This week's theme on Thankful Thursday is relationships. I have been tremendously blessed with the relationships in my life.
~ I am thankful first and foremost for my relationship with God. His love and faithfulness are the true constant in my life. No matter where I have been, or how horribly I have failed at being faithful to Him, He has never failed me.
(click play on the very first song of my playlist to hear this song)
How deep the Father's love for us
How vast beyond all measure,
That He would give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
Bring many sons to glory
Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocing voice,
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I knoww that it is finished
I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast inJesus Christ
His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
~ I am thankful for my precious husband. I am thankful that he is committed to our marriage and to me and that he is willing and very good at working on our relationship.

~ My sweet, fun and hillarious blog and Internet friends. I know that we may never meet face to face on this earth, but their friendship is no less genuine, and their encouragment and comraderie is just as meaningful.
