12 Things I Am Thankful to God For


  1. My couch, which is very long and comfortable.
  2. My apartment, which is quiet and provides me with peace to write, reflect and pray.003


  1. A firm bed. For a long time I slept on a mattress that was sagging and bumpy.
  2. My singleness. I have grown to love it. I have freedom to do as I wish—in the Lord’s will.
  3. My truck. It get me where I want or need to go.002


  1. Books. God always provides me with a good book to read on my lunch break or in the late afternoon.006


  1. Television. Though evils abound, there are a few good things to watch.
  2. My Champion juicer. It never quits and I love what it gives me.
  3. A few paintings. I picked up a few nature paintings, mostly copies. I love to look at them.
  4. Jigsaw puzzles. It seems I’m always doing a puzzle. It helps me pass the time when I’m bored.
  5. My new Nixon camera. Now you can see what I see.010


  1. My painting business and all my wonderful clients. It keeps me out of trouble and puts food on my table.

These twelve things are just a start.  There are so many things and so many people I am thankful to God for.  Thank you Lord for all you have given me!
