Thankfulness on Thursday

I am joining other blog friends in giving thanks on Thursday for the blessings and the mercies of the previous week. Today I thank the Lord for the following...
  • A new cut and color. I know, I know, hair color and hair do's are totally frivolous blessings but blessings I am grateful for nonetheless.

  • The bounty of having plenty to eat and then some, a blessing brought into sharp relief as I cleaned out my fridge today. In fact, I was more than a little ashamed at the quantity of food I had allowed to spoil and thus had to toss. I am thankful for the Lord's provision in granting us food, good food, lots of food, to eat.

  • The privilege and responsibility of being a stay at home mom. Sure, cleaning out the fridge isn't exactly the stuff dreams are made of but I am glad for it, not for the gross-ness of such a task so much but for the opportunity to serve my family in the care of my home.

  • My husband who works hard to provide for us and take care of us and allows me the frivolity of a cut and color.

  • The healthy dose of self examination and corresponding conviction that accompanied the discussion in Bible study of "fruit" vs. "root" repentance.

  • The book of Jeremiah.

  • Chick-Fil-A.

  • Friends.

  • Cool weather.

  • Football Fridays.

Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside! 

What are you thankful for this week?

I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; 
 I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. 
I will be glad and exult in you; 
 I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
~ Psalm 9:1-2
