Joy Challenge - Day 16 - Gratitude

I am going to combine my Joy Challenge with my Gratitude Challenge - because really, I don't think you can have one without the other!

"Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;
Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms."
Psalm 95:2

I am thankful and joyful for:

- rain showers two days in a row!

- Dad is doing so much better now that the doctor has said, "Let him eat whatever he wants."

- a husband who tirelessly serves his family

- a friend who prays

- safe travels for our daughter - in Paris again!

- wise words from our Pastor and Music Minister

- the Father's faithful provision

- birthday celebrations

- the little blessings the Lord slips into the every day moments

I thought this Crown of Thorns plant would never bloom - but today I noticed.....

a sweet little blessing

- a friend who, with great wisdom and love, challenges me to examine the things I believe, shares her heart and then listens.

"Iron sharpens iron, so one man (woman) sharpens another."
parenthesis mine :-)

Proverbs 27:17
