Thankful Thursday

Linking with awesome Cami at Thankful Thursday


"Write in your heart that every day is the best day of the year" Ralph Waldo Emerson

Boy it's been hot!!! Super hot. And it's only June. But, even though it's hard to be outside too long....I'm grateful...especially for....

-A/C.  The temps have hit record highs....even the kids won't go out and play....I'm totally grateful to the guy who invented a/c.
-Time.... There's a positive upside to the heat....I've hung out in the house and had mounds of time to finish writing one of my novels. Only 25 or so more pages to go....then done!
-Artistic Friends - spent hours with a good buddy brainstorming - excited....passionate...The time just flew. Love that
-Summer....so many neat things to look forward to....my dgt's been making a list....getting us all hyped and excited....
-Faith...it's that one constant...and the filter that helps me see everything in my life is as it should be....no fears....no worries.....He's there....always.....and when the tough stuff hits....He's always got back up plans.....

Oh, I would love to dive in a pool with ice, too on triple digit days...So far, it's okay where we are. But still early to tell...

That's great that you're moving forward to finishing another book. I pray God will bless this and open doors of opportunity for you for His glory.

That's one thing I love about summer. I have an excuse to buy some "ice cream" :)

Take care sister and God bless.

It's been super hot here, too. Miserably hot. EW. I am thankful for a/c as well. Let us soak it up <3

I am thankful that you have artistic friends you can spend hours with! Woohoo

May God bless you and yours greatly today <3

Thank you for linking up to First Day of My Life's Thankful Thursday!

WoW! We have heavy rain at the moment. Got soaked coming in from work. It's been much colder in Scotland for the time of year too. Not to worry... it helps the plants grow and the grass looks nice and lush. We've strong winds forecast for later this evening - being honest, I'm not looking forward to that however

Love the photo Sarah! It's ultra cute!

I had never really thought of faith as a filter, but yes it is! It helps keep doubt and fear out. It does help us see everything in our life as it should be - faith really is a way of seeing.

Congratulations on your new book.

Loved the doggy pic!

Love
Lidia

"When the tough stuff hits- He always has backup plans."

I love that part the best of all. That's a constant thought that has gotten me through some of that very tough stuff.

I am grateful for the invention of a/c!! it has been Hot.

I love that photo, I have seen it a few times and it cracks me up!
Way to go on the writing. I so agree with you on the Faith. I don't know how I survived before I really got it. Well actually I do know how I survived before because He was always at my side. Have a wonderful weekend.

I haven't heard from you in awhile, glad you're O.K. Love the picture! Yes, it has been really hot here, too! SO thankful for air conditioning both in the house and in the car.
