Thankful Thursday


Wow

So much to be thankful for this Thursday.  My Dad continues to slowly improve each day.  I discovered that some of my students had requested prayer for him at their respective churches.  That touched me deeply.

Go forth and be thankful on this Thursday.

Linking up with Madge.....

  10. How great that your students care and that your Dad is better. Gratitude is very, very important in our lives. We often pray for help, but forget to say thank you when it arrives.

  11. I'm so thankful that he is still improving... dads are such special people to daughters! You say your students, are you a teacher?? I just retired from driving a 40' transit style school bus for 15 years. And the power of prayer, no one can really fathom the mysteries of going to God with our cares and concerns for ourselves and for others, but He does hear us. Thank you for coming by to share on Rurality Blog Hop #37!

  31. I realise it's where the bales are but loving the two dimensional aspect of this view.

    (I don't talk about this much at all on my blog (as it's not what I do there) but on a side note from my faith, I believe in the power of prayer. It works out or affects people in different ways while some requests aren't good for us & it depends on our heart. A friend of mine took a more senior job quite a distance from his home a while back. With taxation, oil issues & other rises that we have to deal with, Petrol (or Gas) prices rose to rates that were difficult to afford. His continual long days & no social life became a burden. Some people from the church including myself prayed for him regularly without success. I had an overall feeling that he was to develop patience and other attributes on his journey rather than just the request fulfilled. I shared this with him at one point and he said that his dad had got the same feeling. Recently he eventually got the dream job he wanted with better hours, less stress, better company, less money but less gas with the opportunity of applying for the more senior role at some point ... & he is the better person for waiting for it.)
