Thankful Thursday.....

Any/all of you are welcome to go back to Tuesday's post and read the comments about "To Blog or Not to Blog".  I got some precious responses.  Since then, I was reminded as to just why I blog.  It's not to brag on what I do (and if I do show something I've made, it's only because of talent HE blessed me with). 
 I blog simply because of HIM. 
I have several new blogging friends and one of them has shown me a couple of times lately that HE speaks to both of us about the same things sometimes. (thanks, Ms. Linda)  
Or, I'll get a comment from somebody telling me that they're so glad I posted something because they needed it, too. And, the same thing happens to me.
I might be struggling with something and one of you will write about a similar thing you're going through and it just speaks to my heart.   When I get to the point where I'm just not sure what to do, HE always sends me encouragement and confirmation from my blogging friends......
especially, those who leave such heartfelt comments.

Does this mean I'll continue to blog EVERY.SINGLE.DAY?
I don't know!
I'm just gonna see what He lays on my heart to do.

In the meantime, I want to share one of my very favorite Bible verses.
This is one that nearly always comes to mind when I think I'll just throw in the towel and give it all up.....
before y'all talk me down off the ledge!

Thank you, precious blogging Friends!
I feel like I know each and every one of you personally.....
and I do thank God for you.....
and pray for you!

Breathing in Grace,

    1. Happy Thursday, sweet Friend. I bet you're counting down the minutes before y'all leave for the beach. I would be. And, yes....it would be heavenly to sit on a porch with you and drink coffee!!! Ahhhhh!!! :)

  4. Deb, you echo my thoughts exactly! If I can touch others with what I post, then I am blessed as well. I have to say that I am in love with your header! I do love sunflowers and yours just pops! Have a blessed day.
