~Our Thirty Things for which we are Thankful~

Since November has 30 days...we made a list of 30 things for which we are thankful.  It was rather HARD to narrow it down...since God is SO GOOD to our family!
1. Jesus dying on the cross for our sins
2. The Bible...God's "Love Letter" to His children
3. Our Holiness Heritage
4. God's presence in Our lives
5. For my Sweetheart!  He's the BEST!! =) [He spoils LOVES me!=)]
6. For our dear Kimberly...she's my right hand lady.  She's so FUN to be around. She has a contagious laugh that she's had since she was tiny. =)
7. For our sweet Sarah.  She's a huge help too.  She's always looking around to see how/who she can help.
8. For our precious Noah.  Just a faithful quiet boy who LOVES to play cars...and still gives Mommy hugs!
9. For our adorable Elijah.  He will always be our "baby boy" and makes us laugh a lot.
10. For our surprise little Mary.  Jesus knew that she would bring a lot of joy to our lives!  She's so ornery and makes us laugh too!
11. Phillip is Thankful for ~ME~ his Wife =) and Our kids are thankful for their Mommy.
12. For Mommy's homemade goodies and good food to eat!
13. For Good health
14. For this nice breezy apt. to live in here in Argentina that Jesus provided for us RIGHT ON TIME!
15. For Kimberly's violin
~Elijah looking at my fresh strawberry pie with white chocolate...and a bucket of yummy ice cream. ALMOST more temptation than a little boy can handle. =)~
16. God's constant provisions for our family
17. For our PRECIOUS Family / Friends in the USA
18. For our PRECIOUS Friends in Colombia
19. That we get to live close to an Ocean here in Argentina
20. For our dog Bridget
21. Sarah is thankful for her family, and friends, her Bitty Baby, and toys.
22. Sarah is grateful that she got baptized.
23. I'm Thankful for our camera.  It's not very fancy, but Jesus helps us to take nice pics with it! =)
24. Noah is Thankful that he has a birthday each year.
25. For Sunshine
26. For my birthday pillows, another neat thing I hope to post about soon, =) and for a HUGE answer to prayer that Jesus just did for our family!
27. For each time that Jesus touches little Elijah and he gets better! (when he gets a cold it normally goes right into asthma problems. If you've never seen a little child gasping for's beyond description!)
28. For Elijah's toys.
29. For Christmas...the celebration of Jesus' birth.
30. For my blog...and all y' faithful readers, pray-ers, and commenters. =)

Every morning during our family devotions we each have to say what we are thankful for. I've thought about re-reading them at Thanksgiving, but it might be just a nice yearly keepsake. There are some rules, though. No repeats. We did say it there was a general Thank You, a specific would be acceptable.

That's good, Nicki. (Nice hearing from you!)
We do that in our family devotions as well. We normally take turns praying and Thanking the Lord for one or two things (I never can only stick to one or two. =)

It's good to always be in the habit of PRAISING our Wonderful Lord!! =)

Just stopping by to let you know we LOVE reading your blog posts. We look forward to them and read them word for word. Loved your recent birthday photos and the beautiful red coat! I usually read blogs via Google Reader, so I don't often comment, but just wanted you to know we're here, praying for your family often and enjoying your recipes! :-)

November is the month to be thankful and is so fitting that God allowed you to come into our family on that month. You said that Elijah will always be your baby boy (how can you be so sure) ;-) so now you understand that you will always be our baby girl, and we all are thankful for you. The picture of Elijah and your pie is so precious. I enjoyed your list and could see each little one making their additions. I miss the stage of life of those little girls in Phoenix, we had some fun times living close together as we did being near the Hausmans in Florida. Love from a thankful Moma
