I decided to start this blog (2010) because my son, John-Robert gave me a One Year Bible for Christmas, the New Living Translation... reading it has changed my life... I post a daily Bible verse on my Facebook page every day and it has been well received... I thought that this would be a wonderful way to share part of what I read each day!... I hope that you enjoy it.

This Year 2012 I am going to do things a little different... not much...just a little. I am again reading through my One Year Bible (for the 3rd time). But I am also using "The Secret Power of Speaking God's Word" by Joyce Meyer. This book is divided by putting scriptures under different categories so they can be used to speak over our life situations. Each day I will read a category of scripture and pick a scripture in that category to write about.

Psalm 144:1 Praise The Lord, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle.

My Thoughts
I have never really looked down at my hands and thought to praise God for what my hands can do! My granddaughter is 5 months old. she is constantly amazed at her hands! We are amazed when her little hands do something new! God put those abilities in Sweet Ripley's hands. God puts abilities in my hands. God puts abilities in your hands.

When I have suffered arthritis from Lupus in my hands I have been frustrated at what my hands could not do, but have not thought to be thankful for when my hands could write, sew,  solder, draw, load the dishwasher, open a jar, tie my shoes, pet my animals, apply makeup, turn the page of a book, type on my computer, scratch an itch? I am not sure that I have! I know that if I have they were fleeting moments of thankfulness. But every day, every waking hour of every day and even in my sleep, I use my hands.

Oh the things we should and can be thankful for if we only stop to think! Today and hopefully every day forward, I will never look at my hands the same again. Thank you God, for all my hands can do!
