankful for The Lord nd His mercies in my life. I am so thankful that His mercy does endure forever. Without His mercy, I would be dead or most miserable. I know that I am not worthy of His mercy, but I am so thankful He saw fit to bring me out of the gutter of sin and set me free!

This may sound funny, but I am thankful for all your thankful hearts. Reading your thankfulness encourages me each time I read. I am so glad that my friend Michelle encouraged me to start blogging. I have been blessed beyond measure with blogs I have read.

I am thankful for my young female Min Pin who had her puppies a little early and is being a wonderful mommy. Although only 2 out of the 4 have survived, she is being a very patient mommy for her first litter. She is very loving and protective of her babes. I know she gets tired of being locked up with the pups so long, but when she goes out, she is always anxious to get back to her little ones. I am so thankful the 2 that survived are doing great. Fat butterballs, ready to start venturing out a little further than their kennel each day.

I am thankful for what God does with our mistakes that we make in life and can make something negative have a positive outcome if we give it to Him. I was talking to my 19 year old daughter this evening and we were saying how thankful we were taht God is able to take our mistakes and make something good come from them! Although we tend to make choices that God would rather we not make sometimes, if we are willing to humble ourselves and submit ourselves to Him He can pick up the pieces of our lives and make the outcome a blessing. I am just thankful that His mercy is there for us!!

I am thankful that this heatwave is almost over! I don't like hot humid weather, (why do I live in Kansas??) grins, and I am so looking forward to Fall!!

I am thankful that God is going to someday bring our wayward daughter back home. It has been a long time since she decided to take her life into her own hands and walk away from God, but I believe that as long as we hang on to our Faith, and don't give up on God, that she will turn back to Him, she will be back in His safety and with her family who so misses her!
