I know we focus on being thankful each Gratituesday around here. But hey, we can focus again on it later in the week, right?!
I am currently reading through Ann Voskamp’s book, One Thousand Gifts. It’s an amazing (and challenging) read, and I highly encourage this book. I am realizing the need tonight to focus on the blessings and gifts of today. Will you join me?
Some of my gifts today…
~ We got to eat lots of veggies!! Always wonderful after traveling. ;)
~ I was blessed to have a most encouraging telephone conversation with my Aunt Millie this morning. Oh how I love, need, and am inspired by that woman. She is a beautiful woman of God. She begins chemo treatments tomorrow. And there she was encouraging me…
~ Prayer. What would we do without it?
~ It’s the first day of spring! It is still cold here, but today, the sunshine busted through the windows, giving us just a hint of what is to come.
~ I got to be sharpened in Ladies Bible Class tonight. I am surrounded there by godly women.
~ We have enough food in our fridge for leftovers at lunchtime tomorrow. Hooray for the thirteen peas!
~ I got to squeeze in a work-out today. It was just what I needed after sitting in the van (and eating cheesecake) yesterday.
~ Since I was able to keep up with laundry at our lodge in Branson, by tonight, I only have one load left to do from our trip.
~ There were casseroles in the freezer for us to warm up and eat today so that I didn’t have to stop working to cook.
~ You. I am blessed by each of you who choose to read my thoughts and ideas here on this blog. I appreciate you.
~ Made-up songs. My boys come up with them daily. Today was no exception. Sometimes they even rhyme. And they are always ridiculously funny.
~ Crashing in my own bed. That ranks right up there with eating veggies after returning home from vacation. :)
What about you? Share the gifts of today. What comes to mind? In what ways are you blessed?
