Thankful Thursday for April 21, 2011

My family is in the middle of moving today, tomorrow, and Saturday. We have so much to be Thankful for. I am so thankful the Lord heard  my prayers for the past many months and He answered them in His time and according to His will.

I asked my son a little while ago what were some of the things that he was Thankful for. He told me that he was thankful for a new house and for his parents and that we found Dizzy.  Dizzy is Monkey's little stuffed beagle that we bought him when he was three years old. This little dog is so pitiful, she has one eye missing (I have it put up) and her little black faux leather nose has a hole in it. But she is so LOVED by us.
I remember about a year and half ago, I was bagging up somethings that needed to be stored. Well, Dizzy jumped into the bag with the other stuffed animals. For the longest I thought that I had accidentally donated her. Every time I thought about the dog, I prayed that she would still be here. Two weeks ago, when I was sorting through things to keep and donate, I found a little bag pushed in the corner way in the back of the closet. When I opened the bag and looked in, I found Dizzy. I jumped for joy, I was so excited about finding that little dog. The Lord answered a prayer!
No matter what is going on in our lives, we have something to be thankful for.
