Thankful For Daughter

Thankful Thursday...thank God for little girls

Mother/Daughter relationships are important. I just finished talking with my only daughter (29 years old+) on the phone. We have a wonderful open and loving relationship. We are very different: I'm the creative right brain cluttering spontaneous one, and she is organized, linear thinking, left brain super smart one. We maximize our relationship with honor for our differences and making sure we operate in our strengths together. We lovingly kid one another on our weaknesses.

My mom and I didn't have this trusting open relationship and I do know to thank God that my daughter is my best friend. I can truly say if I was left on a deserted island she is one of the people I would want to be there if I could choose.

Yes, God, thank You when it looked like I was barren and would never have a child You blessed me with this wonderful, beautiful daughter. Thank You, God, when a life threatening situation hit her 12 years ago You swept her up in Your arms and saved her life. Oh, God, thank You for my daughter....thank You.

Daughters--wonderful reasons to be thankful!
And thank you, thank you for taking the time to encourage me. I've kept that post in my inbox to reread.

Thrive In Christ

Who I Am In Christ by Neil Anderson

For several months we will center on this book to pursue Thriving in our Christian journey.

Neil challenges us with: "Do you know who you are in God's eyes? We are no longer products of our past. We are primarily products of Christ's work on the cross. Who we are determines what we do.

You are not who you are in Christ because of the things you have done, you are in Christ because of what He has done. He died and rose again so that you and I could live in the FREEDOM of His love."

That's just the introduction. More to follow.
