Gratitudes 8

Greetings and Holykisses,

Hello friends!
I pause today to give thanks and share a few random blessings:

Thanks God for being my Father; for always being with me and ...for me!
Thanks for being my compass: my way, my truth and my life.
Thanks for helping me shake the dust off my feet to move on,
and discernment to guard my heart.

Thanks for my husband, who's my best friend.
--And for keeping your hand on our boys.

Thanks for our good health, and strong bodies.
For healing Fil from cancer, and giving him good reports.
Thanks for friends... and old friends to journey together.
Thanks for a Sisterchick I can share my heart with, and who reminded me to focus on what I have;... not what I don't.

Thanks for dragonfly kisses from Iowa,
... and a kindred heart from Scotland.

Thanks for the surprise visit from Miss Tree frog in the sink at the potting shed, who made me laugh outloud.
Thanks for keeping Hairdoo safe from the coyote clan ...and also my hand from Old Black Widow.
Thanks for helping us catch the calf that got out, and for getting half our winter-hay home.

Thanks for providing, and putting a new roof over our heads.
--For all these things, and so much more...
I give thanks.

How good it is to sing praises to our God,
how pleasant and fitting to praise him!
Praise the LORD.The LORD builds up Jerusalem;
he gathers the exiles of Israel.
He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.
He determines the number of the stars
and calls them each by name.
Great is our Lord and mighty in power;
his understanding has no limit.
The LORD sustains the humble
but casts the wicked to the ground.
Sing to the LORD with grateful praise;
make music to our God on the harp. Psalm 147: 1-7

Holykisses xoxo

Beautiful post friend!

I am thankful when I feel down He picks me back up. I am thankful when I am mean and ugly He forgives me again and again. I am thankful I woke up again and even though its hot the sun is shining.
I too am thankful for your friendship FRIEND!
And your new roof!It is a beautiful shade of green. I am slowly painting my whole downstairs walls green. Its so peaceful.

Aloha Dear Heart,

It seems like just last month you were getting your soil ready! Wow time flies ***** Kinda like that zuchinni guuuuu LOL!

Praise God for keeping you safe in your work there at the shed. I agree that He is so worthy of our praise. I am so grateful that he watches over his beloveds all night and day.

What a beauty of a roof and porch! That will really help keep things a bit cooler inside your home. Are you just percolating with decorating ideas for the porch? I see all kinds of hanging baskets under those eves ;-)

Love you Dear Friend, thank you for the psalm, so lifts my heart
