Thankful Thursday

Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a devouring fire.
Hebrews 12:28

This week's blessings...

1. God's creation. I thought we still had a couple weeks until the prime of the season but over the weekend we went for a drive and the trees were all just beautiful! We even stopped to take a few pictures.
2. Today's medicine. Eli had his 15-month vaccinations this past week, and I'm thankful for these medical advancements so that we don't have to worry about dying of these diseases and viruses.

3. Healthy pregnancy. Everything is going smoothly and I'm feeling really great, and for that I am so thankful.

4. Visits. My mom is flying in later today and staying until Monday, and we are just sooo excited!

5. Hobbies. Over the weekend I finally found fabric to make a small blanket for my baby girl! And just last night I finished it already!

6. Hubby. I had some troubles with the corners on my baby blanket. There was just a tiny bit of raw edge exposed and I was worried about it fraying. I couldn't figure out what to do but Hubby came to the rescue with his great idea that the satin edge might be plasticy enough that putting a flame to it might melt it just enough to keep it from fraying. So we tried it on a test piece and it worked! And my blanket it now complete! Thanks, honey! I love your creative fixes!

What are you thankful for this week! Come join us over at Crystal's as she is guest-hosting Thankful Thursday for us!
