Thankful Sunday

This week my husband flew in a small eight seater plane to Ohio and back for a business excursion. He came back with some new (interesting to him) information about medical instruments, and a bagful of goodies from the company he visited.

I am thankful that he had fun, and came home safely.  

How often do we take for granted all times we come home safely from the traveling we do each day in cars, trains, planes, etc.  How we are kept safe at our jobs, our churches, the grocery store, the post office, and so on.  How we are safe in our homes as we sleep at night.
I will both lay me down in peace and sleep,
for the LORD only, makest me dwell in safety.
Psalm 4:8

It seems that we are bombarded with horrible news stories about tragedies happening around the world.  And yet, many of us have had so many days of peace and plenty.  I am thankful for each of these days.

What are you thankful for today?


  1. I can relate to your relief and joy that your husband has returned safely. I have running static of worry when Mr. Hausfrau's on business as he was last week. Today I am grateful for the new mattress that was delivered, a turkey and mashed potato dinner at home, and groceries in the kitchen.

  2. Another great post :) These always make me smile...and make me think!
    I am thankful for 2 extra days off work this coming week!

  3. Great post and something to think about. We do tend to take too much for granted.

  4. Rainy days when I can stay home and do nothing. :) blessings, marlene
