Thursday Thanks Tank #72
I'm going to get right into the that filling up this week, because God has so abundantly blessed me that I can't hold back.

That doesn't mean my week has been bump-free, but I have seen Him at work. Here's how:

1. New Friend: A lady in our Sunday school class has reached out to me and to DP in a warm and loving way. We did something in return for her kindness, and now we're headed to her house for dinner on Sunday. What a blessing!

2. Closure: I've had an open wound in my heart for a couple of weeks, and it was good to have closure this week. Not necessarily in the way I would have liked, but I am accepting it as God's hand anyway. He knows what I need.

3. Cool Mornings: Ahhhhhhhh! How nice to be able to get back out and enjoy neighborhood walks with my children. I am drinking it all in, because fall can't be far behind this cool spell!

4. Aha Moments: I've been reading lots of posts by homeschooling moms recently, and I have found so much wisdom and encouragement to re-think some of my methods. I plan to inject more fun and joy into our schooling journey. It's so easy to fall back on the way I was schooled when I am stumped for ideas. I needn't do that anymore!

5. Routine: Sometimes a welcome comfort. I am enjoying the routine set before us right now.

6. Surprises: My dear MIL(ove) sent us this game this week as surprise for the kids. They loved it, and it's even gotten this mama up and dancing to earn my "cast cards."

7. Bargains: How I love a good bargain! We went to a local thrift store and found some wonderful things this week. The "goodie" of the day by far was one of these for a mere quarter. My children were beside themselves thrilled, which kind of made the $2.99 sleeping bag seem like an extravagance.

8. God's Word: How I love this book by Beth Moore. I am reading/praying through it right now, and it is touching my life in a myriad of ways.

9. Life: Amy's death this week helped to lend some much-needed perspective for me. I am grateful for another day to breathe without effort, to walk unassisted, and to hold close those I love dearly.

10. You: If you regularly read this blog, or if this is the first time you've stumbled by a place Without Fear, I am glad and grateful you've come.

May the Lord be at work filling up your tank today! If you want to take the button to your site and make your own list, please feel free!! If you want to leave me a comment on how God is choosing to fill your tank -- I'd love it!!

Have a great "thanks-filled" day of intentional gratefulness.

Realizing I lurk too much at your site and I need to comment more.

You like the game, huh? I may have to break down and get it. I don't think my kids know it exists, but they do like the movies. :D

Praise God for being able to be thankful! I've posted mine (at the bottom of a very long post!)...

My list is up, too!

I had some closure this week too, Peach. It does feel good. And I so agree with you about the cool mornings. And evenings!

Your "thanks" list is so nice. Isn't it amazing how much we're all going to miss Amy, even though we never actually met her? Such a sad, sad loss. But I'm happy for her. She fought so hard. And in the end, I think she won. I feel sad for her family but when I think of her, happy and healthy and running around in heaven, it makes me smile.

I love Thursdays at your place. Your thank tanks point my heart to where it should have been in the first place.

Making a new friend in real life is always an exciting and wonderful thing!

These cool morning have been a blessing - that fresh, clean feeling when I walk out the door. (It's the darkness at a time when it was light that I'm trying to get used to seeing...)
