Thank You Lord

...for the kindness of a stranger.  It's not everyday that you meet someone so kind and generous who you never even met before.  It inspires me to be that person to others.

...for a clean and organized house.  I love sitting down when things are fresh and cleaned up!

..for your Word.  I am encouraged to show kindness and love.  I heard on the radio yesterday afternoon Focus on the Family was talking about approaching differences with kindness and love.  I felt that this was a timely message.  He spoke about 2 Timothy 3-  

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

He said have you thought that maybe they aren't talking about "Those people," but maybe it's religious people, "Us people."  I love this, and although my beliefs include convictions that others may not follow, it's God's kindness that leads us to repentance.   

...for baby kisses.

...for a hardworking and successful husband. 

...for my first bridal show experience this past weekend!  I made some new friends, and that alone made it worth it!  

...for health.  I can never forget to give thanks for such a vital blessing.  

“May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, 
LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14 NIV
