Thankful Thursday!

I can't believe it is Thursday again already! Join me with Sonya over at Truth 4 the Journey for another Thankful Thursday. This is when we list 5 things we are thankful to God for.

  • On Monday, Jacob had his first day at Primary school. We have all been a bit anxious about this, but the big day had finally arrived. He looked very smart in his uniform.

We left his wee sister with her Dad and headed down for a 9.15am start. I asked him, "are you nervous?" and he said "my bones are wobbly!".

He was absolutely fine when I left him in the classroom as most of the kids are friends from nursery. Colin collected him at 12noon and he was quite happy and had a great time!

I am so thankful to God that so far the week has gone well. He has enjoyed each day and thank you Lord for protecting him.

  • Our Church toddlers group began this week again! We had a good turnout considering it was our first Monday back together. We made a lovely banner poster of all the children's hand prints and a sign that says, " We are Townhead Toddlers group and God love us!".
  • Answered prayers - a few weeks ago we had a meeting about our Sunday school devoted to praying for the way forward for this. On Monday evening we had an organisational meeting. Thank you Lord for providing a solid team of teachers, new teachers who are committed to helping, and enthusiasm for our new ideas!
  • My tumble dryer!!! The rain has been persistent all week here and yesterday was my washing day. Thank you God for tools which help me run the household. I am so fortunate to be able to dry clothes in this way!
  • Encouraging words from fellow believers. It is so good to encourage each other isn't it?
Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10:25 NIV.
