...whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Philippians, Chapter 4
Thinking about all these things puts me in the right frame of mind for THANKFUL Thursday!
What was honorable about this week?
I'm thankful for DS#1 and the fact that he has undertaken the position as a Scout Master. Scouting is an honorable organization and they teach boys a lot about truth, honesty and being prepared. DS#4 and his wife are also very involved in scouting with their two boys too.
The Scout Oath
On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
What was just and pure?
I'm thankful for a 'thank you'. Maybe a little far fetched, but a phone call from one of my granddaughters to thank me for her birthday card just made my day. I have so many children and grandchildren that live far away. Sometimes I hear a thank you from them, and sometimes not
What was excellent?
I'm thankful that after a considerable amount of rain and cold weather, we are to have some Excellent days ahead For the next 5 or 6 days the sun will be shinning and it will be warmer. Excellent indeed!
What was worthy of praise?
Worthy of praise and thanks is some wonderful news that DD and her hubby shared with me this week. Long awaited prayers have been answered for them
All these things make up my many blessings and for all these I am very thankful.
Just a little thought for today...
Faith: Putting all your eggs in God's basket, then counting your blessings before they hatch.
My hope for this Thursday - that you all will find things that you can be thankful for too
