Thankful Thursday - the mercies of God

First, and always I am thankful for Jesus Christ, His grace and mercy and goodness to me and my loved ones. He truly is awesome Savior.

I am thankful for the prayers that were sent heavenward upon my behalf after my accident last week. Brothers and Sisters in my home church, fellow bloggers and friends. I honestly believe that it was through these prayers that it went as well as it did! God Has a reason and a plan for this, although He has yet to share it with me.

The international students at my work - they have been so kind to me, each class sent me flowers (we have 2 classes), emails and phone calls to check on me. I was astounded at the care they have shown to me -- so many have stopped by my desk to check in with me. One class graduates in a month and they head home across the seas -- they will be sorely missed. They were my first class and I have gotten to know so many. Its going to be so hard to see them go. One reason I went back to work so quickly was so I would have more days with them -- our officer from Rwanda sent me an email about my vacant seat and that they were leaving soon and just could not have that! When its not such a struggle to type, I will share more about them all.

My new elbow -- scares me a little -- all that metal inside my body. Its time like these where the trust in God has to step in. Fear will drive us mad.

My husband and boys have been a big help to me, I hate being a burden but its nice to know I have help when I need it.

I am thankful God saved me from flat on the highway yesterday. I noticed before I left home and Stephen was able to help me get air in it. My hub had to get two new tires on it today.

I am thankful for our health, our Pastor and his wife; the word of God that speaks to my heart and soul and causes me to change my thinking; family and friends who will pray for me; being able to meet all our bills, and actually have a little indulgence once in a while.
