Thankful Thursday!

Today I join Sonya at Truth 4 the Journey for Thankful Thursday. I need to list 5 things I am thankful to God for this week.

  • Jacob was back at school yesterday and feeling much better. I am praying that the illness is over for now in our family!
  • My mum! I had a bad morning a few days ago when Jacob was ill. He was very grumpy and Emma was annoying him so they just kept fighting. I phoned my mum for some common sense advice. Mums always tell it like it is and don't hold back with their advice and I love her for this!
  • Friends! I couldn't go to our Church Toddlers Group on Monday as Jacob was off school. A lovely friend who goes offered to take Emma along for me. I am so thankful for this help as the kids were arguing that morning and not getting on at all. This meant Emma didn't miss out on the group!
  • I am thankful that God is everywhere! I have missed Church over the last fortnight due to all the children's sickness! I missed the singing, Sunday school and good atmosphere. Thankfully God doesn't just "live" in Church and we can experience Him everywhere!
  • The Bible! Our ultimate guidebook and self help book in life.


  1. Hi Collette! I know how you feel about missing church. I missed it last week too!! But, yes, God is everywhere, and I'm so glad we can worship Him at any time!

  2. I am thankful for you and your post. I have been reading your Thankful Thursdays for a while and finally got on the wagon this week.

    By participating in this post it has opened my eyes more and I am looking for the blessings in my life. Not that I hadn't before but now I'm looking for the small things as well that I was before over looking.

    Have a blessed day.

  3. I totally know where you're coming from when you talk about having to miss church. What I love the most though, is the fact that God and fellowshipping with His people is so important to you, that you were sad to have missed it. I believe that God totally blessed you because of the desires of your heart!!

  4. You have a beautiful thank you list. I hope your little one gets well soon and you find your way back to normal days with a little one.

    Blessings and prayers, andrea

    PS: Sitka has an award for you at All God's Creatures.

  5. Collette,

    Great list this week! I am grateful for my Mom's advice, too. I really enjoyed reading how God used the people around you to lighten your load during this "sick" week.

    Hey, Mr. Linky is up and working if you'd like to stop back by and link up.

    God Bless,

  6. Friends are the best, especially in time of need when they step in at just the right time!


  7. Collette,

    I love your list! Great right down to the very end with our instruction book on Life!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
