Iris is hosting for August so be sure to go there to link up your Thankful Thursday post and to read others.
We've been blessed beyond belief this week and though I'm not outlining everything that's happened today, I will be sharing later on.
This week, as always, I'm thankful for the little things and the big things. I have more friends today than I thought I would ever have over a life time. Praise the Lord, because it is only through His grace that a shy, unpopular farm girl would ever grow up to find so much love and acceptance from others. As great as that is I remind myself daily that none of that matters so much in the long run - what matters is that Jesus Christ loves me and accepts me into His kingdom through the faith I've placed in Him. Thank you, Jesus!
This summer has been a disappointing one as far as our garden goes. Still, I give thanks for the harvest that we have enjoyed thus far. Every little bit helps and we will trust God for provision through the winter. He has not failed us yet and I know that He will not fail us in the future. His Word promises that much.
What are you thankful for? It's important to share with others and to remind each other that what blessings we enjoy are not of our own doing. It's from God above.
