Thankful Thursday

  1. I am thankful to be back to work this week with my amazing students, my awesome staff, and my cozy little preschool. I am tired, but I love what I do, and I am thankful for each day I am able to do my best at this job I enjoy.
  2. I am thankful that the changes in store for my preschool are in the Lord's hands. I have one teaching assistant leaving in ten days, and one having some medical issues. God is good, and He is not surprised by these changes. He is not worried about them. HE IS. He Knows. He is good, and my preschool is in His hands.
  3. I am thankful for trials. I don't particularly like them, but I do believe the Lord uses them. I do believe God is good and He teaches me through trials, He strengthens me through trials.
  4. I am thankful for today. Yesterday is gone. I cannot take anything back or do anything differently. Tomorrow is unplanned, un-promised, and unknown. TODAY I can worship. Today I can love. Today I am the Lord's and He is my Father. I am so thankful for today.
  5. I am thankful for the Lord's promises, especially Lamentations 3:22-23. "The steadfast love the the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness, Oh Lord"
My prayer for you is the hope, joy, love, and thankfulness of TODAY. Wherever you are in your walk, your life, your dreams, or even your nightmares, Praise God for Today! It will only be here once.

  4. What a great list! Changes and trials sometimes make it difficult to Praise Him in the Storm, but you are Focused on the One and Only One who will see you through!
    Awesome prayer!

  5. A very good post. We have so much to be thankful for.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and your comments.

  6. Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. Your list is wonderful. And, can I just say that I'm a little jealous that you are in the RMs. I lived in Boulder for a few years and m.i.s.s. it. Have an awesome weekend. Blessings, SusanD

  7. Brookie:

    What a precious "job" you've been given, preschoolers! They have so much love and FORGIVENESS in them. WOW...sweet.

    A scripture on my calendar for today, causes me to want to share it with you as well:

    His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 4:7 TLB.

    Thank you stopping in and encouraging me.
