Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful for a bit of sunshine this afternoon in which to take Charlie for a short walk. It was a short one because the temperature was only 38 degrees F. and there was a little breeze to make it feel even cooler. Charlie is 15 now and old guys get cold in that kind of weather. But it was nice to get out in the fresh air for a quick trip around the block.

I'm even more thankful for this exhilarating reminder from our Hebrews passage for this week:

You have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.~Hebrews 12:22-24

I'm joining with Kim of The Upward Call and many others in posting my thanksgiving to God each Thursday of 2011. Here's your invitation to join in!

Exhilarating, indeed. I try to imagine, but can't.

I'm lovin' warmer weather too. So ready for Spring.

Wonderful passage from Hebrews.

Glad you could enjoy some sunshine today.

Our Sally loves to follow her nose out in the cool weather, but her arthritis makes her pay for it later.

I'm also looking forward to spring.

"exhilarating reminder" Yes, Dorothy, it is!

How precious that your sweet dog is 15. I'm glad you were able to enjoy a brief walk together. We're finally seeing some spring-like weather here, and the children played outside for over 4 hours yesterday.

Love and hugs!
