thankful thursdays: 2nd edition

Greetings, readers, and happy almost Friday!  As promised, here is my next installment of thankful Thursdays.  I shall start today's post with another quote that echoes the sentiment desired with this series.

How wonderful is that to reflect on!?  When we start giving thanks for the things we have, we tend to realize just how much we have to be thankful for and that what we have is, in fact, MORE than enough.  Such a simple idea and yet so very true.  Practice it - I dare you.

So without further ado, here are a few things that have made me smile and subsequently offer thanksgiving to the Lord:

1. sun rays beaming out the top of fluffy clouds, drawing my eyes to the heavens amidst the power lines

2. two nieces that love to vogue and consistently take me back to my childhood, prompting visions of being a carefree kid with my big sister (work it, girls)

3. not one, but two lovely conversations with one of my nearest and dearest fousins. she lives so many miles away that I truly treasure a phone call with her, an activity I typically avoid at all costs (talking on the phone, that is). not only are we kindred spirits, we also share a love for stripes as can be evidenced by the picture below

What are you grateful for this week?  What made you smile and led you to reflect on the goodness and provision of the Lord?

**shoutout to Elisa for letting me know what she was thankful for last week.  I, too, am thankful for family and for you, dear fuzz!

thanks for the in-post shout out, Cheech! And LOVE the pictures. The sky one a) blew my mind and 2) made me yearn for that glorious Texas sky. Praise God! I am thankful for the existence of the book "A Severe Mercy". Reading one of the most beautiful love stories I have ever read, and realizing more about this ever Mysterious, abounding-in-Love God that we serve in the process, has blessed me so very much this past week. I love you, Rach, and miss your sweet self. Thanks for sharing!

E - knew you would appreciate the sky and thank you for sharing your thanksgiving. The book you mentioned was in my queue, but when my order shipped, they said it was out of stock. Blast. But thanks for the reminder. I'll need to get that one re-ordered!

It's truly very difficult in this active life to listen news on Television, so I just use internet for that reason, and obtain the most recent information.
