Thankful Thursday!

Today is when I join Sonya over at Truth 4 the Journey to give thanks to our wonderful Lord for all the blessings in our lives. If you would like to participate then please click on the link and list 5 things you are thankful for!

Thank you Lord for the forgiveness of sin. The sin in my life occurs daily and I am sickened by it. Lord, thank you that I can seek forgiveness at the foot of the cross, in your precious, worthy Son, Jesus Christ.
  • Thank you God that Jacob still continues to do well at school! He is still very happy to go and very keen to complete his homework! I am making time in the morning (most mornings) to read from the children's Bible they have and always pray over him for safety.
  • A husband who loves me and accepts me as I am. I can be poor company sometimes, especially if I have been up at night with Emma! I don't always look my best and yet Colin loves me regardless! I don't know how he does it!
  • I am thankful that God provides! Our car had been making strange noises and the local garage said it would probably be the brake pads and power steering. Colin and I were worried because this would cost money! Thankfully the man Colin drives a taxi for is also a mechanic and he fixed the problems on Tuesday free of charge!!! Thank you Lord!
  • Emma continues to remain well toilet trained. This was not hard at all and she responded very well to it. I am grateful that God gave me this gift. You may know that Emma has sleep problems at night (not any better!) so I dreaded toilet training. We started in July and she was using the toilet very quickly after that. Now she trots off and manages fine herself most times!
  • The older generation. So many of our elderly are forgotten or not given the importance they deserve. I think of my Gran in Glasgow and all the life experience she has had! I learn so much from her. I thank God for the elderly in our Church. They have a wealth of wisdom and experience to share with us if we would only communicate with them and be open to their advice.


  1. Great list, have a blessed Thursday!

  2. check out my blog later I am giving you something

  3. Collette this is such a beautiful list!!
    HUGS to you my friend!!

  4. This is a great list and I agree with your last one!!

  5. so wonderful that you have been blessed our lord is very good to those who have faith

  6. Great, great list!!! Wow about the car!! What a testament. Oh, what a battle with Emma at night. I feel for you. Not having proper sleep just messes the whole day up. I, too, struggled with sleeping at night when I was a child. It's just a real difficult thing to deal with. I was just thanking God this week for forgiveness of sin. I had a moment of weakness and hit my knees. I rejoiced in receiving forgiveness, once again! Our elderly are such a blessing. My job requires that I visit with our patients (elderly). I just love this. I spend hours with our people learning about their lives, their relationship with God and what changes they have seen in their lifetime. I find them fascinating, and a great source of wisdom!!

  7. Collette,

    Love all your Thursday blessings. I especially love your last sentiment, we too, need to be thankful to our older generation. They have endured things that we are only now beginning to face.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  8. Your list is wonderful! God does provide! I am so glad that Jacob is still enjoying school and that Emma is potty trained. Happy TT to you!

  9. Joying with you in all your blessing! I love your thankful heart and am glad that we can share it with you.

  10. Love your last one on the list. So many people lose out because they don't develop relationships with them. Thanks for the reminder!

  11. Beautiful, I especially needed to hear your last one about the elderly...we all need to remember this!

  12. What a great list of blessings......God rejoices when we are grateful!

    I have been trying to THANK YOU more than I say PLEASE too lately.

    glad I stopped by......

  13. I do not do well without enough sleep! I'm thankful that your husband understands that for you and that my hubby understood that when our kids were younger!

    I feel badly regarding the elderly of our world, especially in the US. They're the ones who suffered and fought for much of the things we take for granted today. They must shake their heads at our generation's sense of entitlement. Just the other day, my son was complaining because there wasn't anything in the house to drink other than milk and water. "I haven't had anything to drink besides milk and water for 2 weeks!" (Complete exaggeration!) I told him he was lucky because some people don't even have that. He responded, "Well, I'm not one of those people!" That stopped me in my tracks. I didn't bother to tell him that there was lemonade in the freezer that he could defrost and make! I let him "suffer"!

    I pray that you are doing well! I haven't been able to "visit" my bloggy friends as often since I've been back to work.

    Love and Hugs, Leslie
