I Thank God...Day 14

I thank God for my CD player. It brings music to me that I would have had to be rich to enjoy just a few generations ago. I enjoy music so much. It calms me. It energizes me. It motivates me. It soothes me. It helps me to enter into worship. It helps me celebrate. It brings back memories. It fills a void when it just feels too quiet. Yes, contrary to popular belief and the normal activity and noise level in my house, it does occassionally seem too quiet.

I enjoy instrumental music the best. My favorites are hymns, Christmas music, hammered dulcimer, and worship music.

Think about the Christmas season. Wouldn't it be different without the familiar carols?

May God bless you this Thanksgiving Season. It brings our focus to the reason for the Christmas Season. Start now to think about new ways to show thanks and kindness to those whom God puts into your path and your life.

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!
