Thankful Jar 2014

The above pictures are of my 2014 thankful jar that I
emptied tonight new years eve .
I unfolded each little note some on newspapers, receipts.
Whatever was handy for me to record my words of encouragement,  thankfulness, simple little things that brought a smile to me or someone.
 I wanted to share some of the little notes

January 7th our 25th anniversary we had made plans on where we would go, however winter brought us Snow and Ice with a cold low of -7 degrees .  Plans changed we stayed in where we were warm.

Feb. 6th   hearing my sister laugh at something I said  for the first time since losing her only son
If I can make her smile or laugh for one minute that is one less tear .  My heart breaks for her and Bill.

Several times this year I have been given clothes, shoes from Lisa,  Barkers and Missy for each gift  I am thankful and blessed.

May September and October I traveled to my home town to spend a few days with my family
we visited friends  and family .

Glad I got to visit with Marcia in May and September.  Her hugs and saying to me you just don't know how much I have missed you ....
Rip ...Marcia ....

Dec 17th.  I received a text from my co worker that brought me to tears ...good tears..
humbled to know God used me to uplift someone 2 days before as they shared with her today. Thank you Lord for allowing me to be uplifting to some one

Notes cards flowers gifts from my secret pal at church .

For reaching my first weight loss goal April 9

Many sweet words from my husband

Picnics of Vienna sausage and crackers

Lunches at the park just my husband and I

Walks at 8 am during warm months ...prayer walks ..I was praising God as I walked one morning not knowing anyone had saw my hands up .  This lady stops me as I meet her and said can I ask you were you Praising God back there and I said yes....she said you blessed me .... tears that God would allow me to bless someone ...we never know who we are uplifting by just raising our hands in Praise to God .

Try a thankful , blessings jar

Multitudes on Mondays~~Thankfulness~~ Contiunes

Multitudes on Monday 

For several years I have joined in this

it has sure gave me a more sincere appreciation 
for the little things that I would have other wise passed by 
I have found its in the little things that give us 
the most blessings

I stopped posting each week in April 2014 this would have been week 205
  below 6948 was were I left off
however I haven't stopped just that I record things I am thankful for  each night in my

Trying to count the multitude of blessings is like standing on the shore trying to count each grain of sand

Giving thanks To GOD

For Monday a new beginning of a week, on this day I was blessed to have received clothes that just fit  from someone that didn't have a clue what I had asked for last year in my journal, I had listened to a podcast last June 22 2013 and Joyce Myers was talking about how GOD cared in the little things our wants and our needs and to make a list of both pray  ask GOD  and watch when they come ...I PRAISE GOD that
he cares about the little things .......
Tuesday ~~

So for today I  just had to share that I hadn't forgot to give thanks just not blogging each week 
maybe I will pick it back up

I am using a thankful jar also that I will take out New Years eve or Day and read all the things 
that I have been blessed with this year 2014
I will post those things so if I lose the little thankful pieces of paper I will have them here on 
blogger . 

Christmas Lights (oh what a feeling)

Each night during Christmas 
my husband knows the love for the lights being on when I come home from work.
I open the door and step inside to have 
the warmest, coziest feeling ever 
I sit and enjoy the lights , no Tv, No music 
just quiet time 
oh and the candles have our little house 
scented with the smell of Christmas 

                                        View from the outside porch and looking inside
                            Had to share the warm, cozy feeling I get with these little lights
                                                   oh so simple oh so wonderful
                                                           Home Sweet Home
