Thankful Thursday--Protection



Psalm 5:11:
But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

This week I'm thankful for protection and provision.

Thanks for protection from the tornadoes and thunderstorms.
Thanks for Your protection, as we hiked on trails immediately after a storm.
Thanks for protecting this pregnancy.
Thanks that you will provide a substitute for me at work, so I can actually take a maternity leave (unlike the two weeks I took with both previous kids).
Thanks that you are working out where we can have this baby--if not here, at the place you want us to.
Thanks for the opportunity to share our house with another family--Henry has been so blessed by playing with their boys!
Thanks that Harmony is loving her dance class--help her to still love the idea of being on stage when she's on it next week.

Thanks for Iris and all the other praises raised through Thankful Thursday!

I so agree about the protection from tornadoes. They are so scary and you never know where they'll hit. Take time off work!

How neat to share your home with another family... and that your kids get along well is certainly a gift from God. Hope your pregnancy continues to go smoothly. Happy TT!

I am so glad to read the your pregnancy is going well. Wow - two weeks maternity leave is indeed not much - I do hope that God will provide a good substitute so you may have a little more time with your next baby.

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

Be blessed today and always...
