Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone and welcome to another Thankful Thursday. I am happy to be joining Sonya at Truth 4 the Journey and listing 5 things which I am thankful to God for over this last week. So here goes!

  • Answered prayers. Emma has settled into nursery really well. Much better than I could have expected. I am thankful to God for this one. He heard my anxious prayers about how she would do and knew better than me!

  • My mum is beginning to feel a little better. She has been so ill since around November. Unable to get out of the house, little energy, breathless. Since getting the Doctor out this week she has received some more medication and is turning another little corner.

  • The snow and ice has gone! I am thankful for this as walking to school was treacherous. It was like ice skating and the kids and I are not ice skaters. The walk to school is at a much quicker pace thankfully!

  • God is patient with us and forgiving. Lately I just haven't had my Bible out much at all. Life has become quite busy with Emma starting nursery. We get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life and don't give the Lord his rightful place. I long for the day when I get to rise before the kids (they are up with the larks so I couldn't do that just now) and spend some time with my Bible.

  • This is quite personal and hard to share but I have to because it is all down to God. Before Christmas I began reducing my dose of anti depressants. I have been on these since having post natal depression after Jacob's birth. I am now down to one a week! I was on the lowest dose anyway so over the next fortnight I plan to stop this one and then I will be done! I am so thankful to God for getting me through the days where I have felt a bit down. I feel great and am grateful to be at this point.


  1. What a wonderful list. Praise the Lord that Emma is settling in and that your mom is feeling better. Also, I am very proud of you for the depression meds. I know how hard that is as I have been there before. You are doing a great job! Take care

  2. What wonderful news about Emma!! The Lord hears our prayers before we speak, and answers while we are yet speaking!
    Great thankful list Collette! He is our very present help in time of need!

  3. Glory be to God for your path to recovery. I know God is with you and the victory is already yours!

  4. I am with you on the Bible reading. I do need to get it out and start reading it again. I do however read every verse that bloggers put down. Great list.

  5. Rejoicing with you for getting off the meds. God is faithful and will continue to be with you every step of the way. Blessings, SusanD

  6. I love your list.

    Collette. If you're concerned about your depression returning there's a great herbal product, I use it - for more than depression, called SAM-e. I do not know if it is available in the UK or not. It's worth checking into and seeing. It's something the body already produces. In some cases enough isn't being produced. Supplementing it will help tremendously. It's good for a great number of things. Do some research on and check it out.

  7. Praising GOD with you for all HE is doing in and through your life.
    Blessings, hugs, and prayers,

  8. He'll replace ANXIOUS with EAGER...:)

    Little corner turn to big avenues...may she continue to get better.

    Those wee ones are WATCHING what you do, so reading your Bible is one of THE BEST decisions, I totally agree :)

    Congratulations on being done with those meds! May God enhance your days.

  9. Wow... what a lot of blessings this week. God is very good!

  10. a great's the little things that make a big difference...have a great rest of the week. sarah
