Multitude Monday

Photobucket

We weathered the tropical storm relatively unscathed. We had no power for 12 hours but it actually turned into a wonderful day of board games and "roughing" it for our family. I certainly wouldn't want to live without power, but once in a while it is good to live without our modern gadgets.

Today I'm thankful for Blessings #611-625

♥ Being prepared. It's not often that you get a chance to prepare ahead of time for no electricity.

♥ The gift of apples and pears from a friend's trees.

♥ An unexpected credit at the doctor's office which paid for the visit.

♥ A friend who bought me this gadget a garage sale a few years back. Tomatoes go in the top, crank, and sauce comes out one side and seeds and skin the other.

♥ Finding out that Stephen's endocrinologist participates in Dan's new health plan. We love her and have used her for years. I wasn't looking forward to finding a new one.

♥ Selling enough bread to help us out with gas money for the next week until Dan gets paid.

♥ Again, the provision of tomatoes from another friend.

♥ The taste of apples right off the tree.

♥ Nathan who is living his dream this weekend. He slept over at the firehouse for two nights as they were on standby for potential hurricane issues.

♥ Nathan is also feeling better after a few days on prednisone. He had some sort of allergic reaction to the sun and had a rash everywhere and was swelling from his neck up and wheezing.

♥ Beautiful skies.

♥ My filling fell out on Friday and I have a gaping hole in my tooth. Thankful that though I can't get into see the dentist until today, I've had no pain.

♥ A day of board games under the shelter of a porch.

♥ Finding joy in the simple things in life.

and finally...

♥ God's protection.
