Gratitude Journal


Greetings and Holykisses,

What a beeeautiful day! As I pulled back the curtain this morning, green grass greeted me. Overnight; our crunchy- brown grass was given new life thanks to the refreshing showers from our heavenly Father. I don't think it could be a prettier September day.

Thought I'd share a picture of my new Gratitude Journal that was gifted to me from my dear friend Sue of Country Pleasures. Inside; I'm trying to jot down a few blessings each and every day. Since today is Thankful Thursday afterall; here are
-- a few random BLESSINGS....
I'm thankful Myguys' thumb is much better after burning it badly this week.
I'm thankful for a dear friend who drove over with hospital burn medicine she had when
I told her my husband had burned himself.
I'm thankful God put she and I in line at the same store and orchestrated the turn of
events so my husband received this medicine. I'm also thankful for her obedience
to God's still small voice.
I'm thankful for the much needed rain!
I'm thankful it's now September, and grateful for changing seasons. I
love that God gave us changing seasons!
I'm thankful for our new bible study "Women of the Bible" that started this week, and
thankful for the blessing of having these special ladies share my table.
I'm thankful for a surprise visit by our son Tony and his new girlfriend this past Sunday! --She's very sweet and it's so nice to see Tony so happy.
I'm thankful one of my dear friends came over yesterday and had lunch with me. It was so great catching up and just being together! We had fun and dined over lemon pepper fish- one of our
favorite "healthy choices". lol
I'm thankful for my date on the Ferris wheel this past week with Myguy! ;)
(how blessed I am that he's such a romantic fellow even after 27 years together!*)

I could go on and on but oh how wonderful it feels to count my blessings. My God's good. He's in the big stuff, the little stuff and everything in between. He cares about every detail of our lives-- I'm so thankful for the life He's given me and for being with me always. Thanks God!

"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:13
