Extra-Ordinary

“Most people think that God asks ordinary people to do extraordinary things, and He does at times. But most of the time He asks extraordinary people to do very ordinary things.”     

David and Jason Benham

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

James 4:10

Day 30

To whom am I thankful?

Not my lucky stars, because I don’t think stars are lucky to begin with.

My thanks goes to the one who made those beautiful stars.

What Christ gave me was the greatest gift ever.

I am so unworthy of this gift and His love, but I am so grateful for it. And it is to Him that all my gratitude goes.

I am thankful to him for all the things I have listed in the past month. He gave me friends, family, joy, sunshine and the ability and reason to be thankful. 

Because of Jesus, I CAN give thanks in everything.

 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalm 34:1

I hope you have enjoyed this month of blog posts.

I encourage you to try it yourself.

Everyday for the next month find something new to be thankful for. Being thankful is not just for one day in November.

Thanksgiving Day is just a day set aside to remind us.

 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

Day 22

Vacations

So after being grateful for work I am also grateful for vacations.

When I am working hard and I think of an upcoming vacation I almost get twice as much energy to get my work done and after a vacation (Even if it is a short one) I am ready to tackle work again.

And therefore I am also thankful for Sundays,

Sometimes when my week seems to be dragging on and by Saturday I want to quit work for good, just by taking my Sunday completely off then by Monday I am ready for another week of work.

I am very thankful for vacations how about you?

 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.  Genesis 2:2

Day 21

Work

I am thankful for work and the ability to work.
On days that I am tired of working I think of the people who are missing an arm or leg and still push on work anyway they can, then I realize that I have it easy, I have both my arms and legs and nothing to moan about.
It is an attitude that makes a person successful and content.

In the middle of a tiring project, if we take a moment to be grateful that we have a project, then we won’t mind it so much.

Give it a try.

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;  Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24

Day 18

Vacuums 

I am thankful for vacuums, because I like having carpet,

and what I like even more is having clean carpet.

In the winter time it is not much fun to get up and put your feet on a cold, hard floor.

I do like some hard floors but not when they are cold and my feet are warm, so today I am thankful for carpet.:)

 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people. Psalm 35:18

Dogs.

A man’s best friend.

Dogs are always happy to see you.

Dogs want to go with you everywhere.

Dogs want to protect you.

Dogs listen to you without interrupting. (Well most of the time unless they start barking) 🙂

Yep, sounds like a best friend to me.

What is your favorite kind pet?
