Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

Counting My Blessings

71. A new advancement for M - M. achieved "Tenderfoot" in Scouts. The best photo I got was a posed one by the treee. I'm thankful for his opportunity to try new things. He and Hubby are going to an intro. to Scuba class Thurs. night.

72. My Christmas cards are almost done!

73. Antihistamine - it turns out I'm allergic to "cold". I break out in hives when the temperature drops. I'm thankful for not one, but three different kinds of antihistamines.

74. Yummy monster cookies!

75. Pecans (I was blessed with two different kinds of yummy treats at school today).

76. Understanding. That was my prayer in my "Daybook" yesterday and God answered my prayer.

77. Telephones - I got to talk to a friend on the phone last night. I thought it said "42 minutes" when I got off, but I think I misread it and it was an hour and 42 mins.


  1. Yes, praising the lord with you for all of these things. I use the phone cards a lot to call home. Lately here I found out that Google is the cheapest to call Brazil. I think it's free for call withing the US, you might check into it.
    Many blessings to you, dear friend.

  2. Dear is so wonderful to have so many blessings to count! Sweet blessings to you! Hugs ♥ Teri

  3. Beautiful list of blessings! Monster cookies..hmm...don't think I've heard of those, but they sound big which probably means good :)

  4. Hi, Annette! We can go on and on thanking God for so many things! Love your list.



Would love for you to share. Thanks for being a part of Our Ordinary Life.
