Finding God in the Little Things
Amydeanne over at The 160 Acre Woods offered up a challenge last Friday. We are to journal all month about finding God in the little things of life and then share our thoughts on each Friday of the month. I must say that thinking about this has made me more thankful this week.
This week's theme is Everyday Things. I know that Everyday Mommy does Everyday Tomatoes on Friday, so I guess this will be kind of like that, but these are things that I have done or used this week that make me very thankful!
The first thing I'm thankful for this week is my DVD player. I know that this might sound all materialistic or something, but it's really not. See, having a DVD player has given my brother and I some real quality time together this week before he moves away to college. We've been watching the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and laughing at our own little inside jokes about it. Great times.
Secondly, I'm thankful for lowering gas prices. I know we aren't supposed to complain, but I've had more than one ungrateful moment about the gas prices (there I said it, my conscience is now eased.) Anyway, around here they've been dropping (and I've heard it's a trend nationwide), plus I heard that gas would average around $2 by Thanksgiving. This will make visits to see my brother and visits from my brother more frequent because it won't be quite as expensive to drive back and forth! Yay!
Thirdly I'm thankful for keys, I know this is kind of random, but my brother drove off in my car last night from our church, and I rode with a friend. My brother had had my keys and his keys, and I was locked out of my house. So I'm thankful for that little key!
Which leads me to the fourth thing, I'm thankful for a friend's house down the road, so that I didn't have to sit in the dark and wait for my brother!
Which leads to the last thing, I'm thankful for a brother who didn't mind giving up some time with his fiance to come and give me a key so that I could go to bed, even though I was the dummy who handed him both sets of keys! (He's not really a thing, but I am really thankful for him, and I'm so proud that he is going off to seminary next week, but I'm sure gonna miss him, even if he does forget to take out the garbage!!)
Those are my things for the week, there have been many other things, but these are the ones I'll share! More to come next Friday!
