Thankful Thursday!

Today I am thankful for:

That I can cast my cares to my Savior.

Spending time with Aunts and Uncles from out of state that came to visit my Mom.

My sister who had a fish fry with the fish that she caught while on vacation on the West Coast.

Butterfinger cake....yum yum

My Aunt Sadie that lives in Florida staying a week to spend time with my Mom.

My Mom who always takes the time to talk to me.


My husband who tries to be understanding....while he is lost on dirt roads in Nebraska.

Answered prayers.

That in the midst of a storm ...God gives me peace.

All the volunteers who are helping with Kids Kamp this weekend.

We have 80+ children registerd for Kids Kamp.

The Children's Team that I am a part of who plans the Kids Kamp each year. This is a LOT of work and I am so thankful that our team works great together.

My neice Bralynn who has a birthday this weekend.

My neice Ashlynn who is getting to spend the weekend with me at Kids Kamp.

Andrea (my daughter) is going to work with Day Kampers this weekend.

Everyday with you Lord sweeter than the day before. This is a song the choir has sang I think 2 times...But, this week I have been singing this as I get up. I am thankful for the choir and the director who bless my heart with praises each Sunday.

I am thankful that I have a friend in Jesus...I can talk to HIM anytime, anywhere and HE will always be there to listen. When I call on Jesus I don't get an answer machine or voice mail. HE is with me....therefore I am never alone.

You have such a sense of family it sounds like. How precious family should be to us. I'm thankful for my family too. I wonder if I express that to them enough.

Krista said...

What is it about all my friends and their dessert this week? You with your butterfinger cake and Tricia with her chocolate cake with mint choco ice cream! I need to come visit you guys.

Sorry if you are getting voicemail for me today, my phone is on the charger at the house! It's doing me a lot of good there.
