4~ 3 Gifts hard to give thanks for

I thought this one was going to be hard. But I don't thinks so now. It has been a strange day of events.
1) Getting woke up at 5:20 in the morning by a ringing phone. Turns out it was for work which is a huge gift and blessing. But don't like be woke by ringing phones.

2) Losing my coat and keys that isn't a very fun thing at all. But....God has a sense of humor in all things. Glad to be home and getting ready for another full day tomorrow. Thank you to Wanda Ritter Saenz blessing me with coat'(s)

3) Having to wear protection gear in every room today. Take off throw away put on take off throw away all day. Thank God for the protection and for being able to clean the rooms. It isn't always easy to be thankful and see them as gifts. is a protection for me and I'm sure the patients as well.

‎5~ 3 Gifts found
Hard one for me today.......
1) I found lost pennies on the ground. I love picking them up........I always have. But I even like picking them up even more then I ever did before, when I was younger; Because I call them pennies from heaven. God is telling me He loves me. I also see them as a penny saved is a penny earned; along with I think every time I find one God is blessing me with more blessings. 
2) That we can always learn from anyone if we open our selves up to learn. That the classroom is always open for the student. That I need to always be open to learn everyday from even the youngest to the oldest teacher. Today it was a young woman at work. That you for allowing me to shadow you today for an hour o work Michelle in Linen and Garbage.
3) Found pretty pictures even in the dark dreary grey rainy sky of the day! Always looking for the beauty in the day. So that is a find.
What have you 3 gifts have you found today?

6~ A gift bent, broken, beautiful
My bent gift would be some of my keys on my various key rings to the many parts of my life. They each represent a key to which opens the door to that area of my life; which I have been blessed with. Reminds me I should replace some of them before they break. But they are bent from well use. 

Broken would be this ankle that has healed in many ways and is still healing. It represents how I have slowed down in some ways. How God has shown himself strong in my life and through this given me a stronger faith and belief that He can and does supply each and all of my needs beyond my wildest dreams.

Beautiful is the colors of my life that change each day but bring such joy. I love color and the color of each day changes as the weather. I love the richness of the color of each step and each stage of my life I live. Each colorful moment to be held and enjoyed as I walk through each one of them. That is true beauty.

7~ 3 Gifts in the kitchen
1) My dishwasher is surely a gift. I may not use it often. But.....when I do it makes life so much easier.
2) My coffee pot is a gift and anyone that knows me would agree. That my coffee post is a gift and blessing for all.
3) The calendar on the wall that gives me so much information. It is stocked full of more than jut dates. As I wrote little notes in the blocks about work, pay, appointments, and birthdays. You name it; it holds it. A huge gift that calendar is.

‎8~ 3 Gifts loud
Laughing out loud as I think of three loud gifts.
1) The music playing loudly bringing me smiles of joy. As I want to dance in the beauty of the sun.
2) My voice which is loud when I get excited!
3) My bird Hancho and her very loud squawks
What is your three loud gifts?

‎9~ 3 Gifts carved
Ummm.......This is a toughie!
1) I love the beauty of the carvings on the wood boxes and dresser my dear hubby has made. I so wish he would do wood work and cravings again. He does beautiful work.
2) The carved wood bowl my sister Christine Good brought back from Afghanistan. Beautiful bowl that you can use as a hot plate as well. It folds up. Very unusual and the beauty stunning. Thank you Christine for such a wonderful and beautiful gift.
3) The carved beauty of the day as I went through taking care of business, cleaning and just resting from a busy week. Enjoying the beautiful sunshine of the day. It was carved perfectly my our Lords hands.
What is your carved beauty?

10~ 3 Gifts in Christ 
1) His daily provision I find in Him everyday as I look to Him and not my situations or to man to meet them. Because all that I will ever need is found in Him.
2) His forgiveness that is so freely given to whom ever believes and seeks His face. He daily forgives every short coming I have. Because I am loved and covered in the blood of His son to be seen as white as snow.
3) His grace and love

What gifts and happiness have you found throughout your week?

A Holy Experience
Ankle View 
March 5,2013
Below are two fundraiser links to help with medical bills. 
We have no medical insurance to cover medical.
As the weeks have gone by since I have started back to work
The ankle continues to have many issues
I will be seeking second opinion
With many prayers 
I feel God is showing us
The direction to go.
God is faithful and I trust this is going to be paid in full;
and every need meet through Him
Thank you!

I'm so glad you are finding these bits of happiness amidst the struggle with your ankle. What happened to your ankle, Beth? Medical costs are so expensive. We have been through a difficult year with procedures as well. Praying God will make a way, my friend.

I broke my ankle July 24th and had to have surgey and they put a metal plate and six pins in to hold me together. Then I couldnt work or walk for almost five months. I went back to work in December and have had many issues since. But Praise god for every step I have made and how far I have come. I still am in doctors care and will be seeing him again next month to see where I am at. But bills and everything have piles up and am working very hard to pay everything off along with the medical that was far more than I could dream. God has been faithful though.
