I'm thinking this will be my regular Friday post. TGoF! Thank God on Friday! I also challenge any readers to this with me. List ten things that you are thankful for, other than the obvious. Really think about your list. Here is mine...

I am thankful for/that
#1 God was holding my husband in His hands on Sunday when he crashed his motorcycle.
#2 we live in a country (even outside the US) in which we are able to worship our Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, not in fear but with joy.
#3 my boys are healthy, happy and thriving.
#4 my husband has a secure job.
#5 the internet. Honestly, it is a necessity living here.
#6 my patience is getting better.
#7 Joshua is finally figuring out the potty thing.
#8 I have amazing friends.
#9 a great family (even my in-laws!).
#10 God puts up with me and all the junk I do and still loves me for me!

Some verses to think about...

Psalm 7:17
I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.
Psalm 28:7
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.
Psalm 35:18
I will give you thanks in the great assembly; among throngs of people I will praise you.
Luke 22:19
And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me."
1 Corinthians 15:57
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

I love! Search all the versions of the Bible by keyword, chapter or verse.

Have a blessed day! Enjoy your Easter holiday!

P.S. Thanks to the Company Girls for stopping by and saying hi!


  1. Wow! Italy!
    I am thankful for so much today! Our health, our safety,Easter,improvement in my son's behavior,etc,etc...

  2. I learned (AFTER my child was potty trained) that it really was HIS accomplishment and he would do it when we was ready.

    It was at 3 years and 2 months, but it was his accomplishment, as we were GLAD he reached that milestone. Whenever I would complain to my pediatrician he would always say "He won't start kindergarten in diapers--I promise." He was right, but it still made me mad.

    Thank you for the coffee! I hope you experience a Christ filled Easter!

  3. Thanks for sharing your list. Glad your husband is okay.

    Have a good weekend.

  4. Thanks for the Italian coffee tonight!! It's rainy here in Spokane, WA and I needed the extra cup of coffee to warm up. I am envious of your living in Italy. I would LOVE to be living overseas again....since my husband retired from the AF last May, I've been grounded from a lot of travel and I'm missing it.

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoy next week! blessings to you~
