Thankful Entries

The days are speeding by, it seems like yesterday was the first day of summer. Where does the time go?
               I keep a thankful journal and try to write often. One of my goals this month is to write something daily, whether a list or a verse. I’d like to share my entries:

Sunday November 1, 2015

               Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart ©. Psalm 32:11

               This verse makes me happy and thankful. Be glad means to “brighten up”. Rejoice means to “spin around” Shout for joy means  “to creak.. to shout..aloud for joy” .
               What a great way to start the day. Oh, Lord help me to meditate on this verse and keep my heart © “upright” in You.

               That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.  Psalm 26:7

               O Lord, help me to proclaim your greatness and praise your wonderful Name.

Joy dare – 3 gifts acorn –small
               What a funny thing to be thankful for – small things, but there are many small things that hold large significance.
1.      Ants – we learn so much from an ant by just watching – hard workers – diligent – can carry 10-50 times body weight Proverbs 6:6
2.      Seeds – I have been “sprouting seeds” and it is amazing after 4-5 days that little seeds “sprout” to become part of my salad – miracle of God
3.      A grain of sand- everything God made
               Just trying to think of small things can be mind boggling, so many in the plant and animal kingdoms that are good. God’s perfect plan He made it all. Thank you Lord!

               This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
 Meanings of rejoice (spin around) and glad (brighten up) are the same as Psalm 32:11, Praise God!

               Put on a happy face (and really mean it) and be a blessing to someone. Help me Lord to do this each and every day!

Have a thankful day,
