Sunday Sunshine ->Thankful Thursday

Practicing contentment by remembering the graces of the week and practicing gratitude by giving.

Sunday slipped away, then Monday and Tuesday followed suit.  So here I am, joining up on the Thankful Thursday parties to make up for my absence on Sunday.  For those new, you'll find highlights of the blessings in my life in bold.

Sunday slipped away because my parents were here visiting and we were busy being entertained by my ham of a daughter, and whiling away the summer afternoon playing cards and games on the back porch.  I had a craft fair in Montrose, PA on Monday and while sales were lacking compared to prior years, my mom and I still had a great time in the shade people watching!

I'm thankful that a local pool has a free toddler program that will run for two weeks.  I'm glad that I have healthy tomato plants this year and that my garden is growing well.  I love seeing lilies in bloom and hear the creek running, even though the rain has been sparse.

In light of the heat wave gripping our area, ceiling fans, window fans and cool nights are all things I am thankful for today!

I hope you can look back, and forward, to find the joy dotting your story!

Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light.” (James 1:16 -The Message) May the light of the Father brighten your week!


  1. Well, I'd gladly trade you some of the rain we've had over the last 6 weeks for some of your dry heat!!!!

    There is so much to be thankful for ~ I love your list!

  2. Oh, if it were a dry heat, it would be a great blessing. However, it's the hazy hot and humid days of summer in the North East US! So, you can take it!
