Day 81 of 366: thankful for organization!

Let all things be done decently and in order.

1 Corinthians 14:40

I’ll be the first to admit that I like things messy. When I’m working, my desk must be messy with books here and there. But that’s a library thing. At home, I’ve been organizing everything from clothes to books and even boxes and it feels much lighter in the room now so I am thankful for organization!

Day 79 of 366: thankful for growth

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.

Today, I just want to express how thankful I am for growth in all areas of my life. Looking back, I’ve been torn down in so many ways, but God has built me back up always thus helping me with growth in places I’ve thought too impossible. Thank You, God! πŸ’™

Day 78 of 366: thankful for peanut butter

Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for God has already approved what you do.

Ecclesiastes 9:7

I haven’t eaten peanut butter in a while, but when dad brought home a tub of chunky nutty peanut butter for me, I was beyond ELATED! I’ve been eating it with everything! Well, almost everything that I can spread the goodness on. So today, I am thankful for my father bringing me happiness in a nutty tub.

Day 77 of 366: thankful for the new litter of kittens

The righteous care for the needs of their animals,
but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.

Proverbs 12:10

The first cat that moved in permanently many years ago was a homeless stray. We took her in and over the years, she became an honorary family member until her death several years ago. She has blessed us with beautiful fur babies, but they’re old now. Last year, a young kitten wandered into the yard and decided to stay although we alerted her owner about her whereabouts. Turns out the owner found her abandoned and took her in, but didn’t care enough to love it.

Cats want to be loved and when they’re loved, they return that love generously.

Long story short, the cat ended up staying and yesterday, she gave birth to her first litter of kittens: 5. I am thankful that she gave birth easily for she was not properly cared for when she first ventured into the yard, saw the other cats, and decided to call it her home.

Day 76 of 366: thankful for safe travels

The Lord will keep you from all harmβ€”
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Psalm 121:7-8

Waiting for transport on mornings to get to work can be a little frustrating especially when you have to wait for a while for a driver that you’re familiar with. I’ve been working at my current job for 11 years now, so I am familiar with the drivers that pass on my route.

Today, I am super thankful for safe travels to and from work. God always looks out for me and I couldn’t have asked for a better Protector! πŸ’™

Day 75 of 366: thankful for arts and crafts

He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weaversβ€”all of them skilled workers and designers.

Exodus 35:35

When I was a little girl, I met Arts & Crafts and fell in love with it courtesy my parents. Dad was skilled at drawing and Mom was always creating decorations out of anything that was usable. I would happily pass the hours painting, drawing, or crafting something. However, that all changed when I found writing and neglected the other talents the Lord has blessed me with.

Although I can’t paint, draw or decorate as well as before, I am still thankful for arts and crafts for I enjoy creating things.

But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do.

1 Corinthians 8:8

Lately, I’ve been eating more pancakes than I should, but I’ve been enjoying it so there are no complaints from me. I love pancakes! I eat them anytime during the day whether it’s for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack. I love my pancakes coated with maple syrup, no butter, please.

Today, I am thankful for fluffy pancakes and the endless options I have with them.

Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for God has already approved what you do.

Ecclesiastes 9:7

I truly LOVE my sister’s cooking! Her food is on another level, and I am not saying this because she’s my sister. Her name is Denise, and she’s one year younger than me. Last year, she really got into cooking, and she makes a mean macaroni pie, my favorite, yum!!
