Day 244- Thankful for meteor showers and the joys of finding God

A few nights ago I went outside with my husband and watched the Leonid meteor showers. We enjoyed watching together for a while and saw a few meteors. Then my husband went inside and I reclined on the swing, all wrapped up in my king-size Microplush blanket that I got on end-of-season clearance a few… Read More Day 244- Thankful for meteor showers and the joys of finding God

Day 191- Thankful for Beautiful Reflections (photos & video)

A few days ago I went with my family to a large lake to go “fishing”. We didn’t catch any fish, but I caught some beautiful memories via photography. Aren’t the blue sky and clouds beautiful, both in reality and in the reflection? The interesting thing about these reflections is that there can be a… Read More Day 191- Thankful for Beautiful Reflections (photos & video)

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 137- Thankful I can come to Jesus just as I am and don’t have to clean myself up first
