Chapter 7, Page 15, Book 10

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


As always I do have much to be thankful for. So here is the list for this week

I am thankful for

The beautiful summer weather
For my family
For my health and that of my family too
For my home (both of them)
For the fresh fruits and vegetables that we are enjoying right now
For air conditioning that gives us comfort when the temperature flares up high
For a swimming pool to enjoy at the campground
For soft breezes and shade trees
For wonderful summer evenings spent out doors.

The weather man said that our sun will set at 9:00 this evening and now our days will just get shorter each day. I'm so enjoying the longer day light hours and will miss them when they are gone.

For these and all my many blessings I am so truly thankful.

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say thank you?
William A. Ward

I hope your Thursday is filled with many things to be THANKFUL for too!
