30 days of thanks.... day #9

Today…………….I’m thankful for a beautiful Fall day full of Sun Shine.
Coffee makers that make coffee…. Washing machines that clean clothes…. Dishwashers that wash dishes… New slippers to keep my feet warm….Doctors to help those that are sick…. My beautiful children who love me just for being MOM… no other reason!... The bestest bunch of friends and family ever!
But most of all.. I’m thankful for my Father in Heaver… Lord God Almighty for all His forgiveness of all of my mistakes and sins!  Its Him who makes all of the rest of this possible!  ♥

30 days of thanks.... day #8

Be Thankful….
........Get rid of expectations.
The first way to get rid of expectations is to not live in slavery to the expectations of others. There are some who feel like a failure if they let down the expectation of people who matter to us. Pleasing everyone is impossible. You will fail. This will hinder your thankfulness to God.
The second way to live in the slavery of expectations is to constantly expect your way to be perfect. You live under the slavery of something you can never accomplish, and in order to make your stay steady and perfect you expect those closest to you to play their perfect parts too. This leads to a world of hurt and self focus. This leads to a heart that cannot be thankful. ♥ Thank you God for loving me the way I am!!!!!!!

Today I’m thankful for Coffee!!

Thank you God for Coffee (Did you all honestly think this wouldn’t be on my list? LOL)
I’m thankful for being a coffee-o-holic…. Its brought some wonderful moments to my life of family and friends sharing fun coffee flavors with me and awesome coffee related pictures and items to bring a smile to my face!
Coffee has been the conversation starter that has given me an opportunity for different things!  I’ve made new friends... I’ve shared God... and I’ve simply enjoyed quiet time!
Today I’m a little extra thankful for coffee because I made to Starbucks in time this morning to be 1 of the first 100 customers to get my free Seasonal reusable  Red Cup!!!😁      Along with being one of the first  to get the seasonal peppermint mocha☕️

30 days of thanks.... day #6

🌀  Thank you God for the brighter mornings so that my drive to work is brighter!

Natural darkness is nothing more than the absence of light. Enter a basement without any windows, turn off the lights and close the door. You will find yourself standing in a pitch dark room. The moment you flick the light switch on the darkness will flee instantly

Spiritual darkness is a lot like natural darkness, it is the absence of spiritual light. Our body is the house (1 Corinthians 3:16, Matthew 12:43-45). Jesus is the light that fills our house. John 8:12
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
The power to turn on the spiritual light and expel spiritual darkness is already within you.... just need to flick that light switch.

30 days of thanks... day #5

I’m thankful today for my wonderful mommy!  The Lord blessed me with the best parents ever!  I grew up being a “daddy’s girl” for sure... but my mommy is my best friend!  She’s there for me always!  Yesterday was a tough day as I mourned the loss of one of my fur babies!  My mom was right there with me the whole time.  Trip to the vet to make arrangements for Autumn... hugs all day as I needed them... and lunch out to help take my mind off some of my sadness!
All that was made easy as I am also very thankful for the best job ever and all the folks I work with who helped me be able to stay home yesterday and tend to things and have my emotional time in peace!
My mom is amazing!  She’s strong... smart... caring... understanding... forgiving... supportive... and a gentle Christian woman!  I love her so much.πŸ’•

Today I’m thankful for pets!! Those sweet little hearts just love us so deeply!  The true meaning of unconditional love comes from a pet!
Today is a very sad day... as my sweet little ‘very old’ puppy Autumn passed away very early this morning.  We had just celebrated her 18th birthday with her in September.
I was seriously blessed having her in my life for so many years!  But it doesn’t ease the hurt any having her gone! Thank you Lord God for 18 wonderful years with my sweet girl!  The last of the Casey & Valentine clan is gone.  She is free to run over rainbow bridge to be with her mom and dad and brothers!  πŸ’•πŸŒˆπŸΎ

I’m thankful for the absolutely awesome time I had taking a little vacation with my daughter Jamie to see my son Patrick and his wife K Marie !  The time traveling with my daughter was so wonderful! The time spent visiting with my son... his wife and a couple of their friends was so much fun!  That trip was exactly what I needed!  God has blessed me with the best children ever!  Through all the ups and downs of raising children... through the trials of everyday disappointments... miscommunication... and misunderstandings... one thing that will always be constant is that I love my children unconditionally with all my heart!  Thank you Lord for my children πŸ’•
