Hello everyone and here we are with another award, and a first time for this one for me! Thank you so very much Keziah for nominating me for this award! If you have not checked out her blog before, this would be a good time to do it, say “hi” and maybe even give her a follow to encourage her a bit.
INTRO: This tag is based on Luke 19, the tale of the ten lepers. In the story, Jesus heals ten men with leprosy, a terrible disease that removes your capacity for pain reception. Sadly, only one of the ten healed men came back to thank Jesus, and it is after this man that we aspire. Let’s be like the one leper, a man who’s gratefulness won over his joy.
Rules for this award are:
1: Use any picture in your post that expresses gratitude
2: Pingback to the original post at 1 Grateful Person
3. Share the intro
4: Share what you are grateful to Jesus for
5: Share a passage from the Bible about gratitude that means something to you.
6: Tag anybody
Okay, I’m supposed to share a picture that expresses gratitude. Hmm, that’s a tough one.
I think this pic fits, the little pine siskin was grateful for getting some free food on a cold winter day, and I was certainly grateful to get this picture. Hopefully it fits anyway.
Short list of things Steve is grateful for:
Life that God has given me.
Friends. (that includes all of you)
My animal friends.
Being able to walk down my forest path, which most of you don’t know, I wasn’t able to do for some years due to health.
The health I have. Hey, things could be worse.
Like I said, a short list, otherwise this would be really long.
Several nice warm beds.
Especially my human who entertains me with funny things he does and spoils me!
“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.” Psalm 103:2
Now, my nominees:
Well, everyone, that’s it for now, I hope to see you all again tomorrow, God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
