I am thankful for good health and the ability to work hard.  Spring brings lots of new growth and that means in weeds as well as the plants I want to see grow.  And weeding is hard work so I am glad for the strength and health to do it.

But while I am working out there in the yard, I sure am thankful for the lovely flowers God has given us.  Here are a few of them:

Finally, I am thanking God for the sweet sisters in Christ that I serve alongside of in an interdenominational Bible study in Crystal Lake.  I am especially thankful for the unity I have with them despite those denominational issues that could divide us but don't.

What are you thanking God for today?  Please do share.

Your flowers are beautiful, especially the peonies.

I'm thanking God for the rest time I will have during the summer break. I'm thankful for my teaching and glad I have a good balance.

I know I've said it before, but I'm thankful for you sharing your thankfulness! Your garden beds look lovely and well-cared-for.

What are the pink flowers behind the iris? I love the colour contrast!

Gorgeous flowers, Dorothy. My hydrangeas are budding out now, and I'm eager for the full bloom.

What lovely flowers you have! It reminds me of living in the south...there were lush flower beds everywhere. :)

The deep pink flowers behind the irises are roses, AuntE. I like the contrast too!
