Thankful Thursday! January 4, 2018

Happy New Year, y’all!!

Thank you, Lord for:

A new year, a fresh start!

Whitty finally playing again! 

Lexi coming to pilates with me and then to Coffee Bean with the girlfriends. 

Taking care of Ren while he was sick. 

Lex is such a comfort and strength to my Rendon!

Great little Pilates class at YW Sat morning!

Cycle class with Gil.


 “Don’t you love being around children who are wiggling, squirming, jumping up and down, and shouting for you? I do! I believe God does too.

In fact, I believe God wants us to exhibit that same childlike joy as we worship and enjoy Him. I’m not talking about “feel-good” emotionalism that fluctuates with circumstances. I’m talking about deep-down joy that bubbles up out of a grateful heart that knows and loves Jesus. That is the kind of heart that is instructed to rejoice in the Lord.

Happiness depends on something. Joy depends on Someone”

by Sarah Trollinger, “Women of Faith Devotional Bible” 


 “Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous;

And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!”

PSALM 32:11


“Rejoice always.”



“I will greatly rejoice in the LORD,

My soul shall be joyful in my God;

For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation

He has covered me with the robe of righteousness.”

ISAIAH 61:10


“This is the day the LORD has made;

We will rejoice and be glad in it.”

PSALM 118:24”
