A Thankful Woman’s Book of Blessings

On Wednesdays, Judy, creator of an inspiring blog, A Thankful Woman’s Book of Blessings encourages participants to list their blessings, to give thanks for the five things in the past week and then link to Judy’s blog.

Be sure to also check out her other blog and her website when you visit.

This week I am thankful for:

  1. For the warm weather. It’s in the 70s here.
  2. For my dear friend Genevieve, who understands me so well and can make me laugh.
  3. 5. I am so thankful for the Moody Church Hour’s Thankfulness Changes Everything sermon. Yes, this Catholic is a fan of Dr. Lutzer and I learned so much from this particular podcast about how Christians should be thankful in, not thankful for, all things. One portion that really impressed me was the story of Martin Rinkert, a pastor in the 17th century who during the pestilence  of 1637 sometimes had to bury as many as 40 or 50 people a day. He presided over 4500 funerals including that of his own wife’s yet, Rev. Rinkert firmly believed in gratitude and penned the words that became the lyrics for “Thank God from Whom All Blessings Flow.” It’s an older hymn, but in my opinion certainly should be used more.
