Spiritual Sundays ~ Sunday Seven

1. I’m praising God for answered prayer. I asked Him to send our office a buyer so that we can start the year off with a sale. We have four sales!
2. When I was in San Diego two weeks ago, my 95-year-old mother called us with stomach pain and thought she would have to go to the hospital. We prayed and the Lord healed her. We praise Him!

3. I’m praising God for the extra time I’ve had to be with my daughter and granddaughter. We have enjoyed a long visit since the holidays and they just left for home a few days ago.
4. I’m grateful for God’s protection. He kept us safe as we made the trip to San Diego and then back to Arizona as well as their final trip home again.

5. Laughter is medicine for the soul. I laugh at myself when I think of all the silly songs I’ve been singing with my granddaughter that I re-learned at her library story time. And the Hokey-Pokey…I’m getting good at it.

6. Praise God for encouraging us with all we learn about Him in trials. I was able to encourage a client this week whose house burned down. What a great feeling to know His strength uplifted her through our conversation about the hard times. This is just as important as selling her a home, don't you think?

7. Lastly, I’m praising God for the wonderful family He gave to me. Last weekend we were all together at my house. They got a cake from the bakery, purchased a helium machine and filled the house with balloons. My birthday is Monday the 31st! I am blessed.


Praise the Lord for all of you, my friends, and your Jesus-filled blogs that I love to visit. We are blessed to have such an inspiring place as Spiritual Sundays, hosted by Charlotte and Ginger.

  2. Alleluia! God is so good. I just read Clif's post about praise and worship. God is indeed worthy of that. Your "thankful list" is wonderful, and stands testament to His greatness :)

  10. Happy Birthday sister Mary!!! Sending you love and prayers your way and may the Lord bless you with His richest spiritual blessings!

    It's awesome that despite trials, He pours joy into our hearts! Glory be to God for all that He does and all things He gives us to make His presence known. That there is no excuse but to BELIEVE and increase FAITH! I feel your prayers along with other dear friends and glory be to the One Who gets moved with our petitions and Who can change circumstances. Please pray that my managers will accommodate me to remain working part time, 8 hours per shift. But I pray that let the Lord's will be done. My son? He is one of my greatest blessings and I praise the Lord for His guidance and wisdom! I am happy that you got to spend time with your family! I'm praying always for the Lord to bless you all and keep you!!! Love to you sister!
