Thankful Tuesdays: Grateful to Gather

Hello!  Its been a busy day and I still have dinner to cook, but I thought I'd quickly pop in to count my blessings... This week, we give thanks to God for:

:: Him being our Shepherd.  In times of doubt or worry, it is always comforting to know that our God watches over us.

:: Sunlight: That allows plants to grow, and gives us rainbows.

:: Family, that wrap around and keep the children close and safe, and always have time to read "just one more book".  That lend helping hands so you can take a break.  That are patient with your shortcomings, and tolerate your flaws.

:: The visas being cleared, which means we do not need to navigate another admin minefield of applying to another country.  And also means we can move ahead with the planning and hoping, and dreaming too... :)

:: Reminders of love in the commonest places:

:: Food, that nourishes our body and keeps us going.  And how most of us have the happy problem of deciding "what to eat" or "what to cook", rather than wonder about when the next meal is ever coming...

What are you thankful for this week, friends?  If you blog, and decide to take some time to list your blessings for the week, do add your link (to the specific post) below so that we could gather in cyberspace to encourage each other and give thanks together.  And to allow your readers to hop over to the gathering, please copy and paste the code provided below at the bottom of your post.  Let the thanksgiving begin!

  1. It's so true, the littlest things that we take for granted, like a warm meal and loving family. Praise God you got your visas cleared! :)

  2. If we would just slow down and take time and have more gratitude in our hearts, maybe we'll live more enriching lives. Thanks for the invite to gather on Thankful Tuesdays Jus :)

  3. Thanks for sharing your thanksgiving! Indeed there is plenty to count our blessings for. What will you guys be doing in Germany, incidentally?

  4. June: Amen! The visas were really getting us very anxious, but I guess God was reminding us to keep trusting Him! :) Thanks for sharing your list this week too! :)

    Susan: Yes I agree! And no worries, thanks for taking time to be grateful! :)

  5. Carol: Yes, I realize there's always something to be thankful for! We are moving for a year, for hubby's job attachment over there. I'm just tagging along with the boys to eat the sausages and explore Europe, hehheh. :p

  6. My turn to relocate can come anytime n it ll be an answered prayer(except Africa i m afraid i may say no for safety issue) n i believe He had a purpose wherever He leads me to.

  7. Eliza: All the best if you move! Thanks for dropping by!
