Thank you Lord...

Often in the morning, as part of my devotions I list ten things I am thankful to God for. It really makes me think, I have so much to be thankful for. 870 million people in this world do not even have enough food to eat... Here is my list of 'Thank you Lord's' from a couple of days ago.

1. Thank you Lord for the rain that fell yesterday and the night before.

2. Thank you Lord for the fun we had yesterday...in puddles...in polka dotty gumboots...with an umbrella...with the camera...   

3. Thank you Lord that it's sunny now. (Not that we would say no to more rain, though...)
4. Thank you Lord for food to eat...I can smell some right now...

5. Thank you Lord for a warm fire, for frosty mornings like this one.

6. Thank you Lord for my family. I couldn't imagine life without them.
7. Thank you Lord for my pets.
8. Thank you Lord that I have all I could need, and more.

9. Thank you Lord for the birds that I can see out my window...magpies...parrots...fairy wrens...

10. Thank you Lord for you Word...

What are you thankful for today?

When you comment:

1. My day will be brighter, my face smiling, and my heart blessed.

2. I’m likely to immediately go and explore your blog (if you have one) to find out more of your amazingness, and return the blessing.

3. I will then attempt to craft a response to you that will somehow fail to convey how much I truly appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness. I’m grateful for every word of encouragement you give, and don’t be afraid to share some constructive criticism also; there’s always more to learn. In short: thank-you! :)
