Thankful Thursday


I am grateful for a number of blessings today.

The promise of the text, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." 2Cor. 12:9

My mother is recovering from a bad cough and cold which had her down the past few days. She has expressed over and over her thanks for my taking care of her this past week, while my sister and her husband (at whose home she lives) are vacationing overseas.

That I have been able to hold off coming down with a cold myself.

A kind friend who came by yesterday surprised me with an inspirational gift book.

The expectation of spring. The snow will not keep coming, nor will it stay cold forever!

"You are my God, and I will give you thanks;
you are my God, and I will exalt you.
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
His love endures forever.’
Psalm 118:28-29
