[what if…?]

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • I also love hot water. Its that overseas living that makes you appreciate it 🙂
    I sorta wrote about this today… I’m thankful for His grace, the raindrops on my windshield, a car, fingers to type, a voice to speak, laughter from children, dark chocolate, my water bottle, being reminded that counting His gifts to us is a gift in itself…..
    sending love to your part of the world today, Zen!

    • Heh, God’s sense of humor is ironic at times – I walked into the bathroom this morning to find out that there’s no hot water. And I definitely needed to wash my hair because there’s a very important event tonight… so I tried to brave cold water (which usually works okay, but the water was icy cold), so I ended up with a shampooish mohawk on my head waiting for the water to heat up in a teapot… *Sigh*… 

      Btw, raindrops on the windshield are cool. I like riding in the car when it’s raining.Thanks for stopping by, Bekah! 🙂 

  • Epic list there. My wife actually just finished up a pretty cool thing… She listed 1000 things she was thankful for on her Facebook statuses, and that was all she posted til she reached the end (a couple of days ago). 

    I started, but only got to like 32 because I did it in my journal, and now I don’t even know where my journal is… =)

    • WOW. I like Kalyn’s idea. Did she post one every day or she posted several times a day?

    I’m thankful for many things, too.  When we left Uganda 5 times and came home, my husband was always happy to turn on the faucet and drink the water.  No need for boiling and filtering.  I was happy for hot showers.  And flushing toilets.  Here, I’m thankful for the Lord dropping dear ones into my life… especially my Bhutanese families [about 50 people that I’m involved with in a wild variety of ways].  However, a thankful bit at this moment that I wouldn’t have thought of:  I received a book from a contact in Singapore… have never met her, but edited a book she had written and she has sent me wonderful gifts occasionally, but I hadn’t heard from her for about a year.  The book is written by a former Hindu.   I think I’m supposed to focus on reading it, so will.  But I never would have expected a book or gift… and it came!  How kind of our dear Father to give me a surprise present.   Thank you for sharing and making the rest of us dig into our hearts and seek thankfulness.

    • Nice – unexpected gifts are the best kind. What’s the book about?

      • Joanne Norton

        It’s called The Maharishi of Mt. Hailash.  I have no idea what it will be like, but supposed to be the story of a Christian hermit in a Himalaya cave about 400 years ago.  I’ll read in in the next few days. 

  • I would like to say ditto but there are some things in your list I cannot relate to.  Your authors. Snowboarding.  Cats!  But I can ditto to many of them. And can add: my wife, my girls, my grandson, the church I pastor, being able to bike, and you.  🙂

    • Sorry bro 😀 But together, we can be thankful for more things than just you or I alone 🙂 So if you take all kinds of people, we can be truly thankful to God for everything 🙂

      I am thankful for you too, big brother 🙂
