Thankful Thursday #15

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey 

This week...
1. I am thankful for snow.  We all love snow here.  We had our first snow of this winter on Tuesday and had lots of fun sledding.

2. I am thankful for my husband's time off work from Dec. 24th to Jan. 3rd.  We love having him home with us. 

3. I am thankful for our wonderful neighbors.  We enjoyed our visit with them when we gave them our Christmas goodies.  They are really nice people.

4. I am thankful for books that are encouraging & inspiring and draw readers closer to God and His Word.  You can see my top ten reads of 2009 here (the post below this one).

5. I am thankful for the eternal perspective God has given me.  Trials and sufferings on earth are nothing when we think of spending eternity in either heaven or hell.  "I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us." (Romans 8:18)  May you welcome a new year with an eternal perspective!  "Save some, O Christian!  By all means, save some.  From yonder flames and outer darkness, and the weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth.  Seek to save some!  Let this, as in the case of the apostles, be your great, ruling object in life, that by all means you might save some." Charles Spurgeon

I have to agree with your #3. We, too, have wonderful neighbors. They are just an extension of our family.

Your list of blessings are so good. I am glad for you too that your hubby has been able to spend time with you all. Snow sounds wonderful to me. As a Csalifornis gal I haven't seen much of that. May your New Year be truly blessed. Debbie

I love your eternal perspective! That is something the Lord is also teaching me so I was delighted to read what you wrote. It changes everything each day, doesn't it? Trials and problems don't seem so overwhelming. It's not that I enjoy them though but I look for the lessons God is teaching me in the midst of them.

What a blessing to read your TT post. May this next year be a good one for you and your family.
