Thankful Thursday

"It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to Your name,
O most High; To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning, and Your faithfulness every night." ~Psalm 92:1-2

This week I am thankful for:

~Emily! She has been such a trooper using the potty. We didn't quite have the hang of it at first, and she put up with all our short comings as parents and never gave up. Once we got a good routine in, she took to the potty with ease.

~My unborn child. She is moving ALL over the place and it is so re-assuring to feel her kicks all day long. I am also so thankful to be moving on to the third trimester! 3 months to go!

~Prayer! I am currently reading "Becoming a Woman of Prayer" by Elizabeth George in an effort to boost my prayer life. I am learning SO much, and I am so thankful that we have direct access to the Father! I am slowly learning to let go of things that I think are mine to control and hand them over to the Lord in prayer.

~Our health. Emily and I seem to FINALLY be over our colds that have plagued us for the month of August. It's nice to be breathing through my nose again and not coughing all day long!

~My husband's job. He works 7-4 most days, and rarely on weekends. We are so blessed that he is able to be home with us every evening and on weekends!

Hurray that Emily is using her potty! All of us mothers can relate to the joy and thankfulness this brings. And, how exciting to hear about your little one growing, kicking, and moving. Yes, children are a heritage from the Lord.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful thankful list!

I am thankful for your list, Amy and I agree 100% with you. I am also thankful for your strength and perserverance as you raise up Emily for the lord, and carry a little sister as well. You are an amazing mom, wife and daughter. Loveya, Mom

I struggle daily also with my despair over potty training my daughter, but I think our trials this week have shown us the light and we may be near the end, with God's mercy.
God bless you

Glad Emily is doing better on the potty. That is a major milestone! It's good your wanting to increase your prayer life. God will meet you as you come to Him. Blessings on your weekend.

Yeah for Emily. That is such a great milestone for her and you!! I am going thorough this trial of potty training right now, I wish I was at home with her during the day to keep the consistency going. But In Jesus Name , we will cross this milestone soon. I appreciated your thankful list, children are such a blessing!

How awesome that you are doing so well with your pregnancy. Great that that you little unborn is so active :)
Having a cold during the summer is really annoying. My hubby and our son had a cold this pasts month too.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week

Be blessed today and always.
