Works of God

works-of-godAny blessings this week?

I’m NOT thankful it’s cool enough to have the heat on, but I’m surely thankful for our new heater. Guess what? It actually blows out hot air! That’s so exciting.

I cuddled in bed with James tonight. (I’m writing this on Sunday night.) I read a couple chapters from Little House on Plum Creek. I smiled as I read and he asked questions.

Being able to cuddle with him and share a favorite book is definitely a blessing. I’m glad that he’s still a little boy. I know it won’t be much longer and I want to cherish each moment.

I was able to stock up on some groceries this week. I found some great sales.

My mom is a blessing too. This week one of my friends lost her mom to a one in a million medical things. I’ve been sad for her. I made sure to talk with my mom extra long yesterday.

Tomorrow, James and I will start our annual fall “blessing counting”. I made pumpkin shapes this year. Each morning, we will color our pumpkin and write a blessing on it. Then we tape it on the wall and watch our blessings pile up. Sometimes I think we need a visual reminder of how blessed we truly are.
What about you? Any blessings you’re counting today?

**Prayer request–Lee is applying on Monday at a Christian business. We’ve heard rumors that they hire people fresh from prison. Lee’s not so fresh from prison anymore, but he definitely needs a job.

    The pumpkins are a great idea!!! Inspite of
    what is going on in each of our lives I think we could all come up with a “bushel” of blessings!!! I will pray for Lee and the folks he will interview with today…God Bless you and your family Lizzie, Pam, South Bend

    I am thankful for the message our pastor shared Sunday regarding “obsessing” about things (for me: parenting, health issues, and relationships) and being anxious and how that can lead us into bondage. I was blessed, chastened, and convicted to focus on Philippians 4:4-9.

    I’m just now getting here to read about Lee’s interview! Exciting! Hope it went very well and praying he will have favor with the company!!!
