November 18th- Difficult Experiences You’re Now Thankful For

I love the Thankful topic for today!  Difficult Experiences which we are now Thankful for!  The best one I can think of is last year's Thanksgiving when our pump (we are on a well) broke and we had no water--on Thanksgiving day!  Here is our picture post we did during that time: "Running Water..." and here is another post which I will also post below.  :)

Be Thankful!

Every time you do the dishes… Be Thankful!
Every time you wipe the table down... Be Thankful!
Every time you mop the floor… Be Thankful!
Every time you take a warm shower… Be Thankful!
Every time you wash your hair… Be Thankful!
Every time you take a sip of water… Be Thankful!
Every time you clean the toilets… Be Thankful!
Every time you brush your teeth… Be Thankful!
Every time you feel warm water with clean soap on your hands… Be Thankful!
Every time you wash your face… Be Thankful!
Every time you water your animals… Be Thankful!
Every time you water your garden… Be Thankful!
Every time you do a job you hate (that involves water)… Be Thankful!

We’ve been learning to be thankful for the running water which most people always expect to daily be there for their use. If you are not thankful… try resisting to turn on the sink when you need a glass of water, go without a shower for a while, don’t wash your dishes, don’t flush your toilets, forget about your flower pots, don’t wash your hands, don’t wash your face,… are you thankful yet?

I certainly am thankful for water!!

Praise God from whom all Blessings Flow,
