Thankful Thursday!

There is so much going on in my life right now. It may seem like to the outsider, there is nothing new. But, I just really am aware of a difference. So, how does this translate into being "thankful"?
Good question. I'm not sure really. I just feel a stirring and I'm thankful. I have been feeling sort of "blah" and "ho hum", like I am just biding my time and making it through until the next thing comes along. Sort of like eating my veggies just so I can get my dessert!
I have felt like I'm stuck in the veggie stage! That explains it exactly! Not really enjoying what I'm doing, but doing it anyway because I know something else is coming down the pike.
So... I am thankful. God is moving. He is calling me forth and up and imparting something inside me. The dessert is on the way!
You probably would not be able to tell just by looking at me (unless you think that I'm getting a little "fluffier" - and THAT is certainly not what I want nor am I talking about). The change is so subtle, so slow, so seemingly insignificant. But, it is there. I know it is. Next year at this time, I will look back and realize that this is just the beginning of something BIG and God is doing it. You will be able to see the dessert and it WON'T be on my hips!

What do you feel is different about your life? I know it is happening all over! God is moving! Get ready for your dessert! Aren't you thankful???

I feel like something big is going to happen too. I just feel like i am more in the detox stage of getting all the mess out of my thinking so that i can make room for the dessert. I love it when change is in the air. It always leave me looking for new ways to rely on God in that change.
Yippee! I am thankful and i don't why yet but hey i am thankful anyway!


For days I felt like Spring was here not Fall so I know God is doing some new things. The Jewish year has already started and it ends in 8. Our year coming up is beginnings. For me, one of the things stirring is HOPE. It has been deferred for so long that my heart was sick BUT GOD has begun the revelation that hope is going to be fulfilled.

One day while I was praying He told me the verse in Romans...Hope does not disappoint because the love of God has been shed abroad in your heart.......... WOW we serve an awesome God.

For some reason the Fall always makes me think of family and memories. One reason--it was 2 years ago (Nov. 5) that my Daddy died and also we are getting ready for the holidays. I am thankful for so many things right now, especially for God guiding us to make good decisions and then confirming it!

Love your blog header pic! This post made me think. I haven't been feeling this way exactly, but maybe it's more about my attitude than reality.
