“So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.” ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:11‬ ‭NLT

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!

Would you please do me a favour and write at least three things you are thankful for in my thankfulness journal. I know and believe in the power of sharing the good news. I have many times been able to turn around my own negative thinking by sharing the joy of others. I also know even when the storm is roaring and wild out there I always have some things in life I can keep focus on and be thankful for.
I Love these words from Paul who clearly knows the importance of community and how we can strengthen and help each other forward.

“Dear sisters, I close my letter with these last words: Be joyful. Grow to maturity. Encourage each other. Live in harmony and peace. Then the God of love and peace will be with you.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭13:11‬ ‭NLT

So I go first…

Today I am thankful for new beginnings, a fantastic church community, birthday gifts and the coffee my husband prepares for me every morning. I am also thankful for Juli’s gymnastics leader, Felix’s basketball coach and Oliver’s part time job.

Now it’s your turn. Thank you for keeping the journal going, flowing with Thankfulenss!

Faith Hope & Love

THANKFUL THANKFUL THANKFUL. I have just come back home from an amazing weekend in Sweden, City church-Örebro. My Husband started to talk on Friday evening for the youth about sex and dating. God loves his hungry wild and young people, who longs for living right before GOD- thank you GOD for showing up like you did. We had a marriage conference on Saturday. We met with incredible couples, smart and talented and beautiful couples, hungry to live a life right with God, but how easy it is to be caught up in the world and its way of living. GOD WAS JUST AMAZING IN HIS BEAUTY AND GLORY!!!!! He gave new hope, he brought life to dead marriages, He grade correction and direction where needed. THANKFUL THANKFUL THANKFUL. GOD YOU ALONE IS AWSOME!

Today I am grateful for the power of "sharing" - sharing about the good and the challenging things. I am also grateful that I have people in my life to share with. Last but not least, today I thought about how grateful I am for my warm winter boots. They keep me dry and warm in this time of snow and temperatures below zero!
