Day 19 ~ in my devotions yesterday the author quoted CS Lewis
and what really spoke to me was “the ignorant child who continues to play with the mud pies because he/she can’t imagine anything better (Ali’s Paraphrase)…I think so often I get a thought in my head and can’t imagine anything different. YET God tells us to
to seek him and He will provide for us!!! Ron often tells me “God hasn’t failed us yet, why would he start now?” I don’t know???? But….
So today I am thankful for God’s many reminders from His word, shared by others in my life to keep trusting him!!! Thank you God for all your reminders, your God winks, your spoken and unspoken reminders that I am loved and cared about and that YOU Won’t Fail Me!!! Because why would you start now???
Day 20 (catch up) ~ I am thankful for the peace that passes all understanding which only comes from God.
because sometimes I am in a crazy mind frame and God’s peace just envelopes me and calms me and I can’t explain it. I am thankful I don’t have to explain it, I can just claim it!!!
Day 21 (catch up) FIRST you may be wondering what am I trying to catch up too…25 days ago today I was spending time in the Word and reading about Lent and how we give things up to allow us time to focus on God. Some people give up bread or sugar or alcohol and I decided there were 34 days till Lenten season started and so instead of giving up something I would do 34 days of Thankfulness!!! And because I don’t write a blog post every day but I wanted the full 34 days of Thankfulness I am playing catch up to get me on schedule for starting the Lenten Season on March 2nd. Today, February 20th is the 25th day of the 34 days of Thankfulness…so now aren’t you glad I explained what I am catching up on 😂.
I am thankful that God provides safety when I do crazy and fun things!!! And for a husband who has a heart of love and compassion. And lots of air miles!!!! Wednesday found me flying out to see and spend time with a special friend for a few days. The whole trip was $11.20!!! Two long flights and tummy issues can be difficult but the good thing is I got in 3 ~ 10+ minute walks, tummy issues were handled without much difficulty and the take off/landings were uneventful!!! Those who know me flying and I are not the best of friends!!! So I give lots of thanks that the flights were uneventful!!!
That’s all for now as I need to get ready for church! Talk soon!!
