Gratitudes 19

Greetings and Holykisses,

A few random blessed gifts this week:

Still ...more grace.

A lesson on boundaries, ... and that seeing to the needs of someone else does not mean
you're just obligated to meet someone's wants or demands.

A lesson to "keep it balanced."

Spiritual mentors!

For free podcasts. (Love my Midday Connection.)

-Christian music. I really can't imagine life without music.

For the thunderstorms and lots of beautiful rain!

-The pond filling.

For the most colorful Fall leaves I've ever seen.
This morning as I drove to town; the reds, golds, and oranges were amazing! Everything was rain-washed, the sky was the bluest blue and the sun shone brighter than ever. It was perhaps the loveliest day I've ever laid eyes on.
Thank you Lord!

-Protection from severe weather and the sweetest call from
a neighbor who wanted to make sure I knew bad weather was on the way.

For Autumn flowers like these Marigolds and SanthaMUM Rose cotton. Okay so it's not really cotton but rather white Chrysanthemum plants. ... But God used plants just like this to get my attention to stop and love my neighbor.

For the little Texan who always... always points me to Jesus.
And who He uses to tell me:
I'm loved.
--You are too!

For finally finding this picture I'd misplaced and
for a friend finding the lens that fell out of his glasses.

And for my Grandma who used to say, "Lord lead me to it," when she lost something.

For time to get a tree off the fence in the woods.
--And that the cows and donks stayed on their own side.
We're thankful for those old fences and now... for more wood to burn.

For the two walking sticks Myguy cut for me.
They remind me of my Shepherd!
Psalm 23
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
For the pretty nest that blew out of the Pecan tree.

And for this one that must have fallen out of the tree on the fence. Both were
found on the very same day.
I love bird nests!

For the giant Sycamore leaves... and childrens songs that stick: "Zaccheus was a wee little man,
a wee little man was he.... he climbed up in a Sycamore tree, for the LORD he wanted to see."

For the green life I see waiting inside the Amaryllis bulbs.
And for getting them potted.
-Now for patience.
"Patience. Learn Patience," -said my AngelMother

For my man,
our sons,
and ...their love for pizza casserole and
punkin bread.
I'm so blessed Lord.
Thankyou for these gifts and so very much more.

John 21:25 "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen."
