"The Lord is my strength and my shield; in Him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exalts, and with my song I give thanks to Him.”
~ Psalm 28:7
It does require some quiet meditation and thoughtful reflection to be thankful for the little things in life. But there are a few things I don’t ever want to take for granted in life. They are:
► Christian parents!
► Godly husband!
► Healthy children!
► Minnesota's Four Seasons. Especially WINTER!
"Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow?" ~Job 38:22
► Housework. Yes – housework. It's easy for me to honor God by being a housewife and mother. I LOVE it, and I love being available 24/7 to my family. I am thankful for the opportunity.
► Bible Commentaries and Books by Puritan authors. There is Biblical wisdom and common sense out there!
► The fact that I can walk into any room of my home and find a BIBLE.
And then -- of course -- there are those little things in my life that I'm thankful for because they simply make me SMILE:
► Cash. That it’s still valuable in America and I can use it to buy SaltedNutRolls® so as to not have said candy bar appear on credit card statement.
► That zany groundhog. He keeps us Minnesooohtans humble. You betcha!
► SCRABBLE® Keeps me sharp!
► Socialism! As a SAHM, I am now equal in society to the pro-choice, feminist, career women who despise me. We can all join hands in unity now. YEA!
