Although this is for everyone it is especially for Helen!!!

The new job is going well, with a great team to support me! But I was thinking about what "well" meant.....

"Well" is thankfulness and "well" is having the ability to never ever give up."Well" is standing in the place of perfect peace, peace meaning nothing missing nothing broken and nothing lost!

So for today I will be thankful for challenges and opportunities and thankful for things that drive me crazy and thankful for things that I do not particulary enjoy doing!

I read this delightful prayer some time ago and want to share it with you:-

Thankful Prayer

Lord, thank you for this sink of dirty dishes; we have plenty of food to eat.
Thank you for this pile of dirty, stinky laundry; we have plenty of nice clothes to wear.

And I would like to thank you, Lord, for those unmade beds; they were so warm and comfortable last night. I know that many have no bed.

My thanks to you, Lord, for this bathroom, complete with all the splattered mirrors, soggy, grimy towels and dirty lavatory; they are so convenient.

Thank you for this finger-smudged refrigerator that needs defrosting so badly; it has served us faithfully for many years. It is full of cold drinks and enough leftovers for two or three meals.

Thank you, Lord, for this oven that absolutely must be cleaned today. It has baked so many things over the years.

The whole family is grateful for that tall grass that needs mowing, the lawn that needs raking; we all enjoy the yard.

Thank you, Lord, even for that slamming screen door. My kids are healthy and able to run and play.

Lord, the presence of all these chores awaiting me says You have richly blessed my family. I shall do them cheerfully and I shall do them gratefully.
