Things I’m Thankful For: Top Ten {Tuesday}

top ten list

Last week Lydia was off of school for Thanksgiving. And it was so fun to just ramble around the house and run errands and just be together. I downloaded the new #1000gifts app and it’s got me taking more pictures (altho’ sometimes I can’t actually get it up on the app!) and more aware of things (people) I’m thankful for. So, here are a few pictures from the last few days–pictures that show why my heart is so full of joy and thanksgiving!


Top Ten Things, People and Places I’m So Thankful For

1. Mommy and Asa Days


2. How Operation Christmas Child & Its Volunteers Teach My Kids To Serve


3. The 16 Countries That Over 1 Million Shoeboxes Will Be Shipped To JUST From the Atlanta Processing Center!


4. Impromptu Visits to Papa’s Office & Shop


5. Buying Milk, Eggs & Veggies from a Local Farmer


6. Seeing God’s Word All Around Us (that’s a fence at the park!)


7. Muppets Fingernail Polish (I got Pepe’s Purple Passion, of course!)


8. Stores That Celebrate One Holiday At a Time (that would be Nordstrom, y’all)

  1. What a great list, Amanda!! We do have so many things to be thankful for in our lives. And so many opportunities to serve and share with others.

  2. I am thankful for God’s provision, even when our situation and our goals have seemed impossible. Over and over I have been reminded of the truth of Philippians 4:19.

  3. Love your lists..whao Muppet Nail polish.. I should get some for myself.

  4. That’s a great list! And I love the pics – sweet pics of everyday blessings. Thanks for hosting! 🙂

  5. Love that fence in the park 🙂

    Checking out the Truth in the Tinsel book etc – hoping to join in from Ireland.

  6. I love the new book. It is beautiful and very well done. I can’t wait to go through it with the kidlets this year. Thank you.

  7. I love seeing that list of countries for the shoe boxes! Such an exciting ministry. 🙂 And that fence is awesome! I’ve never seen anything like it. How’d you get such blond kiddos?? LOL

  8. Beautiful blessings – the fence…I’ve never seen one like it…that is amazing!

  9. The fence at the park is amazing! How inspiring and comforting. Great list this week!

  10. I noted the same thing about Nordstrom. I was in there a few days before Thanksgiving….not one decoration. I came back on Black Friday and it was all decorated–I really loved that!

    • Johan Liljegren November 13, 2007 Jeff,Great to get some new blog tips! However, the link to Matt Evans’ The Admin Exchange is most likely inorcrect, as it is the same as the one to Salesforce Times.My Google karma doesn’t give me any tips on where to find it either. Do you have an updated link to it?Regards//Johan

  11. My face is in your Truth in the Tinsel Facebook screen capture!! I am SO cool now by association! Whoot whoot

  12. Glad you could make it to the Atlanta warehouse, Amanda! I hope the kids had a great time. 🙂 If you have any feedback about Family Day (if that’s the day you went) then let me know!

  13. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  14. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  15. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

  16. Thanks for the info! Always pressure to read an awesome post! Thanks again will be back for more!

  17. Rattling good visual appeal on this website , I’d value it 10 10.

  18. Genuinely necessary publish admin good one particular i bookmarked your word wide web web page see you in next webpage post.

    • Sorry for the huge review, but I’m rlealy loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

    • I have a mentally caenlelghd grandson, now 12 years old. He looks like any other 12 year old, but he acts about 6 or 7 years old. Sweet still and people accept him (especially once they get to know him). My worry is when he’s 20 or 30, how are people going to react to him then. So far I don’t think he realizes that he is different .so I feel your pain and your fears. We just have to pray that these special children will be strong and know that God will bless them in special ways.

  19. Really required publish admin wonderful a single i bookmarked your internet site see you in up coming weblog publish.

  23. I think everything said made a bunch of sense. However, consider this, what if you added a little information? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added a headline to possibly grab people’s attention? I mean Things I’m Thankful For: Top Ten {Tuesday} | is a little boring. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article headlines to get people interested. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get people interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
