Do you take anything for granted?

Doesn't this look odd, the prairie girl playing a game with brightly colored plastic pieces?
Or maybe to some it is odd that a sixteen year old is playing a game with a four year old.

I prayed last night with the girls, that He would bring to mind those things that we take for granted, so that we might praise him better for the gifts he has so graciously poured on us. He used this picture to do just that for me.

Thank You Lord for a kind and patient son, who is willing to play with his little sisters, and is helpful to me in so many ways.

Thank You too Lord for my little prairie girl who would love to live on a farm, and run in the wheat Fields, bare footed like Laura, but must be satisfied with one dog, and one cat, and a well cut lawn!

What do you take for granted?

After having cancer, I take little for granted now.

I forgot to add: I LOVE Little House. It was one of my favorite shows growing up. The prairie outfit is too adorable. I also wished I could have lived at that time.

I love LHOP too! That is such a sweet picture!!! You've given me something to think about today - I will consider what I take for granted. Health for one, I'm sure more will come to mind.
