Friday Night Five #5

Would you not agree that being thankful is a matter of choice?

Every day we get up and make a choice whether we will be happy, grumpy, sad, joyful, angry, cheerful, resentful, or any one of many other moods. It is also true that each day we make a choice to be thankful or not.

I choose thankfulness!

And so, as with each Friday evening, I come home

think about my week and share just a few

of the many things that I have to be thankful for.

Tonight however, I am going to focus my thankfulness on one family.
1) This beautiful couple have known each other for 15 years.

God set a plan in motion and I am grateful for that plan.

2) This beautiful couple had a child together nearly 6 years ago.

I am eternally grateful for her.

3) This beautiful couple went their separate ways and it was very

difficult but I continue to be grateful for God's plans.


4) This beautiful couple became a real family December 5, 2009.

And Now...

5) This beautiful family is going to have another baby and

we all got to see her on ultrasound today

and she is perfect in every way.

(Well, at 12 weeks, 5 days they 'think' it is a she)

Considering Family With Great Joy

And Thankfulness,



  1. Yea!!!! What a great thankful son and his wife did that married because they had a baby on the way, divorced a year later and married 2 years later with no pushing from the parents and they had another baby already (yes...not quite the plan I had for my son) and celebrated one year of marriage that is doing pretty well. I am happy for you and your family.

    Love ya, Connie

  2. What a blessing! :) Marriages go through trials, like mine has. But, now that we have gotten through that huge trial our marriage is stronger than ever and God is in control of it now. Not our wordly emotional ways. It is amazing what God can heal and repair. :) Everything is possible through him.
