Dual Posts:Thankful Thursday

I'm sure that some of you noticed that I didn't post anything in either blog yesterday. That was because I was not up to it emotionally. I did contact one of my best friends via email about it and was sent some real encouragement back.

I figure if I didn't post today, some would get concerned since I have some real super friends who stop by here. So as I was showering this morning, I come up with the idea, actually I ripped it off, I mean borrowed it, from the Cleveland Plain Dealer, of Thankful Thursday. I am starting this at 4am my time, and hope to have it posted during my morning break so it will be up before my regular readers take their strolls through the "bloggerhood". And it will be on both blogs.

First, I am thankful that I have good friends who read these blogs, those who have been with me from the start, in August, 2006, to those who who have started reading recently. Your comments brighten my day.

I am also thankful for the job I have even though it's not my dream job and it's 46 miles from my house.

But I'm also thankful that I have reliable transportation to get me there, even if it is a two toned(blue and rust) 1989 Toyota.

I'm thankful that I have a home to go to at night.

I'm thankful that over the years I have always had enough food to eat, to the point I need to lose weight.

I'm thankful that I have those at home who care about me.

I'm thankful that we had enough extra money to eat out yesterday, even if it was Wendys.

Because I am thankful that an old friend of the family followed us in just to say "hi".

I'm thankful that the weekend is coming up, and Rittman has their homecoming game on Friday, and that we have a show to go to Saturday.

I'm thankful God gave a big booming voice and that I can use it to help 44 student musicians.

And that the Rittman Marching Band gives me a good product that makes it easy for me to yell about.

I'm thankful that I have some singing ability, because due to some people not being in church this past Sunday I was asked to lead the singing.

Remember the Bible says that there is power in praise. Start your own "Thankful Thursday" list. It's a very easy post to do because once you start the ideas flow freely.

To Pilgrim and Frasypoo,

I enjoy the privilege of being able to fellowship on line.

And I'm also thankful that we have a small group of bloggers getting together, along with the others who comment on our blogs, who don't take for granted what everyday faith can do for those around us.
