Thank you Lord for air conditioning!

Thank you Lord for my long term life term marriage to my high school sweetheart.

Thank you Lord for loving me even when I'm whining to you.

Thank you Lord for loving me even when I'm complaining to you.

Thank you Lord for forgiving me when I ask your forgiveness. I'm asking now for the above two!

Thank you Lord for food in my freezer, my fridge, and my cabinets.

Thank you Lord that I know how to cook a lot of things from scratch.

Thank you Lord for giving me friends that truly care for me.

Thank you Lord that you are my hope when all is hopeless.

Thank you Lord that Lowell is always there for me, even when he's busy.

Thank you Lord that Lowell is always calling me to look at something, to ask me something, to proof something, to share his ideas with me.

Thank you Lord for our Friday night date nights.

Thank you Lord for giving me this opportunity to write a blog. I've enjoyed it. It's got me writing again. Who knows where it will lead?

  6. Yes, I too am thankful for air conditioning - got a little muggy here the last couple of days.
    Neat that you can cook from scratch - I can only cook a few dishes from scratch.
    It is wonderful to have a loving and supporting husband by our side.

    Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us.

    Be blessed today and always...

  7. I just loved your thank you list! There is nothing so uplifting to the soul than thankfulness, and I know the Lord must smile when He hears these sweet words instead of our whinings, beggings, and complainings all the time!

    And thank you so much for our encouraging words today on my blog! God's Word is so uplifting, isn't it!!!!!


  8. What a wonderful thankful list Laura! I, too, have much to be thankful for! I've been a bit slack on my blog reading lately as I have a huge wedding up at the big house I work in that I am catering to, 350 guests. I don't know if I am coming or going most days, it seems! haha I do read, but don't always have time to comment. Yours is on my list of must reads though.


Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!

Your blog friend,
