    --A PRAYER OF THANKS-----

    Lord, thank you for this sink full of dirty dishes,
    We had food to eat.
    Thank you for the unmade bed,
    It was very comfortable last night.
    Thank you for this heap of soiled laundry,
    We have good warm clothes.
    Thank you for the bathroom complete with spattered mirror,
    soggy towels, grimy sink, and an assortment of clothes
    thrown at (not in) the clothes hamper,
    It's still very convenient.
    Thank you for the finger-smudged refrigerator,
    It has served us faithfully for years. Inside are cool
    drinks and enough leftovers for another meal.
    Thank you for this oven which must be cleaned today,
    It has baked many goodies to perfection (or close to it).
    Thank you for the leaves out there that need raking,
    We enjoy the private yard.
    Thank you for that slamming screen door,
    the children are healthy and able to run and play.
    Lord, the presence of all these chores awaiting me today
    says that you have richly blessed this family.
    I shall do them gratefully and cheerfully.
    Amen




    you may have seen this before, but I thought it was still a good one to share.

    here is another one.

    CHOOSE TODAY

    Choose today to face the challenges, and you'll come away stronger. Decide that you will find a way to do what you know must be done, and the value you create will endure long after this day is over.
    Rediscover the sense of real, honest and irreplaceable fulfillment that comes from moving in the direction you know is right. Experience the satisfaction of knowing that you are truly making a positive difference.
    Plant seeds of hope and encouragement with those you encounter. Keep your heart filled with gratitude for the beauty and the possibilities that flow through your world at all times.
    Enjoy the reality of being alive and aware at this moment in this place. Look for the positive in every situation and you will find it.
    This day is your opportunity to put your dreams, your values, your hopes and goals and desires into action. This day is your opportunity to allow the best that is inside you to flow out into the world.
    Jump enthusiastically into this day and live it as if everything you become depends on the path you choose to follow. For on this day, it does.

    Kris, I learned from YOUR discussions how to cut & paste, & I'm copying these from ABall, too! In fact, our family has the special no. in church tomorrow, & for my part, I just may read "A Prayer of Thanks." (If I can keep from crying while I read it!)

    Prairie Home, You sound like me. I have a bad habit of crying over sweet, sentimental things. I do our children's sermon each Sunday and sometimes just praying for our children makes me choke up. Beth
