"Even when the rainbow seems to pass right by me....I'm still finding Gold in the clouds....."

Praise Post #22

I'm  joining Jerralea's Journey blog as we number gifts He's given us during the month of November.  Each day I'll be sharing five things that I am thankful for.  Doing that for 30 days will produce 150 things we are grateful for...and it's easy to find those gifts if we take a moment to look.  You are welcome to join in!  Just head over to Jeri's!

Today I'm thankful for:

  1. The forgiveness we have in Jesus Christ as Savior/Redeemer
  2. My Bible.  I have 3 Bibles (I actually have more that don't get used as much) I often use throughout the month:  the Soul Care Bible in NKJV that I typically use for leading the small group; the Women of Faith Devotional Bible, again in NKJV that I use for my daily reading time and the one I usually bring to church; and the Bible App for my iPad..the YOU version that has several versions you can download along with daily devotional plans and Scripture verses of the day.  I never want to take my Bible for granted......some countries are not allowed to even have a Bible in the home....can you imagine?  
  3. Email.  This is how I stay in touch with Dave's extended family and his parents and I stay in touch with long distance friends this way.  It's also a helpful tool for sending out small group announcements that are too long for a text message!
  4. Texting.  I love this.....even though I still have a slider cell phone and not a smart phone like everyone else in my family, I can still text my college daughter and keep in touch with afterschool schedules with my teenager.  I also text my close friends throughout the week and vice versa.  It's a great piece of technology!
  5. Facetime messaging.  I don't do it often but I love that feature on my iPad...especially when I long to see the face of my princess away at college.
What are you thankful for today?  If you leave a comment, you will be entered into a pool of names and I'll be drawing a winner for a little treat on the last day of November.

I also appreciate emails and text. I do have a smart phone now but don't use near all of its features. I think I was just as happy with my other phone. I have several Bibles too but my favorites are a NKJ and a Kenneth Copeland KJV study Bible.

A precious list today, Faith. I also have a number of different Bibles that I use, depending on where I'm at in the house and what it is I'm studying.

Technology is indeed a blessing!

Thanks for sharing such wonderful things with us today.

Yay! I'm glad to find out I'm not the only one that does not have a smart phone. I have a slider cell also where I can text my sweeties. It's the best way to keep up with them.

I have the YouVersion of the bible on my Ipad, too. I use it to take to church. It is so convenient.
