"We cannot do great things.....
only small things with GREAT LOVE".
Today I am thankful that this scene was my backyard for 10 years.
I saw such beautiful sunrises on the lake.
Thank you Lord for those special mornings.
Other times, like today, I am simply thankful for small, simple pleasures:
The shared laughter with loving hubby
As we run errands, poke around our favorite places
Like the thrift store at the library where I found used books in excellent shape for $1 or less!
Both of us love, love, love books.
I even thank the Lord for what may seem like "silly" pleasures such as:
Being really cold here in FL so I could wear my purple mittens.
I love mittens and purple.
or the sweet, lovely gift of just being in the home we love
lighting the fireplace, turning the tree lights on
(yes we still have our real tree up until Thursday)
and reading in front of the fireplace together
with hot coffee and my chocolate/mint tea.
I want to see the sacredness in each day.
I try very hard to keep my heart reflective so that I hear His voice,
To see the beauty, even when it comes out of the ashes, the difficulties, the pain.
I squeeze every drop of gratitude out of my days
because life is such a gift isn't it?
How was your day?
I know some of you had snow and others it is very cold.
Hope you all stay snugly and warm and enjoy your gift
of each new day!
