Thankful Thursday!

I haven't done a Thankful Thursday for a Long Long time so maybe today I should!!I see the subject is on Masterpiece. I heard this story years ago and I don't know if I remember it correctly or not. But here goes. When a potter makes a beautiful pot he throw away the broken ones and the ugly ones, etc you get the idea..... until the piece is perfect then put his name on his piece.

God takes us when we are sinners and gives us His Name and calls us His Master piece before He even get started on us!!! I love that story. I am so happy that God never gave up on me!! He keeps changing me from what I was to what HE wants day by day! Praise His Name!!

I am so thankful for His love, grace, mercy goodness,life,light,kindness the list is endless like His Love!

This fall at the Ladies Bible Study we are going to start a 6 week study on a new book. Our leader Joan has chosen the book "When Wallflowers Dance" by Angela Thomas. Last spring we did a study by Beth Moore, Esther, "It tough being a Woman." I really did enjoy the weeks we were going through this book.
Joan is a wonderful teacher and taught school for 30 years or so and know how to bring out the best in everyone.I love going to this Bible study. I don't get to go to church as much as I would like to and this is just great that I can go to this. Karen comes over and is with Nancy so that I am able to attend! That is some thing I am so thankful about.
This summer at Sarah wedding I met a very nice lady and she told me she also goes to Joan's Bible study. It is such a small world.
This book is about becoming a woman of Righteous Confidence. Here is a little blurb about the book.
Using both Scripture and story, Angela Thomas addresses the attributes of "becoming" and the freedom we have in Christ to keep developing the characteristics that reflect our God-given longings..... Sounds like something we all can relate too.

I can get more out of a ladie's Bible study than out of any Sunday morning sermon.

Lovely Thankful Thursday post, Grams. Your new bible study sounds wonderful. I'm glad Karen is going to stay with Nancy, so you can go. I bet you're thankful for a daughter like Karen as well.

Happy weekend!
