What song are you most grateful for?

The song that meant the most to me as a little girl growing up in church was The Old Rugged Cross. It is a simple song that says so much – He died for me. He suffered for me. He loved me.

“Then He’ll call me some day to my home far away, Where His glory forever I’ll share.”

What better song, what better promise, could there be?

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for that old rugged cross and all that it was, is, and is to come.

Friendly Fill-Ins

This is a fun meme co-hosted by 15 and Meowing and McGuffy’s Reader. Be sure to visit and join in the fun!

Friday_Fill-In_Badge

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is _________________.
  1. My least favorite thing on my daily to-do list is ___________.
  1. I could really do without ___________________________________.
  1. I would love to have more ___________________________________.

Here are my responses:

My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is 1. Reading my devotional and Bible chapters and 2. Feeding, watching, and photographing the birds.  I haven’t been able to spend any time watching and photographing them this week, though. There’s been too much to do otherwise.

My least favorite thing to do, aside from always being in the bathroom, is washing dishes, but someone has to do it.

I could really do without family drama and the guilt that comes along with it, regardless of who is at fault. I could also really do without smoking neighbors.

I would love to have more land and it be out in the country somewhere. I don’t need or want a bigger house, just more outside room for flowers, trees, a garden, etc.

Please be sure to visit last week’s Fill-Ins post on PS Annie! to enter the kitty treat contest!

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

Who in your life are you grateful for?

I am grateful, first and foremost, for The Holy Trinity- Heavenly Father for the Gift He gave to us; Jesus for being such an awesome brother that loved me enough to sacrifice His own life for mine; and the Holy Spirit for His protection and discernment.

I am grateful for David, who chose me over probably better prospects long ago, and stays with me through all of my imperfections.

I am grateful for my children and all the lessons they’ve taught me and the love they’ve given me over the years.

I am grateful for my parents, that they allowed me to live, especially my daddy, who loved me very much.

I am grateful for all of my grandparents and the unconditional love that each of them offered me.

I am grateful for true friends and the love and guidance they offer and for just being themselves. AND for tolerating blubberfests in public and aren’t afraid to proclaim the Word no matter who is around.

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for the loved ones you’ve placed in my life.

What touch are you grateful for today?

I am grateful for the hugs of my husband and daughter and those of a friend that we hadn’t seen in probably 20 years.

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for the hugs of loved ones.
