Lent 2020, Day 19: Thanks.

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

I Thessalonians 5:18

This morning, I walked into the living room, and upon catching sight of an Oriental lily in a vase said, “Thank you. It’s beautiful, like a natural firework. Thank you, God.” Zoe looked at me and then asked what was on tap for breakfast.

In the midst of the current climate of anxiety, I figured it’s high time to start counting some blessings. Here’s a few:

The aforementioned lily.
Z’s learned how to write her name in cursive.

This version of “A Closer Walk With Thee”.

The audio version, read by Ms. Lewis, of her memoir.

This teeny bit of good news that has occured due to the Coronavirus lockdown in Italy.
These Coronavirus memes.

What has you feeling thankful right now?

I’m grateful for the many years that were blessed with never having to worry about a pandemic and its aftermath. God has always been good to us and even in the midst of all of this He is still good. <3
