Thankful Thursday

Happy Thankful Thursday Everyone!!!
Today my thankful post is going to be around a few verses in
Colossians 1:9-14
9 So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. 10 Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.
11 We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy,[
c] 12 always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light. 13 For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom[d] and forgave our sins.
This evening I received a phone call from my Mother-in-law telling me how much she & Charlie appreciated the meal I brought over for them on Tuesday. She said that every time Charlie & her see me they notice I’m always happy that I don’t let anything get me down. I told them why should I God’s in control He knows what’s going to happen even before it occurs. I thought that was interesting. So I am thankful that my actions are being noticed by others & they are questioning me about it (God).
I’m thankful for the time that Karl and I had shared together. The last couple of days were quite nice & very much needed.
I am thankful for my parent’s safe trip down to Tucson & back up to Phoenix. It’s nice to have every one home again where we belong. The house is back to normal TV on and Travis’ loud mouth in the background but I wouldn’t want any other way. I sure did miss him but I think his Dad missed him more, there playing football together on the video game system. I don’t know who missed it the most….lol!!!!
I’m just happy & thankful that God brought everybody home safely and took care of everybody’s needs.
Lord Thank you for the many Blessings that you drop in my life daily.

Wonderful testimony, Heather. I'm proud of you.

The verses you posted, those are the verses I prayed for Missy, Laura and Adam growing up. I didn't do a separate verse for each of them like I'm doing with the grandkids. Anyway, this passage is very near and dear to my heart.

Love you.
