I had already planned to combine my Thankful Thursday post with a new meme hosted by Dayle @ A Collection of This and That. (her link is at the bottom of this post) Then, Lynn, who has hosted Thankful Thursdays for July, asked us to share a picture of something that inspires awe in our heart. How cool! I think this picture works well for both. It might not look simple, but I think it still fits the subject. Like Lynn, my family and I also appreciate all of God's creation so much! How awesome that God can make a beautiful waterfall in the middle of a small "mountain"! This picture is at a very special place for all of my family and me. I am thankful for the simple pleasure of God's beauty all around us. I am thankful for the simple pleasure of being a sponsor at a youth camp. I am thankful for the little ways God works in our lives daily, for the blessing overflowing, just as He promised!
Yesterday, I was looking for something very important that I needed to find to pass on to another teacher. I looked and looked, and couldn't find it. I sincerely prayed to God to help me find it, and I found it immediately!
I am thankful for friends and acquaintances and blogging buddies.
Of course, I am thankful for my family.
There is so much to be thankful for!

Psalm 106: 1
Hallelujah! Thank you , Lord! How good you are! Your love for us continues on forever. Who can ever list the glorious miracles of God? Who can ever praise him half enough?

What are you thankful for today? Join us in sharing our thankfulness this week by visiting and linking up with our hostess for the month of July-Lynn at "Spiritually Unequal Marriage" and our host, Greg at Greg's General Store and Dayle @ A Collection of This and That. Go here to link up with her.
You'll be glad you did!
It will bless your day to stop and be thankful for all of those simple pleasures in your life!

  10. HI Sandy,

    What an absolutely beautiful waterfall. It makes me want to just ump in. I am in awe of this photo and I bet if I were there in person and I would just fall to my knees in worship.


    Thank you and happy TT my friend, Lynn

  11. I had something similar... I had totally looked throughout the entire car for a missing piece to our GPS. The thought finally occurred to me to pray! I said, "Lord, if I find this... it will be completely because of you." Two seconds later, I found it.
