wow Bonnie praise the Lord that Dan was unhurt! Will pray that the insurance give you a good amount for the car, enough so that you can get a new one.

I am thankful because the Almost-New-Ex-Church sent us a check for 2 weeks salary! We are hoping to buy a new tumble drier, because ours has been out of order since the spring. That way we will have something tangible to show for nearly a year of ups and downs with that church! Though the money may just dwindle away paying the bills that will be arriving in December. :-/

We are going to the UK for a week from Dec 20-27. :)

Today I am thankful for the Lord's provision. The appraiser came and looked at our car. Normally they would just total it because it is a much older model. But because we just put a new engine and tranny in earlier this year, they might have enough "collateral" to fix it. But even if they decide to total it, they will give us a little more because of those major repairs. I am trusting the Lord to provide a vehicle if we need one or quick repairs!

Today a deer hit our car. I am thankful Dan was all right and it wasn't as bad as it could be. PRayers needed that the insurance claim won't take too long to process since we are without a car at the moment. Our daughter has been using our other one. Prayers also needed for my knee since I really over did it over the Thanksgiving holiday and I am having trouble walking right now. I am feeling somewhat better today so I am very thankful for that!

Today I'm grateful for how God works in our lives.

My daughter Cammie was on a birth control shot when she got pregnant. It couldn't have come at a worse time as she struggles with her relationship with her fiancÚ, with finances and job/house/car situations. Yet, this child has been drawing her heart closer to the Lord - I know she's praying more and trusting more through this pregnancy. She calls this one her miracle baby. Please continue to pray for her as the pregnancy is a high risk and she had a difficult time with Gabby when she was born. She's due in January and I know she is a little anxious about this this delivery.

But praise God, my little girl who thought she couldn't have any children because of physical damage from sexual abuse by her grandfather when she was a child is now going to have 2 beautiful children!

Larousse, what a special treat to have such grand company on your walk!

Today I'm grateful for good friends from so many of the other local churches in our area. The churches work so well together here and we have really good fellowship without all the "competition." My husband is the president of the local ministerium and I try to work with the Christian Women's group when I can. How blessed it is for brethren (and all the women) to work together in unity!

That's great Bonnie! I hope he stays in touch and that you have a special Thanksgiving celebration with them.

Today I am thankful for the leafy neighbourhood we live in. This morning I walked to the station, and saw lots of blue-tits flying around. I don't remember seeing them so often or so many! Maybe it's because the leaves have fallen off the trees, that they are more visible, or maybe there's a certain berry available that attracts them. Anyway, they kept me company as I walked through our neighbourhood up to the main road, I felt like Snow White because they were flying from bush to bush alongside me! Just beautiful.

The meeting sounds like it was helpful to shed some light on the whole situation, Larousse. I am continuing to pray for you and Rob about your ministry opportunities. God is good, all the time!

I am thankful for my little granddaughter Gabby. She is a 2 year old handful, but when she smiles and laughs, it lights up my life for sure. We are taking care of her this weekend because my daughter got sick with a flu bug yesterday so we went and picked Gabby up and brought her home with us. 2 more days to keep her - so pray that the Lord will give me strength and lots of patience! LOL!

I'm thankful that P, Rob's mentor, had a Looong meeting last night with Rob and John. Although the situation remains the same, Rob put his points over calmly (!) and it was clear that John was sticking to his unhelpful / rebellious attitude. At least now P has witnessed this for himself and can report back to the elders. P has seen also that Rob cannot work together with John, there is just not enough trust there.
We will see whether there will be any more developments.

Also, I'm thankful for the chance to do some overtime at work. This will help finance our Christmas trip to my family in England! Plus, we have our meals provided and a taxi home, so it's really not a hardship to stay late! I will be working Saturday morning and Wednesday (which is a bank holiday in France).

Hope you girls are all well!
Love from Larousse

Amen! Praise the Lord for His provision!

Today I'm thankful that I'm feeling a little better with my cold, even though my voice hasn't returned and I'm still coughing some. Because I have no voice I didn't go to choir practice. Instead, I baked some muffins tonight with some leftover apples from dinner!

Amen to that Claire!

Today I am thankful that the Lord knows our wants as well as our needs and he often meets them as well. He provided almost a whole bushel of tomatoes while we were away on sabbatical. I was so disappointed when my garden didn't produce well and said to the Lord that I wish I had been able to get more for soup! LOL! Now I have about 20 quarts of cooked tomatoes in my freezer to make into soup..... They were free! I just have to find time to do it!

Thankful today for loving sisters and brothers who have rallied round in prayer for Rob & me as we have been through this painful episode at the New/Ex Church! Last night I had a meeting with 5 people from that church and talked it over (Rob didn't attend so as not to stir up bad feelings), they are sad but believe that God will deal with the untruths going on. Rob & I are feeling much more peaceful about things today. God showed us it's like the story of Joseph, where he spent hard years in prison due to falsehoods, but in the end God brought him through.
It was a good time of "closure".
However, the church has some hard times ahead. They have no-one on the preaching rota after this Sunday (tomorrow) and the 88% of people who voted for Rob will be asking some tough questions of the elders.
Rob believes God used all his meetings and emails to shine God's light on the shady areas, which otherwise would be undiscovered.
Our pastor from "Old Church" encouraged us to just get back into the swing of things at Old Church and put New/Ex Church behind us (at least for now).
Looking forward to a restful day pottering round the house and catching up with my life! :D

Thank God for his word, Larousse! More than once it kept us in the ministry when we began to look at circumstances instead of the Lord.

I will be praying for peace for him today.

