These Days...

The documentation of thanks
is a wonderful habit.
The LORD gives life and breath
and these are the days we
have been graciously given.

In this practice of thanks
I seek to give HIM praise.

As the days arrive,
so do the joys and the sorrows.
The LORD is in the midst of it all,
and so, the numbering continues...

1385. A little nurse in the family ~ So sweet!

1386. Auntie Mary arrived safely all the way from Wales

1387. That we have her here in Canada for THREE weeks!

1388. Hearing Auntie Mary's testimony

1389. That the children heard her share
her testimony

1390. Godly influence of the older generation

1391. Prayers prayed for us

1392. Long-ago garage sale (three doors down)
in which we acquired (among other wonderful things)
a hide-away bed/couch that was barely used and very cheap

1393. How that couch has come in handy over the years

1394. That Emma LIKES to sleep on it if we should
have overnight guests

1395. Beans and lentils in bulk (25 lb) bags ~ savings!

I list as events unfold.
Sometimes many all at once,
and other times in a trickle.

Would you like to begin?
Just grab a pen and a journal,
set them out on the counter,
and list out your blessings.
Find the joy in the moments ~
As they arrive.

Enjoy the journey!

Many Blessings,

I love to journal my blessings. This is a great quick way to do it, thanks for the idea! What a pleasure to meat other "sisters" in the Lord.
Hope on over to my blog, we could follow each other :)
Have a blessed week!

How lovely that you have your auntie Mary from Wales with you for three whole weeks. What part of Wales is she from? I have been to Wales on many occasions - mainly North Wales for family holidays, church hikes in Snowdonia and my last visit was in 2001 to stay with a friend in Cardiff. Is you aunt Welsh born? Does she have that beautiful accent?
I'm sure you are going to have a very special time with your auntie over the next few weeks. Enjoy your time together.
