Thankful Thursday #10: The Miracle of Rain

Today I am thankful for the amazing amount of rain that we have gotten in the last week or so.  I have heard that we are officially out of “drought conditions” here in my neck of the woods.  Everything looks green and lush and the air even smells better.  We still need more to refill the farm stock ponds and the lakes, but we are on our way.  Thank you Father, for the miracle of rain!  Cleansing, refreshing, restoring rain!

Thankful Thursday #9: Family Weddings

Today I am thankful that I was blessed to attend the wedding of my beautiful niece Jessica and her adoring Derek.  If ever there was a match made in heaven, this is it.  And it is a marriage with Jesus as the center and foundation.  What joy to witness!  My heartfelt congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Derek Rogers.  May Jesus continue to be the center of your relationship, and your anchor in every storm!  Much love.

Thankful Thursday #8

Today I am thankful for drains that actually, well, drain.  That’s not something I think about much really.  I just run water down the drain and assume it’s going to go where it’s supposed to.   Over the weekend we had a cold snap with a few inches of snow and everything.  So much for it being mild the rest of the winter.  🙂  Anyway, whether it was frozen or just blocked I don’t know, but last Friday night the large drain out to the sewer stopped draining.  Water backed up into the bathtub, flooded the garage, the whole thing.  Not a lot of fun.  Which left us with 3 stinky people, lots of dirty dishes, and no clean laundry.  And the potty situation was just, well, eeewwwww!

Monday evening the Roto Rooter guys were finally able to get to my house.  Bless them, they apparently had a very busy weekend.  And in a matter of 20 minutes from the time they got there to the time they left, they had cleaned out the pipe so everything could flow smoothly the way it was designed.  A. Maz. Ing.  The thing that was causing such a huge mess in my life was taken care of just like that *Insert finger snap here* by someone who knew what they were doing.  Pretty sure there’s a spiritual application somewhere in this little adventure of mine.  🙂

So what are you thankful for today?  If you have a blog link up your post below.  If not, share with us in the comments.
