DaDoo Dod!

Lena has two books entitled "Thank you, God!" Now that she is at the ripe age of 15 months, (where did the time go?) she is able to ask for her books by title.

I would like to offer my own thanks to God for all of His tender mercies to our family.

I thank you Lord, for a happy daughter who bounced back from a trying experience ...

And I pray that she will learn to love you.

I thank you for a husband who works hard, even to the point of overdoing it and getting sick. I thank you for his job Lord, for we can't take these things for granted...

...And I pray that he will be a bright light for you.

I thank you for our home ...
... and I pray that we will use it for your glory.

I thank you for your Word, and for other great books ...
... and I pray that we will guard our eyes and our hearts.

I thank you that my daughter has two sets of Christian grandparents ...
... and I pray that you would bless them for all they have done for us.

I thank you Lord, for adoption, for without it, where would I or my sister be?
... And I pray for those loving people who are willing to open their homes to a needy child.

I thank you for a church that teaches your Word ...
... and I pray that we will be able to be a blessing to your saints.

Thank you Lord for a full freezer and refrigerator and a stove to make wonderful meals ...
... and may we always share what we have.

I thank you Lord for our dear friends ...
... may these bonds become stronger.

These are just a few things that the Lord has blessed us with lately. As we enter the weekend, especially with the holiday rush in full swing, may we remember to stop and be thankful. Without Him, we would be nothing and would have nothing. Have a wonderful weekend!

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

The things you thanked God for brought tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat. How many times have I thanked God for the very same things.

You little one is just getting so smart and more wonderful by the day. She will learn to love the Lord with all her heart, she has too many great examples before her eyes and ears. connie from Texas

It is always good to give thanks. I like it that you accompanied each one with a prayer. I like this post and I like Lena's picture. I'm overdue to have her grace my blog page.

Btw, I'm thankful that I am typing this on my laptop and I pray that the Lord will not have me stress over such a small matter as I hear about so many who are going through such trials.
