The List that Never Ends: #651-660


The unthankful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings! 

~Henry Ward Beecher


I am thanking God today...

# 651. ... for air conditioning on these crazy hot days!


# 652. ... for a fun "girls' night out" at the late movie and an after-midnight trip to Wal-Mart (always entertaining) with two of my sisters-in-law.

# 653. ... for beautiful (and free!) wildflowers for my table, found on my daily walk with Harvey...


# 654. ... for the fun of having all of my husband's family here for a few weeks.

# 655. ... that some friends' lives were spared during a fire in their apartment building yesterday (please keep them in your prayers, however... they, along with several other families, lost pretty much everything they own).

# 656. ... for the comic relief that pets (and kids, for that matter) provide during stressful times... for instance, we learned that Harvey has OCD this week when I realized that he was spitting out all of the round kibbles and only eating the triangular pieces from his food.... crazy dog. :o)


# 657. ... for an empty "to iron" basket (for the moment, at least!).

# 658. ... for progress made on a very big project.

# 659. ... for access to clean water.

# 660. ... for the freedoms we enjoy in this country, and for the brave men and women who have fought to protect those freedoms.

Joining Ann today....
