Practicing contentment by remembering the graces of the week and practicing gratitude by giving.
This has been a week of no routine. I'm thankful for the utility crews who have worked so hard out here on the East Coast in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene. I'm very glad that our power was only out for two and a half days and is back on now. My garden was spared and our house mostly protected as Irene's winds and rain came through our area.
:: I am thankful for companies who live up to their promises and are a pleasure to do business with.
:: Homemade tomato soup, applesauce and pepper jelly.
:: Accountability techniques
:: Extra hands for shopping day
:: The hospitality of friends while our power was out
:: Sunny days to dry laundry on the clothes line
:: Play dates and friends for GTot
:: HandyMan's hard work both at work (in the many tasks and challenges his job presents) and at home to keep our house maintained and improved.
Life is full. I am thankful.
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!
