Thank you God

Today I'm thanking God for...

  • A beautiful, (and cool) day at the beach
  • Lots of help today at the picnic (parking, walking with us, helping with lunch, etc, etc)
  • Save travels to Ventura and back
  • A bit of time say goodbye to good friends who are moving across the world.

  • a wheelchair

  • Gary spoke today.  He looked at our antique dresser, as if he hadn't seen it before, and said "beautiful."
July 13, 2012
  • the Adult Day Health Care staff
  • homemade granola and fresh strawberries
July 12, 2012
  • sons-in-law who love our daughters

  • a cool, cloudy morning after a couple of really hot days
  • our friend John and the cool coffee cup he gave Gary (which he likes to hold)

  • homemade banana-blueberry muffins
  • sleep 
  • closed doors because it's one way God gives direction
  • Gary being here with me

  1. Rejoice always. This is such a good tab, Laurie!

    Hugs and prayers,

    1. Gotta keep reminding ourselves...
      Hugs to you too!

  2. Thankful I was able to pray with my mom today and help understand why she needs the Lord. She got teary-eyed and seemed to understand why we need Christ as our Savior. I'm thankful for the opportunity to serve my mom and dad. God causes all things to work together for good. Romans 8:28.

    1. Now THAT's something to be really grateful for!
