Thankful Thursday On Friday

I can't believe I missed Thankful Thursday. I was so worried about my friends Dwight and Linny that it completely slipped my mind.

So this Thankful Thursday I am thankful for prayer. What do people who don't believe in God do when they are at very hard times in their lives? Really, I don't know the answer to this. I have been a Christian my entire life so really what do they do?

There are times in my life where I honestly don't think I could have made it to the next day if it weren't for prayer.

I only know Linny and her family through the internet and I have talked to her on the phone but she has been such a mentor to me. I was at a place in my life where I was needing challenged and Linny did that. Linny not only challenged me but has challenged Chris big time.

Linny has taught Chris and I soooo much about prayer and I sure hope she writes a book on it someday. She has taught us to be very specific in our prayers and to ask for exactly what we want or need. She has taught us how to fast and have a clear heart before God before fasting.

Yesterday I was hurting so bad for my friends Dwight and Linny and their family. Even though I don't know them as physical friends that I can spend actual time with, they are very dear to our hearts. The only thing I could do for them was pray.

If it weren't for prayer I would go crazy!

OK, now to totally change the subject. My friend Jeanette posted on her blog yesterday about these bows that a lady is making to raise money for her adoption. I went and checked out the blog and oh my goodness they are beautiful bows. I have never bought many bows for the girls because they are expensive and well we are pretty frugal people.

This lady is having a HUGE sale to get rid of her existing inventory and the bows are half price. If you put your button on your blog you get and extra 10% off. I ask Chris if I could order some bows because it was for a good cause and he told me to go for it. Well, I put in a very big order for bows last night. If you have a little girl in your life you need to go check out these bows and do it quick and get in on the sale. I put her button on my sidebar that you can go click on, Sara Beth Bows.

I am so excited about getting bows for the girls!

Standing with you in believing for a full recovery for Dw. My heart aches for them--they have endured so much this year.
