Gratitude Challenge and so much more

I decided I would join the Gratitude challenge I had saw on someone's blog.  I started off with a bang for all of 3 days and then excuse after excuse came up with why I could not do it. 

I have been making lots of excuses lately-why I treat my husband, kids, inlaws and friends the way I do.  Nothing is my fault, it happened because of this or that.  I make excuses for when my house is not clean or responsibilities are not met.  I make excuses when I don't want to do something.  I make excuses for not reading my bible or going to church more.  I mean I am at church most every service but I am always in class, nursery or somewhere doing something.  I have been so busy doing things that I have not been meeting with or serving God.  But even that is an excuse because when I had a chance to go to the preaching service,  mostly didn't and I had an excuse for that too.  But that is just it they were and are excuses.  I have no real reasons for most of it.

Well, through a series o…

2010 Gratitude Challenge-Day 3

Today, I am thankful that the clinic I went to today is paying for my medicines.  I went to the Dr and she gave me several prescriptions.  I was praying for where the money was going to come from to pay for them.  The lady looked at me as she is stamping them and says, "We are going to pay for your medicines for you today".  I was like so thankful, to them and especially to God.  it was such a blessing. 
God bless,
Pat

2010 Gratitude Challenge-Day 2

This month, I’m participating in a Gratitude Challenge hosted by  Brenda at Garden of Learning.  The challenge is to write a post each day in November about something that I am thankful for. That’s 30 days of gratitude posts!  I don’t think that will be hard to do, as I am thankful for so much every day of the year.

For Day 2-I was getting ready to go to bed last night and I was thinking about my day.  My oldest son is sick and so is his wife, they are both undergoing tests to fully diagnose them.  The Dr is thinking he has diverticulitis and are looking at fibro possibly for her.  Then on top of that their oldest and my only grandson has PKU and he got a Little Debbie Cake and ate the whole thing, for him that is VERY serious.  Well, anyway I guess you are wondering where I am going with this for being thankful but this is it....I am thankful that as sick as they are God is in control.  He is the Great Physician and He can make them better.  I am also thankful cause when I …

I thought long and hard about what should be my first post of what I am thankful for......I am so thankful for my family.

I am thankful for my family...one, because they are my family and I love them.  But, more important than that is that we all live and try to serve God.  We make mistakes, we have issues but no matter what, we are always there to love, pray for and help each other.  God and family, they are the most important thing in my life. God bless, Pat
