Thankful Thursday-Joy


Another Thankful Thursday is here, and my heart is very thankful today. I am thankful for the joy that lives within me, that was put there by my precious Saviour. I am thankful for the joy I feel everyday when my husband walks in the day from work, I am so glad to see him. I am thankful for the joy I feel as I talk to my sister on the phone, and we laugh like sisters do. I am thankful that my husband had a great checkup at the doctor tuesday. I am thankful that I have had the opportunity to make such wonderful bloggy friends, I love you all. I am thankful that God wiped away my tears this week, each time the pain in my eyes brought me to tears. God is bigger than any of my problems, He makes the hurt go away. I am thankful that I go to my eye doctor today, I am praying that he will be able to tell me, what he is planning on doing to help me. The joy of the Lord is my strength, He helps me to face each day with joy, to fight the good fight. In the light, or in the darkness, I will rejoice. I've got the joy, joy, joy,joy down in my heart, and if the devil doesn't like it, he can sit on a tack!! Blessings to you all, and much love.

Oh Denise,

First, I am so glad your husband is healthy... this is a giant blessing.

Second, I am going to begin to pray early and fast. I will be bringing you and your eye condition before our Lord.

You are a wonderful friend inthis amazing online community. I stand amazed that so many of us have become such friends and are compelled to pray for one another.

Love you, Let me know what the Doctor tells you. Love and hugs, Lynn

Denise...... you are always so good for spirit.... it is the joy of the Lord that brings us strength.. You hang on to that joy and He will give you strength for the road that you walk...... I do not pretend to know why things happen but I know the Man that is always there to hover over us and shelter us when the winds blow..

Good Morning Denise,
I am praying that you will find out today about your eyes. I know GOD already knows, and it will be revealed to you in HIS time. We do have so many things to be "THANKFUL" for. I enjoyed reading your "THANKFUL THURSDAY" list. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
