Thankful Thursday


Sonya-Lee - thank you for this opportunity to share what I'm grateful for this week. Anyone wanting to participate post 5 a gratitude list of five things and let Sonya know @    http://truth4thejourney.blogspot.com 

I have always been afraid to get too close to others - afraid I would get hurt in some way  -  Today I'm really grateful for: people who are in my life:

1. this awesome blogging community - you guys are some of the best people on the planet.
2. the writing support group that I've become a part of as of last night - their feedback was great and being a part of others who share the love of writing is awesome.
3. some amazing friends who make my heart sing - 
4. the tight relationship I have with my kids who are two of my favorite people in the world
5. my sister who has become a friend and who I can share my heart with more and more.

Ok this is 6th but really the most important - for God never giving up on me - for His gentleness and patience - for breaking the addictions in my life - for helping me to stop fighting - for showing me a different way to live and giving me purpose. Because of Him......

Your comment on #6, to stop fighting, wow, isn't that so God. That when we stop fighting about the way in which we should go, then that perfect peace that can only come from Him, over flows onto us and through us, and out of us? Great thanksgivings!!!

So glad that you have a great relationship with your children.

My kids are my life, too.

Think I'm a little jealous of your writing support group though.

Just a tiny bit.

Sweet dreams.

Hi Sarah-
Oh I love your story. So powerful and so courageous of you to share it. I imagine you have no idea how many people you will help heal. God I am sure is grateful you trusted Him to provide for you.
