Thankful Thursday - August 13

It's time for another Thankful Thursday. This week we are once again meeting at Grace Alone to collectively share our thankful posts. Please be sure to stop by and visit some or all of the thankful blogs - maybe post your own thankful post as well.

What a busy week for me -

My son is home from his mission trip to Africa; praise the Lord! He enjoyed the trip immensely, fell in love with the street boys, and allowed God to stretch him out of his comfort zone to minister to others. I'll forever be grateful to the Lord and to those who donated and prayed for this team of young missionaries for Jesus.

We are having warm weather this week which is helping my garden to grow at last. It might be too late for some of the plants, but it helps a lot. God is good.

We are getting ready to vacation with family in Indiana next week. We'll be giving Jonathon another open house for graduation from high school - it's the big party with all of the relatives. I'm giving thanks ahead for the blessings God will bestow.

What are you thankful for this week? "Give thanks to the Lord always, and again I say rejoice!"
