Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful for bright sunshine this afternoon. Its only 17 frigid degrees out there and the forecasted low for tonight is -6 degrees Fahrenheit but sunshine right now makes up for a lot of those missing degrees.

So does Bible study with Kim and Carol. I am thankful for the encouragement around the table in refocusing our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Wow! Overwhelmingly thankful to our most gracious Savior!

What are you thanking our God for this day?

We've had a couple of 40 degree days--really nice. Seems it's been a colder winter than usual. There too?

Yes, here too, Rosemary.

Only 17 degrees! Yes, the sunshine is most welcome. :) I'm thanking God today for encouragement given across the miles from blessings like you, Dorothy! And, I'm thankful for good health as we've had a round of sickness working its way through the house. Hugs!

Stay warm! We won't get out of the 30's which is cold for us.

Refocusing our eyes on Jesus is definitely something to be thankful for!
