Well it is again time for Thankful Thursday and I have to say I can't believe how quickly the days go by.  Here we are practically to mid March and it seems as if Christmas has barely been put away.  I have many things again to be thankful for and I just can't believe how much joy it really does bring into my heart when this day rolls around and I count them up.   First of all I am grateful for the answered prayers that have been blessing me recently.  The car situation for my son. (see previous post) And then the fact that while it might be a little slower than I would like (I can be soo impatient) I am DEFINITELY starting to feeling better.  Thank God for caring Doctors, medicine, and my family who has helped me out.  The fact that the Lord (as always) has calmed my anxieties, lifted my spirits and left a peace in my heart.  I am so grateful that through the blood of Jesus we DO have power over the enemy.   I am grateful that most of the time I feel as good as I do, and I promise I won't be taking that for granted again.   I am grateful for praise music which I can turn on and listen to whenever I would like and feel my spirit connect with the Lord, and that then drifts through my mind and spirit long after I have turned it off.  I am grateful for all the blogs that I have come to count on for not only my pleasure and enjoyment, but for spiritual learning and growth.   As I have been sick these last couple of weeks and forced to sit still, I can't tell you how much it has blessed me to travel around (be it only in the blogsphere) and visit soo many wonderful women.  What a true wonder that really is.  I would soo love to go through and name each and every blog that blesses me personally and why, haha, but that might take me quite a while as there are soo many of you.  But I do want you to know how special you are to me and how much you make my heart glad.  I have felt your prayers recently and I am soo grateful for that as well.   I am soo grateful that my Melly is coming on the 20th of this month and will be here for a FULL week.  YAY...I am grateful that spring is around the corner and with it warm days, cool breezes and soo many flowers to enjoy and look forward to.  Yes, everywhere you look you can see the Lord at work blessing His people and filling our lives with His care and love, and how grateful I am.   This verse has been soo meaningful to me this week as I have watched the Lord answer prayer in my life. 

Phl 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

Because after we do this, we are promised this..

Phl 4:7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

It just doesn't get any better than this...

  1. So glad that you are starting to feel better Debbie! What a relief!

    I didn't know that Melanie was visiting for a whole week! That is very exciting. I'm sure you two will have a great time together. Enjoy it, I know you will!

  2. I'm glad to read that you're beginning to feel a bit better. Greg and I are under the weather too but just an ordinary cold, not pneumonia. I think it was all the stress with our move.

    I pray that you feel well for your visit with Melanie.

    Blessings and love,

  3. So glad to know that you are feeling better and for other praise reports! Glory be to God! I love the Scripture you shared because it reminded me of His gift of peace at the time that my family and I were going through a tough trial...May you continue to regain your strength 100%. God bless you and your family.

  4. I'm so glad you are starting to feel a bit better Debbie! Hope you feel better each day. You'll be ready to run around with Mel before you know it!

  5. God is with you and has blessed you with everything great and small. Amazing days ahead for you.

  6. Praise God that you are feeling better.

  7. I am so thankful you are better. It seems like everyone is being attacked and of course we know where it is coming from. The enemy of our soul is a liar and a deceiver. We are in agreement to stand firm and claim the promises that are ours. Thank you for sharing your heart!
    Much love and blessings to you!

  8. Hi Debbie,
    I am so glad you are beginning to feel better and Mel is coming, yay. I am hoping that Stacy and Bella will visit in April and I can't wait. Bella has so much to say to me on the phone these days, and she just cracks me up.
    I hope you have lots planned with Mel, and are fully recovered to enjoy every minute. Yay...Mel is coming, I am so happy for you.

  9. as I read your post I continued to shake my head in aggreement yes it does seem like time has flied and actually it was just this week that I put up the remaining christmas items, oh my how the praise music at church, on the radio and where ever I can hear it continues to make my soul happy. I signe up to follow you if you find time please visit my blog as well

  10. Hi Debbie,
    You have just posted some scripture that always speaks directly to my heart. I found this scripture at a very low point in my life, and committed it to memory. It has and still blesses me. and i have to refer back to it quite often.
    As always I so enjoy reading your post. I am so glad that you are feeling better, and know what it is like to be confined, but like you I had a chance to meet other bloggers,and was so lifted by that.
    I am so happy that Melly is coming for a visit. There is no better medicine than a visit from our children,
    our daughter and granddaughters are coming for 6
    weeks this summer.
    I read your post about your son's car situation, And God is always so AWESOME.
    Thanks for coming by and for always encouraging me.
    Hugs, and Blessings,

  11. Blessed by your "Thankful" list!!

    He is Faithful!

    Luv, Hugs and Sweet Blessings!

  12. Oh Sweetie...
    I am so thrilled to hear that you are on the mend and feeling better. I would be so lost without my computer. My blog has brought me so many wonderful friends and so many beautiful places to travel and see, I would truly be lost without it.

    I am so grateful that yours has showered you with happiness. It just gives a person a "happy heart" to share you know?

    Please take care. Have a wonderful weekend sweetie. You will be out and about soon.

    Country hugs...Sherry
