Thankful Thursday 7/23

What I am thankful for this week?

1. After the worst 7 days in recent memory, I am truly thankful that the week is over. Thank you Jesus! Keep moving me forward.

2. I am thankful for caring friends who rise up and pray for me when I can't or won't do it myself.

3. I am thankful that my family (including hubs) went to the theme park together! It was a wonderful day. We still aren't sure if we'll get a real vacation this summer, so it was nice to do something together.

4. I'm thankful that my writers conference is in just 2 weeks! Wow! I'm so excited to go for lots of reasons. I'll learn so much, great opportunities, and GIRLS TRIP with my friend Sonya (who hosts the Thankful Thursday meme at her blog).

5. I'm thankful that Jesus covers all of my sins. When God looks he doesn't see my mess ups, but Jesus' perfection. I need that, because hard as a try, I just can't seem to get it right. Thank you Jesus!

What are you thankful for this week??

I'm glad all is looking up for you over at your house. May God restore the joy that you've been missing over the past week, 100 fold!

Love you! Can't wait for our girls trip!!

Kelly, I hope you felt the prayer of the faithful as you went through your challenging time.

I hope you have a wonderful time at the Conference - what a fun thing to look forward to!

Sorry about your hard week. I am thankful for all the support in the blogging world, too. Glad your family got to do something fun. And like you sis, I look forward to getting away for the conference! I'll look forward to the ride and getting to know you and Sonya better.

Rejoicing with you that when God looks at me, He sees the righteousness of Christ instead of the sin I allow to creep in.

Praying for a spectacular week for you and your family.
Blessings ~ Lisa

I am also thankful that God overlooks my imprefections and loves me anyway.

I guess there is no way you and Sonya can take me along on that trip. Pretty please.

We are just taking a short weekend trip to the mountains for our family vacation. It will be short but sweet.

We really enjoyed seeing you yesterday, and I hope it was a fun afternoon for you. RJ2 wanted to go to your house to play Polly Pockets and Groovy Girls.... it was hard to let go of the day.

I know the last week was miserable, but I'm so glad that you all are making in through in His strength. That doesn't mean everything gets rosy, but it does mean that you can see the Light at the end of the tunnel, as you shared with us before.

Hang in there, my friend! It's brighter today than yesterday....

Collette@Jesuslovesmums said...

It is unbelievable what God has done for us isn't it?

Lovely list!

What a beautiful list this week. It "IS" such a blessing that Jesus covers our sins and forgives us daily.
