A Great Blog

I just found a great blog.
It is at: http://www.shabbyoldepottingshed.blogspot.com/

She has loads of scripture, and does special days too.
Maybe we'll do some.

I loved the "Thankful Thursday".
She listed 5 things she was thankful for.

Sometimes it good to take a moment and do that,
actually think about what we are thankful for. Write it down.
See how blessed we really are, and thank Him from whom all blessings flow.

I go through periods when i am better at doing this than others, so I was grateful for the reminder.
When I do take time to think about it, one thing just leads to another and it's wonderful.

I will thank the Lord for being able to get out of bed in the morning. Then I thank Him for being able to walk, to see the beauty around me, to smell the fresh outdoor air and hear the birds.
Well, you get the drift here. Sounds a little cheesy to some I guess. But I just end up being thankful all over!!! And, for good reason. We do have a lot to be thankful for.

So, what are your 5 things today? Only five now, don't get carried away. =0))

Love you all.
Blessings,

Barbara Jean

Your kind words blessed me, thank you so much.
I like taking a stroll too, and can kind of get lost marvelling at all the things God created.
Maybe you'll wish to join in the Thankful Thursday meme at Sonya's Truth 4 The Journey!
