Thankful Thursday #7

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey 

This week...
1. I am thankful that the Lord has been working in me/my heart, enabling me to more readily extend His grace, mercy, and compassion (much needed especially when I start to get frustrated and don't know what to do) towards my challenging child who is gifted but possibly have Asperger's syndrome (from what we've researched).  I have been praying for more patience and for wisdom regarding how to understand, teach, train, encourage, and discipline him.  I would greatly appreciate your prayers for us.

2. I am thankful for words of encouragement, words of appreciation, and words of edification from my family, friends (including online friends), and anyone.  I truly appreciate all your kind, honest, and uplifting comments.  Thanks for taking the time to touch people's lives with your words.

3. I am thankful for a warm shelter, warm showers, warm blankets, and warm food.  These things remind me to pray for the homeless.  How hard and miserable it must be for them, especially when it's cold, windy, and wet out!  I encourage you all to support your local homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and to have some food/water supplies and/or extra blankets, coats, socks, etc. available in your vehicles to give out to the homeless whom you may meet on the streets.

4. I am thankful that my children have embraced modesty since they were young.  Modesty is Biblical and beautiful. 

5. I am thankful that the Lord has blessed me through winning blog giveaways.  This month, I have won a book, a DVD, and a $25 e-gift card to an online printing store.  Speaking of giveaways, I am hosting one at my HSB blog.  You have a chance to win a Yoplait Kids Prize Pack.  Two winners will be randomly drawn this Saturday.  There are only 6 entries so far; therefore, you have a great chance for winning :).  Hope you'll stop by and enter!

Such a lovely list of blessings! I, too, am so thankful that God is there for us as we raise our children. Don't know what I would do without Him!

Happy Thankful Thursday!

enjoyed your blog..... We do have many things to be thankful for! Even in the midst of difficulties. You had stopped by my blog - broken for god...
You mentioned my song. I received it the other morning - The Lord woke me up with the words so I wrote it down quickly. Now I'm working on the melody! :)
God Bless, Holly

Thank God for blessing you in many wonderful ways. I am praying for you as you care for your dear child. I have worked with children with special needs before and I know it can be very challenging and tough at times. May God continue to give you the much needed wisdom, grace and strength. May He showers His love and blessings on your family always. Take care. Happy TT!

God bless,
