I'm Grateful


I'm grateful today.Grateful for the rain that is falling outside.It is refreshing and replenishing the earth that God has so graciously given us.I'm grateful for the antibiotics I'm on right now.They are ridding my body of the staph infection I have somehow obtained.I'm grateful for our apartment.Though small it is warm and dry.It is a shelter from the storm.I'm grateful for friends and family that I have been given in abundance.They are gifts to me from our Creator.I'm grateful today.Grateful to God for His goodness that flows in abundance upon our lives.Grateful to Him for salvation.We can look forward to eternity spent with Him because of the grace gift of His Son.I'm grateful today.Grateful for our black,fur covered clown.Our cat,Shadow.He provides a much needed source of fun and amusement in our lives.I'm grateful for Autumn.Our town is alive with a riot of Autumn color.Who knew that the passing of summer,a death if you will,could be so beautiful?If we stop,and really look at our lives,we will find so much to be grateful for.Gratitude in itself is a gift.Something to thank God for,don't you think?What are you grateful for today?

Right now, I'm tired and sleepy and I'm so grateful to a comfortable bed to rest in tonight while listening to the hard rains outside.
Just came by to say hello. Hope your staph infection clears up--I've been hearing a lot about these things these days.

That's a really good list of things to be grateful for. I suppose I'm still hanging on to summer here as long as it keeps teasing us with warm weather. I haven't quite embraced Autumn yet but that's inevitable.

you shared,
"I'm grateful today.Grateful to God for His goodness that flows in abundance upon our lives.Grateful to Him for salvation.We can look forward to eternity spent with Him because of the grace gift of His Son."

If we ponder the magnitude of actually having the God of the Universe love us, it's almost too much to take in. I don't think 'wondrous' even quite sums it up.

Hope you feel better soon. God bless. I've been missing you.

My dear friends Nanzce and Sparrow~
