Thankful Thursday

Linking up with Dayle at Simple Pleasures

"To be at one with God is to be at peace"  Ralph Waldo Trine. 

Its been a wild week.....programs restarting, new ones happening, setting goals....just a whirlwind of excitement.  I love Autumn...especially the month of Sept. It hold so many new hopes.....new starts...new beginnings of amazing things to come. Simple pleasure...beginnings and feeling life is the way it's supposed to be...So grateful this week for:

-Amazing friendships. Went for a 2 hour walk with some good friends. We talked so much the time flew by.
-Another family and ours have been swapping things back and forth...things one of us doesn't need anymore but the other does. It's nice to recycle with buddies.....
-sold five more books today. Sometimes I think my book has run its course and then...whomp...another purchase. 
-Books. I just finished reading Sarah's Key. It's a phenomenal read and a book I couldn't put down. I was over at a friend's place who didn't know I had read the book. She said she heard about a good movie that just came out and asked if I wanted to see it.  Yep....it's Sarah's Key. We're going tomorrow.
-Peace...it still amazes me that He's given me this incredible  peace inside....a peace that's like nothing I get from anything else.....peace...it's always there.....reassuring and comforting....no matter.......a gift that's forever.

Our local Christian radio station encouraged us to pick a word for the year, I picked "Peace". I have been enjoying collecting quotes and scripture that refers to the great gift God gave us. So glad you feel His peace too!

The is the peace that passes all understanding - I'm so glad He freely gives it to all those that accept Him.

I love Autumn and beginnings too. Have a wonderful week!

"Peace . . . peace . . . wonderful peace, coming down from the Father above. Sweep over my spirit forever I pray, in fathomless billows of love." Your words remind me of this beloved old hymn. His peace is priceless!

There is nothing better than to be loved by Him. He loves us with an unbounded love. "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid." John 14:27. (ESV)
As always I love your gratitude list!
