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.

I'm so glad you still feel that way about thunder. And yes to the Easter eggs. I think I might dye them every year for the rest of my life, whether there is anyone to help me or not. :-)

And of course YES to the risen Savior! Have a joyous Easter Marlene!

I love reading your Blessings!!! I'm reminded to be grateful in the little things.
BTW, I posted today about my fall Thursday night. I fell in the bathroom, broke my left ring finger and fractured my left ankle. I'm "Hopping" around like a bunny according to Madame!! I am wearing an air boot till I see the ortho Dr. next week. I'm so disgusted with myself for being such a clutz! Not a very good way to spend my Easter. I'm not sure if I'll even get to church because of the swelling. I can't imagine Easter Sunday and not being in church!!
Many Blessings to you my dear friend
Jane

So many things for us to be thankful for. Thankyou for reminding us of some that we may take for granted.

I hope that you are having a Happy and Blessed Easter. Even though I am here in the hospital, my heart is full of love for our Savior. I am so thnkful for His life, His example and the sacrifice He made for us.

Like you, I am counting my blessings.
Hugs, Lura

This always reminds me to be thankful for the simple small things. I LOVE it! I started just doing one on each blog. I guess that was easier for me!

I try to make it by pretty regular but I'm so sorry to hear about the storm that went over you. Glad to hear your OK. You talking about wishing your husband was there reminded me of when my father-n-law was flying and turned to my mother-n-law and said "I sure hope it's not the pilots time to go."
Love to read your blessings because I forget about some that you list.
I hope the weather gets better for ya soon.

So many good things in this list!! Coffee and bread are some of my favorites.

I've never tried cream cheese brownies - sounds SO GOOD!

Thank you, Marlene, for the sweet sweet gift (I received today)! It will be special to me for years to come!!
