Thanking God on Friday

- I'm thankful for conviction. I know it sounds strange but that's what keeps me in line, when the Holy Spirit speaks to me about something I'm not doing or should be doing. This week, while off I've have many nights to think about life and what I'm doing with it. Let's just say I could be doing better. So, I hope to come off of this vacation refreshed and ready to keep moving (as this is my word of the year...see more about that here).

- I am thankful for bloggers who read because my summer reading list is growing. I'm thinking of putting it together to share with you so you can have some good reads too. I know one book I'm going to break down and read is Twilight. I just have to know what the excitement is all about.

- I'm thankful for Staycation 2009! This time off has been very productive and very needed. Rondell and I have gotten so much done and we've spent some really good quality time together as a family. One thing we (OK, Rondell) did was paint our bathroom. Here are some during pictures:

What? You don't have a painter on staff? I've had mine for 7 years now...great investment!

If you look above the shower you will see the mustard color that the bathroom used to be. Now the color is Asparagus by Behr. It's just what I wanted.

Last picture, the bathroom is super tiny. I'll post the finished pictures once I add a few touches.

- I'm thankful for blogging. While sometimes reading other blogs makes me a little envious (nice houses, laundry rooms, staying at home, close Small Groups), I learn so much and have been inspired to do things I would never have thought I would. I've also "met" some really cool people who I can call friends.

Why are you thankful?

What a great list. I just love when we get to spend good family time while also getting a lot of stuff done.
I so agree with you about sometimes being envious of fellow bloggers. But I always have to remember to do as the Lord says be content with what I have. But I also agree that I have meet great pals (like yourself) and learned a lot through this blog land.
Hope you have a great weekend.

LOVE the new bathroom color. Amazing what a little paint can do for a room! Sounds like your staycation is going great. I have finally had a few minutes to catch up on some of my blog reading, and have really enjoyed looking around on your blog. Your kids are just adorable. Oh, I love the friend making mondays thing too. I may have to sign on for that next week. Sorry for the randomness, but I seem to have had a lot to tell ya! Have a great weekend!

Those are so some great things to be thankful for! I love reading these because it helps me to appreciate things too :) I LOVE the bathroom color! We are in desperate need of painting and I've always wanted a room that color green! So pretty! Great job Rondell :)

So glad you've had an awesome week!
I've loved meeting blogging friends too...I always find things so inspirational...and other moms who are so relatable! :)

I love the wall color! It is similar to the color in my son's room.

I am thankful for healthy chidren and a Godly husband. I am thankful for my friends, both in real life and in blog life!
