Deut. 10:21 “You are my praise, and You are my God, who have done for me these great and awesome things which my eyes have seen.”

 

Thank you, Lord, for these blessings. . .

Seeing love through unloving circumstances

Growing up sheltered within an unsafe environment

Appreciating not always having enough to eat or nice clothes to wear

An angelic grandmother’s protection in my early years

A good mind and healthy body so I could attend school and learn

Four children to birth and love

Children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren

Brothers and sisters and half-brothers and half-sisters

Learning about Jesus and loving Him as a very young child

The vast amount of wisdom in the Bible

A loving heart for all God’s creation

A forgiving spirit to be used for all wrongs done against me

A contrite spirit after acknowledging my sins

A rejoicing heart and spirit to lift my praises and thanks to You

A thankful heart and spirit to appreciate each and every blessing

The many hearts that have encouraged and prayed for me. . .

Today, for the tools You have given me to use in Your name;

Tomorrow, though it is not here yet, I know it awaits me.

Amen and amen!

  1. Very touching Jeanne. It is amazing all the things we can find to praise God for if we will just open our eyes and look. God bless you.

    Bless you ~Zoey

    • Zoey! Your kind interest is much noted and appreciated. As the song goes: “You gotta have heart!” Well, our Lord says we gotta have hope too! Amen.

      Through it all, I don’t know what I would have done without hope. There’s four “H’s” that go together…HOPE, HEALTH, HEART and HUMOR. They all contribute to a satisfied life. Amen.

      Bless you, dear Zoey!
