Today I'm thankful for ...

Oh, Lord,

Today I'm thankful for...

tulips
the sunshine
doing a craft project for someone
a repaired A/C
chocolate chip cookie dough (and eventually cookies)
adult kids working from home
two freezers full of food (for the adult kids working from home)
my she-shed (because adult kids working from home are not always quiet)
a computer to keep me connected
Scripture--it never gets old or irrelevant
Clorox wipes (although I don't have any)
Amazon (to get the off-brand wipes)
flowering cherry and pear trees (dogwoods are next!)
a warm bed
French toast and syrup
my childhood memories
a recently-organized garage and potting shed
verdant green grass
the smell of stained wood
trash pick-up on my street
the diffuser with lemon grass oil (to off-set the smell of the stain)
books
students of all ages
people who have poured into me
Friday (it's tomorrow!)
this blog.

All these things are therapy for me today.
They are reminders of your infinite goodness,
some of the many reasons you don't have to prove your love
by answering my requests
or making my life easier.

You are good.
You do only good.
You are the God of heaven and earth
from time past and time forward,
right into eternity.

Thank you, Jesus.
Amen.

"For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love." (Psalm 33:4-5)
