Thursday Thirteen: Everyday Miracles

Thursday Thirteen: Everyday Miracles

The other day I posted some of my thoughts about miracles. Since then, I’ve been thinking about the “little” (but not so, really) miracles I overlook in my life. Technically it’s Friday am (yep, another 4:00 am post – what’s up with that?) so I’m not going to bother linking to TT but I thought I’d toss these out for my own personal benefit. Like David did in Psalm 103, I need to take time to think about the abundant blessings in my life.

  1. A God that loves me no matter what and sent his Son to die for me

  2. A husband who truly loves me and loves to take care of me

  3. A best-friend relationship with my sister

  4. A home of our own

  5. A work partner I truly enjoy working with (we’re on customer service teams at work)

  6. Two paid-for, dependable vehicles (albeit aging!)

  7. Two beautiful nieces and four adorable nephews

  8. A sweet relationship with my dad

  9. A mom who sacrificed much for me and my sister

  10. A sister who remains my best friend to this day

  11. A decent relationship with the in-laws!

  12. The cut-in-pay my husband took with a new job recently – amazingly enough – has not affected us like we expected. Actually, his checks seem like they’re getting bigger!

  13. Thirty years of knowing Christ as my Savior

I like your word cloud! I did mine, but didn't post it. I may do it again and get it posted.

I love your list, too, and you're right that things we take for granted are pretty miraculous at times.
