Nov 6 ..A Few Random Blessings



I'm thankful for today and that I got to see it again.  
For Myguy ... for family... and friends.  

For friends I know 
have been 
praying  me through.  

For being now 3 weeks into healing..
-that I got my stitches all out-
and it really didn't even hurt much.  

To get out and about,
and find  my place again.  
"Helpmeet."  

For my daughter in law to be-
and her genuine  caring and love.  

For beautiful Autumn days ... 
and soaking in sunshine.

For protein "ensure" ..
vanilla- my favorite.  

For my sister and 
long talks on the phone. 
Her voice -
a piece of our Momma back to my heart. 

For a ride with my son
on the fourwheeler to look at land- 
spending time "together."  ... and dreaming out loud.

For the deer rubs we saw.

For the prettiest card from my 
sister across the pond.  

...new pens, glue, and 
glaze- thoughtful blessings 
from Peace  Blvd.  

For extra time to do art.
while healing and 
waiting.  


 For these big blooms of cotton crysanthemums
from Gardenerwoman. 

 And that I got to share them 
with  her this year.  
 For Sonshine of sherbet, and 
 one  long eared reminder to go ahead...
stop and smell roses.  
 and for choosing the better thing...
time with Him in the word.  
 To have winter hay 
ready and waiting...


For these towers of seed 
that point me to shuckin a headful of worry.
Matt 6: 25-27
 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?  Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
 For this last glimpse of growing
before a night's first freeze
 of the year.

For Ophelia  who's still here...
and discovering Myguy bought her
canned cat food!
Will wonders ever cease?

For the heater that kicked on and worked right. 
chasing  away the chill.  

For lingering warmth to 
tide over these pots
a little while longer.

For holes filled around the chimney
and no more mice.

For a Christmas cactus
in full bloom.

For a friend and my Mil
celebrating another birth day.

For a couple of our oldest friends
and joy of them getting baptized this Sunday!

Thank you God for all these things and so much more.
Thank you for my everything.

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 booksthat would be written. Amen.
John 21:25
