I'm grateful for our good weather in Leavenworth, and for good fellowship and friendship (and great burgers, too!).
I'm thankful for good wine and sweet friendship. I'm thankful for restful sleep and things to challenge my intellect. I'm thankful for the last generation and the next. And I'm thankful for the stunningly beautiful fall colors on the trees.
I'm grateful that my husband and the boys get to go hunting/camping - what a great vacation for them. They really enjoy it! I am very grateful that my husband has a good job with good benefits and that he can take a long, much-needed vacation because he has worked for his employer for decades. I am so very grateful for the provision of HaShem!
I'm grateful for my children.
I'm so grateful for payday! :-)
I'm grateful for fun projects to work on!!
I'm grateful for blogger - I would have never guessed that I would so enjoy writing.
I am thankful to the LORD for contrasts. These are necessary and it just makes me appreciate things so much more clearly. You can't appreciate the light without the dark, nor the good without the bad. So, I'm grateful for all the experiences He gives me, even the difficult ones. If it were not for some in my life that are hurtful and insensitive, I'd never know how wonderfully supportive and loving my real friends truly are. And only He knows just how much I appreciate my true friends...it's more than words can say!
I'm grateful for fleece and for the heater in my car.
“A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.”"...the LORD gives us experiences and the insight that comes from them for a purpose. Not to make us feel shameful, but to help others that are going through similar difficulties. We all make choices and live with the consequences...both good and bad. And it's those experiences that bond us to one another with compassion." I'm thankful that the LORD has given me compassion for others, both near and far. And not just for those that appear 'righteous', but for the down-trodden and lonely, the sad and the victimized, for the widow and the orphan. LORD, please enable me to show compassion and love to those that need it the most.
I'm grateful for the memories - I will hold them dear always.
What are you grateful for this week?
