Time for another Thank You Thursday! It seems like I was just posting for last Thursday...where does the time go??
I have been so challenged lately to use my time more wisely (you all know I'm a procrastinator!), and to be more thankful, and this past week I've been making a concerted effort to be more aware of the needs around me.
But, as I have made this effort to give something (time, material goods,encouragement, etc.) every day I have become overwhelmed with this fact:
You can't out-give God.
Did you really hear that? You can't out-give God. WOW!
So, for my Thank You Thursday post this week, I want to focus on what God has done for me this week.
Thank You, God, for the awesome blog candy that you have allowed me to win recently. I am so excited for all of the fun ways that I am finding to use it for others! (Besides, it's just plain wonderful to get a package in the mail, lol!)
Thank You, God, for the blessing of caring for our friend's baby on Monday night. We were able to use it as a time of learning for my oldest dd, who will be able to start babysitting soon (*gasp* Can she really be that old already??). And we had so much fun!!
Thank You, God, for the special time with my best friend yesterday. We used the time to make cards of encouragement for others, but we were the ones who were the most encouraged. Aah, the blessings of friendship!
(look for individual posts about each of these cards later today or tomorrow)
Thank You, God, for the bea-u-ti-ful weather we're having this week! Oh, the sunshine is so awesome!! Love that special blessing from You!
Thank You, God, for these:
I was busy making a meal for a friend in need, and here come my kiddos with these gorgeous babies from our neighbors. WOW! Thanks for the special reminder that You are the Creator of all things beautiful!
And the week's not even over yet! :-D
I can't wait to see what the rest of the week holds...
Happy "Thank You Thursday" to you all! Until next week...Stay thankful!
