A Week in Pictures...Adding to my OBS Blessed List

"Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ"
Ephesians 5:20

 This weird creature in God's Kingdom above made me think this week. 
In case you don't know, this is a cicada. He is from a particular brood, whom only shows up every 17 years. You can learn more about them here and here


With all my thinking, it became apparent that I am one extremely blessed woman. Therefore, for my OBS Blog Hop post this week, there will be additions and some reminders of my blessings.

He is so Handsome!
First, today is Sweetie and my 26th wedding anniversary.
He was able to get back from his business trip in time for our anniversary.

"Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift!"
2nd Corinthians 9:15

Second, I got to spend time with my daughter and Boo.
Aren't they adorable walking together on this path?

"Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!"
Psalm 100:4

She was working on the "big" hill and stopped to encourage us to "come on" :-)

Third, watching Boo enjoy God's creation. Her grandma (my Aunt) helped her hold him. 
She is so much braver than me. 

"And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name"
1st Chronicles 29:13

Fourth, Girl's Movie Night...but I didn't get any pictures of that. 

Fifth, studying the Bible and participating in OBS Bible studies.

"And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." Colossians 3:15-17

I am a truly blessed woman and God takes such good care of me. 

How have you been blessed this week? Remember a blessing is anything that brings you closer to God. 

"Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
1st Thessalonians 5:18
