Thankful Thursday


"I have told you this so that my joy may be in you
and that your joy may be complete"
John 15:11

When we get bogged down with setbacks in life, it is so easy to lose our joy, isn't it? So it has been with me in recent times.

Although God sent me rainbows, I was unable to hold on to the comfort and gladness for long.

Whatever your cross, whatever your pain
God always sends rainbows, after the rain

Then, for a period of time, this blue kingfisher kept appearing day after day. For a while, I would just stare at it without thinking much of its presence. But one day I started talking to it LOL.

"G'morning Mr. Bluebird. Here again? You sure look happy and handsome in blue! Wish I'm as joyful as you"

Later on in that same morning, as I was reading an email, one particular sentence struck me.

A sign in a pet store read "If anybody has seen the Bluebird of Happiness, would you please notify this pet store?"

I have. I was just talking to it this morning!

Bluebird of Happiness

Needless to say, the content of the email was a message to me. I did not realise how much joy I have lost as I struggled with recent troubles. I was reminded that I need to keep my joyfulness in all circumstances. For joy is often contentment in spite of unsettling present.

I'm thankful for His joy and that He did not give up on me eventhough I'm such a slow learner LOL.

I'm thankful that I'm HAPPY

We doggies are a happy lot, aren't we?

What are you thankful for today?

Sam I Am

What was that I've just heard?

LS took a peep outside and saw this

Is that you, Sam?

Remember the doggie that used to whine a lot and then he had moved out some time later? After that I had wished for a new doggie neighbour but that didn't happen. We did have a lovely couple from Virginia that moved in though. But it was all too soon before they headed back to Yorktown again.

Well, now Sam has moved back in again. Oh how he has grown! His barks are so much louder than mine and deeper too. No more whines too each time his humans go out.

Hmm...err...welcome back, Sam!

On another note, we would like to apologise to Mack and Sonic for this very belated thank you for these awards. Sorry it took us so long to post it. As usual, it's LS' fault.

Thank you, Mack!

Thank you Sonic!

Hope everyone is having a pawesome week so far!
