Thankful Thursday




Everybody says women are like water. I think it's because water is the source of life, and it adapts itself to its environment. Like women, water also gives of itself wherever it goes to nurture life...." Xinran 

Woke up this morning.....thinking...it's thankful thursday...I wasn't sure what to write even though I feel huge gratitude for so many things, Then it hit me.....something so simple...something in my everyday world...something that always gives me life and hope and peace.....something that I never want to take for granted......I'm thankful for....

-Water.....its free and incredibly satisfying...I"m not a fan of soda or juice. For me...water is the best drink to quench my thirst. 
-Water.....walking down by the lake and watching its calm with the geese and swans and ducks gives me tremendous peace inside. Not sure why but it always does.
-Water....when I'm feeling wiped...spent....exhausted...there's nothing better for me than jumping in a warm shower. It invigorates better than anything else. 
-Water.....I love swimming and feeling that freedom in letting go and letting the water hold me up
-Water....it blows me away that He created it as part of the world.... 

Happy Thursday Guys!!!

So simple yet like air we just take it for granted, don't we? It took years of a severe drought around here for me to really appreciate the simple pleasure of water.

It's the simple things in life that are most valuable yet we can take for granted. I sometimes thank God for the hot water when I'm taking a shower. I'm aware most of the world doesn't have the same luxury every day. Great blog! Thanks for sharing.

Yes indeed! We take it for granted, but there are some who don't even have a clean source of drinking water.

Very well said!
Nikki, you would love it here because we are surrounded by water and the best place in the summertime is walking beside it for miles! Water is like air, we cannot do without it. If we go without it for any length of time, we would die.
I also love the water of His word. To be drenched in it is life-giving. It keeps us alive and refreshed.
Thank you for all your inspirational posts this past year. It's been lovely getting to know you. Have a beautiful Christmas with your family and friends.

Christmas blessings & hugs,
Sandi

Your post reminds me of a comment someone once made to me: "Broken vessels often carry the most water!"

After visiting Kenya where water is not free and many do not have taps to get water from, I am always thankful for water. it is good to remember to be thankful. Thank you for reminding us.
