Thankful Thursdays Premier

29 Apr

I am thankful for the people and things in my life on a daily basis, but expressing my gratefulness on Thursdays allows for lovely alliteration. The premier edition of Thankful Thursdays features someone and something I have very recently been blessed by.

God works in mysterious ways often, and other times He works in ways that shout of His amazing plans for your life. My recent post, What S.H.A.P.E. am I?, received a very sweet and encouraging comment from the author of another WordPress blog. Jana, of The Secret Life of the Bishop’s Wife. I, of course, checked out her blog and was delighted to find a kindred spirit. Once again, God used an ordinary medium, such as the comment option, to pour His hope and encouragement into my life; and at a time I am earnestly seeking it. Jana had recently blogged on almost the exact same topic as I had, and her heart was so transparent and beautiful. I immediately whispered my thanks to God, or as my darling husband observed, I randomly spoke to the ceiling.

I have since read more of Jana’s wonderfully insightful, funny, well-written, and encouraging blog and my heart has been flooded with joy at her words, and how God is working through her. I also cried, because I am an emotional mush sometimes when my gift of empathy kicks in, as it did when I read the recent post about her darling son, Rowan. In, What are You Believing for?, Jana shares her family’s recent news concerning Rowan’s health, and while the diagnosis is not encouraging, the hope she shares is contagious. I encourage you to check it out and join us in lifting Rowan, Jana, and her husband, Barry, in prayer.

So, Jana, I am thankful for you and your willingness to share your beautiful heart through your words. I too, am grateful that we have become blogging buddies! I look forward to seeing how God moves in our lives!
