Thankful 30: Day 8–Refrigerator Art

I joined (belatedly) Emily’s* 30 Day Challenge:

I’m challenging myself to post a picture every day during the month of November (30 Days To Be Thankful For) and to add a caption as to why I am thankful.

Day 8, November 8

Thank you, Lord, for photos, drawings, clippings, invitations, and cards that amass on my refrigerator.  I put the newest items on the front and then retire them to the side when I add something new to the gallery.  I am sometimes irritated by the clutter, but I need to remember it means I have family and friends, as well as church family.

I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy . . . It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart . . .  Philippians 1:3,4,7

Thank you for the niece who drew the illustration for an idea shared at a retreat.

Thank you that this letter “F” now reminds me more of friends and family than failure.  (The full story of the letter “F” magnet is here.)

Thank you for the many friends who encourage me, like the one who generously shares photos like these for me to use on this blog.

I thank my God every time I remember you.

These refrigerator art images jog my memory, which prompts me to be thankful and to pray with joy.

What’s on your refrigerator, and how does it encourage thankfulness?
