Thankful Tuesday

1 Chronicles 16:8
Give thanks unto the Lord, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people!!

The first Thankful Tuesday can be found here. I'm pretty sure this is going to have to become a habit. It does too much for my soul for it not to! Annabelle was up a good portion of the night saying her ears hurt. She came to our bed for a little bit, we gave her ibuprofen, and then she talked and talked and talked. That little girl loves to talk. It was so cute! She said all these words in English and Spanish and told me all about how much she loved me and how she was so happy to be in mommy and daddy's bed and then she decided that I needed another pillow and that daddy needed to give me one of his. Hilarious. I know it's a "you had to be there" kind of story but I hope not to forget how funny it was (not then, ha, but now!)

Anyway, my first thing to be extremely thankful for this morning is that AB got an appointment with the doctor's office that Adelyn has been going to. Annabelle just hadn't been there because she hasn't been sick or needed a well check. The old doctor's office has already forwarded all of the charts to the new one and so I was a little concerned about where we were going to take ab. Hand and Hand was soooooo helpful, getting us in today at noon even though Annabelle is considered a new patient! PTL!!

Here are some verses about being thankful etc. Don't you just love how alive God's word is?!

Psalm 77:11-14
I will consider all your ways and mediate on all your mighty deeds!

Philippians 4:4
Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say REJOICE.

Psalm 100:4
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto him and bless his name.

Colossians 3:15
And let the peace of God rule your hearts, to which you have been called in one body, and be thankful.

Psalm 107:22
And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving and rehearse His deeds with shouts of joy and singing!

Today, I am thankful for:

1) Annabelle's dr appointment at noon!
2) My health
3) My coupon trip last night
4) The opportunity to get to know my neighbors better lately
5) An extended family who loves me dearly
6) Adam spending more time at home lately!
7) How God has grown our relationship over the past several months
8) Some of my rich friendships in Marysville
9) The joy I have in my heart
10) How much God taught me through "Calm My Anxious Heart."
11) His mercies that are so new to me every morning
12) His faithfulness
13) That He gives me more than I can handle so I have to constantly, second by second, depend on Him
14) My friend Crystal coming to visit on Monday!!
15) A vaca coming up
16) Being a part of a church where people are in love with my Lord
17) My sweet girls 

I would LOVE for you to link up! :)
