Thankful Thursday!

Today is when I join Sonya at Truth 4 the Journey to give thanks to God. We list 5 things we are thankful to God for over the last week or so. If you would like to join in then please click on the link above!
  • A God who provides and knows our circumstances! Last Friday I took Emma shopping for new shoes. I really didn't want to pay the prices in Clarks, £30 upwards, so we tried several cheaper shops but nothing was suitable. In the town centre we discovered a lovely shoe shop that looked v expensive but had a sale rack. The lady was very sweet and Emma had her feet measured and needed new shoes! There were a suitable pair on the sale rack which fitted Emma perfectly. And the price? My ultimate bargain of the year so far! Reduced from £39.99 to £10!!!!!!!! How cool was that! Colin was pleased and they are gorgeous, leather, sturdy and she loves them!

  • I am thankful for a beautiful crisp Autumn morning. On the way to school Jacob and I spoke about what season it now is and how God changes the seasons. I can't believe it is the 1st October already and Autumn!

  • Last night Colin and I had a lovely visit from two of our Church Elders. The Elders like to visit Church members every now and then. It was really encouraging for both of us and we really appreciate the time taken over these visits. I am thankful to God for encouraging words, great Bible teachers at Church and a loving, caring Church family.

  • The power of prayer. At our toddlers group on Monday a lovely friend who helps was talking about how she gets frustrated because she can't help physically as much as she would like with our children at Church. She said that she always prays for them though! I was so touched by this because it is even more important that people are praying for our children than whether or not they can run around after them!

  • Finally I would like to thank God for sending Jesus. I thank Him for the promise that one day Jesus will return to this earth.
12"Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. 13I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
Revelation 22:12-13 NIV

17For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;
he will lead them to springs of living water.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
Revelation 7:17 NIV.
