Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday is hosted here at Spiritually Unequal Marriage in January. 
"But my God shall supply all your need
according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus"
Philippians 4:19 (KJV)
I am so thankful that water heaters can be replaced this week. Ours went out on Saturday or Sunday. It blew the breaker- Since it is a two element water heater, it seems that maybe only one element is out because we get about 1 1/2 minutes for a shower and I am probably being generous. So far we have not had time to find out if it is strictly an element issue or if it is the water heater needing to be replaced. Thankfully Sunday is just a few more days away and we will be able to find out.
I forget how often we use the water heater. It affects a great deal, doing dishes, taking showers, washing clothes. The good thing is it too can be replaced or fixed. It seems like we keep getting thrown back to the old days of life. No central heat, no central ac, we have had trouble this past summer with no toilet, no kitchen sink, no pluming. It really makes you think how comfortable life is with simple amenities. Overall, I am incredibly thankful to have a roof over our head even if we have situations arise to make us appreciate the little things in life.
On a larger scale I am thankful to my husband this week who will pull some extra hours tomorrow night. I am also thankful he brought me some Peanut M&M's, I did not even ask him, he just stopped and picked up that and some scissors for the kitchen- which I desperately needed. Super sweet.


  1. Bad time of the year for cold showers. Yikes!

    Any husband that brings chocolate is one to hang onto.

    Lots to be thankful for when we start looking. I hope you get an extra special blessing today to add to your list.

  2. It's so wonderful to be reminded of the "small" blessings that we often take for granted.

  3. Peanut M&M's! He's a keeper!! I hope it's just an element that's out and is easily replaced! Makes you really appreciate those things, when you go a few days without.
    Thank you Jesus for all those little things we forget to thank you for!!
    Happy TT
