30 days of Thankfulness

I never ever participate in these kinds of things because I have a hard enough time blogging as it is but I really want to do this......

I have already missed day one, so I will have day 1 and 2 in the same post. See I told you I am really bad at this kind of thing.

Day 1

I am so thankful for the salvation that the Lord gave to me about 20 yrs. ago. The great sacrifice that Christ gave on my behalf, I will forever be thankful for. Thank you Lord.

If you would like to be saved and experience a love greater than I can ever explain, please go here:

O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever. Psalm 107:1

Day 2

I am thankful for God's Word given to me to instruct me on my life.

Every scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness. 2 Tim. 3:16

About 9 yrs. ago, way into our salvation, we started really seeking God's Word and path for our lives. In this search we found Deut. 6:5-9.

5 "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
6 "These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.
7 "You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.
8 "You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead.
9 "You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.


These verses led us to homeschooling.

Then Titus 2:3-5:

3 Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good,
4 so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.


These verses led me to being at home and doing my work in the home. They also led me to being more under the authority of my husband. Which I still work at daily.

We work hard at seeing a scripture and applying it as best as we can to our daily walk.


Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, And light unto my path. Psalm 119:105
