a study of thanks

On this Thursday morning, I've been reflecting upon how thankful I am for the Bible study we've been hosting on Wednesday evenings for several reasons.

*Looking over the group of people attending, we have several couples attending who are newer to our church or who we really don't know well. It's been fun getting to know them and I'm thankful for the friendships that have been developing over the past several weeks.

*Every Wednesday we have no choice but to get the main part of our house cleaned. Woo hoo! I am so thankful to wake up on Thursday mornings to a house which is still looking orderly and clean. Of course, once everyone wakes up and the day gets going that orderly clean thing will fade in a hurry, but it's nice to soak it in early on Thursday mornings knowing that in a week it'll happen again!

*The Bible study we are doing right now is based upon The Peace Maker by Ken Sande. I'm thankful to be learning Biblical principles which help in a variety of conflict type situations. Each week there is something that *clicks* with a current situation that needs to be addressed and the principles *stick* so much better when applied in real life.

Our small group Bible study will come to an end in early November, but perhaps these reminders of thankfulness will be an encouragement to do another one!

What are you thankful for in your garden today? If you need some encouragment, go visit others who are expressing hearts of thankfulness on this day right HERE

My very favorite kinds of study are in the small group atmosphere. It's lovely to learn and bond with other Christians in that way!
