The List that Never Ends: #411-420

 Have you no words? ah! think again,
    Words flow apace when you complain;
    And fill your fellow-creature's ear
    With the sad tale of all your care.
   
    Were half the breath thus vainly spent,
    To Heav'n in supplication sent;
    Your cheerful song would oft'ner be,
    "Hear what the Lord has done for me."

    - William Cowper
(1731-1800), in The Works of the Rev.
          John Newton, v. III, John Newton, New York: Williams
          and Whiting, 1810, p. 525
And the list goes on....

Today, I am thanking God...

411. ... for a nice, relaxing week at the beach with my husband's family.


412. ... for hammocks and good books and water, all right together....


413. ... for little girls who decorate themselves with flowers....


...and other little girls who decorate themselves with lizards...


414. ... for bicycle rides and a new bike to look forward to....


415. ... for cool trees to climb....


416. ... for laughs and goofiness....


417. ... for another year for my brother and me and a party to celebrate it with family...


418. ... for modern medicine and doctors to see when needed.

419. ... for the excitement of going on a trip and seeing something foreign...


...followed by the comfort of coming home and seeing something familiar...


420. ... for the promises of God - always certain, even during the storms...
