~ Thankful Thursday ~

"You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy, that I might sing praises to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!" Psalm 30:12 NLT

Its been a very productive week and I'm just thankful for the privilege to live it. I don't have many specific things to be thankful for but I am thankful for the opportunity to just be. As I ponder what I could share with you, I realize I just want you all to know that giving thanks to my Lord and King is the most important thing I want to do. Without Him I truly am nothing, because of Him I am blessed and knowing Him has made my life truly full. So, I give thanks, with a grateful heart, to the one and only ~ my Lord and Savior. For He alone is worthy of all my praise.

My little specifics of the week:
1. My dentist ~ no more pain and inexpensive caring. ;D
2. My dh ~ for the many gifts he's given me this month including my recent one, a Razr V3.
3. Movies ~ advance showings at midnight. PofC3 Woohoo!!
Be blessed ~ may the Lord richly bless you and yours as you continually give thanks for all He does in your life.

~ Something to think about ~

"My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfiying life."
John 10:10

~ In Other Words ~

"What makes life on this frightful sod so exquisite is
God's merciful propensity to perform divine tasks
amid deeply flawed people."

Now thats a mouthful and I'm going to leave it at that for now. I may return with my musings but leave me a message and let me know what you think of it.
Don't forget to stop by and visit those who have already shared their thoughts.

~ Thankful Thursday ~

Wow, its been a while since I participated in this here meme, but I am thankful I'm able to share again though. Last week, I had a bunch to say. Unfortunately, my peri-menopause state has taken over and I don't remember what I was planning to write. Hmm, well I am very thankful that though I can't remember as I once did, I am still able to function and my short-term memory is working. LOL

So without further ado, here is my thankfulness list.
~ opportunity to volunteer at the LPGA
~ to serve and make new friends
~ the ability to give my oldest dd a love gift each day til her b-day - She's 19yo, yeah!
~ the friend who blessed my daughter w/a digital camera
~ to see/hear and work for Michael W. Smith - it was awesome
~ my SP10, she is awesome - she sent me a lovely red package which brighten my day.
~ for Iris, the hostess for this wonderful meme - her "TT" post made me smile.
~ for God's presence in the midst of my chaos and the assurance that He will be with me all next week during my whirlwind of activity.

Have an awesome day in Him!

~ Spring Reading Thingy ~ Update

Blind Assassin ~ returned
The Joy Luck Club ~ done
Dante's Inferno
Mansfield Park
For the Children's Sake ~ done
Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World
Body Clutter ~ this will have to wait
There are no shortcuts
Knit One, Kill Two ~ done
Chicks with Sticks ~ done *****

So, the above was my original list right?! Well, lets see ~ I believe an update is in order.
Blind Assassin - returned to library w/o completing ~ too much inappropriate language for my liking.

The Joy Luck Club - listened to an abridged version and watched movie ~ not sure I liked it but it was very interesting to learning the history and life stories of these women who were brought together by shared tragedy and interest. It reminds me of some of my friends, new and old. ;D

For the Childrens Sake ~ book for those who want to use Charlotte Mason's principles today, at home and in a school. Valuable resource ~ full of tips, explanations and ideas to implement the methods. I highly recommend this book to new and veteran homeschoolers.

Knit One, Kill Two ~ this is a murder mystery which involves a community of knitters. The main character doesn't knit but is the heir of the murdered victim. She learns to knit and appreciate the craft that her beloved aunt adored as she tries to find her killer and keep from losing her property. I found the book a bit dull but the pattern and recipe in the back of the book fun. I look forward to using both. I am planning to read the next book "Needled to Death" and hope its alot better. ;D

Chicks with Sticks ~ this is a young adult book that I absolutely enjoyed. I know, I know ~ it was written for teens but nonetheless I found it alot of fun to read. The main character, of course is a teenage, and its told from her perspective. You are introduced to her as she is experiencing another night of insomnia. Boy, can I relate to those nights. You follow her life for about a year and discover the source of her agony, the comfort she finds in knitting along with the flack she gets for knitting. You meet her friends, her crazy parents who turn around at the end and you leave with the satisfied feeling that you too have come away with a new perspective on life. Knitting can bring all sorts together for a common good no matter what the odds. Thats the part I like about the book and my new found hobby. Enjoy!

Thats all for now. Happy Reading!
