~Thanksgiving in July, Day 2~

I'll be honest. Today has been one of those days where you either laugh or cry, and I ended up crying, not laughing. But there are still things to be thankful about!

The Bible says:
Psalm 118:24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.


So even though the circumstances of my day have not gone well, I can still rejoice!

Today I'm thankful for:
***The gorgeous, gorgeous weather. Oh, it is so beautiful today! It has been hot and muggy, but we have a respite from the mugginess!

***And that leads me to: I had a good hair day! That may seem trivial, but hey, have you ever had a terrible day, and had a bad hair day on top of it? Every time you pass a mirror, you feel worse and worse! The humid summers do not treat my hair kindly, so I was quite happy for a good hair day!


***The box of Celestial Seasonings Honey Vanilla Chai tea I found at my desk today. I totally forgot I had it at work, and enjoyed my cup immensely!

***The lovely blueberries, cherries and peaches I got today at a fruit stand. All of them were grown here in Michigan! Mmmm...some are going in the freezer, and some are going to be enjoyed in the next few days!

Hooray for God!! He got you to look to Him instead of your circumstances!! Isn't God GRAND!!!!

I TOTALLY understand a good hair day. I have them rarely. It is hot and humid here, so when they come, I get excited!!

The blueberries look delicious!!!! My mouth is watering!

Tammy, I'm sorry you had a bad day. What better way to fight the devil than to thank the Lord!

Even in the valley, God is good.

Tammy,
I mentioned your post on my blog. I can't link people over to it but your Thanksgiving in July is such a beautiful idea.
I probably won't send anyone over but thanks for a great reminder of God's goodness

God is pleased when we choose to be thankful in the midst of a trying day.

The blueberries look just yummy!

Tammy, I had one of those days, yeterday. I'm afraid that I didn't handle it as faithfully as you did. Thanks for reminding us to be thankful in all circumstances and to look for the good -- even if it's simply a good hair day!

(((Tammy))) You have a great attitude--and I think we can all relate to a good hair day:)
