Thankful Thursday

Its a frigidly cold day here in Crystal Lake, IL but the sunshine just streamed into my kitchen window this morning and for that I am thankful...even though it revealed a couple of cobwebs I'd missed. Or maybe that's another reason to be thankful.

Actually, its a cold week here and so I am thankful for the heater in the Honda Ridgeline. We've never had a vehicle that got warm inside as fast as this one does!

And I'm thankful for my sweet little dog, Charlie, who warms...uh, I mean, sleeps on my side of the bed.

I'm also thankful for a receiving a letter this week from an old friend in New York. It warmed my heart to hear from her.

But what warms my soul is the Word of God. I am so very thankful for the many opportunities for rich study of His Word that God has given me.

Every word of God is flawless;
he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
~Proverbs 30:5

Each Thursday of this year, I am joining Kim of the Upward Call and many others in sharing my thankfulness to God.

Oh, the soul-warming and soul-cleansing flawless Word of God!

Frigid here, too. My poor kitty wants to be outside, but when he gets out there, he isn't very happy.

This is my first visit to Field Stone Cottage. I came here from Lisa Writes and I'm so thankful to have taken a peek. So refreshing to see you lift up God's Word. His Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path! Have a great day!
Oh, and I'd LOVE to visit the tearoom you described!

I've been checking IL weather every day! Wow your temperatures are frigid!

Your post makes me smile. :-) Especially the letter from a friend. Isn't it so special to get a real letter these days? Hope you have a great week ahead.
