It is a good thing to stop and count your blessings at least once a week. Early in the morning, when I first rise and look out the windows I have a moment of enormous gratitude for our spot in the world.
Having just spent last weekend at a family reunion I have to say it fills me with joy to say I am thankful for a lot of lovely people I can call family and friend. We had such a good time with lots of good food and good connections.
and for these children I am truly thankful (if I knew photoshop I could slip in our dear son-in-law who was tending the shop)...very thankful for the extra days with Sherilee and Seth...
Tonight I find myself thankful for my faith relationship with God. He makes our lives worth living in many ways.
Have faith in God, with Him comes understanding;
Have faith in God, He gives you cause to sing;
Have faith in God, your heart will have His peace;
Have faith, dear friend, in God.
Having just spent most of the day outdoors either walking or working in one garden or another I have to give thanks for the opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty all around us.
and of course, my roses!!
And I am so grateful for the permission I have given myself to spend more time creatively. For years I skirted around the edges of living creatively…but I was always in a rush. It is time to get rid of the hurry, hurry of life as we knew it back in civilization.
For you all who read these lines I am thankful. Faithful friends are important and a great blessing in my life. Have a lovely weekend.
