Day 242- Thankful for Negative Test Results and Kind Doctors and Funeral Directors

I’ve still been trying most days to walk the walk of thankfulness. My thoughts have been so scattered lately whether I’m walking in thankfulness or not. The last two weeks have been interesting, to say the least. Two weeks ago, I was exposed to someone who ended up testing positive for COVID-19. The next few… Read More Day 242- Thankful for Negative Test Results and Kind Doctors and Funeral Directors

Day 212- Thankful our Shepherd is right there going through the difficult valley with His sheep

Metaphorically speaking, I am a sheep, and the LORD is my Shepherd. He keeps on being great and holy and wonderful whether I pay attention to Him or not, whether I seek Him with my whole heart or not. I can in NO way ever diminish who He is. He keeps on being my Shepherd.… Read More Day 212- Thankful our Shepherd is right there going through the difficult valley with His sheep

Day 188- Thankful God sees our invisible pain and illness, and He cares

I’ve lived with invisible illnesses for years, the kind that doctors write off as not worth their time, a product of stress, or something that must not exist because it does not fit into the paradigms of the general population. I’ve had hidden pain since I was 17, not including the migraines that started before… Read More Day 188- Thankful God sees our invisible pain and illness, and He cares

Day 186- Thankful we’re not truly in isolation with God by our side

I was just thinking about someone long ago who got discouraged in isolation. His name was Elijah. You might say, “But didn’t he get discouraged after the miracle at Mount Carmel?” Yes, but if you think about it, he had been isolated for 3 1/2 years prior to that event, so even if he was… Read More Day 186- Thankful we’re not truly in isolation with God by our side

Day 160- Thankful for sacrifice, especially Christ’s Supreme Sacrifice

“He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities, and the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and by his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5 This last month I’ve observed that with all the talk of COVID-19, the news of people dying from it, and the fears associated with that,… Read More Day 160- Thankful for sacrifice, especially Christ’s Supreme Sacrifice

Day 147- Thankful that COVID-19 cannot separate us from God’s love (photos)

The adventure of the last few days was over Saturday morning as my husband and I returned the rental car safe and sound to its owners. The parking lot was crowded with lots more cars than at other times when we’ve returned a rental. The worker was very friendly! Before checking the mileage, she visibly… Read More Day 147- Thankful that COVID-19 cannot separate us from God’s love (photos)

Day 145- Thankful for God’s provision, protection, and peace

Thursday March 19th, 2020 dawned bright and beautiful. The little hotel room that my daughter and I stayed in across from the college was very nice and clean. We enjoyed our stay there, but we had to go pick up my son and all his stuff at the dorms, since COVID-19 prompted university shutdowns. We… Read More Day 145- Thankful for God’s provision, protection, and peace

Day 140- Thankful that deadlines are not God

This last week I spent a lot of time and effort helping my daughter meet deadlines for the upcoming Regional convention. There were some super anxiety-producing moments when technology did not cooperate and made meeting deadlines on time impossible. Thursday morning I got so anxious that I couldn’t think straight to talk on the phone… Read More Day 140- Thankful that deadlines are not God
