I thank God for helping me today, earlier this morning I did a supposed to be simple tooth extraction for one of my scheduled patient, but in the middle of the procedure things are becoming more complicated than expected, her tooth is breaking and cracking due to brittleness and so after struggling for quite sometime, I paused for awhile, inhaled and exhaled, say a little prayer and call to God for help that it won't turn into a major surgery as my assistant is not around and I can not cope by myself for a complicated case, and then face back my bleeding patient, work my way back again and voila, it finally came out. He is my very present help in time of need. God is good! 🙏🏼
Wonderful testimony..God is even interested in the pulling out of a patients tooth..to spare you the stress of having to deal with a complicated extraction...Glory to God..👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🕺🕺🕺🕺

knowing that He has helped us to 'over-come' our 'egos', they just don't NEED to be FED anymore' -
to be relieved of this is truly a miracle...

Today when I was waiting in line at the supermarket, a customer who was ahead of me got into a disagreement with the cashier but as I observed them, they managed to sort things out and the customer gave the cashier a generous tip that obviously made her day 😁. I thank God for His blessings on the cashier and that she will indeed see it as a blessing from God.

This happened yesterday, but I was bagging a customer’s groceries and they said: “I forgot to tell you I wanted them bagged light”, I said sorry but then she said: “No I’m sorry”

It made me think back to a past event, where something similar happened, but the customer was really mean, she said: “You should be able to look at a customer and tell if they need their groceries bagged lightly”. I honestly don’t believe in that, because it would be judging a person based on looks, which I think is not heathly, it’s actually something I struggle with, thinking a person is gay or a democrat based on they look, which I ask the lord to help me repent and change. Also, I just want to mention my 70 year old stepdad, he can lift heavy stuff, but he looks old, so that’s why I have my way of bagging groceries, not everyone is the same.

If a customer wants their groceries bagged heavy or light, just tell me, I don’t think it’s that hard.

But the way the customer acted yesterday, it just reminded me that good people do exist, and so I thank the lord for giving me this realization because it is a easy thing to forget, especially if you work at a job having to help/serve others, lol.

Amen. Amen. Thank you so much for sharing this.

May you keep a sweet spirit as you deal with the customers, and not let the rude ones get you down.

1Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

What are the little and big things or random things that you are thankful for?

Did something happen and you had to stop and say, my God is that you?

It could be a kind word or deed that was said that made you smile or was a blessing to you.

Whatever or whoever you want to give God thanks for, you can do it in this thread.
I’m thankful for the affordable care act In this pandemic.

Thank you Lord that the things of this world, the things that pass away are not the sum total of your love for us. You have given us a beautiful world and I am thankful for the warmth of the sun, the colours of the flowers and birds, laughter, spices, and friendships. I am in awe of how you bless us with so much more than things. You are the great I Am. You are the holy wild, and yet you would shelter me and the rest of your children, under your wing. Thank you the glorious hope that comes with knowing that there will be a time when I can go home and be with you.

Wonderful post. I am thankful for the same. I like the placing of spices there but I am not certain why. It just seems so right. We will all know at the banquet.

Yah bless you dear sister.

When we were growing up, most of what was used at home were salt and pepper, fresh garlics and onions, some cinnamon i think.. until we tried to get acquainted w/ others for baking: nutmeg, allspice, cardamom, mace... Now altho still not using many, I'm glad we've learned to use more for other cooks, incl. chilis, paprika, etc.

So much to be thankful for, big and small. Just my son taking over the cooking sometimes when ur full to the brim.. i'm so thankful=).

for His Holy Sacrifice/Love, and for desiring us mere humans to be a part of His great plan...
