Woo Hoo!! I did it!! Thanks Robin for the heads up on the "edit html". I am so slow. Please laugh with me not at me (smile!)

I am very thankful that I was able to go to She Speaks and learn to get the little picture on here. I am still working on some other things like "tags". (Angela, I have tried and hopefully will get it!)

I am thankful that my God is so good and answers prayers.

I am thankful for my church which is growing in having a heart for prayer.

I am thankful for blogworld and all the beautiful Christlike sisters I have met and been encouraged by.

I am thankful I get to meet Heather on Monday, and that she is getting a wonderful Bible Study published in September.

I am thankful for the 24 kids at our VBS tonight, and that I got to pray with a 5th grade boy to recieve the Wonderful Gift of Jesus. I was in awe knowing that our Savior is living in his little heart and will be with him always. Please pray for him as he is from an unchurched/broken home and is just transitioning into living with his dad and going to a new school this fall. Guess what his name is...Christian!! I wonder if his mama knew it was prophetic when she named him!

I am thankful for my beautiful daughter who has given up her summers for the last 5 years to be a missionary and lead little ones/and this summer bigger ones to Jesus.

I am thankful for my son who loves Truth and Righteousness and stands strong in his faith. And for his humor.

I am thankful for my husband and how hard he works. That we can have true fellowship in the Lord and that he has prayed with me recently.

I am thankful for my friend Holly who means the world to me. Who God is doing some amazing things for and for her perseverence, by His grace.

I am thankful for the amazing Promised Land/ the Living Word, my Bible.

Sweet Sweetness. That's all I gotta say!

Hi Kathy,

I really enjoyed your TT list. What a neat family. I don't remember if I met you while at She Speaks. Hope I did.

Love your site and your thankful heart. Blessings.

There is nothing like the privilege of praying with someone to receive so great a salvation. I'm so happy for you!

Kathy, I enjoy your thankful list. I am thankful too that God answers prayers. Thank God for blessing you with family and friends. So wonderful that your daughter is becoming a missionary for our Lord. I pray that God will make her a blessing to others who come into her paths. Thanks for sharing your thankful heart with us. Take care and God bless!

Praise God for the opportunity to bring one to His throne! It gives me chills every. single. time. We had 25 kids accept Christ last week at VBS. I'm still kind of overwhelmed!

Angie said...

Kathy---this was the best post! I felt the Spirit of the LORD when I read about little "Christian"! How neat! God is so good. I am so very thankful that we were able to meet. I think in awe and amazement about how the Lord orchastrated that!
Have a blessed ---awesome Thursday. I have been praying for you. For all the needs at hand.

Hi Kathy, it was a great day for me to visit your blog. Things have NOT been going well lately. If it can go has! Your thankful list helped me put things back into right prespective!

Hi Kathy!
Thanks for visiting me!

I love your post. We so often are fighting our battles that we don't stop and say thank you for the ones already won!

I also admire you for your fast from chocolate and coffee...gotta admire you cause I don't think I could do it! Not the chocolate anyway! I'm hoping manna will taste like chocolate!

I'll come back soon!

Oh, yes we used the heavenly shower heads too. I think my brother-in-love ordered one. They are incredible. Are those pictures of your garden on your left side thingy? It looks amazing! I need more pictures! :-) I just found a lil pumpkin growing in mine this morning. Delight!

Peculiar said...

Kathy, I'm glad I stopped by your place. Your blog header is so nice!

You have much to be grateful for it sounds like. We just aren't able to say we can't think of anything to thank the Lord for daily. It's just not possible. Thank you Jesus.

The Liebers said...

WOW! What a list. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Tiffany Stuart said...

Wonderful list, full of relationships. Enjoyed it. And I am thankful for my son's humor too.

Thanks for your sweet comment this week.

Angela said...

Hi Kathy! I hope I can explain this type your post normally and then highlight the words you want to be your "link", then you click on the "add link" icon which is next to the add pic button. you may have to allow scripted windows(i always have to do this first) and then try again. It will add some computer mumbo jumbo to your blog but when you view the finished product it looks normal, and people can link to other pages. Is mumbo jumbo a technical term? Let me know if you can't get it to work. Yay only four more days for your fast! I am proud of you!

A happy heart at home said...

That was a beautiful list of people and things to be thankful for! Praise the Lord!

How wonderful for you to lead that boy to Jesus!

Hi Kathy,
This is Rev. I finally got a blog set up, it is fortresstower144. From Psalm 144. Your blog is very cool. How did you get a song to play on it? I like the pictures you have set up. My blog is kinda plain except for a few pics. It's a work in progress! I hope your weekend is going well. I have started to pray and study about half an hour to one hour each day, well, most days, so far! It's such a wonderful blessing to be able to make time to do that. I listened to the CD's you borrowed to me and they were great! Both the speakers spoke on great topics and it was very motivating to listen to them. I am not sure if I will always have a whole hour each day but for now I am starting at at least half an hour, and it is not enough! But I am getting better at getting up earlier in the morning. Hope you and your family are doing very well this summer.
In Christ,
Reverie W. Saturday, August 2nd 2008
