Thank You Jesus

They seem to be popping up everywhere in my neck of the woods.


In fact, this one literally is in my neck of the woods...a.k.a my front yard.
I first heard the story (through one ear as I was preparing dinner) on our local news channel one evening,
saying to myself what a nice thing it was for this young man to do.
I didn't think much more about it until I started noticing these cheery, bright yellow signs.
Before long, they started showing up on front lawns all over the place.


This one is in my next door neighbor's yard.

I copied the link from our local news station's interview with him and you can read it here.
What started out as just the placement of a few homemade signs,
has become a nation wide Thank You Jesus Movement.
What a dedicated and inspiring young man Lucas is!
~
Like I mentioned, whenever I am out and about I see the signs everywhere.
Over the weekend, I took my camera with the zoom lens to see how many I could snap.
There were many more than I could actually capture due to obstacles and such,
but here are just a few.









(mine again)
I actually purchased my sign at one of our local Living Free Ministries Thrift Store.
The stores are a part of a wonderful ministry for the restoration of drug and alcohol addicted men.
They sell the signs for $2 more than the website does and the extra $$ helps to support the ministry.
Any one who knows me probably also knows that a ministry such as this is very close to my heart.
And I thank Jesus every day for what He has done and is doing in Aaron's life!
Easter is the perfect time of the year to thank Jesus for what He's done for us.
If it wasn't for Him dying on that cruel cross, we wouldn't even have a savior to thank, period.
Here's a song I hope you enjoy, simply titled "Thank You Jesus".


As I reflect on this Holy Week leading up to Resurrection Sunday,
I pray that I never take for granted, not for one single moment, that Jesus gave His life for me.
THANK YOU JESUS!
I am taking this opportunity to wish you all a most blessed Easter week.
Company's a comin' and I've got tons to do before their arrival Thursday evening.
If I don't get around to visit, I'll catch up as I can :)
Hugs,

  24. That is awesome to see all those signs! I don't know if we'd see that sort of thing up here but it is a good reminder that we do need to be thankful for what Jesus did for each of us and I think my neck of the woods could sure use that reminder! Have a blessed Easter weekend Debby. Enjoy. Hugs. Pam

  30. Lucas' declaration, stretching distances, to reach as many as he can, is, indeed, a gesture that touches the hearts of those who are devoted to Jesus. I thank Him every day, but especially during this holy time, as I await His resurrection.

    Wishing you a peaceful and blessed Easter, Debby. Enjoy your visitors!
