My Disciple materials are spread out over the kitchen table awaiting me to begin for this weeks study. I am thankful for a successful orientation meeting yesterday. Our group is off to a great start and I am very optimistic that this study will be a blessing to all of us.
Before I dive in for this weeks study I find that as I sit in my quiet house I am thankful for several blessings.
My son had his family came for dinner last night. We don't get to see them nearly as much as we would like, but every opportunity I get to love on the grandbaby and them is a good one!
I got a culinary reprieve with multiple praises for the meat loaf I placed on the table for dinner, after the Dumpling Disaster it was a welcome sound to my ears.
Watching my granddaughter play in a big cardboard box. I cut two windows and a big door in the side and she had a wonderful time opening and closing the doors. It took her a few minute to warm up to the concept. After begin coaxed in by her aunt and daddy she finally decided that playing inside the box was a fun thing to do.
I am enjoying the last few visit from the hummingbirds. The Cana lilies at my sunroom window are all but spent and in a very few days they will be all gone and with their disappearance the humming birds will head for other parts looking for their sustenance. I will miss them but I have been very thankful for the dally visits and their tiny iridescent bodies and their erratic flight pattern.
I am thankful to the quiet of the moment.
My body had not quiet adjusted to the new morning routine just yet. But getting an early start on the day has been a blessing.
I am thankful that the run-off elections are over, for now anyway and my answering machine will not get filled up each day with political solicitations.
Lastly I am thankful for the fact that it is Thursday. My small group meets tonight and that is always a wonderful way to end the day!
