A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings

My dear blogging friend, Judy, over at A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings, hosts this meme every Wednesday. Simply list five things (or a prayer or any thoughts) for which you are truly thankful this week. Voicing my thanks helps put my life in perspective & realize that, no matter how bad things might be, there is still MUCH good surrounding me.

1) While I am thankful that we only lost power for 14 hours Friday/Saturday from the storms, we didn't lose any food from our fridge & freezers, & we only had minimal siding damage (which our neighbor has already repaired), I pray for those who are still w/out power, don't expect it for quite a while, & will most likely lose much of their food supplies.

2) While I am thankful for our home & excess belongings, I pray for those who have lost everything in the recent wildfires in Colorado.

3) While I am thankful for our country's freedom that we celebrate today, I pray for those oppressed within their countries & our own religious liberties that are being threatened right now.

4) While I am thankful for the recent, much-needed rains we received, I pray for those facing drought & dryness.

5) While I am thankful for the successful surgeries last month for several dear friends & my parents, I pray for those unable to afford needed surgery & those who have not survived surgery.
