Thursday Pearls


Thank God for dirty dishes;
they have a tale to tell.
While other folks go hungry,
we're eating pretty well.
With home and health and happiness,
we shouldn't want to fuss;
For by this stack of evidence,
God's very good to us.

With love on this beautiful Thursday...

I wonder who the author of such a witty and interesting poem was. Thanks for sharing it! God is, indeed, so good to us, sometimes I'm even ashamed that I cannot give Him more in my prayers. Still, I pray every minute for everything He gave us.
God bless you and keep you and yours,
Tiffany Ellie Dane

Ah, yes, this is the only way to look at dishes when one is washing so many of them - hehe! But it's so true that we have so very much to be thankful for, and one is the great blessings of food and provision God has given each of us. Thank for your for short and precious pearl today, sweet friend! Hugs and sending prayers for your dear mom!
