I’m currently making my way through 5 books and enjoying them all. I’m never happier than when I have several books on the go. I’m thankful for books and for the ability to read and understand.
I’m thankful for the promise of blooms on the May Day tree. The May Day tree in blossom is something I look forward to every year. It’s like Christmas, only I don’t have to do the work to make the celebration happen.
I’m thankful for the expectation of many good gifts in the months to come: a producing garden, a lush lawn, summer’s outdoor activities, maybe a trip or two, and a new (first) grandchild.
I’m thankful that “he who began a good work in [me] will bring it to completion…” (something I think the nonlordship salvation advocates overlook, by the way). I’m thankful for God’s sanctifying work, even though it it’s a process that isn’t always (or even ever) easy. I’m thankful that God teaches and disciplines his own.
Throughout this year I’m planning to post a few thoughts of thanksgiving each Thursday along with Kim at the Upward Call and others.
