Thankful Thursdays

I had a great time with my Mom today. We went
shopping at Guthrie. We enjoy the thrift stores
and antique shops. We even found a new cafe to
eat lunch at.

I'm still so thankful that I have my Mom. My
Dad has been dead almost 30 years. It will be
30 years in September. I have a step Dad,Delmar.
I'm glad Mom has him.

Another thing I'm thankful for is a lesson God
gave me today on my walk. As I was out walking
my big toe started hurting. I finally had to
stop and take my shoe and sock off. There was a

I thought about how much that small splinter
hurt. It made it difficult for me to walk. I
think our life as a christian is like that.
Small things can become big problems and cause
difficulty in our walk with God.

We have some minor thing that we allow ourselves
to get angry about and it grows and grows until
it causes us to lose our focus on God. Anger and
resentment are like that. They can fester and
become worse just like if I had not gotten that
splinter out of my toe.

We need to pray that God will show us the
"splinters" in our lives and that He will help
us remove those.

I hope that you have a Thankful Thursday and
think about a blessing you have had today!
