Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful:

--that I was able to restart my girls' class last night.  We are going through the book Secrets about Guys {that shouldn't be secret}, finding out what Godly guys are really looking for in a girl and how to see our beauty as God sees it.  I'm really enjoying my time with them.  Not only am I thankful for the opportunity to teach them, but I am beyond thankful for each of those girls.  I love them more than they'll ever know.

--that while I'm teaching the girls, my hubs is studying through communion with the guys.  I'm proud of him and thankful for his leadership.  And I love those boys more than they'll ever know too.

--that our Chorus got a GOLD at LTC this year!  That weekend is so much beyond the medals...but in my five years here, they have been trying SO hard to make that accomplishment.  They got it the first year as mixed chorus (meaning they had more young ones than old ones), but this was their first time to get it after moving up a bracket.  They worked hard, they worshipped, and they made a joyful noise of praise.  It was a fantastic feeling to be able to present that award to them this week.

--that this time next week, my bug and I will be on a plane to spend a long weekend in Branson with my sister!

--for this little cold snap.  I have no idea where it came from, but I'll take it.  I know pretty soon that our temps will be unbearable, so I'll take windy and 50 in April no problem.

--to be able to be a stay at home mama.

--for our garage sale this weekend to raise funds for our trip to Women of Faith in Dallas!  It's a great weekend, and I love that our group does fundraising to help offset the cost of the trip so that more ladies are able to go.

--for a messy kitchen and living room.  I may have just cleaned them today, but those messes means that my family ate dinner at home together and that my toddle tot has been playing her heart out tonight.

be grateful, give thanks.

love, angie


  1. Thanks so much for your sweet and encouraging comment, Angie! (I wanted to respond via email, but I don't think you've got an email linked for comments?) Love these thankfuls, particularly the last one! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Thank you! I'm so glad I was introduced to your blog for many reasons, but one of the ones high on the list is the idea of Thankful Thursday. I'm not always able to post regularly, but I don't miss those. I love the focus it brings to my week! So looking forward to sweet little Grace being here with you :)
