WELCOME TO THANKFUL THURSDAY!
I am so glad that you have found us. This is the place that many of us gather each week and give praise and thanks for all that God has blessed us with. I hope that you will stick around and share with us what is on your grateful heart today...
I love watching my daughter interact with my husband, her daddy. Even at the age of 13, she enjoys curling up on his lap as he sits in the recliner. They will many times sit like this, while watching TV, even though she has outgrown his lap. It doesn't matter ... they just love their cuddle time.
It always brings a smile to my heart when I see this or the times that her daddy just gives her some money for no reason or what joy I feel when I hear that sweet little voice of my teen daughter asking her daddy for something and he most certainly cannot refuse her.
One of the reasons it brings me utter joy to watch this is because as a young girl I did not have this experience. I did not have an earthly father who bragged on my accomplishments and who encouraged me to be all that I can be. (read part one of my testimony here!) Every girl should have a daddy that does all of these things and MORE! She should feel like a princess.
Did you know that no matter what your circumstances are with your earthly father...(good, bad or no remembrance) that there is a Father who adores you. He never takes His eyes off of you. He loves you like no other father loves his daughter.
Today, on Thankful Thursday, I am so grateful for this truth - the truth that we are princesses! His princesses. We are God's daughters!
God, my Father has such a dream for my life, one far greater than what I could possibly dream. When God looks at His children, He sees someone whom He passionately loves. He sees someone He cares about, and He sees someone He is extremely proud of!
"And remember, each one of us is given only one life. Your days on earth are not a dress rehearsal so that you can come back and try again. Every life counts. Your life counts. Heaven is watching to see what you will do with the life you have been given." - SHEILA WALSHIsn't it awesome that God has a big lap that we can just crawl up upon and just have "cuddle time" with our Heavenly Father anytime that we choose to.
