Thursday Fun!

So this week I couldn't decide which to do, Thankful Thursday or Thursday Thirteen (I told you before that I have trouble with making decisions). So here are my 13 things I am thankful for this week:

1) My relationship with the Lord and that I just fall a little more in love with Jesus everyday!
2) A Christian husband! I have been married to him when he wasn't walking with the Lord and his faith has changed our lives and our marriage!
3) Having 7 healthy and (relatively) normal children!
4) My eyesight. 10 years after LASIK surgery I am still amazed to wake up and see the clock clearly!
5) My Dad seeking help this week for his addiction to alcohol!
6) My Mom celebrating one year of being free of cigarettes!
7) My husband's job that provides so well I am able to stay home and serve our family!
8) Being called into CBS ministry and being used by God to make a difference in the lives of others!
9) That I got to know all of my grandparents before they passed away and to know I will one day see them again!
10) Godly friendships!
11) My church home and lifegroup!
12) Grace by faith not by works, and living with the power of the Holy Spirit!
13) And today I am especially thankful for God's promise that:

"neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future,
nor any powers, neither height nor depth nor anything else in all creation, will be able
to separate me from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39


Have a blessed Thursday!
