May 27 to June 2

After our recent sermons about God's goodness and faithfulness I wanted to write a reminder to myself and others about why I write these lists. These are to remind me of God's blessings and to let others see God's goodness in the every day goings of life. We live in a hard world, but God is good and faithful to His people. These are longs lists and I honestly do not expect people to read everyone, but to me it's worth recording God's blessings and give Him praise for His goodness everyday.
