Welcome to Thankful Thursdays! I pray your day will be a blessed one! Laurie @ Women Taking A Stand is our host this month! Check her out!
We spent Wednesday visiting my parents and had a wonderful time! If you don't already know, I'm very close to my family and very passionate about family. So today I am thankful for my parents. My parents have been married for almost 36 years and have 3 kids. I am the middle child. I have 1 older brother and 1 younger sister. I think I have the best parents in the world! They raised us to see a home isn't about the type of home,but the home is about the love in it. We were not rich or well off by no means,but we had love. Were we poor? No not in our eyes,but yes in some peoples eyes we were. We always had shelter,food,and clothing and to me that is what mattered. My Mother accepted Christ at age 28,but it wasn't until 2 years ago that my Daddy accepted Christ. He still always raised us to do what was right in God's eyes. We were loved and we loved our parents. I'm so grateful for my parents and the person they helped me to become. They have an empty nest now and 7 grandkids to show for it. It's wonderful to see them both living for the Lord. They have had their hard times. My Daddy has been suffering for 2 years now with horrible pain all over and doctors aren't sure why. He's not wavered in his faith though. He's not even been able to work,they make it on my Mama's income from Wal-Mart and literally live on a prayer. But God didn't promise life would be easy. He did say He would provide and for them He does. It's hard seeing them struggle,but it is also amazing to see God provide for them supernaturally. Keep them in your prayers please!
What are you thankful for today?
