Welcome to Thankful Thursday again this week! If you'd like to participate, just stop by Sony'a Blog, Truth 4 The Journey, to sign up! Next write down five things you are thankful for this week. Finally, link up with Mr. Linky at her blog. It's that easy!
This has been a long and trying week. However, we have a great deal for which to be thankful!
1) My son-in-law, daughter and I got all but one strip (painters tape width) of my son's room painted. I'm going to work on that tonight and tomorrow night (so coats can dry) and my son should be able to move into his room only one week late. My son got all his laundry done and the (future) contents of his room organized.
2) Friends and "stranger" alike are praying for my mother-in-law and our family. We feel the prayers. We covet them. We need them.
3) The Bible contains the words of comfort and respite we need in those moments (and hours:-) when we feel too overwhelmed and tired to go on.
4) My son has been accepted into a one-year grant program through a partnership with VCU and the Dept. of Rehab Services. He has a job-coach assigned to him who will help him develop a current resume, help him find jobs for which to apply, conduct mock interviews with him and even attend interviews with him!
5) My sister-in-law is affording my husband a "day off" from visiting his mom. She will pick Audrey up and take her to have her hair done. Tomorrow Jim and Jeff will take Audrey to the doctor and then out to lunch.
My bonus Thankful Thursday item: We had a wonderful time last weekend with all three adult children here and rejoice in the blessing bestowed upon us by our children.
""Shall we accept good from God and not trouble?" In all this Job did not sin in what he said" (Job 2:10(a) NIV).
"As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed begged to go with him. Jesus did not let him, but said, "Go home to your family and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you." So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed" (Mark 5:18-20 NIV).
Blessings on your journey,
