Thankful Thursday…down to the wire

I am way late to the party but sometimes ya just gotta be thankful when the inspiration strikes.

So Thank you Sonya for hosting Thankful Thursday.

I walked in my house and the DH and DD were asleep.

The puppy looks at me longingly from his crate with expectation but quickly settles back down and falls asleep as well.

I opened up the old laptop and settled in to visit some of my favorite blogs.

I wasn’t planning to post tonight but after reading several of your Thankful Thursdays and then making a trip to the potty (keep reading it will make sense when you get to my number 5) I recognized that I had a few minutes to get mine in under the wire.

You see

#1 Thursdays are my Accountability Group night. The name of our group is The Persistent Momma’s! That's what we do!

We persist, just like the persistent widow only as mom’s we week after week come together to pray for our children and many other things.

There are four of us and we meet each week on Thursdays. We talk, study Gods word and pray, pray, pray. Word fails to adequately describe the levels of sistership I feel for these three women. They have been my Aaron and Hur more times than I can even count.

#2 the study we are doing is a book called “Praying the Names of God” This evening we talked about Yahweh Shalom, the God of peace.

And I quote “Yahweh Shalom is a title rather than a name. In it’s deepest meaning, it expresses the hope that the person may be well in every sense of the word – fulfilled, satisfied, prosperous, healthy, and in harmony with themselves, others, and God.

Shalom is a covenant word, an expression of God’s faithful relationship with his people.

I am thankful for God, my Yahweh Shalom!

#3 the green peppers I picked from my garden. It may seem a bit simple but the excitement I receive every time I pick a home grown veggie from something I planted, I get this profound sense of God provision and His awesome creative ability.

#4 I am thankful for dry erase markers which leads me to the final thing I am so very thankful for in the last few minute of this Thankful Thursday.

#5 and lastly as I settled in to enjoy my quiet house this evening I went into my DD bathroom and there on the mirror written with a dry erase marker was a bible verse.

PS 25:4 Show me your ways, O LORD,

teach me your paths;

PS 25:5 guide me in your truth and teach me,

for you are God my Savior,

and my hope is in you all day long.

Yesterday the lesson at Wednesday Night Youth bible study was on the importance of memorizing scripture. One of the things we discussed on the way home was… you guessed it, writing a bible verse on the bathroom mirror with a dry erase maker so you will see it every day.

God is good all the time!!!

All the time God is good!!!

I am very thankful this evening!

Such great Thankful Thursday things! Loved that you dd is following the suggestion about verses where you'll see them. Wonderful idea! How special to have these other persistent mamas to pray with, provide accountability, and be true sisters in Christ. Amen!

Excellent! It's so good to have such encouragement from sisters in Christ. Also, I LOVE that you had a box turtle on a chain like I did. That is so amazing! I wish I had a picture of my old box turtle pet, but alas, I do not. Do you?

That is such a FABULOUS suggestion about the dry erase on the mirror! I have never heard of this. I'm so grateful for my 8 years in AWANA with my kids. We memorized SO much Scripture - and I put most of it to music or I would have NEVER memorized it. But now, though I have Bible study with the kids, we don't work on the memorizing aspect.

THIS is great! Thanks, Robin. :) Blessings on you and your sweet family today.

That verse on your daughter's mirror had to have made your day. Is there anything more thrilling than to see our children walking in HIS way?? Great post. I was thrilled with and for you!!
