THANKFUL THURSDAY

LinkI have not done a Thankful Thursday post for awhile, so I'm glad I'm able to participate in it this week! This week's host for TT is Lori at Lori's Reflections, so go to her blog to read other's TT's, or you can join in on this great meme too!!

There are so many things I am thankful for, that this list is just going to vary! I will share with you what is on my heart.
  • Even in the uncertainty of our economy, I am thankful that we have peace in Jesus, our Jehovah Jireh!!
  • I am thankful for my husband and children who are so encouraging on my new weight loss journey!
  • I've mentioned this before, but I'm so thankful for my family's health. There are so many people who are ill, or have family members who's health is failing them. I will never take that for granted.
  • I'm thankful for the fellowship that I have with my friends. There are no other friendships that can compare to the ones you have in the Lord!
  • I'm thankful that the Lord has given me the desire to live healthier and to "want" to exercise!
  • I'm thankful I have a home that has lots of laughter in it!
  • I'm thankful that I can be goofy, silly, LOUD, have an obnoxious laugh, and people still want to be around me! I'm LOL'ing right now!
  • I'm thankful that even through "blogland", God uses it to bring people together to use it for His glory!

Amen Alicia, I am glad I do not have to worry about the economy, even though money is tight we are makin' it and saying NO is getting easier. I am glad you can be loud, it was funny because I wanted to have Emily's hearing checked and my MIL said that Filiipino's are just loud- so I told Emily "Girl, you better be a singer"...lol
I am excited for you and your weight loss, let me know how you are doing it will inspire me- I found myself eating yesterday out of frustration- this weather had been so bad it is hard to clean off your car at 5 am and go to the gym : (

I talked to my dad early this morning on his way to work and he said 'i'm so thankful that i'm able to be driving to work...and to have a job' - it's so true. even through these tough times I just keep reminding myself the the Lord will see us all through this if we remain faithful. he knows how this will all end...i draw peace from knowing that.
