Thankful Thursday is my Jam.

Please visit Truth for the Journey if you would like to participate in Thankful Thursday. Here is my list for this wonderful Thursday:

1. I am thankful for my youngest son passing the 6th grade. He did really well but it came down to the wire in one subject. I was actually praying for a D in that one subject but he ended up with a C which is wonderful in my book. He never ceases to amaze me. I have trouble looking at a 6’ boy and remembering that he is only 12.

2. I am thankful for all the aches and pains that I have right now. Last night I spent several hours weedwacking our yard so I went to bed really tired. This morning despite my aches and pains, I still went to the gym just like always. I managed to get in a pretty good workout. I am still on my way to better health and even though the pounds aren’t leaving me, the inches are.

3. I am thankful for all the rain that we have had recently. Even though some people have gotten more than they wanted, we really need it. It is nice not having to water the plants every day and it saves on electricity. Last night I heard that Georgia is no longer in a drought emergency. That is wonderful news.

4. I am thankful for my jams. For those of you who aren’t “with it” like I am, Jams are songs. Remember back in the day when we used to say, “hey they are playing my song”? Well today they say “Yo, turn it up, that’s my jam”. Yea I’m with it. The problem is my jams are songs from the 70’s or Contemporary Christian songs these days so some would say; “Yo Dog, you ain’t wit it”. I do like some of the new songs out which totally drives my kids crazy. They say things like “Dad please don’t sing that song, you are too old to like that kind of music.” Music always makes me happy.

5. I am so thankful that this morning when I woke up, I wondered what I would have for breakfast lunch and dinner instead of wondering if I would have anything at all to eat today. I Praise God for letting me be born in America and keeping food on my table.

Have a Blessed day,
Greg

Deb said...

I'm impressed!! The hands held up to the weedwacking!!! :o)

Also, I was reading #4 to my kids and they loved it!! Except they pointed out that you're not "wit it" because you spelled dog wrong!
To be "wit it" you spell dog--dawg!! LOL!!!!!!! :o)
I know all about you're kids wishing you wouldn't sing "their" songs...I love comtemporary Christian--especially the rock--and when I tear into a song, it turns them every shade of red!!
Have a great day dawg!!

I too was expecting some jam, as in the kind that goes with peanut butter. I'm always impressed with your dedication to working out at the gym.

Thank the Lord for food, jams, rain, and C's.
Congrats to your tall boy passing 6th grade and squeaking out that C. My son is 6' 5", so I know what a big kid is like. Your son did goooood!!!

My dad, daughter, and I plan to go to the Crater of Diamonds Park one day next week. I'll let you know if we find anything valuable. THAT would ROCK!!!!!

Jamie Dawn said...

Oh and...
Keep gettin' jiggy with it!

Carmen said...

Jams? I thought it was the word for Jammies...my kids would blush. They're all in their early 20's, so I'm not cool right now anyway. ;) Good list and as usual it's entertaining too! Have a good weekend!

Wanda said...

Great Thankful list for Thursday!

I read back on the posts I had missed and enjoyed all of them, but didn't comment....


You continue to have one of the best blogs around!

LOL:Wanda

"The wolf had on a collar and was dragging a short chain...." Could be that he had eaten the arm off of the person holding the chain.

As for Deliverance, well, I've seen a few of that type myself. Usually it's when we get a fire call and even if the house is burning to the ground, we aren't allowed to approach it until the police arrive... seriously!

It has been hot here too. I don't think we have quite hit 95 yet...but I can relate to the humidity.

Glad you still have your arm.
