It's Thankful Thursday and my friend Iris of Grace Alone is hosting this month.
I'm so thankful for a one week vacation. Friday was the last day of school at Rancho. Although Greg and I aren't going anywhere, it's nice to be together, visit with friends, and catch up.

Tomorrow I will get to see my friends Helen and Anna May. Although we now live closer to each other, it's been so long since we actually got together. That's what happens when you return to full time work, I guess.
I'm thankful for the gift card I received from the parents of the children in our preschool class. It was very kind of them and I was eager to get some long needed clothes for summer. So while I was at the Scottsdale Quarter, I was able to pick up a few things. It's been so long since I've gone shopping.
Iris wrote about peace in her Thankful Thursday post. In this world, peace is not something I would use to describe all that's going on now. Even in my own life, there's still so much uncertainty. But I'm thankful that despite all of this, I can have God's peace. I may not know what tomorrow will bring or where I'll be living several months from now. But I'm learning to trust that God loves me and has a purpose and plan for my life. I don't have to carry the burden. I'm learning to pray and ask for His direction. And then I'm slowly learning to listen and obey.
You can visit Iris at Grace Alone to join in.
Blessings and love,
