Thankful Thursday

On a day like today - I need a reminder about all the blessings in my life!

I am thankful for:

1. The Lord's goodness: He has brought me through so many hardships and shows me His new mercies and joy everyday!
2. My sweet family - they mean everything to me
3. New friends here in Oklahoma - you are such an encouragement and have made my transition here so much easier
4. Music - it uplifts and soothes my spirit and brings me joy, especially when K dances and sings while "playing" my childhood piano
5. Clean crisp sheets on my bed
6. My hubby's job (he puts people to sleep). He loves doing what he does and for that I am forever grateful.
7. Learning experiences - although not always easy, I certainly grow and learn from them and realize it is one step closer to my full potential as a woman
8. The changing seasons: I love the fall and all the glorious splendor of colors. I love the crisp breeze in the air. I love sweater jackets, pumpkin breads, football, hay rides and fall festivals. I am looking forward to experiencing my first NE Oklahoma Autumn.

9. Mine and my family's health - such a precious commodity we often take for granted
10. My new blogging friends - you are my inspiration!

Hey there! It's nice to meet you via blogworld!! Welcome to NE Oklahoma! I hope you are adjusting well. I grew up in OK but have lived outside of the state for 8 years and just moved back last year! We are really pleased...great place to raise a family!!

~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
