12. Supplies to make delicious meals for my family
13. The freedom to homeschool my little ones
14. The joy of many sweet friends!
15. All of God’s precious promises
16. My brothers and their wives

22. Laughter of children at play
23. The hope of heaven!
24. Many wonderful books to read and be encouraged by.
25. Household duties, if I didn’t have those to do, that would mean, I didn’t have a home to live in.
26. Laundry to wash, dry, fold, iron and put away, all that means we are blessed with clothes to wear.
27. The four seasons, each season has its own beauty.
28. Music!!  Good music and uplifting hymns!
29. Again for my dear hubby.  His birthday is on the 29th of Nov.  πŸ™‚
30. My birthday! (November 30)  πŸ™‚
31. Last but not least my age!  Ok, we don’t like to get older, but would we really like to stay at a certain age forever here on this earth??  I just have so much to be thankful for, God is so good!

When I first started this list, I wasn’t sure I could think of enough things to say but I actually could list more, but I’ll leave it at this for now.   πŸ™‚   What can I say, but God is good and I’m so thankful for life, health, family and all the many good things God has bestowed upon me.  He is so faithful, good and kind!

Psalm 117

 O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.

For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever.
Praise ye the LORD.

Ok, now I’m off to enjoy the day!
