I can't believe it's been three weeks since my last Thankful Thursday post. I have been enjoying myself so much being back in Corpus, but I don't want to forget to take time to give thanks for all the blessings that God has given me.
* I'm thankful we were able to find a rent house for the nine months until the lease is up on OUR home. It is small, but just perfect for our family.
*I'm thankful that Skip has found such joy in his new job, and is making some wonderful friendships.
*I'm thankful to God for holding my family and I up over the last year when so many times we were about to fall apart.
*I'm thankful that my ninety-two year old Popie is still fighting the fight. He has been in the hospital for so long now, but he continues to hang in there. My daddy and step-mom have truly shown me what true sacrifice looks like as they care for my Nonie so unselfishly. Their lives have been on hold for about 2 months, and all they do is continue to trust God for strength and endurance.
*I'm thankful that my sweet niece Stephanie, who is due with her first baby in less than a month, is doing so well.
*I'm thankful that God has given me will power over the last two weeks to eat better and take care of myself. Food was definitely my comfort this past year.
*I'm thankful that God has a plan for all of us, and when we walk in obedience, he is faithful to guide and direct our paths.
