Spring Thankfulness

Friday April 6, 2012

I just love this Friday exercise! Last week didn’t lend itself to posting, but I still made a mental list, and I looked forward to coming back this Friday.

Would you like to join in? Just click on over to Living to Tell the Story. We’d love to have you.

Lots to be thankful for this week. A risen Saviour who lives and loves and intercedes for us? What more could we desire?!

I'm thankful for these added blessings:

1. An encouraging doctor appointment. Our son Andrew has passed the three month mark since his accident. His visit to the orthopedist showed progress, and we’re all so thankful. Lots of work ahead, but my goodness how far he has come in three months!

2. University of Kentucky Wildcats! Yes, they won it all. I wore my blue in their honor on Wednesday.

3. Seeing my boy onstage—and just seeing him, in general. I had a weekend away last weekend, while Dad took nursing duty. Our youngest was in Thoroughly Modern Millie at Asbury University, and I got to see him. It was great to spend a little time with him and I loved seeing him sing and dance!

4. Seeing Aiden—and his parents. That same trip offered an opportunity to see my grandson Aiden, and I jumped at the chance. He’s such a busy boy! He’s 18 months old now and loves cars and running and climbing steps, and peekaboo just cracks him up. Sweet, sweet boy.

5. A quote.

“God sows His saints by His whirlwind. Let God fling you out, and do not go until He does. If you select your own spot, you will prove an empty pod. If God sows you, you will bring forth fruit.” (Oswald Chambers)

Three months ago I had some plans, then the whirlwind hit. This quote reminds me to wait on Him; He knows what He’s doing, far better than I do.

Hope this finds you enjoying spring and reveling in the resurrection.

Yea for Kentucky! They were my pick too. Glad you got to see your boy sing and dance. How fun. And Aiden. :-) I'm sure that is fun beyond words. He's really getting big.

Glad to hear the 3 month check was good! And nice of your Dad to take on the nursing duty so that you were able to attend the play. What a blessing.

Aiden is growing so quickly. He's getting that toddler look about him. Too cute.

Happy Easter, Laura!

Congratulations on the Kentucky win! We saw the game and it was quite exciting.

Great news about your son, I hope the news and check ups continue to be good.

Happy Easter!

Love Oswald Chambers. Such a great quote, I need to write that one down!

I'm glad to hear that your son is doing so well. Have a happy Easter, Laura. I really enjoy your FFF, always so uplifting.

"Let God fling you out."

Wow. Those words both frighten and excite me. That Oswald, he sure knows how to bring it!
