Thankful Thursday


I love thankful Thursdays, it is so great to count our blessings. Thank you dear Iris for hosting.Here are some things that I am thankful for this week: 1)Answered prayer, my husband gets to be by my side, when I have my eye surgery, thank You Lord. 2)I am thankful that yesterday, when I could not see at all for almost an hour, I was not afraid, nor alone. God was with me, leading my every step. 3) I am thankful for a compassionate christian eye surgeon, I am going to feel safe being operated on by him. 4)I am thankful that God is opening up the eyes of my heart more and more daily. 5) I am thankful for all the beauty in this world, it is all around us. 6) I am thankful for the beautiful friends that God has blessed me with through my blog:Angel,Jen,Terri,Connie,Sandy,Debbie, Anita,Sara,Sharon,Sharon,Lisa,Deena, and the list goes on and on. I love you all, you make my heart smile. 7)Hugs, I love giving them away, and getting them. 8)Hearts that are filled with love. 9) Stealing sweet kisses from my husband. 10)You precious friend, for visiting my blog.

I am so happy that Eddie is able to get off on your rescheduled eye-surgery. How neat that you were not afraid when you could not see--I think I would have been scarred (just a little though)...
Blogging has become a wonderful tool on the internet for Christian women to connect with each other.

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

Be blessed today and always.

Denise having Eddie off is an answer to prayers. Praise God . I so wish I could be there to visit in person though we probably would get in some trouble for food fights or something. You are so special to me thanks for being such a good friend. Love and Hugs to you my friend.

In his endless love,

I gather from this entry that you haven't had the surgery? If so, I wish you well. I'm sure He will take good care of you! If I interpreted it wrongly, and you have had it, I hope you are doing much better after your surgery. Either way, it is wonderful that you are thankful in the middle of something that might have been scary. Bless!

You are such a sweetie.
I am so glad you found a good doctor to take care of your eyes. My FIL has macular degenerative eye disease (s.p)--he is mostly blind.
Thank God He has sent someone to help you.

You may not have clear vision in your body, dear friend...but God has given you spiritual eyes that see the important things.

Thank you for this great list of gratitude. On a day when it is difficult to naturally find thankfulness, I have found such comfort and gratitude for unknown bloggers offering prayer support for another unknown blogger. Still, we are part of the family of God--and I am so thankful for your part in extending comfort and prayer support to another who is in need.

Blessings!
