One Thousand Gifts (980-993)

Continuing on my journey toward one thousand gifts....

Thank you Lord for your timing.

Sometimes it makes me laugh.

Last Tuesday (October 16th) at Bible Study someone mentioned the story of the workers in the field and how they were hired at different times throughout the day. Diane looked over to me with a questioning look and I said I'd find it and email it later.

The next day, I had to email her to ask what the topic was since I remembered I wanted to look something up for her, but could remember what it was.

Heavy sigh.

Good thing she has a working memory because after she replied, I was able to find Matthew 20:1-16 (The Story of the Vineyard Workers) and send it off to her.

Imagine my delight this morning when I open up The One Year Chronological Bible and the first reading for October 22nd?

Matthew 20:1-16.

I had to laugh!

980 - 993 on my list of One Thousand Gifts. I'm thankful for:

980. God's timing

981. Diane's good memory

982. watching Youngest Sweetie dig through my books

Yes, she reads upside down.

She's very smart!

983. celebrating Paula's birthday over breakfast

984. assignment received from the breakfast group regarding Luke 17:1-4 (on forgiveness)

985. looking forward to our next breakfast to discuss the assigned topic

986. receiving encouraging words (spoken and emailed)

987. the colors of Autumn. Even on gray, cloudy, rainy days the yellow leaves bring happiness to my soul.

988. thinking more about the term "Sandwich Generation" as I keep others in my prayers who are taking care of both their parents and children. Lord give us strength!

989. my brother-in-law finding permanent, full-time employment

990. an early morning stop-by to borrow a cooler by our daughter and our waving to Youngest Sweetie while she waited (patiently) in the car

991. hard eucharisteo: my sister-in-law getting laid off from her job. Sending encouragement and prayers in a card.

992. a Sunday afternoon walk with Wonderful Husband

993. my brother's birthday tomorrow (already clearing my throat to prepare to sing! Ha!)

Do you have memory challenges like me?
