Spiritual Sundays


Gratitude
God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
Just about every night my pal and I 'IM' one another and at the end of our chats we require FIVE gratitudes from one another. Some nights it is so easy. Some nights it FEELS hard, but really that fact that we are sitting inside our homes typing on computers says how blessed we are. While I might find myself annoyed with football on television as my hubby watches, I am truly blessed to have a husband, a TV and be sitting her healthy to be annoyed.
I have alot to be thankful for in my daily life. I have been worrying about the money for the house downpayment and praying for lots of business and my phones have been ringing. I am trying to remember to say a little 'thank you' to God each time I book another dog. I need to remember as we are moving to this new home that each of those calls, clients and opportunities was a way for him to give me this home. We often forget that he GIVES us our skills and everything we have is HIS.
This week my neighbor, Karen, brought me a book (after reading last Sunday's post) called God's Promises & Answers for your life. It was such a kind gift and jesture. She also brought Peach preserves which Duncan is enjoying on his PB and J sandwiches (PB and P??).
I have had clients, friends and fellow bloggers cheering for and praying for me this week and I have felt those blessings in my life.
So, today, take a moment to count your blessings and remember where they came from and to whom we owe the thank yous. If we truly counted them, we would be praying without ceasing as we should.
Thanks for reading and have a blessed Sunday

Blessings Cottagecheap...what an absolutely humble post of being grateful! Your words are so true, even some I read in your sidebar on how thankful we should be for comforts we take for granted far too often until we risk loosing them or tragedy besets us. How very wonderful the "grace providers" (from Clif's blog)around you that
have blessed you this week! I will
be sure to count my blessings! Thank you for the sweet reminder!
Enjoy your Spiritual Sunday!

Don't you think that we could never ever over discuss the bounty that God gives us? Evan through prayer I feel that I could never thank him enough. Thanks for the inspirational post! ~Becky~
