Life is so busy right now that I barely have time to catch my breath. Gratitude is a choice that I’m making today. Won’t you join me?
1037. Aspirin when you have a headache.
1038. The Internet. (At 5:00 am looking for worksheets …it’s marvelous thing.)
1039. Bird’s singing in the dark just before the dawn. May it remind me of the real “dawning” of that day
when Jesus comes back. This could be it … even so come Lord Jesus!
1040. The sweetness of a friend’s counsel.
1041. A phone call prayer prayed with enthusiasm and faith.
1042. Safety of a friends life amid storm tragedy.
1043. Did I mention the birds are singing in the dark?……I want to be like that.
1044. Older ladies who inspire me with their seriousness about the gospel and their reading choices.
1045. A short conversation on the salt covenant.
1046. 200 plus volunteers who give of their time and life so the gospel can go out in UPWARD basketball.
1047. People who help an old mom find a young, quick three year old who loves adventure.
1048. Watching people serve with great joy and little recognition in their local church.
1049. Genuine kindness shown toward little children. I was reminded of how it takes time to do this and relenquishing of self. Could this be another meaning of “suffer” in the “suffer the little children to come unto Me…” that Jesus spoke?
1050. Libraries. (E-books haven’t completely taken over …yet….and I don’t want them to either….)
1051. The “so great a cloud of witnesses” who surround us….
1052. Watching basketball games with my husband.
1053. A reminder from an 8 year old to say “false” before the word “god” or “goddess” when reading aloud a book about Greek mythology. He was so right. “Give unto the Lord the honor due unto HIS name.”
1054. The purple foxgloves, yellow daffodils, and tulip’s sprouting their way up through the dirt to herald the coming of Spring.
1055. A turned over sock basket. Count it all joy.
1056. Answer to prayer in the middle of Walmart.
1057. A determined pursuit of the “D.Min.” by my husband.
1058. An older pastor/wife who shared at our marriage conference. So great to see faithful people who just keep doing what is right.
1059. Putting out a fire in my microwave quickly ….(last time I did that I had to call the fire department).
1060. Traveling family who stop in for a visit.
