Thankful Thursday, Here comes the rain again.
You know after a while I just get up on Thursdays and do this post without even checking with Sonya to see if she is still hosting it. I guess great habits are hard to break.
I noticed that the weather channel has quit making rain predictions. Last year they said it would be the driest year in history and it was one of the wettest for us. Our back yard is soaked and there is some heavy rain on the way. We have had so much rain I think I saw some animals pairing up this morning. Here’s a thinking question to get the cobwebs out of your head this morning. How many animals did Moses take on the ark with him? Keep reading till the end to find the answer.
First off I am thankful for all this rain. I know the ground is soggy but later on this year when it gets hot we will be wishing for more.
I am thankful that I got the new roof on my back porch in time. My wife was thankful that the job went well and that I didn’t say any bad words. I took last Thursday and Friday off to tackle that project. They were calling for rain over the weekend and we had a leak in that roof. Well we finished the roof around 5 on Friday and we got over three inches of rain over the weekend. Good timing on my part or should I say Great timing on God’s part.
I am thankful for small miracles. Like the little boy they found alive in Haiti this morning amid all the rubble. They said when they brought him out he raised his hands as if he was praising God. I think he was.
I am thankful that I am healthy. So many people around me seem to be getting sick. I keep taking my vitamin C, B and Fish oil and so far so good.
I am thankful for my little circle of blogging friends. This week’s sermon was all about staying in touch and having a strong circle of friends for support. The preacher sort of poked fun at facebook friends but he didn’t say anything about blog friends. That’s because he knows that blog friends are the best. You guys are the best of the best.
So how many animals did Moses take on the ark with him? Moses wasn’t on the ark Noah was. I am sure you all got that one but I have seen some people try to over analyze that question and spend hours on it.
Have a great day,
