Thankful Thursday!

Today is when I list 5 things I am thankful to God for over the last week or just generally. If you would like to participate then please pop over to Sonya's blog, Truth 4 the Journey.

  • I am thankful for some dry weather! The last few weeks seem to have been permanent heavy rain. This has meant very few walks for Emma and I. Yesterday was lovely, sunny and dry. Emma and I really enjoyed a dry walk round to visit friends.
  • God has answered my prayers about Jacob and his first few weeks at school. He is really interested in his school work. He is very keen to practice his new writing skills, letters, numbers, and words that he has learned at home. I am noticing how diligent he has become and am discovering this is one of his qualities.
  • My mum! There is no one like a mum for telling you like it is! I can always rely on a truthful answer to any of my questions. If I ask for advice then she isn't wishy washy with it. I love my mum dearly and am so so thankful to God for giving me such a great mum.
  • God's patience and love. I have not been very faithful this week. I haven't read my Bible as much as I would like to. I haven't prayed as much as I would like to. My attitude hasn't been as it should be. I don't like me very much this week!!! BUT we have a wonderful, loving Father in heaven who loves his children so much. I said to Colin last night how undeserving we are of this love. What does God see in us worth loving? Thank you for Jesus and his great sacrifice to allow us to be free from our sin.
  • Another Bible study beginning soon at Church. We will be studying 1 Peter this time and I can't wait!
So what are you thankful to our wonderful Lord for?


  1. Oh, I so know what you mean about moms telling the truth. My mom is totally that way too!!

    And yes, we're so undeserving, but He loves us anyway!! Wow!

  2. Love your #4!! God is so faithful even when we are not!

  3. I like your #4 also. A lot of things going on during the past 3 weeks has gotten me off track with my Bible reading, but it's great to know that God understands.

  4. I relate to #4 too! So thankful His grace covers it all!

  5. Collette,

    Praise God for all your beautiful blessings this week. Moms are great! Can't be here without them and it is awesome to remember them in our weekly blessings. So thankful that Jacob is getting things settled at school and that you were able to get out and enjoy the dry weather.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  6. Like everyone else, I am all over your number 4!! And so grateful to Him!!

  7. You certainly have alot to be thankful for! So glad Jacob is so into his school and learning! Children are amazing! And the dry weather for walking! We are having rain, and the grass and flowers are loving it!
    God bless you, and I thank God with you! His mercies are new everymorning..Great is his faithfulness.

  8. Amen to #4. I'm thankful for that the most.


It is always lovely to hear from my readers and I enjoy all you have to share!
