Thanks-giving Thursday

From now on I'm dedicating Thursdays to an attitude of gratitude. Next Thursday I will share a more in depth post on gratefulness...and share some things that I am grateful for. I'd love to hear what you're thankful for as well so put your gratitude thinking cap on this week.

"...let the Holy Spirit fill and control you. Then you will sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, making music to the Lord in your hearts. And you will always give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Ephesians 18b-20

Today I am thankful for:

THE BIG OL' BLOGGY WORLD that we're each a part of. :) What a blessing and encouragement it is to connect with other Christian bloggy sisters! I am often encouraged as I read other blogs and enjoy having the outlet to share some of my own thoughts as I journey through life. Isn't it so reassuring and freeing to know that we are not alone in our struggles, trials and searchings? Isn't it reassuring to see how God works in the lives of others? It is for me...and I am thankful!

That being said, one of my favorite bloggers is Renee Swope. If you haven't already done so, will you hop on over to Renee Swope's blog and complete her mini- survey. She's trying to get over 500 women to complete this short, 6 questions survey to help her determine the focus of the chapters of her new book about overcoming doubt. As a thank you she's giving away 4 autographed copies of Who Holds the Key to Your Heart? by Lysa TerKeurst. She's announcing the winners on Monday so go check it out!

I can hardly wait to read her new book! The more I read about it, the more excited I am about the book. I'm also excited that I'm going to get to meet Renee and hear her speak at the Rise & Shine Women's Retreat this fall!

I hope to post again before Thursday, but things are a little crazy around here lately. I get to help "pick rock" this afternoon. Don't know what that is? Lucky you. :) No, it's really not that bad. I'll tell you more about it in a future post. :)

May the Lord bless you and keep you today!
