Thankful Thursday

Hosted by Iris

May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels. Psalm 122:7


LS : I'm thankful that the new houses across the road have finally transformed into proper homes with occupants. For the past 4 years, the whole place was filled with sound and noises from all the construction, renovations, trucks and workers shouting...think you can imagine what it's like at a construction site. Oh and not to mention all the dust!

I didn't realise that I've gotten used to all that till few days back when it suddenly dawned on me how quiet the whole place is. And I really love the peace and quiet!

But this has also made me realised how thankful I am to have a peaceful and safe haven inside my own home despite all the chaos outside LOL!



Happy: I'm thankful that I have a safe haven too. As you know, recently Google said I needed a home. That got me worried for a bit but LS reassured me that we still have our home. And I'm also thankful for all our wonderful friends who offered me a home when I shared my concern with them on what Google said. I'm really touched to have so many kind and caring friends. Thank you dear friends!

This is me chilling out amidst the peace and quiet.
(the picture's a bit blurry as LS didn't know how to use the camera heh...)


Hope everyone is having a thankful time too!

It is indeed wonderful to have a peaceful and safe haven inside our own home despite all the chaos outside, LS. I am thankful for that too. And thank God for the peace He gives to us no matter what we go through in this life! Thanks for sharing your thankful heart with us. Take care and may God's peace be with you always.

How fun to drop by Serendipity Park! They're building behind my house right now--all night long last night putting in a water line. So I can appreciate your thankfulness for peace and quiet!

Oh my, I couldn't stand 4 years of noise from a construction site. I thought it was bad when he repaved our street and was 4 months. I would have had to move.

Take care and thanks for stopping by and commenting on my TT.
