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. Air conditioning. Yes, again, but with a new fervor. Our a/c blew out in the midst of a 100+ degree hot spell. The air was stagnant with little breeze. We wound up going to a hotel for a few nights, which was blissfully air conditioned. Now we’ve got a new system! Alleluia!
  2. Old black and white movies. Last night I finished Monkey Business with Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers. Simple and fun. Dignity between the husband and wife even though there was lots of silliness.
  3. Good health. A few friends are struggling with mysterious nerve ailments and thank God, I’m fine.
  4. Watermelon and cherries, just two of the bounties of summer.
  5. Christian radio, specifically Family Life and Running to Win, which featured programs that just hit the target as a family member struggles with the adversity life sometimes throws at us.

    Love Cary Grant! They just don’t make movies like they used to. Watermelon (or waterlemon as my almost 4yo calls it) & cherries are perfect this time of year.

    Glad you got your air back…I know a lot of people lost it at the worst time this year.

    Great list. Love old movies. I can relate to air conditioner problems.
    Amazing how God communicates to us in so many different ways. Like radio. God bless!

    Hello from Maryland! You are fortunate to be able to cool off in a hotel. We probably would have ‘stuck it out’ like we did for 5 days after that bad storm recently. Nevertheless, we lived at the local swimming pool.

    So true about old movies. Your smart to notice the relationship between the husband and wife. They don’t make them good anymore. Remember all the musicals?

    I love how you mention “dignity” between the spouses in the old movies. A friend of mine often laments that what is lacking so much in today’s society; and specifically, in marriages, is “decorum”. I am sorry for your friends’ sufferings and pray they find healing in Christ. Thanks for your faithful participation in this meme!
