No frills day...

I'm back to the basics today.

That's because I'm technically challenged.

BLOGGER has changed its new template access, and I haven't figured it out.

And when I go back to the original template-thing I can't figure out how to change the fonts, and the size and color, etc.

Hmm.

I guess I should be thankful....

.... which is where, by the way, I wanted to go in today's post...
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:18

The wonderful New Testament book of 1 Thessalonians has that verse in it ... which is pretty neat. Give thanks in all circumstances.

WHAT??? ALL CIRCUMSTANCES?!!!

Of course giving thanks in the frustration of not being able to blog like I like - seems trite.

And it is.

But I'm reminded of that verse up there... and when it says ALL CIRCUMSTANCES I'm reminded of how in the past when I've thought to thank God for the good AND THE BAD... that's when I get perspective.

I could go on and on here ... really I could... but I need to get on with my day.

I would just challenge you, blog-reader, to give thanks in ALL CIRCUMSTANCES.
Not that they're all good... or God caused them... but that is God's will that we give thanks in ALL of them.

It is so good what happens in my mind when I do that.

I'll leave you with another 'silly' (see yesterday's post for more)....

Mmmmm, yes, thankful in ALL circumstances.

Hard poll to answer today. I answered it, but I may change my mind everyday while it's up. I'm very grateful all of my senses still work well. I would sorely miss any of them, and find it hard to appreciate one over the other.

It made me think.

If you loose your hearing you loose the ability to communicate with people..The deaf have a very hard time.

Losing sight or hearing would be horrible...but I chose hearing..to never hear my son sing again? to not hear my grandaughter and grandson laugh??? Hmmm sight would be tough but I think hearing would be tougher to lose.
