Thursday Thanks Tank

Inspired by Peach...

In random order...

1. Very thankful for a wonderful surprise in the mail. My mom who checks in here occasionally saw my post about my initial difficulties finding books for the Armchair Traveler Reading Challenge. She then printed off my list, took it to her local Borders, tracked down this one, and it arrived yesterday!

2. Thankful for two recent in-the-moment realizations of how much I love my kids and hubby. I've been trying to make a conscious effort after reading this post earlier this week.

3. Thankful for my freedom in Christ. I am a daughter. I am an heir. I am to be free of fear. Often, folks complain about "why become a Christian - look at all the stuff you CAN'T do!" Instead we should think about...when someone looks at me- do they see a slave or a son? Do they see forced labors or freedom!?

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

4. Thankful for this song that got my heart pumping this morning.

5. Thankful for breath, sight, hearing, and health. I've been thinking profoundly about what life would be like without them.

Go by Peach's place today to see what she's thankful for and swing by Iris's as well to visit with her and the other ladies of Thankful Thursday.

Great list. What a treat to find a book in the mail. One of my favorite things. Thanks for the prayers. It means more than you'll know.

Great thankful list! How wonderful to get a surprise book in the mail! I love books... Blessings on your family as you begin to homeschool! *Sigh* I enjoy that beauty of living on Lake Michigan daily as well! We are blessed.

How neat that your mom was able to help you out :). Moms are the best, no matter what age we are...

I don't think that I have ever heard the song "I am Free", but I really like the lyrics to it.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this past week.

Be blessed today and always.
