January’s Gratitude

This is the day which Adonai has made;

Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

~ Psalm 118.24

a list of a few things I am grateful for and that brought me joy this month…

coffee new books Randy’s job remains when so many have lost theirs a new roof new gutters that do not leak Yeshua Tobias’ soft velvety fur journals for writing and drawing mom brings me plants Shabbat the sound of thunder rumbling and rain gently falling the convenience of a grocery store, running water, electricity a soft warm bed the laughter of pure joy wintergreen flavored toothpaste silence fuzzy socks and warm pajamas green sprouts of daffodils and hyacinths pushing through the thawing ground prayer board games flickering candles the warmth of a fire being still the taste of honey snow resting on bare branches in January fresh herbs morning light filtering through the curtains starlight fluttering shadows creating a picture show freshly washed sheets warm laundry fresh from the dryer a well-told story mountain drives and backcountry roads the smell of fresh sage sunlight rainbows on dishwater bubbles a full moon a new moon goodnight kisses a bowl of warm soup

Psalm 100 

Shout joyfully to Adonai, all the earth.

Serve Adonai with gladness;
Come before Him with joyful singing.

Know that Adonai Himself is Elohim;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter His gates with thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name.

For Adonai is good;
His lovingkindness is everlasting
And His faithfulness to all generations.
