Counting My Blessings 7-3-14

A few random blessings:

--Reading through Zechariah and Malachi yesterday and having gotten through the whole old testament twice now moving into Matthew- thank You Lord for your awesome WORD... I 
LOVE it.  

-- For overall a strong body and good health.  

--For water right out of the tap.  Hot showers, flushing commode, clean clothes,  sparkling dishes,
and even water that gushes from the hose and sprinklers... thank you Lord.  

--For how Myguy calls me Dollface and says he loves 
my soul -

-For the love of grown sons... and that I get to see them both almost every day.  

-For the help from Tony and Michelle last night putting the 
pickets on the porch.  

For finishing a little porch 

-Chatting with Kayla when she stopped in 
to see her sweetheart.

--For how Trent grabbed my post hole diggers and dug through rock
to set the cedar post I was working on.  

--For this Scottish gnome
Humpty dumpty
and especially my sweet friend  who 
sent him!

--For three to four inches of rain in one night and a good garden soaking.

--For protection from the lightning and seeing 
more heart.  

--For the first black Krim tomato
right off the vine.

--For corn that stood tall and strong
growing big ears of sweet Kandy.

--For  donkey brays
and Gracie neighs.

--For loads of zucchini, summer squash and 
cucumbers ripe.  

--For new music that makes my feet tap and 
a whistle in this heart. 

--Witnessing a stranger help another in Walmart-
This aged woman riding a cart had trouble reaching something from the freezer section and 
a woman  behind her went out of her way, helped and put it in her basket.
I was blessed by this interaction and inspired 
by an act of  LOVE. It was the way she helped that struck me...
so ... seeing a need and jumping on it with JOY. 
The seeing  ... was a true gift.

--for feeling 60 degrees this morning... in July! 

--For the good old USA
land that I love.  

Thank you Lord for all these things and so much more...
Thank you for my every thing.

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.
John 21:25
