Thankful Thursday

Day 1: I am THANKFUL for friends that you can have fun with but also have sweet spiritual fellowship.

Day 2: I am THANKFUL for new beginnings. The beginning that each new day brings... new friendships, new memories, new adventurers... new sun sets....

Day 3: I am THANKFUL to have a man that goes to church with me, loves the Lord & the ministry

Patrick & I at church

Day 4: I am THANKFUL for the good ol' hymns. They convict & encourage you like no other songs out there... 

Day 5: I am THANKFUL for my salvation. At 4 years old I understood that my lies, disobedience and temper tantrums were sin & would not let me into heaven. I did not want to go to hell and so that night, before I went to bed I prayed on this old brown & green couch. I prayed "Jesus forgive my bad things. Take me to heaven. I don't want to go to hell. In Jesus name. Amen"

Since then I have been beyond blessed to grow up with Jesus. To have him guide me.

Day 6: I am THANKFUL for my mom and the sweet times we have together.

Day 7: I am THANKFUL for my fun birds. They make me laugh so often....and can be super annoying. They are the loudest when I am talking on Skype..... and they get SUPER excited when I listen to college classes. I think they should get a degree too since they listened to all the classes with me...ok, maybe not...they were always talking in class....  

What are some things you are thankful for this week?



  1. 1. I am thankful for God's everlasting love. I have always struggled with wondering if I am loved by people. Then I noticed that God is standing there with His arms wide open ready to give me a big hug and tell me He loves me.
    2. I am thankful for my friends. I have also had times where some friends have not been true friends to me. But to know that I have real friends who love me for me and are so supportive is great. Plus to have three days this week where I have seen them is a big bonus!
    3. I am thankful for my siblings. Lately me and my brothers and sister have been getting along really well and that is just a blessing.
    4. I am thankful for God's strength. I have been having migraine headaches and will be starting a special diet to help with my headaches. So to have God pick me up every morning and help me throgh each and every day guves me a wonderful feeling. God truly is bigger than anything I face.

    Ps. It has been awile since I commented because life has been crazy. I truly do enjoy reading your posts everyday and hopfully will be commenting more often!

    1. I am sorry you've been battling migraines. Started getting those a lot at your age too. :/ NO FUN! Hope that diet helps. I've been on a diet too for my gall bladder. I feel so much better, so much more energized and I lost 5 pounds! :D

      I'm happy to know you read my posts even if you don't always comment. ☺

  2. Lovely post, Iris! One thing that I am thankful for this week is having the day off from nannying tomorrow so that I can focus on getting caught up on my homework.(:
