I Will Praise the Lord at All Times

A Thousand Gratefuls


In celebration of my blog hitting 1000 posts on July 4th, I am inviting you to join me in counting A THOUSAND GRATEFULS this month. To reach that number, we need to look beyond the ordinary and see the little things that God gives to us each day.

If we reach 1000 gratefuls by July 4th, I will send a Maine postcard to any that participate. (Be sure your name is included in your list of gratefuls. You may enter as many times as you wish.)

I'm grateful and praising the Lord for a safe trip to Seattle and back home (two very pleasant, very smooth flights), and for 3 days of good solo time with my 7-year-old granddaughter Genavieve. We ate lunch at Taco Time, took a walk behind the neighborhood, and watched Shrek Forever After; saw Cars 2 and walked all around the Supermall, ate lunch at Applebee's with dessert at Cold Stone Creamery; ate lunch at Chuck E. Cheese and shopped used books at the Goodwill Store. Yep. 3 days of good times.
