Cafe Chat

Hey my dear "Cafe" friends. Thank you for the continual encouragement that you give me and this community weekly.
Next Thursday is Thanksgiving (I am sure you already knew that though), and I won't be posting a "Cafe Chat" question on that day. I hope you will be enjoying Thanksgiving Day with the Lord, your family and friends. But, I could not let the opportunity go to ask you what you are thankful for this Thanksgiving.
Please list up to 5 things that you are thankful for... I encourage you to think a little deeper and come up with something that you are thankful for that you might not have thought of before.
Blessings and Happy Thanksgiving...
Kim

Blogger I am blessed! said...

1. The blessing of being able to be home with my kids so I can homeschool them. It's stressful at times, but so worth the effort. I love being in charge of what we spend the most time on, and I love learning right along side them.
2. My children are such a blessing to me. I'm so grateful for the little people they are becoming. My 10 and 8 year olds are really starting to show character, hopefully the others aren't far behind:)
3. My husband who is my best friend. We love to stay up late talking about theology or church history, whatever I've learned in Bible study, or whatever new homeschool method I'm interested in.
4. My parents are still such a blessing to me. My dad is still the one I lean on for all things financial and legal (it's a wonderful blessing to have a lawyer in the family:) My mom pays for and takes my two older kids to piano each week and usually lets some of the kids spend the night once each week. And my parents live in our neighborhood!
5. My Bible study friends. We've had a little ladie's group that has met in my home for the last 4 or 5 years. We've grown so much together and it's such a blessing to be around other women that love the Lord and are there to encourage me to keep on keeping on in the faith.

Thanks for the opportunity to count my blessings!

Hey Kim - I tried to ignor it but your question from last week just kept coming to the surface and I had to really dedicate some deep prayer to it! So today there are TWO cafe posts on my blog: http://laurelsheart.wordpress.com/

Thanks so much, you beautiful gem, for all you do! HUGE hugs from Canada

1. I am thankful for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I am thankful for God's Word. I am thankful for the sustaining grace of God.
2. I am thankful for my children, Emily age 30 and Eric age 28. I am thankful for my grandchildren, Katelyn age 4 and Drew 5 months.
3. I am thankful for Christian friends who support and love me through the roughest of times.
4. I am thankful for God's daily provisions of roof over my head, food to eat and clothes for my body.
5. As a lady living at the homeless shelter answered when I asked what she was thankful for, I too am thankful for "laughter."

I love pausing lately and really looking at being grateful.... so much. Sometimes, my vision is so blurred with day to day stuff and my own selfishness that I can't see the blessings around me. Right now,here are my 5. I also posted something I wrote this week.
1. I am thankful to be a child of God. Unconditional love and forgiveness. Enough said!
2. I am grateful for my family, that God chose me to be a mother to my children and for me to the be the child of my parents. What a gift.
3. I am grateful for my friends who have come into my life at various points in the journey.
4. I am thankful for coffee... Is that bad?
5. I am thankful for God's provision.

I finally had time to be still and let God speak to me on this topic and linked up to Mr Linky (better late than never!). Thanks for leading us once again to the feet of Jesus...and giving us a place to express what His sacrifice means to us.
