Day 12 – Thankful for Hearing

Last night I woke to the deep rumbles of thunder, which, for whatever reason, I find to be a soothing sound! 😊

Today I’m thankful to be able to hear! Over 10 years ago I had such a bad ear infection in my left ear that I could barely hear out of it; I’m glad that got better! It left me with a slight deficit of hearing in that ear, but all the more reason to be thankful I can hear! We often are not as thankful for the blessings God gives us as we should be until those blessings are taken away for a time.

I’m so thankful to be able to hear, not only thunder, but music, the voices and words of my beloved family and friends, the wind in the trees, a bubbling brook, cascades and waterfalls, birds chirping, cicadas and tree frogs singing on a summer night, the silence of a mountain top, sounds of food cooking, questions and laughter of children, and the word of God being preached or taught!

I am so blessed!

What about you? Are you thankful for hearing, and if so, what things are you thankful you can hear?

  1. Corporate worship, laughter, brook gurgling and bubbling, flock of croaking sandhill cranes flying over, train whistle in the distance, really amazing music and musicians like La Boheme opera and Isak Perlman on the violin, banjo and fiddle bluegrass, loud, magnificent, cracking thunder

  2. I am thankful that I can hear the praise songs that I play on my TV, audio books like THE HIDING PLACE that I listen to as I travel, the voices of my children and grandchildren, and the purrs of my contented cat.

  3. The sound of coffee brewing and birds chirping, the sound of music playing in the background amid​ my daily activities, the sound of waves crashing, the sound of people singing along at a concert, in the car​, or in my home, and hearing those I love laughing. Such a lovely post! Blessings!
