THANKFUL THURSDAY




I am excited about joining the new group of Thankful Thursday people. This is my second post!!

This week I am so thankful because today is my husband and my 43rd wedding anniversary!!! You know exactly what I am thankful for today!! I am so very thankful for a loving and caring husband that loves me enough to stay with me for these many years. We met at age 14; dated at age 16 and married at age 18...see why I am so thankful!! I have so many, many reasons to be so very very thankful
!!!

I am also thankful for my family! They are always there for me and what more can I ask but that!! My children have grown up to be great adults. They all love the Lord and attend church. I feel like I have done my best to be the best Mother that I can be. When I was a little girl that was all I ever wanted to be was a wife and a Mother!!

Last night at church we learned about Heaven and what it is going to be like. Boy what more can we Christians be any more THANKFUL for than knowing that ONE DAY we will all be in HEAVEN!!??? We learned that there are 582 references to Heaven in the Bible in 550 different verses. We, as Christians, all long for something. I believe that is Heaven. Heaven is going to be a wonderful place!! While we are here on this earth waiting for the NEW earth we need to do what C.S. Lewis said in his quote, " No man is ready to live life on earth until he is ready for life in heaven." If you want true happiness seek it where it can actually be found--in the person of Jesus and the place called Heaven!!

FLIP FLOP FLOOZIE FEELING PRETTY DOG GONE GOOD TODAY!!! SMILE!!!

I'm just stopping in from Terry's to wish you and your hubby a Very Happy Wedding Anniversary. My husband and I met in first grade and married at 18. We'll celebrate our 40th in June.
It's nice to meet you and I'll be back again. Stop in and say hi if you get a chance!

Happy Anniversary!! Yes, you do have lots to be thankful for. And I too am thankful for my loving family, and for my husband who is now in Heaven with our Lord. He brought me great joy and gave me unconditional love. And I feel very blessed to have had such an inspirational man to share my life with.

May you and your husband have many more years together to share your love and your joy for eachother. Hold on to those precious memories! That is what keeps me going without Charley. Beautiful memories that I can cherish forever. God bless you always. :)
