Today is Thankful Thursday. Lynn from ‘Spiritually Unequally Marriage’ will be hosting Thankful Thursday during March, and Laurie from ‘Women Taking a Stand’ will be hosting in April.
Stop and visit Lynn and see what others are thankful for.
As I go through my day, I talk to God. I thank him for many things and ask his help in others.
I thank him for the reliable furnace as I hear it come on throughout the day. I ask him to protect our home when storms and ice and rain come- because it's his house. I've turned it over to him for using as he wants. I offer it for hospitality, and warmth and comfort for others when needed.
As I load the washer and hear it swishing our clothes clean, I say thank you. As water goes through the pipes (not frozen) or when the dryer, with all of its options for how I want my clothes to dry, does its job- I whisper, wow, God, thank you.
Loading the dishwasher, I say thank you. All of these conveniences I try not to take for granted. These are every day things -easy to just use and go on.
Maybe because I've lived long enough to have had all of these machines at one time or another break, I remember what is like to live without them for some time. That's when you realize how much you use and depend on them.
I ask God's help throughout the day for safety and strength and knowledge and wisdom, and for our needs. I ask him to watch over our family as they travel to jobs and such. I feel him close. Caring about what I am doing. And I thank him for that.
I look around our home, and thank the Lord for these blessings- the everyday things...that really are quite amazing.
"...give thanks to Him and praise his name." Psalm 100:4
