pray without ceasing;
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
1 Thess. 5:16-18
However there are times that we just don't feel joyful, we don't feel thankful and we quite possibly don't feel like talking to God. It has been suggested that these three instructions actually go hand in hand. Some of us find on easier than the others to do. Also often went we don't feel like doing/being any of them if we just go "out on a limb" and do one of them we will likely find the others will follow soon after.
What do you think?
Sometimes we can follow all of these instructions at once and so I want to...
In Joyful prayer to my Loving God I am going to say Thanks!
#746 The irrepressible laughter of my children. It just makes me want to smile or even laugh too.
#747 Health. So many people I have been around have been sick and so far I haven't gotten it. I am grateful.
#749 "New" books from the library- and time to sit down and drink a cup of tea and read.
#750 A van that still starts even when it is really, really chilly outside!
#751 Fresh raw milk from the dairy.
#752 Browsing in the Asian food store and finding Seaweed so we can make Kim-bob.

#755 A nice crowd at church even though the thermometer showed a temperature very near 0.
#756 Singing songs of praise and thanks to God with others that love Him too.
