I've neglected my 1000 thank-yous list for some months.  Nevertheless, those months have been filled with good things and blessings.  I need to start up again.

484.  a clean house
485.  wisdom from kids
486.  shooting stars
487.  a view of Mars
488.  seeing happiness and peace in others
489.  a husband with an even keel
490.  a children's sermon
491.  a new refrigerator

From the Mouthes of Babes

The youngest four out of five kids in a foster family were in my Sunday School class today.  They are all great kids, but I think I felt in control of  the class no more than 75% of the time, even with only four students.

At prayer time I asked if anyone had anything they wanted us to pray about.  The 7 year old answered, without hesitation:  "My mom.  Cause we live in a foster family.  My mom needs a job and a house.  She needs a car and money."

"OK, would you like to pray for her?" I asked.

So she did.  Then her baby sister started yelling, "I want to pray, I want to pray."  :-)

So she had her turn: "Thank you for my mom's job, and for her house, and for her car and her money."

It isn't just a saying--sometimes it really happens!
