Joy Dare – Week 7

The unthankful heart… discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!  ~Henry Ward Beecher

    Amen to #145.  My husband too can fix or build anything.  Such a blessing. We received a Keurig as a Christmas gift.  I don’t drink coffee, and my husband drinks it rarely, but I’m anxious to try the hot chocolate.

      Thanks for visiting my blog Char! Yes, let’s get together soon. Why don’t you send me a message on Facebook and let me know your availability? Although this week will be sort of hard, but I could do Sunday late afternoon?

    Barbie, what a great list! I have a handy man husband too and I truly think they are few and far between, so we are blessed for sure.  And, I agree, gotta love those K-cups!  As I said, a great list!

    Oh my – raw honest of friends. I had a week where I needed my friends pour raw truth in me and they did. There is nothing more precious than that sacred trust where friends can do that. Blessings sweet friend. You’re a blessing to me.
