Thankful Thursday

My Bible memory verse this week is Numbers 23:19:

God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?

Wow. That's amazing. I am so glad that God does not change his mind, is true to His word, and keeps his promises. That would definitely be the difference between God and man!

This week I am thankful for:
--incredible growth in our Children's Church. I pray for more teachers, so that we can divide the "older kids" (5-10) group into 5-7 and 8-10.
--My wonderful children, and who they are becoming in Christ.
--Fresh summer foods--can't beat blackberries and peas straight from the garden!
--My parents' 40th wedding anniversary
--A flexible work schedule, especially during the summer (though it's not as "off" as everyone expects)
--Our great vacation to Mexico
--Being home and seeing friends again!

For more thankfulness, please visit Iris...or post your own!

Oh, vacation in Mexico - awesome. I love it there :)
Fresh foods are so yummy - especially if the come from your own garden.
I too am thankful that the Lord is not changing and is true to His Word.

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

Blessings to you and yours...
