Blessing Wednesday

Hey all, I'm just jumping in today. Come join me, the water is fine:)

Today I am thankful for:

~The joy on my daughter's face as she starts to understand and excel in school work that's been so hard for her.

~A friend who will dance with me in the middle of the outlet mall just for fun.

~Hubby's understanding that I needed a little time away and making sure I got it. I was at my "Calgon, take me away" moment!

~Olives. The bigger the better. Oh so salty and good! I could eat an entire jar by myself. Really. I could.

~That God encourages us--just when we need it-- to do right, especially when He knows we aren't going to feel like it. I love that He loves us enough to give us gentle reminders and the strength to make the right choice. Because though I desire obedience and its blessings, sometimes I WANT to do the wrong thing in the moment. (Okay, and I kid you not, as I'm writing this here's the song that comes lie... )

And yes, I WAS listening to my Hymns station on Pandora. Hymns. Next thing you know it will be the Gaither Homecoming DVD (thanks, Mom)

Huge blessings to you all today! Share a few here before you leave!


  1. I am thankful you did not play the Gaithers today. LOL My husband LOVES them. I've even went to see them at a Gathering. Yes, yes I did.

    I do love hymns, though.

    I am thankful for holiday creamers.

    I am thankful that God has a sense of humor and knows just when to use it to make me smile.

    I'm thankful for the turning colors on the leaves of trees. Everything has a season, and it's beautiful. :)

    1. Really? Okay, I feel better now...I've only seen them on the TV screen;) And I LOVE that our God loves laughter!

  2. LOL on the Gaither thingy. Too funny!

    I'm thankful today that I get to skip town tomorrow...woohoo!

    And I second Jess on being thankful for holiday creamers. Mmm...

    And warm weather in October...because I know a hearty Iowa winter is just around the corner. :)

    1. Yep,we get buried in snow too, so we're enjoying beautiful days like today--it is gorgeous out right now! And I third you guys on the holiday creamers...I typically stock up. Have a great weekend, Melissa!!

  3. Today, I'm thankful for my hubby and kids, for good friends, and homemade pumpkin muffins and tea.

  4. Hey Julia:) I will share a pumpkin muffin with you anytime, friend!
