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

133.  Raw honesty of friends.
134.  A grieving heart that is pulled closer to the Lord.
135.  An extra long weekend.
136.  A shiny quarter found on a muddy trail.
137.  The prayer covering of friends I’ve never met.
138.  Laughter.
139.  Slowing down.
140.  A lovely Valentines dinner with my sweetheart.
141.  Watching my two oldest children grow into God-fearing, beautiful adults.
142.  For this book that I get the privilege of reading and reviewing soon on my blog.
143.  Freshly mopped floors.
144.  His overwhelming peace.
145.  A handy-man husband who can fix just about anything.
146.  Warm, buttery pancakes.
147.  The gift of K-Cups for my Keurig from a friend.
148.  Time to relax and recharge.
149.  That He loves me, despite my faults.
150.  A visit with my aunt, who I haven’t seen for three years.
151.  Friends who text, “I’m thinking of you”.
152.  Feeling insignificant, but knowing He is all I need.
153.  Standing on His Word that heals all my disease.

  1. 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. 

    1. 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?

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. Your lists of joy are always a breath of fresh air for me, friend. . . so raw and honest. thank you for encouraging me today! (and yes–I’m this far behind in my blog reading) :)
