If you would like to share your thankfulness, hop on over to Sonya's blog, Truth 4 The Journey and sign up to join us!

It has been a fascinating/challenging/blessed/angst-filled week! So much for which to thank God!! This week the top five items on my list are:

1) Edie at Rich Gifts once again makes my list for the week--this time she's moved to the top of the list!! I have "harassed" her all week for help with a blog I'm working on. She has been gracious and patient. I'm pretty sure there's a special place in heaven waiting just for her:-)

2) My faith! Isn't it funny how we say "my" faith? It's really a gift from God! My faith has been growing exponentially lately and it's almost too overwhelming to manage! I have been brought to my knees in humility and gratitude that God is working so intimately and specifically in my life.

3) The opportunity to minister to God's world through prayer. God placed a burden on my heart several days ago to PRAY. I knew of several friends dealing with various things in their lives, but I sensed that the burden was larger--"cast your net" larger. I put out a blanket statement on Facebook to that effect and have been blessed with friends and "strangers" contacting me to pray for them. Blessed. Blessed. Blessed.

4) My family is ever on the list and this past weekend we had a houseful! It was great! Son, daughter and son-in-law and their two dogs (our "grand-dogs":-), a marathon game of Trivial Pursuit, shopping, eating, laughing and oh, did I say eating!?

5) My Savior. 'Nough said!

Blessings on your journey,
