"To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever." Psalm 30:12

I have been keeping a list of one dozen reasons to be thankful. I find that this helps to relax me for the night.

Here is today's top 12...

1. a Husband who thinks Win/Win.
2. his hard work to take care of his family.
3. a Daughter's happiness at being a Christian,
4. her love of the Scriptures
5. and her love of the Brethren.
6. a Son for his notable improvement at school,
7. his creativity
8. and originality!
9. another Daughter's pleasant, easygoing nature,
10 she is a hard worker
11. and she likes to hang out with me.
12. this time of life.

The Good Seed

I want to introduce another blog I have started along with my friend and sister-in-Christ, Mango. Our aim is to share with others what we have learned in our study of the Scriptures.

I hope you will join us there.

We were thrown from a train,
miraculously freed from a careless conductor.
I escaped unharmed while she lay wounded by the tracks.
I closed my eyes, repelled by the gashes on her hands and feet.
Blindly, I held her and cried for help.

A physician arrived,
strangely enough, on a stretcher.
His form flickered like a flame.
The wounded woman, herself, flickered in my arms.
Ministering to the woman, the physician and I,
I held her hand while he washed her feet.

She glistened as a shining pearl ring
appeared on her finger.
We looked with love into each other.

Pro 15:15 " he that is of a cheerful heart hath a continual feast. "

Tonight, my Daughter walked into room with a big smile on her face. I asked her why she was smiling as she grinned at me.
"Tell me," I asked, "I want to smile too."
She said, "I smile naturally!"

"Must be nice," I replied, smiling back.
