Thankful Thursday - June 17
I need to do it anyway. The days that I neglect my time with God are the days in which I have the most problems. God changes my way of thinking and behaving when I put Him first.
Today I am thankful for the sun shining and the warm-up. The older I get, the more the cold seems to make my body hurt. And I'm only 47! I can only imagine what life will be like at 77.
Speaking of 70's, my mom turned 79 this week. Praise God that she is still with us! A little more than a year ago, we didn't think she would live to see this day. God surprised even the doctors and nurses when He gave her more time to influence the lives of people here for Him.
I think that is why we all have more time here - either to witness to others of His love and forgiveness, or to come to repentance ourselves.
Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday. I'm off to work in my garden and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Maybe this weekend I can pick strawberries at a farm nearby. They are early this year.
