Thankful Thursday with ~Dragonflykisses~

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Greetings and Holykisses Yall!
It's Thankful Thursday once again and I'm counting my many blessings .... how about you!?

This is my "today's" random 5:

1. I'm thankful for the dragonflies that fluttered all around me this week while I weeded my flowerbeds! They were constantly catching my attention; dancing about, and landing right where I was working. I couldn't help but notice.
Then today, "Myguy" came in an asked me if I'd gotten his email he sent yesterday. I hadn't. He steered me toward the computer and wanted me to see what he'd sent. It was this photo of another dragonfly. I WAS KISSED again today. (sweet dragonfly kisses! "Whenever you see a dragonfly know I'm all around you and that I love you." -- by my angelmother)
Thankyou ABBA FATHER for bringing me such JOY in my life!!! I feel so loved by YOU and my angel mother!

2. I'm thankful for the sunny skies, and very warm weather. I enjoy hanging clothes out on the line so much. Especially fresh sheets. Urina Maria loves to help .... I keep telling her our skivvys go on the back line! egads!!* (Okay, so maybe she really only stands around and holds my clothespins; I still enjoy her company!)

3. I'm thankful for my garden and the shabby olde potting shed.
"The Lord took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and take care of it." Genesis 2:15

"You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows." Psalm 23: 5



I feel the Lord so much here. Remember this coffee pot that we filled with flower " crown" bulbs?
Thanks to God, it's now filled with flowers
Remember the bare claypots?
"The grasslands of the desert overflow; the hills are clothed in gladness." Psalm 65:12
"Do not be deceived; God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows." Galatians 6:7


4. I'm thankful for my feathery friends.

"So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:21


5: I'm thankful for an abundant life. I'm thankful for God's grace and mercy.
"Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord."
2 Peter 1:2

Thank you Abba Father for being Lord of my Life. For loving me so much you that you even shower me with dragonflies to bless me. You've given me so much. A husband to love and cherish. Children to love and adore. Friends old and new. Thank You.

May my life be pleasing to You. May the work of my hands and the love of my heart be used for your glory. I love you Lord with my everything.

We have so many dragonflies! Now I will think of them in a different 'light'...a holy light that says they are special to my new friend.

Bless you, Lea!

You have a unique way of finding things to be thankful for that most of us just take for granted. Thanks for the reminders that we should be thankful not only for the big things but the tiniest of things.
From my heart to yours,
