Thankful Thursday.....and other things

Ok, for the first time in a long time I remembered Thankful Thursday! What prompted me to remember was that I talked to Linn yesterday. Please continue to pray for her and her family....they are so very strong and trust in the Lord like no one I've ever known but they are truly feeling the effects with all that is going on with their house situation and other important things. But true to who Linn is...she was very concerned about someone else (little Kate who just had heart surgery and needs prayer).

Again, please pray for the Saunders....they seem to be facing a Job-like trial right now (MY words, not hers). It continues to be one thing after another for this sweet family.

Ok, now about my "mobile blogging." I'm super excited that I can post from my cell phone!! And I don't have a special phone...just a plain-jane phone. If you have a blog of your own, they added a link (on your dashboard) to enable your blog to receive text messages that will add a post. It's super cool. But don't worry....I wasn't driving while I was posting....I was actually sitting at home right in front of my computer!! I wanted to make sure it worked before I did it while out and about. I intended to write a real post later in the day but just never got to it. I'm busy beyond measure these days....not sure why! So forgive me if you hang on my every not-so-interesting word but....priorities you know! :)

So VERY THANKFUL.....

1. That even though I get bent out of shape sometimes because my house is out-of-control messy.....at least I have a house! Thank you Jesus for my messy house!!!

2. That I'm so busy with my kiddos that I haven't had time to shop for some much-needed new clothes for myself! When I get frustrated with all I do for THEM, I picture the scene being that they are grown and gone....so sad!! I try to cherish every moment...even the frustrating ones.

3. I'm super thankful that it appears that we have more than enough frequent flier miles to sit in Business Class when we fly to Ch*na at the economy rate!! Woo hoo!!!

4. Brenden's first paycheck!!! Let's see how fast it takes for him to spend it....

5. Tea...green, black...and TEA PARTIES!!!! Particularly those that protest unjustified spending by our out-of-control (socialistic) administration. At least we still have the freedom to protest...for now. Oh, and did you know that the FTC wants to start regulating blogs (yes, even Mom blogs like this one)? Are we still in America?? Well, the majority of the country voted for CHANGE....look out, we're gettin' it. OK, 'nuff said. PRAY.



6. Fun finds! I bought this cute sign to put in my kitchen...(K-man had to stop and think about if it is true....I'm not sure whether to be offended or complimented).




7. My grandmother's sewing machine...it's running like a dream!

8. Teenagers. Yep, I love my teenagers....they are the best ever and make me laugh constantly!!!!

9. Great Awakenings.....Nick and I have been studying revivals of the past...we desperately need another one.

10. Spring....what's not to love!?

Oh and how can I not be thankful for the most amazing little girl.....

Sweet!!!

I love the last picture. It is so sweet.

I follow Lynny's blog as well and have been praying for them for some time. She is such an inspiration to me.

I love teens too, my boys have been/are great. Something tells me teen girls might not be the same??? tell me it ain't so!

I love your sign. your DH was probably deciding which way to answer that "If I say yes will I get into trouble?"

Sarah the Kool Kid said...

Sally- That Girl! said...

Oh Good than I am thankful for my house too!!!

Love the last picture. That is worth framing!

Jean said...

So much to be thankful for! The big kids are awesome!! We are prayin and thinkin about the Saunders family- they are so being challenged by the opposition. We need to lift them up in prayer! They are such an inspiration to so many!

I understand your frustration and so agree when we really look at it we have nothing to be frustrated about... just thankful!

Blessings,
Jean

In a hotel for the night in Alamosa. Since yesterday morning I have driven 765 miles. I am one whooped mama.

Fun to talking to you yesterday...

And today I had a pecan cluster turtle blizzard...the girl had no clue how to make it...sure wish your son could have made it...

And on a final note...love that you can blog from your phone...that way K-man and the boys won't know that when you take extended trips to the ladies room you are really blogging - good one girlfriend - very tricky!! xo

Janet and Kevin said...

Lori - great post. Thought provoking on our rights as citizens in the U.S. Also, I got a chuckle out of your sign! Would make my husband think, too!

You're too much my friend. Right on post.

And for the record - I will NEVER believe that your house is EVER messy. At least not by anyone else's definition of messy. LOL.
