Thankful Thursday

"But thanks be to God, who always puts us on display in Christ and through us spreads the aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place." -2 Corinthians 2:14

I was looking a verse to start off this Thankful Thursday, and was awed by this one. As I meditated on it, I thought about what 'the knowledge of Him' was and I remembered this verse:

"This is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and the One You have sent—Jesus Christ." -John 17:3
Mallory, mother of our other cats

So knowing God is eternal life. So the 2 Corinthians "aroma  of the knowledge of Him" is the aroma of eternal life, which God spreads through us into every place! Awe! What a thing to give thanks about!

What a good way to start off Thankful Thursday!

I am also thankful right now for Sophie, my dog, who nestled beside me, as well as Radar, my parent's dog who is on the floor.

I'm also thankful for the cats: Mallory, Devlin, Corwin and Ezra. And for Slushy and Nightmare, cats who technically are our neighbors', but who spend a good portion of their day in our yard, seeking affection.

I am also thankful for my cell phone, which enables me to stay connected.

I am thankful for this blog, and the blessing it is in my life.

I am thankful for my family, for what time I have with them.

And as always I am thankful for my dear Ryan, for his everythingness, and for our love story.

Thank you God, and thank you readers!
