My Best Friend, Kim

There's just nothing like good friends. I am so thankful for this beautiful woman, Kim. She has been "there" for me for many years now. We have been through rough times, good times, fun times, family times, times together and times far apart. She is beautiful inside and out. She is a woman strong in her Christian faith, loving our Saviour with her whole heart. She has such a beautiful tender heart. She is a wonderful mom to her children and grandchildren, and a loving wife to a very blessed man. She is strong, gracious, wise, sweet, always ready to help, pray, or play. She is an example of the Proverbs 31 woman in a way very few women achieve. I am very blessed and priviliged to have her call me her friend. Thank you, Lord, for my beloved friend, Kim.

Thankful For My Home

I am so thankful to the Lord for my home. It is small, but adequate for all the things we need to live a quiet life. It sits on five acres of land in the Florida Panhandle "country", but very near our beautiful sugar white beach. I am so blessed and my heart hurts for so many people who have lost homes in these past months of bad economic times.

I also thank Him that both my husband and I are employed. Just ordinary jobs, not great salaries, but it is more than a lot of people have. It is enough to supply our needs and still be able to help others that need our help.

I also want to thank my hubby for working so hard on painting our bedroom and bathroom walls. He is so sweet in helping me with just whatever I get in my head to do. The man actually enjoys making me happy. How blessed can this girl be! I do not take that for granted. He is the love of my life.

What are you thankful for today?

A Thankful Heart

Today I am going to begin a log of just three things I am thankful for on a given day. This will by no means be a comprehensive list! But it will be a reminder to myself to stop and thank God for His blessings, mercy, grace and love. November is a month that, in a special way, reminds us to be thankful. So, on this first day of thanking God, I will begin with:

1. I am thankful for the cooler days that November is bringing to the Gulf Coast. It has been a long and hot summer.

2. I am thankful for my husband. Through some very discouraging days this past year, he has been such an encouragement and support. He not only tells me how much he loves me, but he has shown me in many tangible ways.

3. I am thankful for God "re-newing" a call for a very special work that I am to do.
