Thankful Thursdays

It's Thursday again my friends.  I'm not sure what happened to the first part of the week.  I know it was there, but it was full of emotions.  I have herd before that you go through every emotion each day.  I have always believed that. 

This week has been hard on me.  I've had shock over how much everything has gone up in a year (we went to the eye doctor), I've felt despair, sadness, and self pity over something I wanted soooo bad that was just not meant to be, and I've felt happy, excited, nervous and scared over my little boy going to meet his Kindergarten teacher for the first time.  All those feelings happened in three days.  I am ready to get into my old happy go lucky emotions. 

So, now you are wondering what I could possibly be thankful for after all that.  Well, I am thankful for each and every emotion I had.  It is amazing how God has made us.  We are so intricately designed and the emotions that we are given is just the tip it all. 

Without our emotions we would be so different.  We wouldn't be the great people we are today.  Imagine your life without just one of the emotions you feel.  I don't think I would want to loose any of my emotions.  Sometimes I just wish I could keep them to myself a little more;)

I can only imagine that God's feelings for us.  He loves us a million and more times than we can ever imagine loving someone.  When we think our sadness is going to kill us we must remember how much sadder God is sometimes.   WOW!

I also wanted to thank all of you who have been praying with me about my son's Medicaid.  I still have not gotten a letter or a phone call telling me if he will get renewed.  Please continue to keep us in your prayers. This is heavy on my heart right now.

Thankful Thursday is hosted this month by Laurie at Women Taking A Stand! Hop on over and join us!


  1. my emotions seem to be very much a blessing/curse! love that i feel so deeply (sometimes) yet wish i could control them more.

  2. I think everyone has gone through emotions, especially today with the stock market crash. I was at work, but my husband saw the faces of the the traders on the news. They said 1,000 words. The good news is, despite all our trials, God is still on His throne. He loves us and will provide for the faithful. Peace.
