Random Thankfulness

I haven't been posting a daily "I am thankful for..." like so many of you. But none the less I, too, am thankful!

As I have said before, it's truly about "Thankful Living." Each day I am mindful of something to be thankful for. I say "something" loosely, because there are a multitude of things on a daily basis.

In our bible study, we have been discussing "Godstops" with the ladies. These are simply the big and small things that cause you to think about God and His hand in your life as you walk, talk and live in this  day-to-day journey with Him. As Christians, we know nothing is really by accident--everything comes and goes through His hands.

Today, I am reflecting on my relationships with my family and friends. Such blessings!

I am thankful for another fun NASCAR weekend.

Now....may I tell you one other thing I am thankful for this morning?

It's a ..............r-e-f-r-i-g-e-r-a-t-o-r.

Yep, that's right. I have been without one for TWO weeks. Mine was hit by lightening, and the one I ordered naturally was not in stock in the local store. So once again we relied on the one out in our 5th wheel trailer. (What would we have done without that baby these last few months!) I did get some extra exercise though, because every time I wanted a teaspoon of jelly for my breakfast I had to run to the trailer. The good news is the new one is being delivered today!

If you haven't been thankful for a refrig, let it go out!


  1. Sometimes we forget to be thankful for the everyday things. It's easy to remember the big stuff. We are so blessed in America will all that we have. Some of my friends who travel to 3rd world countries say that most of us wouldn't last for a week.

    By the way enjoy the music you have on your blog.

  2. Isn't it interesting the things we take for granted until we have to be without them! So glad you're getting your new refrig. today.

  3. You never think about how nice life is until something like that stops. Hit by lighting? Wow,
    I am so glad you have one being delivered today.

  4. Great Post!! and yes...it's funny how those things we don't think about being without effect us...

  5. Okay, so now I need to see your new floor AND your new refrigerator! Looking forward to my tour! :)

  6. I completely get this! I am getting the last of new stainless appliances put into my kitchen next week. I've never been so happy for sinks, dishwashers, stoves etc. :)
