Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

We are so much alike, it's scary...#151, 155 & 182 really strike a chord with me.

Great list of gratitudes, we are all so richly blessed if only we would stop and make our own lists. Thank you.

Arkansas Patti said...

You are making me feel almost like an ingrate. I really need to do this. Actually I could copy some of yours for we have a lot of the same blessings. Some really make me smile. Thanks for reminding us how much we need to be thankful for and to quit griping.

#155 - That's MY style!
#182 - The coffee aisle is my favorite in the store.

Phyllis said...

I had to laugh (and agree) with the ice one!!!

Angie said...

#174 - isn't that what you make PIES out of ?

Rose Mary said...

I love so many of those, too!

Hope you are doing well and staying COOL! It's still hot up here after that supposed 'cool down'. It will be a heat index of 105 today~and going up for the rest of the week:(

You list makes me smile and happy. Thank you for helping me think of the everyday blessings that we should be thankful.

I am having a blessed time here with my new granddaughter. I hope that you have a great week. Hugs, Lura
