Thankful Thursday

Several Nashville bloggers have been doing "Thankful Thursday" for a while. In honor of GEMS last night, I'm jumping on the bandwagon. I have so much to be thankful for and I want to be constantly working to cultivate an attitude of gratitude for the grace God has shown me and His goodness in my life! So this week, here are a few things I'm thanking Him for...
  • My girls at GEMS. We're kicking back into gear now that fall is here--the theme this year is "Having a Thankful Heart." This has been one of my "life themes" over the last couple of years so I am pumped about pouring into the girls and teaching them to live lives of gratitude, hoping in future grace because of trust in what God has already done.
  • The luxury of ordering Papa John's pizza every once in a while
  • The discovery, thanks (or no thanks, maybe--knowing how good these are is dangerous) to my brother- and sister-in-law, of what my husband has dubbed "nasty sticks"--Papa John's garlic parmesan breadsticks that are so yummy they can't possibly be good for you.
  • Good health (in spite of eating nasty sticks :)
  • So many wonderful people in my life whom I can ask to pray for me, and know that they care
  • Falling gas prices
  • Women's Bible study this morning and a chance to fellowship with the ladies afterwards over lunch
  • Hugs
  • A soft bed
  • Books

How about you? What are you thankful for today?

Amy - I'd love to help you with your template. Let me know some more details of what you want changed via email and I'll start working on modifying your template code.

Also- I need you to email me the .txt of your template because what I see in your source code is JAVA and I can't do diddly-squat with that!!
