One of my favorite verses is " A merry heart does good like a medicine" but today I want to rephrase it-"A thankful heart does one good." We are still in the midst of prepping our home for painting~yesterday I pulled the baseboards off of three rooms and labeled them-getting them ready to paint. I also took several loads over to the house for the shelves in the basement.
At the end of the day hubby and I are worn out but it is a good feeling, knowing we are accomplishing so much each day.
In the midst I am continually meditating on all the things I'm thankful for, here a just a few:
~That my Lord is not a piece of stone or some inanimate object but a Living God who hears our prayers and loves us.
~I am thankful that I'm saved by grace and not by works.
~I am thankful that He is the maker of the heaven and earth and that I can trust Him with all the crazy weather.
~I am thankful that although we've gone through a major earthquakes(and girls I hate earthquakes)and a tornado we haven't had to endure a hurricane. We met a couple from Florida this week who have gone through Hurricane Charlie and when they told us about it I thought I don't want to experience one.
~I am thankful for the body of Christ, those bloggy friends that would join together in the name of our Jesus and fast for someone bound by the blood of Christ that we have never met; pleading for her health and life to be healed from cancer. What an incredible blessing to be a part of all of you.
~I am thankful for the fact that even though we haven't heard about any change in Cindy, we can rest assured that God in His perfect will heard and is answering the prayers of the faithful.
~I am so thankful that we got a laptop in Dec. or else I wouldn't have a computer at all.
~I'm so thankful that we have time with our move and can take breaks during the day; I'm thankful that in another month(hopefully sooner)we will be in our own home. As Linny says"Yippee Jesus"!
~I am thankful to be alive in a time such as this, to be healthy and loved by my Lord and also by my family and friends.
What are you thankful for today?
