Posted in 2019, Courage or Courageous, Thankful Thursdays, Word of the Year

Thankful Thursday for January 3, 2019


Today I want to begin a list of things I am thankful for:

I want to begin with:

  1. I am thankful for my personal Lord and Savior, who died that I may have life.
  2. I am thankful for a husband who loves and cherishes me.  He is the love of my life and my best friend.  I am so blessed to have him in my life.
  3. I am thankful for our four children.  They bring life and laughter to our world.  From one moment to the next I do not know what to expect from them.
  4. I am thankful for our extended family and friends.  They bring untold blessings and joy to our life.
  5. I am thankful for the homeschooling the community we are part of online and those we have been privileged to know in person.


Yesterday, I began discussing my words for the year.  I began with delight, and now I want to move on to courage or courageous.  Here are some verses I found:

My first verse is from Joshua 1:7, which states, “Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.”  I am taking the verse from the King James Version of the Bible, which is our family’s version of choice.
My second verse is Psalm 27:14 – Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
My third verse for courage/courageous is Acts 28:15 – And from thence, when the brethren heard of us, they came to meet us as far as Appii forum, and The three taverns: whom when Paul saw, he thanked God and took courage.
So have you chosen a word for the year?  I would love to hear from you.


I am a wife and homeschooling mother of 4. I am a Christian who firmly believes that Jesus Christ died for my sins. We are a military family who just relocated from Pennsylvania to Texas. I enjoy Bible journaling, reading, crocheting, scrapbooking and quilting. I am beginning to attempt art journaling.
