Thankful Thursday -- All things!
First and always, I am thankful for the Lord -- His supreme sacrifice for me and others. He's an awesome God, and I'm thankful He chose to draw me to Him.

Yesterday afternoon was a pretty rough afternoon, and my faith was pretty low -- our poor horse! She's such a good girl. You can read the story here. But after service last night -- I am believing the Lord for her complete recovery. I have to -- my trust is in the Lord.

We had a visiting minister instead of Bible Study last night -- he has a healing ministry -- How like God? -- I realize that its only a horse and things could be far worse in other areas of our lives -- I think it was just everything -- especially stating what should have been done when she was first injured. We had a different vet come out last night -- this is who we wanted originally, but one of her fill in vets came out last week. So -- it was an awesome service and I am thankful for that.

I'm thankful that my husband's foot is healing. (It was pretty ugly looking Tuesday afternoon at the doctors!) It looked better last night when I re-wrapped it.

I'm thankful my son Josh has been a huge help with chores this week, even though he carries a full load with school and his job.

I'm thankful for the tulips (and sub!) my daughter Sarai gave me -- I love tulips!

And the roses Josh gave me late Sunday night -- I told him to save his money, he said No, this makes him happy cause it makes me happy.

I'm thankful for a little girl who was so tired last night she fell asleep in my arms -- I think I needed that human touch -- and it actually comforted my soul and spirit.

I'm thankful that the vet knows someone who might be interested in Rowdy -- and it would be a great new home.

After my post last night -- the vet was going over the other bill. We had not received it in the mail yet. I think I might have had a coronary had it showed up! She said that there were ALOT of over charges -- because the fill in vet didn't know the prices. The bill was $290 for last week. Gasp! She gave a bunch of credit -- and after last night the total was $367.50. God is awesome! And she let us pay 1/2 now and 1/2 in a month. This is not too common in today's world. I asked her if I could pay half in 2 weeks -- and she said you can even pay it in a month. Wow! I am believing God for the funds for this!

I'm thankful I am feeling so much better today and I woke early enough to spend time with the Lord.

I'm thankful for my husband and my kids who put up with all my drama sometimes! Hey, I have to put up with theirs! {grin}

And as always, I am thankful for this community of bloggers who are an encouragement to me.
