Thankful Thursday

I am finding so much to be thankful for, and have at times been overwhelmed by the blessings that are being poured into my life right now. God is so good!! Here's the update on a few things...

* About half an hour after I posted about my lost driver's license, the phone rang. Someone had found it and was calling to arrange to return it to me. I lost it at the zoo, about 50 miles away, and he was even willing to mail it so I didn't have to drive down there to retrieve it. How cool is that??

* My taxes AND my grad school application both got in on time, in spite of my using up every minute until the deadline. (I know this is not "news," but I'm still grateful, and it IS Thankful Thursday after all!)

* I was surprised this morning to find that my GMAT score has been finalized, which means the score report is on its way to the university, at least 2-3 weeks ahead of what I was told to expect. My hope is that this will mean a quicker admissions decision. One can dream!!

* Here's the best one: I'm talking with someone about some part time work as a follow up to one of the calls I got last week, and it sounds like the perfect arrangement to go along with my grad school plans!

This all serves to remind me that there are no coincidences, only "God-incidents." I didn't make this up, I just heard it once and liked it! Thinking of things that way helps me to turn my gratitude heavenward, and be aware that God places so many fabulous blessings in my life.

  4. God definitely is good! How great to be able to see how he is working in your life. I love that phrase "God incidences" - I think I'm going to have to borrow it! (:

  5. ...but I'll spell/say it right when I do - "God INCIDENTS" (:
