Thankful Thursday

Oh man, this has been a hard week in our home. It's been one of those weeks where you question everything you are doing and if it's even the right thing. I'm so glad God gives grace because I know I used a whole lot this week.

I'm thankful for grace. Where would I be without it? I would be more of a mess than I am now. I mess up a whole lot,especially with my boys. I am glad they give grace to me so freely. I just don't know how I did it before knowing Jesus intimately. I am thankful He gives so freely to me who messes up so much. I love the hymn amazing grace. It soothes my soul and mind.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.

How refreshing! How amazing! What are you thankful for? Join Iris @ Thankful Thursday and link up with us.


  1. I always love that hymn. We sang it at Meemaw's memorial service.
    And I'm thankful for that grace too.
