BLOGANUARY JANUARY 10 – WHAT ARE 5 THINGS YOU ARE GRATEFUL FOR TODAY?
I need structure of some kind to choose the five things I’m most thankful for, so I have decided to choose one item that pleases each of my five senses.
Sight. There are so many pictures of beautiful sunsets in these wide-open plains where I live. They are particularly gorgeous this time of year. Does temperature change have anything to do with their beauty? I don’t know but I appreciate the Lord’s artistic blessings of color.
Hearing. My sons and their wives bought me an unusual style wall clock. It is unique in many ways. When it changes hours, many moving parts provide action and music.
Taste. I tend to like heavy kinds of food which are more fitting during cold weather than during summer. So I indulge in tacos, chili, beans, and potato soup.
Touch. Oh, the comfort of silky, soft, and warm blankets, wraps, and robes!
Smell. Of course, we are still in the pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and cedarwood season. They are nice but even better is when I get to smell the homemade bread Renee bakes. Add the smell of a wood-burning fireplace to make it perfect.
Thank you. You must also love the beauty that God has made available to those who will open their senses to the loveliness of their surroundings. Blessings.
