~Thankful Thursday~Random~



Psalms 121:1

*I'm thankful I can lift my eyes up any time of the day or night and our Lord is waiting for me to approach His throne.
*I'm thankful for parents that cared enough about me and my two sisters to teach us early on about God and to take us to church.
*I'm thankful that although I miss my Dad here on earth, I KNOW he will be there to greet us when we get to heaven.
*I'm thankful for family who cares and though times are really hard right now with a sister fighting an aggressive cancer, but also cancer within our extended family as well. We serve a very BIG GOD and nothing is too big for Him.
*I'm thankful for my close friends who are there during the good and the bad times.
*I'm thankful for the seasons and that spring is here.
*Lastly, I'm thankful for my Rippee. We're finally making through the healing process of his surgeries succesfully!! And, I'll leave you with a picture of Ripley taken today.

HAVE A THANKFUL THURSDAY!

Thankful Thursday is hosted by Iris at Sting My Heart.

I so agree -nothing is too big for God. Not disease. Not evil. Nothing.

I hope everyone in the family is coping well with what your sister is going through. I pray for strength for everyone especially to your sister.

Way to go Cheryl...Ripley looks ready and raring to play! I'm so glad! I pray that you and your family will be able to continue to fight the good fight and keep your eyes lifted up to the Problem solver, Jesus, our Healer, our Peace...I pray you will be strengthened in the JOY of the Lord through this GREAT battle.
I'm so thankful you have those kind of friends, parents, and sisters, too! Daddy's pleased!
Hold on and keep believing! We ALL can have results like Ripley!!!
Be blessed...Peggy

Wow, you have some hard things going on in your family. I am sorry. I love how you focused on all the relationships you have to be thankful for.

Thanks for stopping by and weighing in on my blog about community.

Enjoy your weekend.

I, too, had parents that taught me about Jesus at a young age and raised us in a Christian home. It probably made all the difference in the world for me.

I am so thrilled that the surgery of your little Ripley was successful.
I too miss my dad here on earth, but what a celebration it will be to be reunited with our earthly fathers :)

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us.

Blessings to you and yours...
