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.

#79 and #82 are my faves on this list. I am so thankful for this great Country and the men and women fighting for our freedoms!! And I have a Tempurpedic pillow and wouldn't trade it or my Scandanavian memory foam mattress for anything!!!

Molly said...

Just read your list from the beginning---great way to accentuate the positive! I don't want to copy yours, though many would overlap, so I'm going to be thinking about this and jotting down my own list as I think of them......

I am so enjoying your list. Can't say that I have ever found $100 in my wallet that I had forgotten about, nice!

I started my own list the first day you posted yours. Mine is on paper. It really helps me focus on the right things. Thanks.

Arkansas Patti said...

Wonderful list.You will definitely make 1000 and the great thing is that you make me realize I could too. It is a matter of being appreciative of things we normally take for granted and shouldn't.
Thanks for making me more aware.
Looking forward to more.

Marlene!
What a great post! My poor husband gets all the spam on his computer. He has received every one you cited! A pox on spammers (despite your diplomacy!)
