Thankful Thursday

"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his love endures forever."
Psalm 107:1

Today I am thankful for:
  • A friend from church who watched my kids during a Dr.'s appointment this week
  • Our taxes being done...whew!
  • Board Games. I just received Ticket to Ride in the mail (a late birthday present). I'm so excited! Let me know if you want to come over and play.
  • Spring Break. I've finished teaching for the week and now am officially on break. We are so in need of rest and some time away from the 'norm'.
  • The hint of Spring. We've had a mild winter but I'm still looking forward to the warmer weather. I'm hoping April brings showers rather than snowstorms.

Today I'm not thankful that my close friend has lost a little one in a recent miscarriage. I am thankful however that God is sovereign and that He will use this hardship in unexpected ways.

If you'd like, I'd enjoy hearing what you are thankful for (or not thankful for). Click on the comments link to share your heart.


  1. We're so in for Ticket to Ride. I'll check Amy's schedule. How many people can play?

  2. I'm thankful for the Outdoors and when the sun finnaly comes out to play with us!

  3. I'm thankful for YOU and for McDonald's that kept my children relatively quiet so we could chat :)

  4. My family LOVES Ticket to Ride. We play every chance we get, especially when my Mom is in town. We have introduced it to several friends and they LOVE it, too. My husband always wins, though, he is quite the student of the game. The hard part is finding time when the twins are entertained (napping) to play it.
