Thankful Thursday

It’s been a while since I posted a Thankful Thursday entry. I have no reason not to be thankful at all because God has been good to me. There maybe some hardship every now and then but still God is good all the time.

For this week, I would like to thank my Father in Heaven for the following:

1. My dad celebrated his 73rd birthday last Saturday. No big celebration just us, his immediate family, the grandkids sang his birthday song and the granddaughter blew his cake. It was a great day! Thank you Lord for giving him another year.

2. For the provision till the next payday which is tomorrow. God has been faithful to our every single need.

3. I am also thankful for my boss who understood and allowed me to join my husband in his next mission trip and that means leaving office for almost six weeks. Instead of resigning he said I could I just take that as vacation. Praise God!!

4. For the ministry-I would like to thank God for whatever He will let us do this year, right now I have something in my heart but me and hubby are still praying for it. I am still waiting for His word.

So there is my list for this week, I will again be busy this coming week but I hope I always find time to do this weekly meme as I have time searching for cheap and nice eye creams or beauty products there is. Sometimes I even have time to play stuff at facebook so I hope I will not forget to do this.

What are you thankful for this week my blog friends? Share it with all the thankful ladies at LYNN's blog.

There is hope-Haiti

I know most of you by now have heard about the Haiti earthquake that devastated almost whole of the capital city of Haiti.

I just showed my dear husband the pictures and videos a while ago and watching videos in you tube makes me even more sad especially reading some of the comments. Some questioned the existence of God, some even said harsher words. Very very sad.

I know it is hard to comprehend why God would allow this kind of tragedy but who can explain God's mind?

Our small country has been hit by tragedies also last year but I am thankful that our people never questioned God and our people still believed that yes there is God in spite of these disasters.

I hope I can do something to help in my own little way, I hope those who can would help, I hope people would be more sensitive to the need of the others and stop thinking about themselves for a while, for all we know even as thousand of people there are trying to fight for their lives others are thinking about the best wrinkle creams they will buy.

I hope people will still believe that there is God and that HE is still in control.

I hope that victims will still see hope amidst this tragedy.

I can only pray and hope.
