Thanking God on Friday!

~  I am thankful for this blog...for so many reasons.  As I was getting ready to post this I realized that it is my 700th post...700th!  And you're still here.  I love what I learn from having this blog and reading other blogs.  I love the friendships that I've developed through this blog.  I love the fact that I'm documenting things for my children to read in the future (which reminds me that I need to look at putting this into one of those blog books).

~  I am thankful that an old friend asked me to go to dinner.  We haven't seen each other in a long time and it will be nice to get together.  AND, we're going to my favorite restaurant...Abuelo's.

~  I am thankful for Jamison's teacher's idea of having each child write a special note to Jamison since she was star student of the week.  These children wrote the most beautiful words about my daughter...kind, brave, great writer, best friend, sweet, and on and on.  I can only imagine that Jamison will treasure those notes for a very long time.

~  I am thankful for verses that come to me in His timing (because we all know that His timing is not our timing).  Verses that I would have not otherwise come across, but He knew I needed to hear, Isaiah 43:1-2:
1 But now thus says the LORD, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.

I'm thankful you are here blogging. :o) 700 posts is INCREDIBLE! :o)

I remember in the second grade we all had a chance to be "student of the week" and Mrs. O would have us each write one sentence about the person. I hadn't remembered until just now with Jamison. How WONDERFUL for her!!

Yes, God in His time. :o)

Kelli, Is.43 is special to me because the Lord showed me in a dream what he would do in my future and confirmed it through this scripture in verses 5-7. Isn't God awesome!
