Thankful Thursday


There's so much to be thankful for, even in the form of this email from my boss. It sure gave me quite a chuckle and help me to stay above water, especially when I'm stressed out with year end and what not.

Psalm 23
(For the Work Place)

The Lord is my real boss, and I shall not want.
He gives me peace, when chaos is all around me.
He gently reminds me to pray and do all things without
murmuring and complaining.

He reminds me that He is my source and not my job.
He restores my sanity everyday and guides my decisions
that I might honor Him in all that I do.

Even though I face absurd amounts of e-mails, system
crashes, unrealistic deadlines, budget cutbacks, gossiping
co-workers, discriminating supervisors and an aging body
that doesn't cooperate every morning, I still will not stop---
for He is with me! His presence, His peace, and His power
will see me through.

He raises me up, even when they fail to promote me.
He claims me as His own, even when the company threatens
to let me go. His Faithfulness and love is better than any bonus cheque

His retirement plan beats any 401k there is!
When it's all said and done, I'll be working for Him a whole lot longer
and for that



A Happy and Thankful Dog on Thursday

All of you were right, I met a friend! A new friend!

Isn't she sweet?

On another happy note, we received this friendship award from Sugar and would like to share with everyone, simply because LS and I truly appreciate your friendship.

Thank you Sugar!

Friends are so much to be thankful for, isn't it? The joy of meeting friends, new and old, and the blessings of their friendship.

I'm so thankful to have met so many wonderful friends. Although we have lost some along the way, their memory will always live on.

What are you thankful for? Hope everyone is having a thankful time!

Yes, Serendipity I did have a great time & it is great to have found a sister in my SIL Peggy. I thought about what you said about being wistful. Being an only child I was probably more like that when I was younger wishing for a younger brother or sister to play with. I learned it was ok to be by myself. My son has not learned this yet. I feel him. Yes, God did indeed send one of His angels to my Daddy. We are thankful he is ok too. Hope you have a blessed weekend as well.

Holly said...

Enjoyed your Thankful Thursday blog. I could use it at work pretty much daily! :)
Glad you stopped by my blog earlier...... I'm new to this world....
Slowly but surely.
Its amazing how writing your thoughts and prayers out is so beneficial for our own heart and prayerfully it helps others as well!

God Bless,
