Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey


Five things I'm thankful for this week:

1. My boy's wisdom tooth extraction went well and his recovery has been smooth with minimal pain and swelling.

2. Dental insurance and the means to cover the copay.

3. My kids - our area has seen two children die in the last two days, a 17-year-old in a car accident and a 5-year-old in a backyard pool. Life is fleeting.

4. The anticipation of our upcoming family vacation.

5. The reminder that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)

What are you thankful for?

1. An amazing week of VBS at my church;
2. The privilege of praying for students who are headed to Romania in seven days;
3. God's incredible grace;
4. My husband and children; and
5. The first sip of coffee every morning!

Thanks for the inspiration!

I love gratitude lists! My daughter is having her wisdom teeth extracted at the end of the month - I also am grateful for insurance and, in this case, our flex account!

Thank you for the verse. I appreciated re-reading it through a few times.

So glad to see you linked up! Wow - that is so sad about the loss of life. Not to compare it to my a/c story - but really when we see loss is when we most appreciate what we have.

Glad the dental stuff when well.

Great list!
