What am I most thankful for ?

What am I most thankful for this Thursday?


gift of eternal life

The gift of eternal life.  Thank you sweet Jesus for making a way for me to live eternally with you.

In the last several months since moving back to Kentucky, I have witnessed much sickness and death of loved one (older friends). And I am witnessing another slow and agonizing death of a dear friends husband (hence why I wasn’t on here at the blog yesterday).   And I am just thankful to know that when our end here on earth is over, it’s NOT over for us that believe.  God made us a way to never die.  I am so thankful for that assurance and gift.

Onto other happenings around here, today is my check-in.  Buy that I mean that I started working out on the treadmill several weeks ago, and last week I decided to take my measurements (inches).  So today I will check to see if the inches have melted away.  LOL….no really, not expecting any major progress, but I know some of my clothes are fitting a bit different so either way I am happy, and looking in the mirror I can see some difference….so it might take it some time to reflect in the actually measurements, I don’t know.

Since I am still unemployed, I will be spending my morning on the treadmill and with my bible reading.  I really enjoy this time.  I have read the Bible through twice now and this is my third go around.  I picked up a book by Dr. Henrietta Mears to accompany me in my reading the bible this time. what the bible is all about 

This is the back cover.

imageIt helps me to better understand why things happened as they did.  I’m also taking the time to learn the books of bible in order, I have learned the first 27 books in order now to learn the rest.

Couple of questions here.  Do you have any great resources that help you with reading your bible or for bible study that you would like to share?  I’m always looking.
And also, what are planning to do today?  Please do share.

Hebrews 11:1“[Faith in Action] Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”

I wish I still had my treadmill. I keep saying I do not want to get another one until we move, but we are still at our house a year later.
You have a wonderful day sweetie!! I am sorry you have been through so much loss in these past months. You are right though, heaven is waiting for us and what a wonderful place to be. Have you read Heaven is for Real? Good book. ((BIG HUGS))!!

Hi Cindy, I was wondering if you were still blogging. I was cleaning up my linkies at my site and thought I would check here today. I have not heard from you in a long time and have only seen little comments at FB. So I guess your hubby found a job in your old hometown? Sorry about the loss of friends. I hope you keep in touch. My blog has a link to our latest Hawaii trip wtih lots of pictures. Take care. Hugs
