Especially Thankful

        Today is a good day for being thankful.  Of course, all days are but especially today.  I returned home Saturday night after being gone for an 8 day intensive course that was so good!  And it was so good to come home.  Autumn candle scents and hot pizza with hugs welcomed me home.  Wonderful!

To keep my thoughts captive unto Him lifting up praise and thanksgiving is an absolute necessity.

Today I am especially thankful for …

a week-long intensive course called “Developing a Discerning Heart”

candle light

sunshine on freshly blooming mums

sounds of family playing a board game in the kitchen

my pillow

people who are flexible

Boomer’s silky ears

orange pumpkins

my friend’s invitation for a last-minute Saturday night dinner

Em’s smiles that lighten her whole face and mine too

new friends made  while sharing our stories

babies’ little bodies. All our sweet peas are sitting up now!

my newly painted sage green living room walls

shiny bright red fingernail polish that makes me smile

Blessings, Linda

About chinamom3078

I am a woman who loves Jesus who loved me first. Prone to wander and distraction is common for me as I seek to reflect Him in my daily life. I am wife, mom, and grandma who has lived on 3 continents in 26+ apartments, townhouses, military housing, suburbs and now a 200 plus year old farm house. Preparing and hosting meals for the hundreds who have passsed through our home has been a joy and blessing to our family as we listened and shared over meals, coffee, light nights and Bible studies. A rich life! I have reached the age to feel qualifies to be an ”older woman” (as in Titus) even though I feel far from old and have plenty of room to grow each and everyday. And my joy is to teach Bible studies and help train other women to lead well.
