Thankful Thursday

Saint Mary's Lake At Sunrise, Glacier National Park

We live about 6 hours from this beautiful spot in Glacier Park, and I am sorry to say we don't get there very often. But this photo of the sunrise at St. Mary's Lake shows me God's mighty power shining through the clouds as the sun rises over the mountains. As I see this, I am so very thankful for the gift of His Son, who rose from the grave and is seated at the right hand of the Father. Imagine what that must have looked like! I am so thankful that the SON shines in the hearts of all who love Him and follow Him! In my family, this includes my husband and me, and our daughters and their husbands. I pray each day for our grandchildren, that they may come to a relationship with the SON, and I praise His name.

I am also very thankful that I didn't have the headaches today that I often get due to a couple of chronic physical conditions I have. When I do have them and some of the other pain I get, I can be thankful that it draws me closer to God, who has proven over and over that His promise to never leave me nor forsake me is always true.

Thank you to Iris for hosting Thankful Thursday this week at her blog Grace Alone.

Laurie, that is absolutely beautiful. I didn't know you suffered from headaches and hope you've been better these past few days. So thankful with you for a family that is following after God with you and I too know how important it is to pray for our grandchildren. Blessings to you.

Laurie, someone who came from your blog link won the giveaway today. Her name is Cheryl. I'm sure she is thankful for your link! I just wanted you to know I'll be sending you that little promise box later in the week. Thanks again, Laurie!

Yea, Cheryl! Yes, Maxine, she will enjoy it. She is a very good friend. I look forward to receiving the promise box. Have a wonderful day, Maxine! said...

I hope your headaches go away forever. I get headaches daily:( So I guess you could say I feel your pain. I love that you are getting such warm weather!!! It is snowing here but is not sticking. So we can enjoy the prettiness of it and not have to clean it up:) I'll take that.
