Go ahead, sing along. I know all the Oregonians want to.
I am uber-thankful this morning. Oh, so easy on a morning like this, right?
Just wanted to say, for the record, that I am not generically thankful to the universe, or an unnamed higher power or thankful to myself for providing myself with these things I love.
I am thankful to a specific God, the ultimate God, the Creator of the universe and the lifter of my head.
He is the Alpha and Omega God, the Lion and the Lamb God, the Truth and Grace God.
God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Isaiah 57:15 in The Message says this:
A Message from the high and towering God,
who lives in Eternity,
whose name is Holy:
“I live in the high and holy places,
but also with the low-spirited, the spirit-crushed,
And what I do is put new spirit in them,
get them up and on their feet again.
That is the Holy God I am thankful to for all these gifts he gives me.
I thought I'd post some pictures of a few things I am thankful for. My grateful list goes on and on, but I couldn't run around and take pictures of everyone and everything. So, if you are not on my list here, rest assured; I am indeed thankful for you.
|The Sun, the Sun, shining in the sky...!|
|This wine came in the mail for me yesterday. That makes me happy.|
|I think this helped me sleep better last night. Even if it smells like old stinky boy socks. Still thankful.|
|Thankful for snow in the hills and a roof over my head.|
|Snoozin' Lucy. She is worn out from her mountain hike yesterday.|
|Seems I am especially thankful for beverages. Hmmmm. Mt Hood Roasters may be the BCE (Best Coffee Ever.)|
|Even if they are not thankful to me, EVER, I am thankful for them. I think.|
|What's not to love? Ruby and Ranger the goats.|
|Our pond. Just because it's beautiful.|
|I won't leave the Coopster off my list. Joy to the World!!|
