Thankful Thursday


I had to share what I am thankful for today and
it is for the dear sweet people I have met.
One thing I have learned about blogging is the powerful
button called comments. Giving and Receiving. I have learned
that so often we leave a comment never knowing
if the person on the other end is in the midst of a trial,
of a heartache or just having trouble getting through
the day.

One of the blogs I just happened across, was My Letters
To Emily
. The day I just happened in I was so blessed,
I went and read all of her old posts. Maybe it was the sweetness
of her words, or the gentleness of her heart, but I was drawn in
and always in my mind I think of Lea as Lovely Lea.
She had and does bless me through all that she shares,
she makes me laugh at her perfect day. She makes
me see New York as she saw it standing in the rain,
waiting for a cabbie.
But I wanted to share how she blessed me this week.
I got a box in the mail. In the box was this,

I love things wrapped in tissue paper and tied
with a bow. In this tissue paper was this

Isn't that the cutest thing ever a egg pail. I love it so much.
Here it is in a close-up.

I put it on my mantel and every time I walk by
I am blessed. I am so thankful today that God
has brought such sweet people into my life and
I feel like today this verse is for me.

"But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love is with those
who fear him, and righteousness with their children's children."
(Psalm 103:17)
I have so much to be thankful for, every day, but I wanted
Lea to know how blessed I am.
Happy Thursday!

Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, for His wonderful works to the children of men!

(Psalm. 107:6)

  9. Well I can totally ditto this precious post about Lea...I pray that I will get to meet her this side of heaven, but if not, I will so look forward to seeing her in heaven....her gift of encouragement is overwhelming!!!
    This is just precious.

    I also see how much the comments can encourage me in my day and how even being aware of others needs is a privileged to support in prayer or through a comment on their blog.

    Thank you for letting me visit you blog and for the encouragement I have received from your words.
