I have absolutely no idea what to write about since there are tons of things running around in my mind that I am so thankful to have in my life. Yesterday, there was no doubt. Devotions led me deeper into the WORD, and that put it front and center.
So a list of random thankfulness that have flittered through my scattered brain tonight seems rather appropriate.
Mom’s voice waking me up this morning singing, “When the red, red robin”¦”
Off-beat Christmas music that pulls at my spirit even more than Perry Como or Nat King Cole or Andy Williams or Carpenters. (I never would have believe it was possible – but it’s true.)
“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.”~1 Chron 16:34
Two random ladies blessing me at church with their words and thoughts.
A wise man’s words about defeating the ‘obs-tackles’ that the evil one places in our path of our God given vision for our life. (Still thinking about this one, but I need to go back and read a few chapters in Nehemiah again)
The quiet of a morning walk after church with the girls.
“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.”~Col 4:2
An early afternoon nap while Sunday dinner cooked (I am really not cut out for early morning risings anymore).
Roast chicken, potatoes and gravy. Yum!!!!
Devotions and taking time to write a note of Thanksgiving to one of my former teachers. A teacher who was one of the ones to help me see what a teacher could be in a classroom of crazy kids with Senior-itis.
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.”~Ps 100:4
Hallmark, DVD’s, Christmas movies that inspire the Spirit.
Pine tree smells that can blossom in my home even without a live tree. (sniff, sniff – can’t talk Hubby into one).
A silly kitten that runs into a wall as she tries to turn the corner into her room when I am bringing her supper. (I hope she doesn’t hurt herself – I can’t afford any new vet bills)
A few teacher-preachers on TV.
God’s vision for my life.
“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ‘God is a consuming fire.'”~Heb 12:28-29
As I re-read these Gratitude Attitudes, I began to see a pattern of my day. A pattern that points to the vision. Still a little blurry. Still a little ways off in the distance. Time for prayer. Time for clarity. Time to kick the ‘obs-tackles’ (don’t you love a Southern accent?) to the curb. If Nehemiah could do it, so can I.
