Monday Praises

 It is good to give thanks to the Lord, 
to sing praises to the Most High.
It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning,
your faithfulness in the evening.
You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me!  
I sing for joy because of what you have done.
Psalm 92:1-2, 4

Happy Monday!  It's time to count our blessings again.  Here's what is on my list:

103.  Taking the Gospel to the streets
104.  Women who are willing to be used by God
105.  Seeing the church transition from a building to God's people
106.  Open windows
107.  Cooler weather for the official start of summer
108.  Games of ping pong with my son

109. Sunday afternoon naps


110.  Kitty caretakers

111.  Mozzarella sticks from Sonic
112.  Thunderstorms
113.  Safety in the storms

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  Psalm 91:1

114.  A hubby who will go to the store just to get more creamer for my coffee
115.  Texting
116.  HGTV
117.  Seeing a great turnout for the neighborhood block party
118.  People who leave a living legacy
119.  New blog designs
120. A good night's sleep in a comfy bed

In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O LORD, will keep me safe.  Psalm 4:8

121.  We were without power for about an hour this morning due to wind damage from the storms overnight.  I think God used that to remind me of something else I'm thankful for - electricty!
122.  Washer, dryer and dishwasher
123.  Fans that provide a breeze and white noise while I'm sleeping
124.  Clocks 
125.  Smart phones that help me feel connected when the power is out.

What's on your list?

Counting my blessings and participating in
Multitudes on Monday at A Holy Experience.


  1. Hi Lisa
    What a great verse to start the week off with.
    God bless

  2. Love that new blog look! But, my heart still goes out to your dog who has to share his chair. ;)

  3. Good morning friend :) What a great list! I'm thankful for an umbrella during a very strong down pour. Electricity that was on when we got home this morning. Clean clothes and a trashcan for a sick little girl who hasn't thrown up again yet. A dry home to come back to and a God who hears my prayers even to turn on the power again.

  4. Number 114 of your list made me laugh out loud this morning as my husband looked up from his news. He often goes out for me just to get my coffee mate for coffee.

    I'm grateful that I got up this morning, that I belong to a wonderful church and am apart of the teaching and winning the lost.

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog today, Lisa, and for your kind words. I enjoyed your list as well! We truly do live blessed lives, always. Take care!

  6. Great list.

    I am thankful for:

    1) A wonderful turn out to our church block party and receptive people.
    2) Wonderful people to work with in ministry.
    3) The opportunity to meet my husband's father five years ago.
    4) A chance to sleep in today since it has been such a busy weekend.
    5) My daughter to get her braces off today.
    6) God's Word
    7) Christian music that encourages me and gives me comfort.
    8) A great hubby!
    9) Sweet tea.
    10) Home grown veggies

  7. Oh and love the new look! I love autumn, though I am so not ready for summer to speed by! :)

  8. I love the "nap" picture! :)
    And I love your new look, very nice!
    I identify with just about everything on your list...oh, I think that we should be neighbors! ;)

  9. Wonderful list of thanks, I appreciate the Psalms you shared as well! I'm counting gifts at

  10. I love Sunday afternoon naps, I took one myself yesterday sitting in a lawn chair on my patio. And I love # 103 and 104. I am trying to be more intentional in letting God use me. I don't remember where I read this but this person bought a pack of sticky notes and wrote Bible verses on them and she would carry them with her and stick them on mirrors in public rest rooms. I think I may have to start doing that.

    Blessings to you Lisa.

  11. I love the cat and dog photo. Unity amidst diversity...just like all these blogs sharing our grateful hearts.

  12. What a wonderful, and extensive list this week Lisa!

    Love the new look as well! I'm ready for fall... LOL

    Have a Blessed Day!

  13. Since I've lost count, I'll just list a few:
    *World Changers
    *Parents willing to take care of my kids so I can go be a 'World Changer'
    *Peanut butter milkshakes
    *Shriner's Hospital
    *my nosy 10 month old

  14. Fun list! I love the picture of the puppy and kitty. Though I prefer cats over dogs, Beagles are my absolute favorite! Also, I haven't tried the mozzarella sticks from Sonic yet, but now I think I will!

  15. I agree about the sonic cheese sticks..yummy. Love your list. Blessings on your week
