Walk The Talk: Happy Thanksgiving!

I've been toying with the idea of a "walk the talk" blog for quite a while. And when MyFriendAmysBlog.com began her Saturday Christian Fiction Carnival where she asks a question and those who want to participate blog their answers and then visit each other's sites to comment, I thought it would be a great form of online fellowship to do the "walk the talk" idea that way.

As Christians, we're supposed to set an example for each other as well as non-believers. We're supposed to uplift and encourage, and I believe that sharing our stories will do just that! So, let's "Walk the Talk." Post your answer to the following question on your blog and insert your information in the window below. Then visit others who have posted an answer and comment on their posts. I pray that this activity will be an encouragement to all of us.

The Question:
Although it sounds cliche, what are you thankful for this year?

My Answer:
This was a challenging year. I was laid off from a job of more than ten years in October 2007, and I've spent nearly every minute since looking for work. It's been very discouraging, but God has taught me so much about Himself in the last 12+ months. As the economy has worsened and the unemployment rate skyrocketed, I just KNEW God was getting ready to show up...and HE did! And it happened to coincide with a Bible study lesson that included Exodus 17 where the Israelites are battling the Amalekites and Aaron and Hur have to help Moses keep his hands raised over the battlefield so that the Lord will give them victory. My hands are raised as well...in praise: I am scheduled to start my new job next Monday. Hallelujah!
