So tell me, what are you thankful for today? Just tell me one thing in the comments section--I'd love to hear from you!

Linking up with Ann today. Go to her blog, A Holy Experience, for more lists of gratitude.



  1. Looks like Ann’s linky may not go up today – so I thought – where can I go to get some thankfuls – and I came here ƪ(◠‿◠)╯

    And my favorite one you your list today was: 126. Talking through really important stuff with junior high girls each week.- because it’s such important stuff you’re doing. These girls need someone to share with and learn from. You are doing God’s love. Yay!!!! {smile}

    May God Bless and Keep you and make his to face shine upon you and yours.

  2. The wonderful week I had with my family all in the nest for Spring Break. We're all back in our places now, but it was a good week.

  3. Well, Craig, aren't you the encouragement today??!! Thank you so much!

    Kay, I am so glad you had a good time with your kids last week. Those times are so special and will soon become more and more scarce, so I'm glad you had them to yourself.

  4. Hi Shelley,

    I heard about your blog from Glenda's, and could hardly believe your kindness and love. What a hero you are!!

    Anway, I've had a little snoop around your blog and see that it's every bit as lovely as I hoped. I'm your new follower.


  5. 123 and 124 = awesome!


  6. You are such a brave warrior taking on a group of junior high girls. And what a ministry! In this day and age, good, Godly role models are needed more than anything. The problems are so much deeper and more intense than what we thought were "biggies" when I was a youngster. I thank the Lord for people like you! Your list was such a blessing -- I'm glad I stopped by!
