Counting My Blessings....

Greetings and holykisses!

It's Thankful Thursday once again.
Here I share a few random blessings:

I'm thankful for this mighty Oak we saw on our drive this past week.
It reminded me to bend a little; but not to compromise following God.

I'm thankful that two people I love, are doing well after their
surgeries. We are believing for complete restored health.

I'm thankful it's sweater weather! ;)
Our Autumn mornings have been beautiful and chilly!

I'm thankful our heater worked well after turning it on for the first
time this morning. It stunk so toasty warm and took the chill off the house.

I'm thankful Myguy has some time off and look forward to spending
extra time together.

I'm thankful I finally met my goal and have lost 26 pounds! It's been
a long journey... and I just give God the glory. He helped me the whole way.
I feel so much lighter on my feet and healthier.

I'm thankful I get to walk our pastures everyday for exercise. I've come to look
forward to it and enjoy it so much!!!

I'm thankful for my newest bible study book, and can hardly put it down.

I'm thankful for all the zinnias that sprouted up in our garden and are now blooming
like crazy! (Today, I hope to cut a huge bouquet to put in an antique Cross
mason jar.) -- all gifts from God.

I'm thankful for so many things today. For all of you,... your friendships, and encouragement. God's been so good to me!

"Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written." John 21:25


Have a blessed day!

Praising God WITH you! ....from Whom all blessings flow.

I'm particularly encouraged by your weight loss. I'm embarrassed to say that I've regained some of the pounds I'd worked hard to lose last year. Hearing of the results of your hard work helps me stay determined to get back to my goal.

God bless you, Lea!

Hi Lea,
I loved reading what you are thankful for. Sometimes it's so easy to overlook simple things.
You saw more than just an Oak tree, you saw Gods creation, and how He used it to speak to your heart, and that lead to you sharing it on your post.
Thank you for a great post,
Michele Katherine

Hi, congrats on the weight loss. I know you said you have been walking the pastures every day. Is that all you are doing? I definatly need to loss some. I just don't do good with diets. My only result seems to be that I get grouchy. I am proud of you. You look great up on your log. What a great picture. Hope you have a great weekend. Lisa

You have such an exciting life. I love the way you take something that may not mean anything to anyone else and you make it into something beautiful. You are precious.

Hi Sweet Lea!
I'm just sitting her paying bills, listening to your music selection.
Wow, congrats on the 26#--woot! And I was just about to make your yummy Apple Prayer Bread recipe! (I end up eating almost the whole loaf---Mark would rather eat grapes! Not me, I need either sugar or chocolate!)

Happy November! God bless!
Love, Heidi
