~Thankful Thursdays~

It has been a while since I have done a 'Thankful Thursdays'


There is so much to be thankful for.

My page of thankfulness would be covered with thanksgivings.

Today it is the 'song in my heart'.

My sister Jane and I used to pick out the tune of songs on our tiny little piano we got for Christmas one year. We would spend hours pecking out the notes. Jane and I would sit in the back seat of the car as we were going places and sing. I would sing the melody and Jane would do the harmony. Mom and Dad never stopped us. I am sure sometimes we were very loud. There are times when Tom and I are in the car and I just can't help myself. I have to sing. I especially enjoy listening to the music of the area where I am. The sound of the island drums in Antigua, Spanish music in New Mexico, tunes from India and China. Music is an international language. I enjoy watching the musicals the schools present. I relish concerts that I can close my eyes and soak up the musical notes floating in the air. I love music. It is so uplifting and expresses the feelings we have within our hearts. I am so thankful that the Lord gave me the love of music.

"Sing to God, sing praise to his name, extol him who rides on the clouds--his name is the LORD--and rejoice before him."-Psalms 68:4

I’ve always loved the idea of a picket fence too! It conjures up the image of a quiet and peaceful home. The fact that they’re not closed keeps you open to the world, and yet upholds your privacy. Functionally, it lets strong winds pass through, so they’ll stand a lot longer than closed fences. I think it’s so cute how you all got together to put it up and paint it, by the way. Great job!
