Yay! Thankful Thursday. . .my new favorite day of the week.
I am joining Sonya @ Truth 4 the Journey

Iris @ Grace Alone

Iris' theme this week is Trials. . . UPDATE: hmmm, for some reason, this morning, I got to Iris's post from 2 weeks ago, instead of todays. And, I wondered why the McLinky was closed this morning. Now, I know I was on the wrong one. . .but I guess it was the right one for me! 2 weeks ago was when I was without internet and unable to post.

James 1:2-4 (She posted verses 2 and 3 in ESV, I'm posting 4 also, using NIV.)
Consider it pure joy my (sisters), when ever you face trials of many knids, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

I am also thankful for "trials of many kinds". I so want to be mature and complete, not lacking anything!

This week, I am thankful for. . .

1. the "drama" at work that is definitely developing perseverance, and hopefully maturity and better relationships.

2. the support from the school administration. (hopefully).

3. the help that I have gotten from paraprofessionals.

4. the privilege of getting to teach special children and the experience of working with their parents and teachers.

5. the joy of being a team with my husband, the love that he and our children give me.

What are you thankful for this week?


  1. I, too, am so thankful for the love of my husband and children. I am a very blessed woman!

    Hope you have a great Thursday!

  2. Amen and amen...

    Blessings to you!!
