I just wanted to wish all my wonderful readers a Happy Thanksgiving!
I woke up this morning to the sound of RAIN! Wonderful, delicious rain… I am so thankful that God gave us rain today. It’s been mighty dry here. Now we only need 19 1/2 more inches. ;-)
I also woke up with two little kitties curled up next to my body. I am so grateful for cats, and that I can have two of them living with me. Even if they want breakfast at 5am I am thankful for them. :-)
I was able to take a hot shower this morning. About two weeks ago, our hot water heater started having problems. We went for about a week without hot water while they were trying to fix it, before they finally just gave up and replaced the whole hot water heater. I am grateful for three things: 1) that my apartment complex was very prompt in attending to it, 2) that we haven’t had any problems with it since they put the new one in, and 3) that we are renting so we didn’t have to pay out of pocket for any of it. :-)
I am also thankful for friends like Beth and her family. This is the third year they’ve invited us to their house, and when we told them this year that Paul had to work and so we wouldn’t be able to get there until 4-ish, they were very willing to push their dinner back so we could join them. I am so happy that CNN let Paul take the day off today! And so dinner can be held when originally scheduled. :-) I am thankful that I get to spend this day with dear friends and with a dear husband.
Thank You, God, for everything You’ve given me! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! (And f you’re not American, well I hope you have a good day still!)
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before Him with joyful songs.
Know that the LORD is God.
It is He who made us, and we are His;
we are His people, the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving
and His courts with praise;
give thanks to Him and praise His name.
For the LORD is good and His love endures forever;
His faithfulness continues through all generations.
– Psalm 100
