I got a car on Friday! I have been without a car for several months now. My husband has a Suburban that we get around in, but he uses that for work, so during the day I am without a car. Thankfully I don't have to work, so I don't have to go anywhere during the day. But it still makes life inconvenient. My husband just received his share of the profit for building a house, and we were able to use that money to get a used car for me. And the best part of all - it's paid for.
I'm so thankful for my family. My daughter was here visiting again this weekend. On Saturday all three kids were able to go shopping with me. It was so nice to be able to spend time together. I'm also thankful for the beautiful weather we had this weekend. I love spring!
As we were driving around yesterday, we saw several signs for a laptop sale at a local computer shop. My husband has been wanting to get a laptop to use at the office at church, so we stopped in. We were able to get two refurbished laptops for less than what we would have paid for one new one.
I got to play the piano yesterday for worship at church. It felt so good to play and worship! I'm thankful for people who are willing to share their God-given talents with others. I've had a very talented musician teach me how to play. I'm also thankful that I don't have to do things in my own strength; God is always with me.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
As I learned from VeggieTales, a thankful heart is a happy heart. What are you thankful for on this Monday?
