Thankful Thursday! February 2, 2017

 Thank you, Lord, for:

Beautiful blue sky and sunshine after the rain!

Coaches who care about my son!

Long lunch with Quinny. Great conversations!

My son comes in after I was in bed to give me a hug and say good night...and let me pray for him.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’—

Wonderful engagement party!

The growth and beauty that God faithfully brings out of the trials!!ย 


"In north Georgia where my family and I live, the landscape displays tall Georgia pine trees. While the stately tree is beautiful, during even the mildest storm our yards and streets are littered with tree limbs.

The landscape in south Georgia is different, though. Along the balmy coast stands the stately palm tree. This tree is not the least bit moved by the threat of strong winds. You see, the palm treeโ€™s trunk and deep root system allow it to bend but not break. It possesses great resistance and resilience, even in the fiercest storm.

When the Word of God is in you, you donโ€™t have to worry about lifeโ€™s storms. You can even lie down at night and rest peacefully, knowing that God is in control. Your heavenly Father will be up all night, so you, my friend, might as well get some sleep.
