It’s Thankful Thursday again

October 23, 2008 | My Jottings

Last week I introduced a weekly feature on the blog here. I know I’m being frequently reminded about how vital it is to live in a grateful manner. And I don’t want to grow into a bitter, complaining old woman. Bitter, complaining old women generally aren’t fun to be around. I want to grow in grace and gratitude.

Today I thank God for my vision. Blurry as it is without corrective lenses, I can still see. With my glasses, I can clearly see the gorgeous fall displays outside my windows. I can see the three huge deer that wander into our yard each morning. I can see my husband’s kind eyes look at me. And oh, the wonder of seeing the smiles of my grandchildren! I can see the words of friends typed in e-mails. I can read God’s Word. I can see. And I give thanks to the Lord today, for the amazing gift of sight.

Are you thankful for anything today?  I would love to know.

    Thank you Father that you care so much for us that you try to protect us in so many situations. Thank you Father that Maria is speaking before a group in Pismo Beach that may want to help fund us. Thank you Father that I almost have all 111 letters ready to go out to friends and family to help support me in the upcoming 100 hole golf tournament. Thank you Father that I am healthy enough to play in this tournament. Thank you Father that I have been accepted as a Care Giver and will work Sat, Sunday after Church and Monday in a whole new field for me. I will stay on at Choices and in November Susan will be back and I will have Tuesday off. Thanks again Julie, I don’t always remember to thank our Heavenly Father. Love, Dorothy