Today: DH and I were both feeling nervous about the new pastor job. DH started to think that in spite of everything going fairly smoothly now, he would prefer to back out!! EEEEEK!

Before he could start to draft an email, I grabbed a Bible and read out to him Psalm 40, which is SO much God's word to us in this whole situation. God knows all of it, the desolate pit, the patience, the desperate cries, the people who seek to do us harm and point and say "aha!", the fact that we feel so poor and needy and inadequate...
And the call to proclaim God's word in the great assembly!

Phew! DH realized once again that God's word is stronger than his feelings about this post! and we both set off for the day convinced of God's call to us for this church.
I'm going to print it out and we can keep it handy to look at when we need it!!

Carolyn, I am so glad your pain is lessening with the prednisone and am praying that it will continue as you taper down on your dose.

Larousse! I am soooooo happy for you. The Lord is so faithful to work things out. Looking back we wonder why we were so afraid after we see how wonderfully the Lord has orchestrated everything. But thankfully he uses every experience we have like that to build us up.

Amen to your attitude of Gratitude today Claire. I am also thankful for the Lord's presence with us - even in the places where we feel overwhelmed and burdened, he is there and gives us the patience and strength we need to do what he wants us to do..

Today I am so thankful that my husband's new post as pastor has been confirmed; they are informing the board this evening, the church will have the announcement next Sunday, and on Oct 4th he will preach at the new church and they will have a vote, he needs a two-thirds majority, but so many have been rooting for him to arrive that this is just a formality! Official start date is Oct 5th.

And I'm so thankful to have found this group, with such an understanding bunch of ladies to talk to and find support!
I'm sure I'll have a zillion questions for you all when I start officially as a pastor's wife!

Today I am exceedingly grateful that the prednisone has done away with the vast majority of my arthritis & fibromyalgia pain. Tomorrow I begin to taper down on the prednisone and so I pray that doesn't allow any of the pain to return. We'll see!!

I'm also very grateful for this team which has done so much to encourage me through a truly dark stretch in my journey. Thanks to each one of you.

Blessings,
Carolyn

Grateful for each day that dawns. You see ..... as my DH says ..... I'm 9+ years past my "Use By " date!! In 2004, my drs. told us I couldn't live more than another 2 years. In 2011 (after a 40-day hospitalization), they told us it would be only a matter of weeks or maybe a month or two. I spent the next 15 months in hospice care at home! You see, I have a very rare liver disease which destroys the bile ducts and then the liver; only effective treatment is a liver transplant. Since I can't have anesthesia, that lets me out! But, it's OK .... for the last 14 years, God has blessed me with an unshakable sense of deep peace. When people ask me how I can be so happy, I tell them that everyone needs 2 simple things in their life -- a strong sense of faith in the Almighty, and a strong sense of humor! With those two things going for you, you can cope with anything life hands you!!

Blessings,
Carolyn

Not egotistic at all, Suzy! I love it when my three call me. I even love to babysit my youngest daughter's child when the daycare is closed so that makes me feel needed in spite f the fact that it does cause angina when I get overtired from sitting with her.


today I was able to work in my garden with out any repercussions of angina pain. Yay!

Today I am grateful that I have raised 4 children how still need me. I so often hear older parents complain that they are not needed or are called on for advice from their children. Yesterday was the day that all 4 called wanting my opinion on something. What are a blessing that they can call me, talk to me even on little things. I know this sounds egotist but it is a blessing to me.

Be a good steward. I need to take care of all that God has given me.

Today I'm grateful for a safe trip home from Gabby's house. I had a coal truck driving very close behind me for about 20 miles around the curvy roads today which kept me on edge so I finally pulled off and let him pass. Then I felt better!

Today I am grateful for my ability to multitask. Between at home job, at home work, and preparing for a meal tomorrow for the combined bible study group I have a mountain of tasks today.

Today I'm grateful for getting up early enough to make a dish for a carry-in luncheon this afternoon...and I used up potatoes I had sitting around!

Today I am grateful for the strength to live each day as it comes. I have been babysitting for the last few days and though I am tired, it has been a good time spent with my little one!

Claire, we live right next to our church and get invited to a lot of family events when people use the fellowship hall for showers and such. I totally get what you're talking about. Dan and I try to put in an appearance for a few minutes to extend our well-wishes , but don't usually stay for the whole thing when that happens.

Today I'm grateful that I get to help with my 2 year old granddaughter. She is such a joy and always makes us laugh with her antics. It is draining on me when she's here for the whole weekend, but I am definitely glad to be a part of her upbringing.

How exciting Suzy! And along with Bonnie, I'm so glad you had helpful sales people!

Today I'm feeling grateful for you ladies, and very thankful I got some things done today despite going to a baby shower and enduring two very lengthy games. I don't usually think this, but that's an hour and a half I'll never get back. Ha! Still, grateful to have been there. God is good, all the time.

Today I am grateful to some very wonderful sales women at stores as I struggled the last three days to find a dress, shoes, and undergarments for my son's wedding next month. 18 stores in 3 days and I finally have it all. There were some tremendous women who helped and kept bringing different sizes, looks etc. till I will look good. Stress is over for this piece of the wedding.

Be a good steward. I need to take care of all that God has given me.

I am thankful that the Lord gives me the strength to take care of a very busy toddler granddaughter. I am totally wiped out when she leaves, but nothing a good night's sleep won't fix. Praise the Lord!

It's a good thing too - she's coming again on Saturday!!!!

Today I am thankful that the rain stopped in the early evening so I could walk and get my 10K steps in for the day. I'm also grateful for coffee that woke me up after being so tired from swimming with my sister and brother-in-law today!
