must keep counting

With such a blessed and even privileged life, I don't know how I can be so annoyed by little things going wrong. I need to list the good, thank God for all of this and more, meditate on what is right and let the wrong go unaccounted for. 

Thank You, Father for

* such an incredible little boy who continues to grow bigger and stronger in size, heart, and prayers

* that white dog, who can't replace the last but does an amazing job of replacing what was once daily tears with new joy 

* the washer and dryer, the dishwasher, disposable disinfectant wipes, the robot vacuum, the self cleaning cat box... all of these convinces that make it possible for me to find time to enjoy life with my family and take care of myself

* the abundance of beautiful surroundings both inside and outside of my home

* a warm winter

* Mark Gungor's sermon about "I don't care", which the mere thought of can put me right back where I belong

* clothes, shoes, jackets, heat, food and water, supplies, cars, gas, homeschool, toys...

* God's love, jealousy, and faithful continuous pursuance

* the picture of my deep failure next to His much greater Grace and Forgiveness

* such love


  1. I'm with you....being thankful in EVERYTHING will bring a refreshing out look on things that is for sure.

  2. "My deep failure next to His great grace and forgiveness". Yes! I too am thankful for this!

  3. love the list again, we do have much to praise Him for don't we?


Your kind words are a blessing to me. Thank you for taking the time to share your heart.
