Thankful Thursday!

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

  • On Sunday we had a wonderful praise service at Church. It was great to just spend an hour singing to God and thanking Him for all that He has done for us. All the kids were really well behaved too!
  • At our 4pm meeting on a Sunday our Church has been doing a Bible study. The next book we will study is Ruth. We have just finished 1Peter. I am really looking forward to studying Ruth.
  • Lately, dare I say it, I have been getting much more sleep at night thanks to Emma sleeping much more soundly! I am VERY thankful to God for this as many of you know, this has been a major issue with Emma since she was around 6 months!
  • On Monday I wrote a post about not being in God's word enough. Later that morning I arrived at our Toddlers group to help set up very early with Emma. I decided to grab a Church Bible and sat down with it and read Proverbs 9, Psalm 9 and the book of Ruth. God really does hear our prayers!!!
  • Finally, I am thankful that each Thursday I can come here and think specifically about what I am thankful to God for. It is so easy to get carried away with the busyness of the week and forget to stop and ponder!
So what do you have to be thankful for today?


  1. That's great that the Lord gave you that time to be in His word!! It really is refreshing!!!!

  2. Collette, I agree wholeheartedly with you! Have a great day!

  3. Great list Collette...I grabbed my bible yesterday and went "cruising" also!!


  4. What a sweet list! I can always say I'm not in God's Word enough (sigh). And YAY for the extra sleep.

    Now, about your comment on my last post. Since I don't have your email, I'll just post this for the world to see. But I am still 200 pounds. Nobody 200 pounds is thin. I look a lot better than I did before, that's for sure. Anyway, the last 30 have been stuck for a while. I had really hoped to be where I should by this Christmas (since I started June 2008.

    I appreciate the encouragement. You are very sweet. (And "don't wear jeans" made me giggle.)

    Love & hugs,

  5. What a beautiful list. I am thankful you were able to realize the details of care GOD is providing for you. Sometimes we overlook those beautifully placed moments in our lives.
    Blessings, andrea

  6. I love your list!! I think it's true that God will hear our prayers and help us along, even if we aren't paying attention. :) And I'm glad that your daughter is sleeping!!

  7. Collette,

    God word is truly giving you back so much more peace and quiet in your life. Love that you can see a huge difference.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  8. The sleep-full nights is such a bonus!
    A great list.

  9. I'm glad you've been getting more sleep and getting to spend more time in God's Word. Have a blessed day in the Lord!

  10. Gotta love getting some sleep!

    I did a Bible study of Ruth a few years ago. It was wonderful!

    Love and Hugs, Leslie
