Thankful Thursday

Thankfulness to God for my daughter, Emily, is what's on my mind and in my heart today. She's a kind and loving daughter to us, always willing to help where needed and in whatever way she can. And when it comes time to relax together, she's lots of fun too.

Tomorrow is Emily's birthday and over the weekend we'll be celebrating with a special meal and cheesecake, which is her birthday cake of choice. So its my privilege to thank God for Emily, to thank Him for giving her to us and to thank Him for the faith that He's given to her and the way that He continues to grow her in that faith.

Each Thursday of 2010, I'm joining with Kim of The Upward Call and several other friends in thanking God for His good gifts to us. Shared thanksgiving is a special blessing! Won't you join us?

Happy Birthday, Emily!
