"What are you thankful for today? Stop by Sonya's blog, Truth 4 The Journey, to find out how to share your gratitude and see what others are thanking God for today."

My thankful list today:
1. I am thankful for VACATION! We went to the Great Wolf Lodge (Williamsburg, VA) for the past few days. Wow, there is nothing quite like getting away from it all. (I am thankful as a Christian that even when I can't physically get away, in my quiet times with Christ I find a retreat from all of life's problems and cares!)

2. I am thankful for divine opportunties. I had an opportunity on vacation to talk to a young girl, who was raised in the church, but is now questioning what she believes. I told her we all must decide what we believe and who we will follow, no matter our background. Sharing how I met Christ reminded me of how AWESOME He is and how He is working in other's lives even when we can't see it.

3. I am thankful for moving. It is looking more and more like our friends may buy our home. My husband is in between jobs and more than likely will not work here in Richmond when he graduates from school in the fall. This will set us up to move quickly and easily when the time comes. All of this transition has helped me grow closer to the Lord and my sweet husband.

4. I am thankful for this semester being OVER! YES! I teach part-time and yesterday I gave my last exam. I am thankful for my job, as I love it and it is great part-time work.

5. I am thankful for water. I love the water. I loved the waterpark on vacation. I love that we will join a pool somewhere once we know where we will be living. I love to swim.
God bless you today everyone! Have a supernatural day in Christ.


  1. My husband loves the water and is a fantastic swimmer. I on the other hand, enjoy it from a distance. ;-)

    So with the summer break, what will you enjoy doing or participating in?


  2. You are a precious young woman! I just love to stop by your blog. You always give my heart a smile :)

  3. Love the list, I love to swim as well and am so thankful summer is upon us.

  4. I'm praying in agreement for you and your husband in the sale of your home and your move and the other things you shared. You are such a precious soul Laurie. I'm so thankful we are both children of GOD.

    Love you.

  5. We went to Great Wolf Lodge up here in the Pocono's back in January. It was a blast! It was fun to watch it snowing outside while we were in the water park!

    Are you going to stay in VA?

    Working part-time in education is wonderful, isn't it? I don't even feel like a working mom because I only work half days, get about 2 weeks off at Christmas and have the summer off.

    Blessings to you!

  6. I enjoyed reading your thankful list! We have Great Wolf Lodge up here in Wisconsin at the Dells also! A very popular place:)

    Thanks for stopping by my place!

    Happy TT!

  7. Laurie, you have a beautiful attitude. You are so right about change -nothing draws us closer to the Lord than those uncertainties in our lives. He is the only one who never ever changes. Nope. Not one little bit. Isn't that comforting?

  8. Thankful for moving! You are a better woman than I! I hate moving... I can get on board with the water park vacation though!

  9. Laurie, enjoyed your visit and am happy for all your positives. I am grateful to have a place where I can blog, meet new people and learn new things. Thank you.

  10. Hi Laurie,
    I hope everything works out for you with the move and work etc.
    I think I'd get hypothermia if I went swimming here still. lol Positively LOVE to go to Pensacola and swim in thee ocean though.
    Happy TT on Friday. heehee

  11. Hey precious -- I came back over to congratulate you on the Beautiful award giving to you by Kat at Heart2Heart.

    Love ya.
