I’m not proud of the way this week started. In the words of All Sons And Daughters, I am a sinner, if it’s not one thing it’s another. I am thankful the Lord doesn’t remember my sins. Thankful. It’s my word for 2015.


517. Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. (‭Psalm‬ ‭73‬:‭25-26‬ ESV)

518. Stingrays and manatees.

519. Smoothing over family troubles as best as possible and remembering I need to forgive 7×70 times.


520. A family that forgives me when I don’t deserve forgiveness.

521. Feeling ashamed means I have a conscience.

522. Cycling.


523. Incline my heart to your testimonies, and not to selfish gain! Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways. (‭Psalm‬ ‭119‬:‭36-37‬ ESV)

524. Despite my worst efforts, my family still speaks to me.

525. <— symmetry


526. <— landed on —> 6/25 palindromes.

527. Let your steadfast love come to me, O Lord, your salvation according to your promise; then shall I have an answer for him who taunts me, for I trust in your word.

and I shall walk in a wide place, for I have sought your precepts. (‭Psalm‬ ‭119‬:‭41-42, 45‬ ESV)

528. The skills to be on a team that saved a woman from bleeding to death from a ruptured ectopic pregnancy.


529. The Lord is allowing me to do a lot of emergency surgery since I got my new contract to work in a level 1 trauma center. Preparation.

530. For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him. You have done foolishly in this, for from now on you will have wars.” (‭2 Chronicles‬ ‭16‬:‭9‬ ESV) I love the truth in this verse. The whole verse.

531. 3 weeks to go. Almost there!


532. Found a place to live! It’s huge AND affordable.

533. This is the first of the last 3 weekends in Florida and I don’t have to work!

534. Bless the Lord oh my soul.


535. We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks, for your name is near. We recount your wondrous deeds. (‭Psalm‬ ‭75‬:‭1‬ ESV)

536. Thanks to a lady I met on the ship, I signed up to volunteer with Remote Area Medical USA for a clinic in Lexington Kentucky in the fall.

537. That same friend is going to join me there!

Happy Sunday!

Thankful to join Give Me Grace

  1. Let me know when you’re in Lexington – I’ll try to come up for lunch or coffee? – and palindromes? I want to know more about your palindromes that make you thankful! Your list is such a list of overcomings – either for yourself or for others! God is good!

    • Oh hey Maryleigh! It would be great to meet you when I’m in Lexington. And I guess I’m quite geeky at heart because I’m thankful for number combinations and symmetry.? I’m okay with that. 😁
