Thankful Thursday

I am thankful that in the midst of anything & everything, God is there to provide strength and encouragement in ways that are amazing.
I am thankful that Joe continues to step in faith & obedience to encourage others working with wounded children. I am thankful that God opens doors in remarkable ways.
I am thankful that God has placed us into a church community that encourages people to live outside this world's normal. How exciting is that!?!
I am thankful for trusted friends & prayer partners.
I am thankful for this season filled with lights, excitement & anticipation for the birth of our Savior, who makes all things possible.
I have much to be thankful for, these things are but a few. Thanks for letting me share them with you. I will leave you with one final scene that I was so thankful for last evening:

This is my daughter's high school basketball team over for a team dinner. She came home late Tuesday & said, "We were trying to figure out what to do for a team dinner, & I thought it would be okay for us just to have it. Tomorrow." I love that girl...honestly, she truly is my daughter b/c I am totally about a house full of people & being spontaneous! I was so thankful to have kids everywhere & to get to feed them, too!! And thankful that my daughter knows that her momma can't resist! What a neat group of girls!! Life is good..........
