The Same Old Things
In this venture for 1,000 thankful things, I have set my own stipulation of not repeating a thankful thing as the central theme for a post. That does not, however, mean that I was not thankful for “the same old things” in a given day. I find myself thankful for some of those things virtually every day, like Love, Grace, and even Trees. Others arise periodically, like Blossoms, Handwriting, or Cut Flowers (which I just received for my birthday - fresh cut sunflowers from their garden!).
While I enjoy discovering more of God in seeking a new thankful thing for each post, I am also thankful to be able to dwell on the past thankful things. It’s almost as if each new thankful thing is an arrow that I get to add to my quiver - an arrow that I can always retrieve, because whether I can or not, God always slays the monster. Whether that monster is worry or depression, anger or bitterness, pride or selfishness. God will always have the Victory.
