Thankful Thursday

It's time to share what you are thankful for with some wonderful ladies. Lynn@Spiritually Unequal Marriage is our host for the month of October. She is an awesome lady who encourages me! So check out her post and link up with us.

  • a loving,caring,compassionate husband
  • a forgiving,mighty,long suffering God
  • 2 forgiving,loving,handsome boys
  • a hot cup of coffee on a cool morning
  • a bonfire on a cool night with smores
  • the beauty of nature that my God blesses me with
  • health of my body and mind
  • windy days outside with my family
  • a warm,comfy bed at night
  • the conviction of the Holy Spirit
Those are just a few things I'm thankful for! I'm also thankful for the Voice of the Martyr's ministry. They spread the word about the persecuted church. At the age of 23 a passion for missions was birthed in me while on a trip to Honduras with a Prison Ministry team. I then found out about VOM and their ministry. Wow. It is amazing to hear the stories of OUR brothers and sisters overseas and even near us in Mexico that suffer for the name of Jesus. If you haven't checked out their link or blog you should. It will really make you thankful for all the things we have here. Pray for these people! They don't like to be persecuted,but they are not willing to deny the name of Christ. How powerful!!

Have a great day!!

Check out my new post at my other blog,From My Heart.


  1. Enjoyed your list of blessings this morning! Sounds like you are enjoying fall.
    Have a great day :)

  2. Another Great list! So many times I find myself agreeing with all you say. I'm from Louisiana. What part of the south are you from? (I know I should know b/c I do read your blog, but I just don't remember. LOL! I have a bad memory. I just blame it on a busy life.)

  3. Heather, love your list of blessings! Isn't God good?

    I'm kind of wanting a night around the bonfire with smores, myself!

  4. Heather, I did not know where to comment! But again, I am so grateful to hear that you will be joining us in our journey through Philippians.

    Under His sun and by His grace,


  5. what a wonderful list of thankfullness

  6. What a wonderful thankful list you have shared with us.

    I totally agree with you on praying for our brothers and sisters around the globe who stand strong for their faith. The first time I heard about VOM was when I read a novel by Randy Alcorn. Although it was a novel, it was based on a story of Christian brother in China.

    Thank you for sharing your grateful heart with us and the reminder that we are truly blessed in a country where we can (still) mention the name of Jesus.

    Love & peace,
