I’m thankful that February’s sun has a little heat to it, so that even though the temperature said -36C this morning, I can count on things warming up substantially during the daylight hours. I’m thankful for the almost four more hours of daylight since the shortest day of the year, and for the bright blue skies that let the sunshine show. I’m thankful for the constantly changing seasons that add variety to my life. Can I mention that I’m thankful for an efficient furnace, too?
I’m thankful for this year’s crop of grapefruit. The sweet grapefruit available in recent weeks are a good gift.
I’m thankful for my daughter and her car, which I’ll be using while she’s gone to Costa Rica to be in a wedding. Hooray for having a car 24/7 again.
I’m thankful that the sovereign God cares for me so that I can cast all my anxieties on him.
Throughout this year I’m planning to post a few thoughts of thanksgiving each Thursday along with Kim at the Upward Call and others.
