Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful to the Lord for:

- daffodils
- asparagus
- rain, rain and more rain
- strength to go through the mourning process
- clouds with silver linings
- salvation through Jesus Christ

I am thankful for all the rain we've had lately, and we've had a lot! After the drought a few years ago, I promised I would never complain about mud again, even when it's all over my white tile floor in the kitchen. I think about grumbling sometimes, but then I remember that horrible year and realize that I can put up with the mud. Life is all about attitude, isn't it?

Here are a few photos from wet and soggy Oak Hill:


Most years only a few of the daffodils actually bloom, but this year they put on quite a show!


After a barren and brown winter, all this lush green growth is almost claustrophobic.


Those are white dogs - really!
It's impossible for them to stay clean after ten consecutive days of rain.

"There are three things that are never satisfied,
four that never say, 'Enough!':
the grave, the barren womb,
land, which is never satisfied with water,
and fire, which never says, 'Enough!'
Proverbs 30:15,16
