My Spring Thankfulness List

I am new at blogging and have no idea what I'm doing.
I would like this blog to be fun, inspiring, and encouraging.
I'm having fun learning all about blogging and would encourage others in my age group to do the same! :)

I made a small and I'm sure, incomplete, list of some of the things I am thankful for today.

  • That Spring is finally coming - and there will soon be beautiful lilacs in bloom

  • For my wonderful husband, his integrity, his love for the Lord, his stability, and his love for me and our family

  • For our family and extended family - We do have some exceptional grandchildren! :) What fun they are!

  • For our health and the enjoyment we have RVing

  • For our Church and Church family, who support us with their love and caring

  • For the warm breeze coming through our window

  • For the birds singing their songs of Spring - there was a robin on our neighbor's rooftop yesterday

  • For friends, who make days fun and worthwhile

  • For a great place to live and a good place to walk and enjoy the outdoors

  • For a washer/dryer that is on the first floor (after moving from a 3 story house to a ranch)

  • For a free country - and freedom to read God's Word

  • And for the many other blessings we have and enjoy this day!

Oh, lilacs. They're my favorite. I can't wait to gather an armfull of blooms and bring them inside.

A prisoner of hope,

I love lilacs, too. I think they are my favorite. I came by because Jan told me you started a blog and I wanted to say hi!
