I had a nice 24 hours the other day. I went boogie boarding at the beach, then spent the night at my parents. I went on a nice bike ride. It was a refreshing and restful change.
Then I came home...and school started...and my job. That's today. It was actually nice feeling to be back and greet old friends.
Counting My Blessings
Sometimes I must remind myself to stop and count the blessings I have in my life. I think my Father in heaven would enjoy that.
If my children only complained, pleaded and were constantly anxious...about my ability to care for them...parenthood would be dreary, indeed.
Dear Father in Heaven---thank you!
a job that I enjoy
parents who know you...and live a few miles from a beautiful beach. (a restful spot for me)
my writing critique group
my moms-in-touch group
Sunday morning lifestyles class at church
extended family relationships are healthy and "in you".
thank you that my oldest son really likes his new college classes--auto and welding
thank you that my youngest son is doing well
I'm thankful that my husband loves me
Thank you for the nature I see every day...the mountains, the sky, the plants, the birds, rocks, dirt, breezes, trees...oh and the stars, planets, moon, and beautiful universe!
Thank you for your Word.
Thank you for listening to my prayers.
Thank you for forgiving me, saving my life through the death and resurrection of your son and preparing a home in heaven for me...so we can be together forever.
