Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey
It's Thankful Thursday again at Truth 4 the Journey and I am running about 8 hours behind....but better late than never right?
1. I am thankful for a new mom's ministry kicking off tonight at our church. I'm thankful for my friend Felicia, who stepped out of her comfort zone, to start this ministry and I am most thankful to God for confirming over and over to her that this was in HIS plan.
2. I am thankful for a successful day of packing at the Gunter house....and that everything is moving right along for us to move to our new house on October 1.
3. I am thankful for a breakfast out to Cracker Barrell with my missionary friend Miriam. I am thankful for the work she and her husband do in Peru...and especially that they are on furlough and that we are getting to spend lots of time together.
4. I am thankful for hot water- not because I have it...we have been out of it for 5 days in the RV...we need a part replaced and are having trouble locating it. Sometimes you have to go without something before you realize how thankful you are for it. Hot water is one of those things!
5. I am thankful for my mother in law, who loves to do laundry and has been doing mine for the last 2 months so that I don't have to spend time or money at the laundrymat. Bless her!
What are you thankful for this Thursday?

Hey Gina, It's so wonderful to hear you will be moving into your new house soon.

I can so relate to the hot water. We were without power for an entire week back in May. We had no lights but a gas hot water heater. I was ever so thankful for that.

Blessings, SusanD

Gina,

What a great Thankful Thursday list to share with all of us. I guess we take for granted things lot HOT WATER and I know when our thermal coupler went out on our water heater and we were left with cold water, it really changes things until the part could be replaced.

Congratulations on your new ministry opportunity and new home!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

How wonderful of your mother in law to do your laundry! Being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel...moving day in only 2 weeks! Keep your eyes on Jesus! Great list! Thanks for visiting my blog!

Oh man! So true. Sometimes you have to spend a few days without something in order to remember how thankful you really are for it. Praying your hot water is restored.

I agree with what you said: "Sometimes you have to go without something before you realize how thankful you are for it." We tend to take things, even our loved ones for granted at times.

Hope your moving into your new house wil go smoothly.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a blessed weekend!

Wow your mother in law does that? That in itself would be a blessing for me. :) I would love some cracker barrel right about now.
