Thankful for Blessings - March 30

I love Wednesdays because it is the day I join my special friend, Judy, in this thankful meme at her inspiring blog, A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings. In this meme we give thanks for the five things we are most thankful for this past week and then link to Judy's blog. Be sure to also check out her website when you visit! Thank you, Judy, for helping me keep an attitude of gratitude!
Some of my blessings this week -
1. Lent - thank you, Jesus, for this time of Lent, this time of renewal and repentance and lives filled with prayer and thoughts of You.
2. Faith - thank you, Jesus, for the gift of faith. It is a beautiful gift, one that has helped keep me going through some tough times.
3. Blogging buddies - thank you, Jesus, for my blogging buddies and for their support in all I do and for their prayers. They are all in my prayers as well.
4. Love of writing - thank you, Jesus, for giving me the love of writing and for leading me to write for you and about you and to encourage others on their spiritual journey.
5. My family - thank you, Jesus, for my whole family and for helping my grandson to start crawling this week! And of course, since visitors to my blog have not seen him nearly enough lately, here is a great picture!

A joyful baby is a joy to all. Children are such a blessing. If only more people understood that and really treasured them.
