While I was alone in my craft room I did some thinking - no tv, no music, nobody else at home, just nice & quiet. I was thankful for my day off & for having a job that is flexible & I that I don't have to work full-time. I'm thankful that even though I may sometimes complain about money, we have ALWAYS had plenty. Even when we didn't have ANY. God met our needs. I complained last week about Margie's social security being cut. Today, instead of complaining, I was thankful that we live in a country that she still gets something. I was thankful that when we've had to cut back on our spending -- even food -- we've never gone hungry. I was thankful for the shopping opportunities that are available to me. I bought a shirt at a thrift store today. Most people don't even know that I shop mostly at thrift stores! I used to remind people that there are people worse off than us all around the world. Today we all know people who have lost jobs & homes. They're right here... not around the world. We are still VERY blessed.
The photo above is from a hike we went on a few years ago.
The Lord is my strength & my shield;
My heart trusts in Him, & I am helped;
Therefore my heart exults,
& with my song I shall thank Him.
