Because He is worthy

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe. 
Hebrews 12:28

Because He is worthy... holy... full of grace... I will give thanks.

He is the Most High... the King of kings.... and Lord of lords... therefore I am required to give thanks.

My Father is the ultimate gift giver... the one who bestows undeserving gifts.... because of Him I have things to be thankful for.


A bowl full of fresh fruit

Extra change to buy fresh fruit

Grocery shopping with miss Embery

A short rain shower in the middle of the day

An afternoon to sit with good friends and stare at baby Ben... oh the miracle of a baby... a clear picture of our Creator

Snuggles with baby Ben

Playing with little Lexi and seeing her grow up way to fast

Watching the girls watch fireworks... and all their ohs and ahs

Watching fireworks with the best friends anyone could ever ask for

Chats with new friends

A great time catching up with an old friend

Memories shared over text with another old friend

A week of cool weather... a nice break from the not so nice blistering heat

A fall off the youngin that the Creator used to teach me a lesson

A loyal dog who checks on me and helps me up after that dreadful fall

The courage given to me to get back on that wild one and finish the lesson on a good note

The wonderful knowledge of medicine that makes the pain not quite so unbearable

The way a hot shower feels on sore muscles

Realizing that while I am not as young as I used to be... I can still survive a bad fall without killing myself.... so maybe I am still that young(:

The joy found in a cup of coffee

Extra days at work which will provide the much needed cash to place in savings

Extra days at work which will pay for much needed vet visits

Finding out that I now have a student to give riding lessons to

How God provides for even the littlest things when we let Him work and stop trying to interfere

Celebrating our country's freedom

The gift of freedom which allows me to worship... pray... speak out loud about my God


Good food, with good friends

The walls of protection the Shepherd has around me

His unwillingness to let me settle
