Man... with this quarantine stuff the days blend together and I am getting the sense of what "retirement" might be like. With John home I don't know what to do. He is always in the office working and It's hard to do my usual M.O. if I put in headphones I don't know he is… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Days 492, 493, and 494
Funny how a country wide shut down facilitates a "letting go..." Today I am grateful for the study time I got. Today I am grateful for my family's safety. Today I am grateful that John helped me to plant some things in the garden. I sure hope they grow. Today I am grateful for the… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 491
My study has led me to much self examination and contemplation. I can see how many of us, including myself, are caught in "self-righteous" behavior with "accusing hearts." Problem arise when we fail to truly live gospel principles. We may not be able to control the events in the world around us not the people were associate with, but we can focus on the intents of our own hearts. Our problems are primarily spiritual and God is clearly trying to get our attention.
I am grateful for our mandatory "down time." I really have used the time to clean up my house and my life. Yesterday was "home-centered" church. It was awesome! Got to play with grand kids including a fire on the back porch, a blue tape race track and hop scotch, and hamburgers. Life is good.
Some how I missed yesterday. Today was a good day. I am grateful that Lilli helped me and we were able to clean the whole house... with bleach. Whatever the germ is, we are ready. I am grateful that John helped me take stuff out of the back of my truck and did a grocery… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 485 and 486

I am… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 484
Today I am grateful for a little sleep, people who are kind, Pizza delivery, and the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am also grateful for the the wind chimes in my yard. It is soothing.
Had a great discussion about the restoration with Lilli and John today. I am grateful. I am grateful for friends that check in on me.
I am grateful for my scripture study this morning. I didn't think I could concentrate because I didn't sleep well and my guts are on fire (no more raw onions for me!) However, the Lord blessed me and I got in 35 minutes of learning and pondering. Today was a hard day... deep disappointment and… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 481
I am grateful my house wasn't really on fire. I was awakened early by the fire alarm on my one day to sleep in. I hopped out of bed and ran out of the bedroom. John was up and had already decided that the furnace was having an issue. I wasn't convinced because the burning… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 479
