Gratitudes 12

Greetings and Holykisses,

I'm giving thanks tonight and want to share a few blessings. Although it's still Wednesday; I think I'll go ahead and post early. --

  • I'm thankful to be one of God's women-
  • And thankful my husband and son's are 3 of His men!
  • I'm thankful for each and every one of you who journey along with me here at the potting shed! (-I lift you all in my prayers today!)
  • I'm thankful the Word of God is alive! It truly is!!!
Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

  • -For life lessons this week- some were even a little hard to swallow! Things like: Loving God's way which is way higher than Lea's way-, forgiveness, discernment of someone I shouldn't trust, to guard my heart, conviction of times I'm a greedygirl, - for growing old gracefully, becoming a little bolder, sharing my abundance, ...and not giving up when I felt like just quitting and saying, " To heck with it!!!!!!!!!!" (I felt discouraged, but God said: "Keep going, you can do it in Me!"
  • - For a good word from my Aloha Sisterchick about being simple and the way it's continued on all week!!
  • -for reminder to quit comparing myself to others and that we're all created for purpose.
  • - For the Lord's prayer that teaches me how to pray: to my "Father," and for His will- not mine.
  • -For the timeliness of the Brave bible study with a galpal. Help us be Your brave women Lord!
  • -For one very noisy red tailed hawk...
  • -and a toad I've grown rather fond of.
  • -For memories! The good, bad and today I'll go so far to say even some of the ugly. Not all, ... but some!
  • -Contentment and joy.
  • -Modern medicine.
  • -For a miracle I'm believing will still happen!!!!!!!
  • -For our Pastor who preaches the Word.
  • -and for my Strongheart who took a stand this week; speaking the truth in love.
    -For all these things, and so much more... Thank you Lord!
John 21:25
And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen.

Holykisses everyone!
You're loved

I love that verse at the end of your post here! John just had a way of leaving us hanging on the edge of a cliff there, didn't he? Sometimes we think that the only thing Christ ever did or said are the little tidbits we read in the Gospels. To think that all the books in the world couldn't hold it all. . . .!!!!!! Amazing!
Loved your list, too, Lea. I fit into so many of those places with you!!!!
