“Do everything without complaining or arguing.” –Philippians 2:14


“Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication

with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding,

shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” –Philippians 4:4-7

Still Giving Thanks…1/29/09

O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.” –1 Chronicles 16:34


I am thankful for:

–exercise…or more precisely the ability to still do it. Even though it is much more painful than it used to be, it’s not impossible. Actually, I’ve found that if I’m going to be in pain anyway (from arthritis), that it might as well be productive pain! 🙂

–other homeschool moms

–a book called “The Strong-Willed Child” by Dr. James Dobson

–my new B.B. Ladies’ Circle (prayer, fellowship, devotionals, Bible study, etc.)

–humor…what a gift!! 🙂

–Facebook…I’ve reconnected with so many familiar faces…it’s been great!!

–God’s amazing love, grace, mercy, and forgiveness. I’m so thankful for HIS perfect understanding, will, and way. I thank Him for His guidance, discernment, and wisdom!!

Sparrows Don’t Worry…

…so, why should we?


On this Thankful Thursday,

I’m thankful that I don’t REALLY have to worry…

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” ~G.K. Chesterton

“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?” ~William A. Ward

“Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don’t unravel.” ~Author Unknown


I’m thankful for:

Little Kerry showing more interest in reading lately.

–the “off “switch on the T.V., and that I’ve remembered how to use it! ;-)

–ENCOURAGEMENT. God finds so many ways, both big and small, to uplift me all along the way. James 4:10 says, Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”

–God’s Word. Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

–the scene unfolding around me this evening, just now, as I’m typing this post. My darling husband is softly playing the piano, while Sarah is happily reading to little Kerry. (Pretty sweet, I tell ya…yep, pretty sweet.) -)
