Sunday Blessing

I Am Thankful For...

  • For the teenager who is not doing dishes but is watching TV, because that means he is at home and not on the streets.
  • (Mine are all grown up!)
  • For the taxes I pay, because it means that I am employed.
  • (I'm retired, but the hubs is still working!)
  • For the mess to clean after a party, because it means that I have been surrounded by friends.
  • (No parties, but lots of pot lucks at Church)

  • For the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.
  • For my shadow that watches me work, because it means I am out in the sunshine.
  • For a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing, because it means I have a home.
  • For all the complaining I hear about the government, because it means that we have freedom of speech.
  • For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means I am capable of walking, and that I have been blessed with transportation.
  • For my huge heating bill, because it means I am warm.
  • For the lady behind me in my place of worship when she sings off key, because it means that I can hear.
  • For the pile of laundry and ironing, because it means I have clothes to wear.
  • (Ironing?)
  • For weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day, because it means I have been capable of working hard.
  • For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means that I am alive.
  • (No more alarms, but waking up each morning!)
  • and finally....

  • For too much e-mail, because it means I have friends who are thinking of me.

What are you thankful for today?

Awesome list. In these hard economic times, not all of those things can be taken for granted. Thanks for the reminder.

There are always things to be thankful for and we should be humble enough to recognize that.

I liked that list; it does help put into perspective some of our 'grumbling' because we really do have a lot to be thankful about indeed!

I'm thankful for Jesus :)
