Thankful Thursday

Yay!!  It's Thankful Thursday and I'm really late getting to this post.  I guess I should be thankful that we're on Spring Break and I can sleep late.  I wasn't really planning to sleep this late!!  Here are my 5 for this week.
  1. I'm thankful that we have been blessed many times in the past week.  We have some financial things that we need to take care of and we have had some small blessings toward that.
  2. I'm thankful that most things that I throw together in a crockpot usually work.   Yesterday, I had some Mild Italian Sausage to use.  So, I threw that in and let it cook a little bit, cut it up, and then threw in 2 cans of Great Northern Beans, (1) 29 oz. can of diced tomatoes, 8 oz. of sliced mushrooms, 2 medium yellow onions(sliced) and some garlic powder.  It was yuuuummy!!  And full of vitamins and fiber.  Although, because of the Italian sausage, I'm sure it had a lot of fat too.  But, that's what made it even more yummy.  :)  My husband even asked me what type of mushrooms they were, because he thought the mushrooms were yummy.  We ate it over Whole Wheat Penne.
  3. I'm thankful that we still have 4 more days until Spring Break is over.
  4. I'm thankful that the sun is out today.
  5. I'm thankful that God is going to give me the will-power to quit sugar today.  I'm reading a book right now that said that we shouldn't call it will-power because that means we're trying to do it all by ourselves.  We should call it God-power.  So, I guess I'm going to pray that he gives me the God-power to quit sugar.  Everyone wish me luck! 
Usually I put a Bible scripture about thankfulness, but today I'm going to post a scripture about finding comfort in God.  I'm still praying for the people in the South who were affected by the Tornadoes.

 "Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter,
you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth
you will again bring me up.  You will increase my honor
and comfort me once more."--Psalm 71:20-21 (NIV)

I hope that everyone is able to find at least one thing for which to be Thankful today!
Don't forget to come back after 10 PM tonight to join the "Sit and Relax" weekend hop!!!
