Thankful Thursday: Week 14

This week has been full of ups and downs with my grandpa but we are still thankful for the many small blessings God bestows on our family every day...here are a few from this week:

We are thankful...
  1. ...that Esther Grace is doing incredibly well! If you remember, she is the sweet little baby who was born exactly THREE MONTHS EARLY (i know! crazy!) to our college friends. If you'd like to read her most recent post, you can find it here--full of good news that will leave you smiling!


  2. ...for all my sweet friends from all over the world who are praying for my grandpa. My dad reported that within minutes of me and the twin sending updates via email, blog posts, facebook, and twitter, my Grandpa started breathing easier. God is powerful and hears our prayers!


  3. ...for strong Christian friends that walk with Christ and listen to the Holy Spirit in such a way that they inspire "all who come behind them to be faithful"


  4. ...{warning: this "thanks" is L-A-M-E!} that Jillian picked Ed in the Final Rose Ceremony. He was so my favorite from the first episode. YAY! {extra side note: No, i don't agree with everything they are doing from a moral/Christian stand point}




  5. ...for a generous friend from church who took time out of his day to walk through two houses with J. He helped J see the potential, see if they were worth fixing up, and basically acted as a personal home consultant! Thank you Christopher!


  6. ...that we are actually beginning to look at houses! yay!


  7. ...for six (6) wonderful years of marriage that we will be celebrating this weekend (August 2nd). I love love love my husband!

SO glad that your Grandpa is breathing easier and that youa re comforted by our prayers.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!

Nothing sadder thana sick baby and nothing more exciting and able to bring tears to your eyes than a baby recuperating, miraculously. Thank you God for that healing and recuperation for Baby Esther!!
