Thankful Thursday


Today is Thankful Thursday, and it is also my big sister's birthday. Happy Birthday Vickie, hope your day is as beautiful as you are. She is now 55, and I am 46. Wow, the years have flown by. I love her so very, very much. This year for her birthday, I made her gifts. The funds are low, and I was actually glad that I had to make her gifts, they come straight from my heart. I made her a prayer box, a Lydia jar, and a alabaster jar filled with oil that I prayed over. I hope she enjoys them, I mailed her box to her yesterday. This week has been a week of sweet blessings. Tuesday was my 25th wedding anniversary, and also my dad's 75th birthday. Now, today, is my sister's birthday. Thank You Lord for all the blessings You have given me, I love You dearly.
