Thankful Thursday - Promises

Last Sunday EZ and I experienced a special treat after a heavy downpour...a beautiful rainbow! We happened to be walking out of a restaurant at the perfect time, and people were everywhere taking pictures with their phones. I was able to snap this one. It seems to be a rare and amazing sight, and one that is fleeting but fantastic whenever you catch it.

 Rainbows definitely take me back to the promise God made to Noah after the flood, in the book of Genesis: "Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life." 

I am so thankful for the promises of God and find them comforting in a world that often feels topsy-turvy. Here are a few promises you can count on:

You are My child. 
Your times are in My hands. 
My thoughts toward you are precious. 
I will love you with an everlasting love. 
I will bless you. 
I hold you in My hand.
I will not fail you. 
I am your Provider. 
With Me, all things are possible.

What are you thankful for today?


  1. Loved this post Mom! So thankful for God's promises.

    I asked the kids before bed what they were thankful for, and here was their list:

    Samantha: "Family"
    Samuel: "knife" (he was holding his wooden knife, so I generalized it and repeated "toys" :)
    Natalie: "my easel and art stuff"
    Nathan: "a fun day at the pool"

    I'm thankful to live next door to my Mom and Dad! Love you!

    1. Thankful to live next door to you too Sweetie! (And Nathan was right...we did have a fun day at the pool!)

  2. For that lovely photo and reminder!
