Thankful Thursday

My heart is full but my list is short and my arms feel empty--this week I'm thankful for:

--new life all around me. Somehow I expected when I had miscarriages, births on the planet would stop, but I'm glad God keeps blessing people with the miracle of babies--four new pregnancies announced/discovered in the last three weeks.

--Having a washer and dryer at my house. A couple of Sundays ago we stopped by the local gas station/laundromat to get a paper and warm up from a long walk. It brought back memories of having to haul our laundry somewhere, and especially now with kids, it made me sooo glad to have our own!

--That God loved us when we were unlovable--what an amazing thing to celebrate this Valentine's Day.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Blessings to you and your family today.

Loved those precious Valentine's, how cute!

I would say "Amen" to the W/D, too! We've been through 3-4 periods where we didn't have a functional washing machine and lugging the clothes and kids to the launrdromat and returning reeking of smoke and detergent was not pleasant.

Take those little ones God has given you and let them fill up your empty arms today.

And I'm with you on the washer and dryer. What a blessing that we often overlook. I remember carting a baby around in laundry baskets while transporting loads. Crazy.

Heather said...

Sometimes it's the little things that we can be the most thankful for. In addition to my w/d, I am thankful for a crockpot and a dishwasher.

Praying for you, my friend!

A wonderful theme for today!

I'm thankful for my dyer. The washing machine broke when a water pipe froze, but I still have a dryer. I hope the Lord continues to give you many things to be thankful for.

Great list!
I have had to go to a laundromat at times too so I agree with you about that one. We have so many things that make life conveinent for us.
Bless you,

I am so glad that you have your own washer/dryer. You know - sometimes we take some things for granted to have - I know I do...
I am still some days unlovable, but I can be sure that our Heavenly Father still loves me.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this past week.

Blessings to you and yours.
