truly thankful

Am I the only one who sometimes takes thing for granted and forgets to be thankful for everything God has so richly blessed me with in my life?

I just had one of those moments of remembering, of pausing to be truly thankful for something that may seem silly to put on a blog, but I am truly thankful to own a dishwasher.

I am on my second load of the day.

Don't you agree that a big mess of dishes pretty much always represents good times??

I know it does in this case. A wonderful afternoon and evening yesterday of time spent with GOOD friends, laughter, sharing, encouragement, spiritual lessons and fun!

Thank You, God for blessing me RICHLY. Thank you for the convenience of having a dishwasher, thank You for showing me Yourself through my relationships with these wonderful women, thank You for blessing us with a church where we can have friends, mentors, spiritual growth and encouragement and thank You for giving us more than enough to eat and enjoy. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

What are you thankful for today? I would love to hear. Kelly

I was just thinking, "Rain, again?" After reading your post, I am reminded to be grateful for the rain. It is beautiful in itself and for all that is does to support life. Thanks for the reminder!! :)

I am thankful for cooler temperatures. Now 90 degrees is usually still too warm for me, but it is the end of July in Oklahoma for goodness sakes! We should be in the 100s (and we have been), so 90 feels great to me.
