Im grateful I still enjoy cartoons :)

Hello wonderful Lord of mine,
It's that time of the week again. A Time that has become one of my favorite moments lately. The time to remember all the wonderful things You do in my life. It is 12:20 am and I am still up because I am waiting for the beans to be done cooking, but it's great that it makes me be grateful at the very beginning of the week.

I read a verse posted by my sweet friend that said "A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart."
I strongly believe grattitude will bring me closet to bringing forth things form the treasury of a good heart, specially of I remember to give thanks for the bad just as for the good.

grateful for:
34* Adina Ruth Serrano!
35* my new puppy Lanky, and her sweet, playful character.
36* the fact that Lanky and Terry are finally starting to get along.
37* the rain.
38* the rain that falls in my house because of old roofs.
39* a hubby that listens
40* a clean patio. we finally removed the grass and weed growing on the parking lot.
41* my growing plants. I had nearly killed them and now they are back to life and greener than ever!

51* a job birthday! one year already??!
52* a job birthday that was a really hard day at the job.
53* a boss that humiliates you in public, but I kept a soft face (contrary to the killing-eyes stare I would have usually given)
54* another boss that listens to you
55* another boss that threw in my paycheck some extra hours' pay, even if I didnt filed them!
56* a friend that reminds me not to Thump but to sing.
57* being reminded that God disciplines us because He is Our Father and He loves us. :D

62* grateful for the burnt beans. and the smell all over the house!
63* a new faucet in the bathroom's sink.
64* a new skillet thanks to a friend's help!
65 *Bible verses on my cellphone my mother-in-law and my father-in-law sends me. (before I get any complaints, and the verses from Eunice, Jenny, Tito and many more too!)
66* a feeding-children ministry I have been praying for starting to take form.

I pray You may work in that area of our hearts. Thank You, for You!
