If I am capable of writing about my child's snot and other unimportant things in my life I should be capable of fluent and inspiring thoughts on blessings. Right?
Or. So. It. Seems. An hour had ticked away on the clock this morning while I sat staring at a blank screen, trying to write something worthwhile and interesting.
My friend, Donna, has been posting for days now about what she is thankful for. They are fun and thought-provoking to read, and I have enjoyed them very much. Donna and I think alike, and I echo her sentiments. After all, I'm going to be her when I grow up.
Other blogs are doing it, too.
Slight blog jealously was nipping at my heels as my screen appeared even blanker than it did moments before. And that's not even possible. But then . . .
A phone call.
My pediatrician's office called. Seems they have gotten in a very limited number of H1N1 vaccines. Because there is not enough to go around, the doctors have complied a list of patients that are top priority. They called to schedule my oldest daughter's appointment for the vaccine. Seems she’s top priority.
This created in me - a new train of thought.
I'll keep it simple and narrow it down to four incredible and undeserved blessings.
May God’s blessings showered upon us all be given back to our fellow man tenfold. May none be forgotten and may we all celebrate with a heart of gratitude.
"Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power
and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom;
you are exalted as head over all.
Wealth and honor come from you;
you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
to exalt and give strength to all.
Now, our God, we give you thanks,
and praise your glorious name." 1 Chronicles 29:11-13
Happy Thanksgiving to all,
There was no winner for What A Word? Wednesday. Where were you all - on holiday or something?
Both answers were really close - but no cigar.
Max says - motorbike helmet.
Y'all come back next Wednesday - 'ya hear?
