Continuing my month of expressions of gratitude:
I'm very grateful for my extended family. I know how fortunate I was to grow up in a close family where love was present in every gathering. I remember so many wonderful holiday dinners and the laughter we shared, especially when we played games after the meal was over.
- I'm grateful for the wonderful devotional by L.B. Cowman, Streams in the Desert. The Lord has used this wonderful little book to bring me through some very rough seas and violent storms. The author's wisdom has touched my heart and mind countless times.
- I'm grateful for my microwave. How did I ever get by without this wonderful kitchen device? (I actually can't remember because it was so long ago.) Two minutes, and my cup of water is hot and ready for the tea bag. Three minutes and the leftovers from yesterday are ready to be today's lunch.
And what about you? Have you expressed your thankfulness to God today for everything He has bestowed upon you, even the little things we hardly notice?
