Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

It is time for Thankful Thursday and linking up with Sonya over at Truth 4 the Journey. I want to thank Sonya for hosting Thankful Thursday and giving all of us the opportunity to list our thankfuls for the week.

How about zipping over to Sonya's site, linking up and listing your thankfuls as well.

Here are my 5 thankfuls for this week.....

1) I am thankful to still have a child to homeschool this year. Yes, I am having a hard time letting go and so still having DS to teach is a great reason to be thankful!!!

2) I am thankful for great bargains at the grocery store. DH and I are trying so hard to become debt free (thanks Dave!!!) and this budget thing isn't always easy!!!

3) I am thankful that my Mom and Dad were able to come over and celebrate my birthday with me!! Their health is not the best and so time spent with them is a great reason to be thankful!

4) I am thankful for a hubby that is obedient to listen to and obey God's calling, even when it takes him out of his comfort zone.

5) I am thankful that even though DD has gotten chastised by the Holy Spirit this week, she is obedient enough to Him to confess and admit she ran ahead of Him and got in His way---and then do an about face and allow Him to straighten out her mess.

I am glad of grocery bargains too! I am always looking of ways to cut the shopping bill.

We all run ahead from time to time. If we are lucky we stay on the right path. Is that Dave Ramsey you spoke of? Are you taking baby steps? :)
Great list Deb.

We have 'enjoyed' working through Financial Peace University as well. Praise God for the blessings birthdays and your children bring. :)

Those are truly some great praises! Let's ALL give a cheer for grocery bargains; they have been a real blessing lately! (have you ever gone to couponmom.com? It's a really good website for saving...). And I'm glad you still have one at home with you, too. God's timing is so perfect, isn't it? Praises that DD can hear His voice and be obedient, too.. that is HUGE!
big hugs....

Don't you love to find a bargain at the grocery store? It turns the trip into a time of victory instead of drudgery.
Giving thanks with you ~ Lisa
