Thankful Thursday......Random

Philippians 4:6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and THANK him for all he has done.

This week I am thankful for patience. There have been quite a few times I could have really lost my temper with my son, but with Gods help he pulled me through those situations. Sometimes it gets very difficult to teach Travis because no more am I his Mother but also his teacher. I have learned through the years to walk away and let both of us cool down, the problem is that sometimes I am so overwhelmed that I just cry my eyes out. One thing is I have realized is instead of me worrying about it I just pray to my Lord Jesus Christ to help me pull it all together again, it’s great to know that He’s always in control. So today I am thankful that at anytime I can call upon God because he’s always got my back.

I’m thankful for food. It’s comforting to know that there is food in the refrigerator and pantry so my family won’t go hungry. It’s also great that the many blogs I read that talk about planning a menu for the week and shows you how to do it, it really has helped me to get on board with planning a menu. I have to say I have meals planned for 3 weeks…..WooHoo. I ‘m hoping that really cuts down on so much spending.

I’m thankful that the gas prices are coming down, it’s about time.

I’m thankful for my dear husband who loves me unconditionally. He always tells me how much he loves and how beautiful I am everyday, despite what I think or believe. I just hope one day I can see what he sees through his eyes.

I am thankful that the medicines I am on are helping me to stay hive free. Everybody KNOCK on WOOD…..Please. It seems when I say that or tell someone how I am doing the hives come back even meaner than before.

Lord I am thankful for your unconditional love for me and that anytime day or night your arms are wide open too comfort and guide me.

I could use some patience.
our gas is down to 189 or 289 can't remember but it was the 89 is right.

I have lately been praying for added patience as well. Being a homeschooling Mom is a tough job, but very rewarding.

Good job on doing some meal planning. You will really enjoy the benefits! The problem is during that time, seeing ideas for things you want to make that weren't part of your plan!!!

I'm glad your meds are helping you.
Have a great day!
