Thankful Thursday

"Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

 This week I wanted to say that I am thankful that God watched over my little girl and her aunt & uncle and family as they went on vacation the end of last week.  Maddie had a great time and she got to visit with her great grandma and great aunt & uncle's.  So thankful that she had the opportunity to go with them on that long vacation.  She was gone 4 days!  Thank you Lord for keeping her safe, and for not letting her get too homesick and for bringing them home safely too.  
Also thankful that He was with me as I had a tooth pulled on Tuesday.  It wasn't too bad but the dentist was worried about how long the roots were and he did have to work a bit to get it out. 
I am thankful that God was there with me and with the dentist, making him strong enough to pull it out!  
I am also thankful that my husband has the week off!  Monday we cooked out and then Tuesday he took Maddie out shopping (for 4 hours!) so I could get some rest after having my tooth pulled.  Wed we just hung around the house and played with Maddie.  Today we are supposed to be going to Lawton and I can't wait!! 

Thank you God for giving us everything that we need.  Thank you for being there for us every step of our journey, for guiding us in the right direction.  Thank You for all You do!  Everything always works out some how even when we aren't sure about.  You have things under control and we need to remember that!  Thank you Lord, for being such an awesome God!!!

Well I've never had to have a tooth pulled but COOL that you found things to be thankful for even in that. Hope the rest of your week is grand!

Thanks Pam! First one I have had to have pulled since I had my wisdom teeth removed in '92.
