"Praise the Lord!
Praise the name of the Lord;
Praise Him, O you servants of the Lord!
You who stand in the house of the Lord,
in the courts of the house of our God,
Praise the Lord,
for the Lord is good'
sing praises to His name,
for it is pleasant."
Today is Thankful Thursday...although every day is a day to be thankful to our Lord for His goodness and mercy and kindness unto us, His precious children.
The past several days we have had some wonderful rain here in our neck of the woods...and I am so very thankful for this. Here is a little glimpse of the rain clouds forming over Lake Kerr one morning this past week as we took a little ride to get me out of the house...
And I am very thankful to see how the flowers, trees, and grass are growing as a result of all this wonderful rain.
This is a Rain Lily, which only blooms when we have rain...
I am so thrilled that the wisteria is blossoming again after we had cut it all down when we put up the new fence a couple of months ago!
The Crape Myrtles are starting to blossom,
and the little Drake Elm tree we planted in April is really growing as a result of all the rain:
Today I am thankful to be getting stronger since my little surgery almost two weeks ago. I made my first trip to Walmart today, which was tiring, but I am so thankful to have survived. Could not have done it without my sweet hubby taking the lead and taking care of check out, lifting, and carrying everything in the house. I am so blessed.
I am thankful for my comfortable home, this wonderful reclining chair, and the ability to mend the binding on our favorite "blankie"...
"For the Lord has chosen Jacob for Himself,
Israel for His special treasure.
For I know that the Lord is great,
and our Lord is above all gods.
Whatever the Lord pleases He does,
In heaven and in earth,
In the seas and in all deep places.
He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth;
He makes lightning for the rain;
He brings the wind out of His treasuries..."
"Your name, O Lord,
Your fame, O Lord,
throughout all generations.
For the Lord will judge His people,
And He will have compassion on His servants."
"Oh, give thanks to the Lord,
for He is good!"
