Thankful For My Home

I am so thankful to the Lord for my home. It is small, but adequate for all the things we need to live a quiet life. It sits on five acres of land in the Florida Panhandle "country", but very near our beautiful sugar white beach. I am so blessed and my heart hurts for so many people who have lost homes in these past months of bad economic times.

I also thank Him that both my husband and I are employed. Just ordinary jobs, not great salaries, but it is more than a lot of people have. It is enough to supply our needs and still be able to help others that need our help.

I also want to thank my hubby for working so hard on painting our bedroom and bathroom walls. He is so sweet in helping me with just whatever I get in my head to do. The man actually enjoys making me happy. How blessed can this girl be! I do not take that for granted. He is the love of my life.

What are you thankful for today?

So much! We don't have jobs yet but we have our faith that the Lord will provide for all of our needs:)

Ohhh it sounds lovely! And somewhat like my husband and me. We don't live near your beautiful beaches (but LOVE to visit them). We live up north in the cold and snow. But truly, none of us need 'excess'. Like you, God has provided us with a modestly small home that's just 'our size' and jobs that might not be exorbitant, but we are thankful for them just the same. And everything that God supplies, we have learned to be grateful for.
Thank you for the reminder.
