Giving thanks...

Giving thanks... seeking out the gifts of grace when sickness plagues and my body is weary.

 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 
and I will give you rest. 
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, 
for I am gentle and humble in heart, 
and you will find rest for your souls. 
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”  
Matthew 11:28-30

My list with the gratitude community at Ann's continues on this Multitude Monday...

... a few days of sunshine
... warm air
... the flowers that the April showers have brought
... family fun in the evening light
... family bike ride to see new friends

... a personal nurse
... a man who takes over when I'm down for the count
... a doctor who sees me on short notice
... a strong body
... blessed sleep

... health because I'm seldom grateful for it until I don't have it
... quality insurance
... healthy children
... limited medical bills
... the funds to pay for medical help

... a God who sees and who knows
... a friend in CA editing a Bible study for me
... peace and joy in the journey
... gifts of grace
... learning to be a grace giver


  1. Sorry you are under the weather. . .praying you feel better soon!

  2. Praying for you - but it is always a blessing to know your hubby can take over. Relax and rest, you will be better soon.

  3. Learning to be a grace giver. Is THAT ever a good one, and one that has hit me this week. You boiled down my week into one phrase! Hope you are feeling better. I promise to pray for you!


Thank you for your kind words!
