So Blessed

Tuesday, September 12, 2006

Today, I am thankful for simple pleasures:

  • The sound of children playing happily in the basement or the back yard.
  • The smell of roasting squash, garlic, and onions for the soup I'm making for lunch.
  • A good night's sleep.
  • A little time to spend in the Word after breakfast.
  • A vacuumed carpet and clean bathroom mirrors.
  • Chubby baby cheeks to kiss.
  • A puppy that is excited to see me.
  • Kids that need me to tie up their "super-hero capes" (receiving blankets!) at least half a dozen times each.
  • Knowing I am loved.
  • New friends.
  • Old friends.
  • An unexpected phone call from one of either kind of friend.
  • Hot, creamy tea.
  • Clean jeans in my closet.
  • Knowing I am needed.
  • Looking through the newest Stampin' Up! catalogue and making my "Dream List."
  • The feel of cozy, chunky yarn and sleek wooden needles in my hands.
  • The touch of cool black and white keys under my fingers, and the ability to make them produce music.
  • A pink puppy tongue tickling my toes.
  • Reminders that my life has purpose and meaning, no matter how often the Enemy tries to deceive me into thinking otherwise.
Great is thy faithfulness, oh God, my Father
There is no shadow of turning with thee,
Thou changest not, thy compassions they fail not.
Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me.

Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed thy hand hast provided
Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
