Thankful Thursday

"Prayers go up, and blessings come down" -Yiddish Proverb

It's been too long since I've done a Thankful Thursday post; my post today is simple and easy. But oh, so meaningful. I'm thankful that my blessings are too many to count, and I'm thankful for prayer. For all of my friends who pray for me in every situation. For all my friends who I see pray for one another. For the prayers that I can say for friends, and feel that even when I can do nothing else, I can do that in their favor. For prayers that I can say for strangers that I've never even met, and know that God is still listening with the same intensity as He does when I'm praying for those who are dearest to my heart. For the prayers that get answered. For the blessings that come from prayers.

Kevin, my fiance, and I were having a conversation via text message today. The topic at the moment was my health situation, because I've been getting more and more frustrated lately. Kevin said that I would be well in God's time. I don't know why God has this planned for me, but I certainly know what I can do about it. ;)

"Prayer is not a woman's idle amusement. Properly understood and applied, it is the most potent instrument of action." -Mahatma Gandhi
