Thankful Thursday

This has been a rough week but I'm pretty sure I can come up with some stuff I'm thankful for....let's see....

I'm thankful that it did not rain today. (Ok, maybe I should get my priorities straight)

I'm thankful that God has blessed me with a healthy family.

I'm thankful for my church family, they are becoming more and more special to me everyday!

I'm thankful for my Bible study group, I can have a mini-breakdown and they don't think I'm psycho. (Ya'll don't do you?)

I'm thankful to have a husband who will clean, give the kids a bath, and clean my car out from time to time (I do let him gripe at me when he has to do this, it's only fair when he has to dig out 2 bags of garbage out of it.)

I'm thankful for fall. I just LOVE fall. I love the leaves falling and the wind blowing through my hair (on my legs). Yes, it's also time for pants.

Yesterday I had a driving route and every now and then I would get this feeling that someone was looking at me. Usually its someone sitting on their porch waiting on me to bring their electric bill (yes, people. There are people out there who KNOW when their bills are supposed to delivered.) and I will usually wave. Well yesterday when I thought someone was looking at me I went to throw my hand up and it wasn't anyone eager for their bills. It was a scarecrow. Yep, ya know the decorations people put in there yard complete with hay bales? What's even crazier is that it happened more than once! HA! So here I am driving along, waving at scarecrows. I think I need a day off.

Most of all though, I'm thankful that Jesus came and died for my sins. (He did this for you too!) Without Him I am nothing! Until Sunday's message at church I thought believing was enough, but we must also confess that Jesus is Lord. I don't talk about Him enough in passing conversation and I should be shouting from the mountain tops!!!

ROFL...waving at scarecrows! That's hilarious...and I agree, perhaps you do need a day off.

Our old neighbors do this thing year after year, where the big tall husband puts on a scarecrow costume, and sits on their porch bench, and when trick-or-treaters come up the walk, he jumps up at them. Likes to scare the life out of em, but it's hilarious.

Love your "Don't Mess with Me, I'm DISGRUNTLED" picture over there, lol. Reminds me of another similar shirt where there is this 1950's white dude saying, "I'm pretty gangstuh myself" and flashing gang signs.

I think you do need a day off! I can see you waving at the scarecrows now. LOL!

I love Fall to! My favorite time of the year! It also means football is on! Well, every team has showed up to play but the VOLS but I love it anyway!

Have a great Saturday!

Brooke, if you are phsycho, so are the rest of our Bible study group. We were all crying right along beside you. When you said "how can you love someone so much and dislike them so much at the same time", that hit me like a ton of bricks. That sums up a family relationship I am struggling with now and have been my whole life. I am praying for you and your situation and would love for you to do the same. Satan has attacked me with this for 33 years and I have recently made the decision that I will give this to GOD completely and do my best to do my part. The last thing I want to do is have regrets.

By the way, I am there with you on the "its time for pants" comment also.
