{Link up your own Thankful Thursday post below...}

This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) Organization. with pretty containers and lots & lots of labels. I recently organized our food storage area... it was a major undertaking. We basically went from absolutely no pantry what-so-ever, to a beautiful shelf system for all of our everyday food items. I couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out. Want to see more?? You can see all of the details in my guest post over at Bird & Branch Redesign! (Yes, that was a shameless plug:)

2) Final payments. I'm pretty sure this has been on my Thankful Thursday list before... but paying off debt is ALWAYS exciting. Especially when it's that last and final payment on a credit card. We were able to pay off a card this week with the hard-earned money we made from Ebay recently!! Such.a.good.feeling. Now... let's see... what else can we sell...

3) Redemption. {image} Lance and I are participating in Redemption Groups again this weekend. Confused about what Redemption Group is? You can read about my first experience here. This time, Lance and I are going though as apprentices... as we continue to learn how to better care and counsel others in the gospel. It is such a powerful weekend and I am excited to see how the Lord works both in and through His children. If you have a moment, please say a prayer for us this weekend... please pray that this would be a very freeing weekend for all involved... that God would gently break down walls and barriers, some of which have been up for a very long time.

I always love reading all of the Thankful Thursday link-ups each week... and last week there were several good ones... But there seemed to be a "health" theme going on last week. Jennifer, from Too Goodin to be True, was asking for prayer for her grandmother's health. Her grandmother is also her shopping buddy, which I love. Candice, from Where Nothing Good Comes Easy, has a little one that has been under the weather lately, but J is getting healthier by the day! And then Sarah, over from The Fontenot Four, had the sweetest post about her daughter Peyton and her health. It really put things in perspective for me. While we might not always see the "good" in things initially, there is always something to be grateful for.
