Day 21 of 366: thankful for the ability to help others

β€œLet each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”

Philippians 2:4

Helping others doesn’t necessarily mean that you need money to help them. I love helping in any which way the Lord has directed me to even at work. Small things like helping someone copy documents, offering a listening ear and even waiting with someone until he/she gets transport to head home.Β

Day 20 of 366: thankful for cozy sweaters!

Let your steadfast love comfort me according to your promise to your servant.

Psalm 119:76Β 

Due to being anemic, I’m almost always cold, so I invested in sweaters that can keep me warm at work, at church, while I sleep, and even when I’m going out. Sweaters are like blankets I can wear anywhere! They’re cozy, warm, and comforting like God’s love.Β

The day started out hot and sunny, so we weren’t expecting the sudden, but a welcoming downpour of rain. It is now late evening, and it’s cold. I’m going to call this a day, read a book, and spend time with my family.

Day 17 of 366: thankful for a really comfortable chair

Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!

1 Chronicles 16:11

I have a bit of a bad posture from slouching over the years for I could never sit – or stand for that matter – straight. I still slouch from time to time, but I have a very comfortable chair in the office that reminds me to sit straight whenever I pull it up to the desk.

Day 16 of 366: thankful for long lines

Whoever is patient has great understanding,
but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.

Proverbs 14:29

I know this might seem like a weird one, but I am thankful for long lines. When I started working and had to line up at the bank, at KFC, at the shop, etc., I was pretty mad that the line was not moving. Over the years, I came to learn patience through waiting in line. True story.

Now whenever I am in a long line, I concentrate on God and reflect on my day or week and that’s why I am thankful for long lines.

Day 15 of 366: thankful for crossword puzzles!

β€œFor everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1

My sister recently downloaded a crossword puzzle game – Codycross – and I have to admit, it can get addicting. I don’t have any games on my phone or tablet or even laptop for that matter, so I normally join in the fun with her.

However, I also have to remember that there is a time for everything. A time to play crosswords and a time to refrain for I don’t want it to affect my personal time with Christ.

Day 14 of 366: thankful for the sense of smell

Mary then took a pound of very costly perfume of pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped His feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.

John 12:3

The smell of morning coffee can be pretty enticing.

The smell of books can be new, funky, musky, rich.

The smell of flowers leave a beautiful and sometimes everlasting effect throughout the rest of the day.

The smell of food when it’s cooking!

The smell after the rains has fallen.

The luscious scent of vanilla anything!Β 

But not all smells are pleasant, beautiful, or sweet. Some are disgusting, pungent, or downright rotten. Yet, I think that nothing is more memorable than smell for it can transport you back to memories that you hold dear in your heart.

I used to have a fine sense of smell meaning that I could’ve smelled something from a distance before seeing it whether it was a good or bad smell, but since the flu affected my health, I’ve lost that really sharp sense of smell. Nevertheless, I am thankful for the sense of smell and I bless God that I can still smell the scent of vanilla, coffee, and pastries.Β

What about you? Do you appreciate the sense of smell? What’s the most pleasing thing you’ve ever smelled?

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

This week as I continue to rest both physically and mentally in the Lord, I’ll be taking things easy – and slow – around the community. I’m thankful for the strength that He has blessed me with to even open my eyes this morning and to get out of bed.Β
