Thank You, God, that–
1. The furnace is working properly.
2. I could get up out of bed and do what I needed and wanted to do (I have experienced a time when I couldn’t do that.)
3. The car started and worked fine as I went on errands.
4.We have running water (it didn’t freeze overnight).
5. I had fun throwing peanuts outside for the blue jays, squirrels, and whomever wants them.
6. It was cold, but the roads were fine.
7. I enjoy going to the local store where I buy bird food and peanuts. The people are friendly and helpful, and always willing to take purchases to the car.
8. I’m having fun writing this piece!
9. The gift of writing You gave me keeps growing and expanding as I learn more and write more. I think it will continue to be an ever-expanding gift. That is a humbling, exciting, and challenging idea.
10. I have a warm place to sleep tonight.
11. I have enough, for tonight.
12. Finally, God, I thank You that You are here; You are interested; You care. You are interested and You care even for people who don’t care about You.
“…give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (I Thessalonians 5:28) NIV
