This week I am grateful for:

1. Supper, a game and a visit with good friends. This has been long overdue and was thoroughly enjoyable. We made a resolution to not wait so long to repeat it!

2. Email - so easy to communicate these days!

3. Candles burning bright, warming the house with their glow and reminding me of the One who lights my way.

4. A very cozy down-filled jacket, especially when the wind was howling here today.

5. Lower gas prices - nearly half of what they were this summer - what a difference this makes when we live in the country.

6. Morning devotions with my husband and messages that speak straight to our hearts and our circumstances.

7. Colourful fabrics, inviting me to cut and stitch and create with them.

8. Good food, hot and flavourful, abundant and varied - I know that I am blessed indeed.


  1. It makes such a difference when we stop and look at all the things we have to be thankful for, doesn't it. Great list, Crystal. What on earth would we do without email!

  2. This is a great list! It's easy to take those every day things for granted, isn't it? I love that you are doing these lists!

  3. Great list! Aren't these lists such a great way to put things in perspective sometimes! I know that I need these constant reminders otherwise I just take things for granted and feel down because I am not in the same position as someone else, etc. We too are loving these gas prices (especially since we will be doing a bit of traveling over the holidays). And isn't it wonderful to be able to do devotions with your DH and know that God is speaking to you in such profound ways!! I love doing devotions with my DH, but we don't have the time like we used to and we miss it--it is such a great way to get to know one another deeper on a more spiritual and emotional level!

  4. Yes...Thank You Lord for all You have given me!

    It's so easy to take everything for granted.
    This was a good post.

    Have a great week and a Happy Thanksgiving!
